You’re not on the sidelines, in the crowd, or watching from afar.
You’ve decided to step up and play.
Maybe it’s just defense or only passing the ball around.
Or maybe you’ve even taken a few shots and missed.
But while you’re still in the game playing, you can always figure out your next move.
Navigate to here, pivot to there, attempt this move, try that approach.
While playing you continue to identify your strengths and weaknesses.
As you’re conditioning and doing the drills, you’re figuring things out.
You have teammates that provide suggestions for getting better.
You have coaches with experience to show you the correct steps to take.
You have the game-plan to strategize and determine what to do next.
You can even take a time-out or a water break if you need it.
Wipe some of the sweat off.
But after that, get back in.
The clock hasn’t buzzed yet.
The game isn’t over.
The fans (YOUR fans) are still watching.
Waiting for you to win.
