'Take a step back' and ask God

Soccer is a big sport at my school. Every year we have enough interest to form three full teams and players still have to be cut. 

As a junior this year, I made Varsity squad. Before our season began and during the second week of practice, whenever I ran, my ankles felt weak and useless. With most things I do, I am generally happy if know I did well. For me, it’s not whether I tried my hardest, but whether I could have possibly done better. In thinking about things this way, I put a lot of pressure on myself. So when my ankles started giving me trouble, I was frustrated, knowing that I could be playing better if I wasn’t hindered.
