Motivation For Soccer
This is the best video I have seen thus far.
How It All Came to Be
When I was a young pup, I enjoy to play soccer a lot and came to join a soccer team at my local school. The coach says to me that I am a good goalkeeper. So therefore, goalkeeper should be my main position.
We played various friendly matches, trained very hard, and I even played soccer for fun on my spare time. My team was the best team ever, or so I thought.
The Last Match Began
Then, the final match began. The scorching sun came about at the final soccer game that would decide who would win it all and who will lose everything we worked so hard to achieve, and so it began.
The game began: The score was even at 1-1 in the few first seconds of the match. I thought to myself this is strange. No one has ever scored a goal on me. Then, I noticed this team was the other best soccer team that played at our local school!
After a few seconds: minutes felt like hours, and hours felt like days! Neither team refused to give up or give in under the scorching sun and pressure!
The Final Penalty Shoot-out Was Announced
Then all of the sudden, the final whistle was blown after extra time was played; to declare and announce the penalty shoot-out the score was still tied 1-1.
So it began the final penalty shoot-out: we got ready as I was getting ready at the goal; I had to stop the ball. Barely able to withstand such pressure, I somehow managed to stop the ball gracing my arm and deflecting it barely enough to miss the goal.
In a penalty shoot-out, each team takes turns shooting at the goal from the penalty mark, with the goal only defended by the opposing team’s goalkeeper.
There were more: I try to stop what felt like an insurmountable amount of rapid fast pace objects, strong hitting projectiles heading straight into my face and prevent the ball from scoring a goal deflecting them with my hands.
Each team has five shots which must be taken by different kickers; the team that makes more successful kicks is declared the victor.
That Fateful Evening
That fateful evening: The score of penalty kicks is 1-2 in favor of the opposing team. I was next and the fourth player to try to kick the ball into the goal during the penalty shootout to try and even the score.
At the end, I missed the goal: the ball passed close by the side of the goal barely missing the goal. I was in shock.
This is the most Shocking and most fateful evening in a soccer match I ever experienced, my team lost their first game during the final match, that fateful evening was a life changing experience:
I Failed and start to doubt myself,
My Biggest Fear came about: Failure, I and my team lost the game.
One of the greatest trials in my life Begin: I have to defeat the Enemy Within.

Enter The Shadows: The Enemy Within
Only me and my team are left in the field pondering: What are we doing wrong?
We see our shoes and see that our shoes are used and thorn, hurting our feet.
Then we see: The Sun was no more, darkness arose from every corner; it was nighttime, the time of darkness.
The Shadows in the darkness sprint from the outskirts of the field.
Our greatest rivals the Shadows appear before us; an embodiment of our fears, doubts, and failure.
The Home Team vs The Shadow Team
Then, the soccer game begins; the Home team vs the Shadows team.
Where the winning team will be crown VICTORIOUS, and the losing team will lose their DREAMS, HOPES, and MEMORIES that will be no more from the face of the earth!
Deja Vu: The Same Game Again?
Just as before it was as if we are playing the same exact match again, but this time hours feel like days, and those days feel like years. Even bigger doubts pass through my mind.
Is the past repeating itself?
We are tied 1-1, but we are burn out and I Can’t feel my legs from playing what seem like days, yet at the same time my feet Hurt so much from the worn shoes I am wearing.
Then, I feel like years pass me by, and the Sun as yet to come out?
As the final whistle is blown, It comes time for penalty shoot-outs.
Only better soccer equipment may give me and my team a fighting chance against the shadows.
