SEVEN DEINITIONS OF A POSITIVE ATHLETE:
1.Optimistic Attitude – Most coaches will tell you that an athlete who believes positive things will happen has a greater chance for success.
2.Encouraging Teammate – In every sport, teammates are going to experience some kind of failure. Positive Athletes are the first ones to encourage them.
3.Servant Leader – Positive Athletes do not think about being the “stars of the team.” They lead through serving others first and by setting an example.
4.Heart for Others – Many athletes are blessed with gifts that many others are not. The Positive Athlete seeks to help the less gifted or fortunate.
5.Admits Imperfections – This is Positive Athlete…not Perfect Athlete. Athletes willing to admit they make mistakes gain the respect of teammates and fans.
6.Always Gives 100% – Not every athletic competition goes as planned, but a Positive Athlete always gives 100% no matter what the scoreboard says.
7.Puts Team First – There are times when personal achievement may hurt the team’s goal. Positive Athletes choose their team.
