An educator is not here to disable you by telling you what to do all the time.  That type of education makes you dependent on on teacher or distracted by the teacher as you try to gain enlightenment on your own path in life.  An educator's goal is to give you choices and educate you to the wisdom and consequences of those choices.  It is only then that true learning takes place away from the teacher and inside your own mind and soul.

The idea that a team can be successful any long term run without benefit to to the least talented members on the team only that shows that winning a particular game or games without positive participation from all is actually harmful in the long run. The gap between the haves and the haves not widen and effort decreases. The very definition of team excludes "me" and values inclusion over separation. The win is cheapened by that lack of inclusion.

Isnt it interesting that most people who clamor for winning over participation in youth sports are unhappy at home or work. They think winning will cure all ills. What they dont see is that winning becomes like a drug. The more you do the less effect it has on you. You want more and more , but its never enough, and the good feeling you got from winning in the beginning is harder and harder to find Winning becomes a crutch.

Let's talk about momentum. It has been stated by many pundits that Eli and the Giants are peaking at the right time. Lets examine. The Giants had been struggling. they faced a team in the Cowboys who had been struggling. Fact, In a game like this one team will lose. So the Cowboys struggled and the Giants won. A lot of times in a team sport, one team loses the game instead of the other team winning. Then a dysfunctional Jets team. They imploded. Giants win. Now they are feeling better about themselves true. falcons next, and another victory Next against the Packers who did not have a good they win. Great

. So if the momentum theory is correct why do teams try to win early in the season? Why bot sit back lose, and then turn it on when the playoffs approach? Because momentum, game to game does not exist, confidence does though. What if both teams are hot? Again the theory does not hold true. What does happen is convergence and timing. Your world as an athlete converges with the other team and the confidence you have allows you and your team to be successful. If not the Patriots would not have lost to the Giants.
Confidence and momentum can are confused with each other. There is momentum in a game for sure, but it is confidence and timing that lead to winning streaks. confidence leads to you being relaxed and when you are relaxed you play better.When you play better you are more relaxed and and the game slows down for you because the stress that tenseness causes zaps your reserve and you tie more quickly. That in turn causes you to make mistakes.
