Perspective is having the ability to take a step back and put into context something that just happened and relate it to the bigger picture of what is going on.

As much as I hate losing, perspective, has helped me get over tough losses and to improve and learn from those losses.

We’ve all been involved in those games where you feel like you outplay the other team and do enough things right that you should win, but for whatever reason you don’t. These are often times some of the most gut wrenching losses we have to handle.

For players, perspective becomes increasingly important when dealing with situations like getting cut from a team, lack of ice time, being benched, or even playing on a losing team.

If there is anything that I have learned over the years being involved in the game is that adversity builds character and not everything is going to go the way you want it to. How you respond to that adversity is what will not only grow your character but ultimately define you.

When times get tough and frustration starts to set it, take a step back. Remember why you you play the game. Think of all the good things the game brings into your life and how much passion you have for the sport.

A simple two minutes of taking a deep breath and putting things in perspective can change your attitude and put you mentally back in a better place.

Remember that while it’s important to never settle, things could always be worse. The quicker that you can stop dwelling on the negative and find some positive, the quicker you will achieve success and become a stronger player and person.

Obstacles make life interesting. Overcoming them makes it all meaningful.
