Outline of the speech
The template of the outline l have already attached. The article is: Get out of your room Make some friends! I usually heard these shouted at me through my closed door because my parents were worried I was too antisocial. And yeah I guess I didnt have many friends and I believed that if you wanted something done right, you had to do it yourself so I refused to work with people on group projects but thats not a problem right? Eventually, I admitted to myself that maybe it was a problem so I looked around for the fastest and easiest way to fix it. I decided to pick up a basketball because only social people play basketball right? I like watching basketball, how much harder can playing be? Yeah, that was a rude awakening. I joined my class team for our intramural sports competition and promptly got whupped at practice because I had zero teamwork skills. Pass the ball, pass the ball! On your left, are you blind? My teammates afterward told me Youre pretty good technically but you just wont pass the ball! Even if youre Kobe you cant win playing by yourself! It was rough at first because I hated trusting other people to take a shot, but I also couldnt shoot the ball halfway across the court. So eventually I gritted my teeth and passed to whoever was shouting loudest so that I wasnt permanently benched. To my immense shock, it actually worked, and we won. Thats when I realized, playing a team sport means you have to be a team player. Even if youre a superstar on your own, you can only go to the next level by trusting your team and working with them. That realization changed everything, the idea that I could be better when I worked with other people. I still have to fight my instinct to go it alone every day but now that I have reached enlightenment its much less of a fight than it used to be. I also dont avoid group work anymore and even enjoy it sometimes. Who would have thought?
