Do You Play With a Team or a Family?
Most teams struggle because they don’t know whether they are a team or a family.
Often they’re a basic mixture of both.
I have played on many teams and some times you play because it is what you do as an athlete but you don’t have a genuine concern for the other players on your team and some times you feel like you are playing on a team with all of your brothers.
Motivation can be fuelled when playing with family with your brothers and sisters…
so ask yourself – Am I playing with a team or a family?
Now more importantly ask yourself does my team think you are a teammate or a brother / sister
Family trumps team
If you don’t know the answer here is a little rule of thumb… your teammates will celebrate your wins with all of their heart.
So, weather you score 3 goals a game or 1 goal a season they will jump all over you like you just won the Stanley Cup
