The Power of Forgiveness

The best teammates understand that tension will rise in the heat of the battle. Emotions are a part of every team and conflict is inevitable. The ability to forgive and repair quickly is what defines a great teammate. Great teammates don’t allow those tense moments to linger in their mind. Resentment isn’t allowed to build because they choose to live by what they know and not how they feel. Forgiveness frees the mind from the cloud of resentment. Resentment hinders our creativity because it focuses it on thoughts of entitlement and revenge rather than the next obstacle to the team goal. Forgiveness is a powerful aspect of a great team.
