Don’t Expect to Be Given Anything. Stand Up and Take it!

When we were training at the gym today, we had a conversation about a college player that was pissed off because he said the team was “screwing him”.  What was the problem?  They brought in another kid that was a “beast” at the same position.
I don’t consider that getting screwed over.  Your team is trying to get better.  If you want to be the starter, stand up and take it.  If you ball hard enough and the other kid who is going after the same position is still better than you, there are always other positions out there.  That other kid and his ability better give you the motivation to take that job.  There are cases where players get a job because of favoritism.  In the NFL it can happen because they have money invested in one player but not another.  It’s hard to admit that you made a mistake when you invest big dollars into someone.  But this kid told us himself that they brought in a solid player.  The team is trying to get better and you should want to do that for yourself.
If you are already the starter it’s your job to keep not your job to lose.  There is always someone out there that wants to take it from you.  It’s the same thing in the real world.  Earn it, take it, get after it.
