I’m a Baylor Bears fan. I enjoy rooting for the Bears. It’s where my son, Ryan, graduated and how I became fond of the place.
So, as a fan, I receive an email the day before the next big game from former Baylor Bears quarterback Nick Florence (2009-12) called In the Huddle.
In the email, Nick shares his perspective of what the players and coaches are going through in preparation for the game.
Today’s email was different.
Nick shared how you approach the game when you lose.
He said you approach it differently and with a different mindset than when you win.
And what caught my attention is what followed.
Nick said we’ve got to learn, get better, make adjustments, and move forward.
As fans, we tend to immediately go to doom and gloom after a big loss.
The sky is falling.
Nick said, “I think we’re going to learn a lot about what this team is made of. How does this team respond to adversity?”
A loss makes you evolve and learn to respond better.
It makes you ask better questions.
Can we take one step forward?
Can we be better than we were last week?
The same goes for you and me. When you face some failure, taste adversity, are weary and tired, can you muster the courage to take a step forward and become better this week than you were last week?
So if that’s where you are at today. No sweat. It’s okay.
Move forward — even if it’s just a step.
