To be a team player, you have to be on the team. Not just in “spirit” but actual presence is required at some point. It’s easy to wear the uniform and show up to the game but it requires participating in practice before game day.
Success is not just going to fall in our laps, we are going to have to put forth some effort to make it happen. Your ability may get you on the team but it’s practice that hones your skills and determines your “play” time. Don’t ride the bench of life content with just being on the team; be an active, productive asset. They say there is no “I” in team, I beg to differ. If “I” don’t do my part, the team will not be as affective as it should.
We each have a significant part to play, so let’s get our heads in the game. When life puts you “in”, make your time in count and give it your all; the team needs YOU!
