Journal 2: In your own life, when was a time when you felt defeated? How did you regain your confidence? (Chapter 2)
One time I felt defeated was when in one season of soccer and we all had 0 confidence and really no belief in ourselves, the next season we worked harder than I have ever worked before and we regained our confidence and it didn’t go down throughout the season. We kept working really hard and kept practicing and we had lots of success that season.
