This stuff works
At the beginning of this year I attended the rep hockey try-out for my town. I did make the team, but things weren’t going well. My team disrespected me constantly, doing gross things like peeing on me in the shower, and my ice-time was not doing well for the first two thirds of the season.
Then one day my mom told me to read The Secret, and using this information to my advantage, things suddenly turned around. I told myself I had to make the most of every opportunity given to me, and that I had to respect myself in order to get respect.
Well, that week a bunch of people on my team got injured/suspended, which left an opportunity to prove myself to the coaches that I deserved more ice-time. I went out every shift doing the smartest plays I could, and my ice-time increased. Even after the other players returned, my ice-time still stayed at this higher level, and it only kept getting better. People now saw my value to the team, and started to respect me more. By the end of the season everyone respected me, and I was getting a lot of ice-time, and I even started to get used in key situations of games. I even received a letter to go to our towns Jr A team tryout, and hopefully The Secret can serve me well there as well.
