You may have to compromise for teammates, coaches, parents, etc., so that you can succeed in your passion. In the book Boy21 Matthew Quick expresses a way Finley (a character in the book) compromises for not only his friend but his teammate, “I think I know what’s best for Russell. I think about what good friends do. I take off number 21 practice jersey and toss it to Boy 21” (115). Your passion can be anything sports, music, or art. whatever it is, there will always be a bump in the road. If I were you I would step up and be the bigger person, do the right thing. A coach or the people around you will notice your actions and it will help you. Continuing on, compromising is not always for the worse, it can make everyone happy at the end. Psychologist David Bedrick confirms in Psychology Today, “They view compromise as a ‘win-win’ solution where both people get some of what they want”. When it comes to your passion you should want everyone that is involved in your passion to feel happy and secure. Be the one that will compromise you never know, you can end up “winning” for doing what is best. This method was extremely effective for me. I gave up my position in volleyball for someone that wanted to try my position out. I ended up really liking my new position. It made me a better and more useful player.

If you have a passion of some sort, I highly recommend these methods. Right now in my life because of these methods I am extremely successful
