A DOSE OF POWER LIVING®: Score for the Team – As acclaimed Brazilian footballer Pelé said, “A great player is a player who can do everything on the field. He can do assists, encourage his colleagues, give them confidence to go forward. It is someone who, when a team does not do well, becomes one of the leaders.”

Except for in a relay race, I wasn’t really dependent on the other members like with sports such as football or basketball.
