WHAT ARE VICTORIES, AND WHAT ARE DEFEATS? (1)
Sadness (after losing) and happiness (after winning) are not two opposite feelings. They are two puzzles of growing up. To protect children of one of them is disabling them and in a long - term is a limiting factor in any sport and in personal development.
To become an adult with no limitation it is of utmost importance that a child experience enough defeats.
Creating a youth champion team, usually in some form of the federation academy or in richest clubs, emotionally cripples children and an endless number of team victories in the youth over time turns into one big personal defeat of individual player.
On the other hand, grow up of a talented kid in the team, which is enough average to force him to give all of himself for each victory, but lost enough games enough even though he was the best on the field, is the best environment for the creation of a future champion.
