Playing football is the favorite pastime of a lot of Americans. A lot even dream of someday getting into the NFL and win consecutive Super Bowls. This is why even at the high school levels; the competition for football is quite fierce. So many athletes go on through life thinking what it would have been like if they had only been more talented, but guess what; it doesn’t matter if you are less talented than the other guy, it’s a matter of having the right winbir qualities in you.
Before throwing your dreams of playing with the Indianapolis Colts aside, there are a few things that you should consider first. There are a number of qualities that great athletes such and Muhammad Ali all have. Here are some of the traits that gave them the edge over other sportsmen.
In any part of life, there will always be obstacles that you will have to face. You must come out undeterred and go through these tough patches in your sporting career. It didn’t bother Bret Favre when he started out as a 7th string quarter back in college, being cut from his high school team didn’t stop Michael Jordan from being called the “Greatest”. There is a saying that goes “It doesn’t matter how many times you fall, it’s how many times you get back up”. OK so you’re not the best passing quarter back; then work on it.
This is very important especially in a world with endless temptations. Have a game the following day? Maybe you could skip that party and rest instead of waking up with a very bad hang over. You have training but at the same time you have your only chance to date the girl you’ve been crushing on for so long? Skip the date and train. Once you start improving your game and begin shining, so many potential partners are bound to show up (probably even a big upgrade from the one you cancelled on).
A lot of athletes are not able to shine because they become gripped with fear when they are given the chance to do so. So what if you dish out a bad pass? A lot of great quarter backs have had hundreds of mishaps. It’s a matter of just doing what you are supposed to when the right moment comes and not hesitate.
