Hey gang! I just finished playing some ice hockey and boy, am I tired! The team we played was very good and we lost the game, but as always I had a lot of fun which is what is really important.
My team and I knew coming into this game that it was going to be an uphill battle, but if we competed hard and gave one hundred percent we would be proud of ourselves no matter what the final score was.
Putting as much effort as you can into anything you do is very important. Whether you are playing sports, cleaning your room or learning to read you should always try your best.
When you give one hundred percent you can always be proud of yourself because you know that you gave it your best shot. No one can be the best at everything they do, but everyone can give their best regardless of what they do.
Effort is also something that you should appreciate from others. When you work or play with or against someone who gives their all it is something that you should recognize as a terrific thing.
Seeing someone try their best and give everything they’ve got can also be very inspiring and motivating to you and to others. When someone is giving it everything they’ve got I know that pushes me to give my all as well.
I hope I was able to help you understand the importance of trying your hardest and always giving it your best. I’ll catch you on the ice!
