What are important values in succeeding in sports and life?
What are some important values in succeeding in sports that you have also found useful in daily living? In what particular sport activities did you see them proven and tested?
Resilience- not giving up when meeting hardship, barriers and trials. If it was easy, noone would make it.
Win kindly, lose graciously, keep your fitness and physical level at a peak and enjoy it! I've found these apply to anything; I've played tennis and netball competitively, as well as enjoying other sports such as cycling. Winning and losing is part of life and we have to learn to cope with them both reasonably; sometimes the lessons are in the losing even more than the winning. Good question!
Honesty. It is always the best policy. That is what my mom always said.
stay true to yourself blaze your own path do not let people tell you want to do. As for sprts play hard and have fun!
In my time in the US Air Force, I attended Squadron Officer School, which is basically a leadership course for mid-level managers used to hone the skills of young officers. There, we played sports which had similarities to basketball, soccer, football, etc. Some had been mixed with the other....for example moving a football up and down a field by passing it...like basketball the scoring by throwing the football through the backboard of a basketball goal...called "Flickerball". By designing such sports, no individual was experience in the game. Their only edge was mentality and athletic prowness...still individuals excelled quickly because they applied themselves and focused on the goal. They learned the rules and used the rules to their advantage at every opportunity. They used their teammates as much as possible and understood how their assigned role fit with the efforts of the other roles on the field. Those who did not excel mainly did not put out the effort and/or pay attention. They soon became non-productive and a drag on the success of the team. They basically felt forced to "play the game" as opposed to engaging the challenge of it and achieving success with it. I saw many comparisions with life in that experience. ~WB
Sit back, relax and enjoy. You win some, you lose some, keep on trying. And when you win remember what you did. Be fair and always do your best!
I think self discipline helps you succeed in sports and in life. You have to be disciplined to succeed in a job, with relationships and in your own health and well being and to keep in shape and at the top of your game.
In sports, play hard, give it your best, don't let failure get you down. I think that's true of life too. It seems to me like people who are eventually successful have failed more than once and handled it gracefully, not become bitter.
I think self discipline is very important to succeed in sports and in life. Make a time table/ schedule and follow it to perfection. Giving your 100% in whatever is your goal will lead you to success.
Sports and life are not won by an individual. The value of teamwork is most evident in a lot of sports and this is true in life. A team with one spectacular player and a bunch of other members that don't play well together will lose to a team made up of average players that play well together. This is true in life. Just look at a strong family in action. In today's world many people would gain something valuable if they learned how to play well as a team instead of seeking just individual rewards.
So look at soccer, football, ice hockey, even car racing to see this in action.

There are a lot of sports now but not all of them have time slots in ESPN. Of course Basketball and Football need their airtime, but I think some sports should have less airtime (like baseball and soccer) and some should have more airtime (like beach volleyball). What do you all...

Why do people enjoy watching sports so much?I know the same question could be asked of those who enjoy writing or reading, but still, why? I like playing sports, but I just don't understand how you could just watch. Wouldn't you rather be doing it?
