“Love the Suck”

This is a saying that I heard Sargeant Mike Malloy say again and again at the Sharks Prospect Camp. It’s as comical as it is powerful.

“Love the Suck”

As a team, regardless of the sport or industry, you’re going to face adversity. It’s inevitable. Contrary to common practice, what you do with that adversity is a CHOICE. As a team, you can choose to crumble. As a team, you can choose to unite and rise against.

As an individual, you can choose to be sucked in to the negativity of a few players or you can choose to lead your team away from it.

Some seasons are going to have more suck than others. If you choose to revel in it, the rougher it gets, the tougher you get.

Love the suck is about bathing in adversity, soaking it up, and becoming stronger willed because of it.

To your success,
