Marcela: All right, you’re ready for these tryouts. You’ve passed your physical. You’ve trained for months. You’re going to make that team.
Kenji: It’s okay. I don’t need a pep talk. I’m just going to do the best I can.
Marcela: Yes, but you want to have your head in the right place. You’re going to dominate the field. You’re going to intimidate the other players.
Kenji: No, I only want to impress the coach. I’m going to play hard and hold nothing back.
Marcela: Yes, that’s fine, but you want to send a message to the other players that you’re a force to be reckoned with.
Kenji: I’m going to have faith in my abilities, and hope for the best.
Marcela: At least try to look tough. Try scowling at the other players like you can’t wait to get them on the field so you can crush them.
Kenji: [sigh] I tell you what, why don’t you scowl for me? I think you’re much scarier than any player who’s ever played this game.
