In my several years of playing volleyball, I have found that those who succeed are not those who are able to have the highest "peaks" in their talent and physical ability during a game. Rather those who succeed are the individuals that value consistent peaks to accomplish their goal in every situation of the game. These individuals are typically those who do not let the score of the game, or the crowd affect their play, as they are reminding themselves of the job that they have to do, rather than resorting to panicking which would diminish their game and cause it to hit high crests and very low troughs. I believe that I am that individual. Over the years, I have developed a mindset that does not discriminate based on the score of the game. I treat every point equally and focus on the task at hand, allowing me to offer consistent performance wherever and whenever I play. Regardless of the talent and physical characteristics that an athlete possesses, they are rendered ineffective without this mindset which yields consistency. This is why I believe I am a strong candidate for any team that I play on, and it separates me from other recruits. I am constantly striving to play to the best of my ability by focusing on every aspect of the game and my mindset. This allows me to be the player that teammates look to during close games when certain players begin to panic. I know how to conduct myself and bring my team with me so that if we lose the game, it is because we did not possess the skills, but never due to our own defeat.
