We end almost every class with a game of dodgeball. It’s a fun, high-energy and exciting game. The practicality of this game goes beyond footwork to avoid a ball or fast hand reaction to protect ourselves from being struck.
But I want to equate dodgeball with life because it’s not the score that matters, it’s how you react that does. Happy, healthy, and confident individuals react to being hit in stride. They don’t let it effect their attitude and continue to look forward.
Others react with anger, frustration, and betterment toward being hit. It affects their attitude to the point that the rest of their day is ruined.
The next time you play dodgeball, think about your reaction and understand that it’s your choice to continue this cycle.
