Football and its impact on personality (My Blog) – By Shekar Rajan 27th july 2016
Having spent 18 years in training managements and managers, and teams across various organizations and verticals like sales, service, IT, healthcare, education and manufacturing keeping physically fit has been a challenge because of my travel and training schedules.
Sports and gym have been close to my heart, I still spend some of my precious time playing and watching football and other sports.
My father was a national level footballer, played for state and HAL has a great influence in seeing my dad play when I was little boy. My younger brother followed my dad’s footsteps and played for the state and HAL football at a national level.
Over the years from childhood playing various sports mostly individual sports and then having zeroed on football, I have realized that there has be a moderation in passion, aggression and urge to win. In the beginning when I wanted to win every game my aggression was killing the team and the spirit of the game.
My desire to win was so high that, the only thing mattered was winning. Every game is played to win, but that’s not the only thing, this pushed me many times to lose my cool and get very aggressive, I used to indulge in harsh physical tackles on opponents. I would be rebuked by my own team and my younger brother even if he was part of my team.
Over the years as they say ‘wisdom dawns’ and realization hit me in the face and told me that “I’m playing to enjoy the game of football, not to get rebuked and harm others in the game.” I have changed because of the love for the beautiful game of football.
But football is a divine dance of the body mind and spirit. The more I focused on enjoying the game, my game became better and I also started winning. Football is a great teacher there is no parallel, some of the great qualities I experienced are -
- Acceptance of team members and their competency levels
- Backing the team 100%
- Sharing responsibility for loss of games
- Supportive behavior towards team members who may be having a bad day in terms of performance on the field.
- Controlled aggression
- Never give up spirit
- Ecstatic combination of the body mind and spirit to enjoy the game of football.
These may be common to most team, but personally I immerse myself into the behavioral topics day in day out, in my management trainings for managers and executives. Now let’s kickstart a change!
