A ball is designed to bounce whenever an appropriate amount of force is applied to it. It is interesting to note that basketball is a sport in which the ball must always be bouncing in order for a player to move forward. A downward force is applied to the ball for most of the game. The expectation is that the ball always bounces back. The players know instinctively exactly how much force to apply to the ball in order for it to bounce back to their hand. If a player were to attempt to dribble a basketball and the ball didn’t bounce back to their hand, then the player would have a question about the basketball. Basketballs that don’t bounce back are no good to the players on the court. Basketballs that don’t bounce back have lost their purpose because they can’t be used as they were originally intended.
Definition of bounce back: to return quickly to a normal condition after a difficult situation or event
Basketballs aren’t the only things that need to bounce back. You must be able to bounce back as well. The definition of bounce back is: “to return quickly to a normal condition after a difficult situation or event.” Inevitably there are going to be times in which you struggle or fail to meet a goal you set. That’s not the end of the world. You have to make up in your mind that you are going to seek and use feedback in order to make it right the next time. Advice and feedback from adults is like air to a flat ball. Remember, you only really fail when you stop trying.
