No I in Team

No I

Yesterday I was reading an article about the downfall of the New York Jets. Yes, I love hearing bad news for the New York Jets, by growing up as a New England Patriot fan. Anyways, what I heard was kind hard to swallow and something I never expect to hear from anyone who plays sports on a team. It was the blame game where this player is the blame, we can’t win with him, it’s all his fault, he is just isn’t good enough for the rest of the team to move forward. Now that is no way to be a team player by throwing others under the bus and not accepting the fact when you loss it’s as a team and you never let them take the blame for it.

This is everyday life, you are always are on some sort of team. In school you have classmates you work with, friends, coworkers, etc. All of them depended on you in some way and you depend on them in some way. You all work together towards common goals. This means when it fails, you can’t go public saying so and so did it wrong and that’s why we failed. In honesty, you are on the same team and chances are you seen the information before it was turned in or it was finished. Means that you messed up also and everyone on the team dropped the ball.

Like the Jets had a team failure, there is also team success. When you look at teams like the Green Bay Packers who never slam each other and hold faith in each other, they win and they don’t stop winning.  It just comes down to understand that you win as a team and loss as a team. There is no I in team, no matter how AWESOME you think you are. Without your team, you are truly nothing.

Just remember this as you go through life and when your team fail at something. It’s okay, you learn from the mistake and become better. If you have a problem with a teammate take it up with them in private, not in public. Fix the issues, move on, and become better.

Being a team player is key in this Savage World; that you are no longer just living in, but beginning to own.
