Motivation is Emotional
I remember one of my football coaches getting emotional in every pre-game pep talk. The first time was moving. The next ten times he cried before a game made me kind of chuckle. I didn’t need him to cry to get me to care enough to play hard but it was nice to know that he cared so much. His emotion did not always transfer to me but it did seem to affect some of my teammates. It’s important to be emotionally measured so that we allow our emotions to be a benefit and not a liability.
