Does attitude have anything to do with the way a team performs? Having a positive attitude is bound to make a team come together. When team members come together, they learn to play or perform as one. They start to believe in one another and are able to achieve their goals.

All it takes is one teammate to have doubt on the team to make it all fall apart. The team will start to doubt its ability as a team and will not win. Not only does it affect the outcome of the game, but the athletes become less engaged. They will not want to attend practice if the atmosphere around them is negative. It’s easier to let negative thoughts tear you down a lot faster than positive ones can build you up. A lot of the sports played are all a mental game. Obviously, skill and technique are needed, but the willingness to work is what sets a team apart.

A player who knows how to stay focused and motivated will also keep their team motivated. With players like that, you’re not only likely to perform at your best, but you’ll gain a whole new appreciation for your sport and what it really means to be a part of something bigger than yourself.

Having positive players on a team also forms friendships. When these friendships are made it brings a team closer together. This enables the team to support one another and play as one. This makes practice better for the athletes because they want to be with one another. Then they want to start winning together as a team. This makes them unstoppable.

When a team is positive and supportive then they are determined to win. The team becomes unbreakable and unstoppable. It is important to have positive attitudes to keep the team winning.
