I am in a slump right now, but I am hoping to snap out of it soon
I have always been a true competitor at heart and do not back down from challenges. However, I have come to the realization that I need to get back in the mentality that I once had. Soccer is a sport that should be enjoyed for the freedom that it offers. At this moment I am in a 4 game slump. What I mean by that, is that I'm not playing to my fullest potential. I have been part of many great teams, and we have won many championships for various leagues in the DFW area. However, I feel like I need a tune up. I have been in slumps before and it happens to everybody who plays the sport. Some days you are just not yourself. In my opinion, the best way to break a slump is to go back to the fundamentals. I'm not talking about the physical fundamentals, but rather the mental fundamentals. I need to play with a carefree attitude and just enjoy the sport for what it is. Soccer is a sport where you can run loose and just enjoy the outdoors for 90 minutes. In today's game against the Tornadoes I will once again put the fundamentals to the test and just enjoy the freedom of the game. I hope this works. In case this does not work, please let me know what you do to get out of a slump.
