She also talks about how to stay engaged and avoid burnout in an individual sport like beach volleyball. Finally, Melissa reminds us that how we respond to failure is the most important determinant of our careers, on and off the court, and that when failure does happen, we need to give ourselves grace. “ I think it's how you respond to the failures that's going to be able to guide the rest of your career.” - Melissa Humana Paredes
