The collective goal is to win, yet in their development each person progresses to enable the overall team success. Each individual is responsible for their own action, knowing every person relies upon their commitment in training. Trust and respect are crucial components.
Good leadership is not only getting people to follow you, but training all your followers to become leaders. At any point you can be called upon to be the leader or at least understand the leaders goal so you can collectively work to achieve it.
Individual success depends on many things, one of the most important is what you are doing differently or better than your opponent. Are you ready to commit to the effort required?
No plan survives first contact. There are inevitable factors out of your control that are going to effect your performance. Planning and preparation can reduce the impact and provide you with options to give you educated choices. Training enhances your capabilities and allows you to experience mistakes to improve your learning.
If you are focused and yet having fun at the same time you are likely to bring all the forces together to hit your target.
Perfect practice makes perfect. Practice allows you to experience ways of doing things. If you repeatedly do the same things without improving or getting success then your practice will not be considered perfect. If you find something works and incorporate that into your practice then you are likely to improve. Perfecting techniques that work for you or have worked for others is common sense and often leads to success.
Team, individual or group activities competing against others enables you to gauge your own capabilities. Being honest in your own assessment helps your subconscious work on techniques to help you improve.
Being open to different methods of training, accepting that everyone can offer advice and willingness to listen is key. You never know where the gem of an idea may come from. If you want to learn something, go teach it!
