How does being an athlete make you a better person?
Apart from its obvious physical benefits, being an athlete forces you to take total responsibility for your preparation, focus, and performance. It's a method of collective expression that teaches you how to traverse life's greatest obstacles. And in team sports, it shows the power of unity and cohesion. When people bond together for a collective goal, anything can be achieved. Lastly, it pushes you beyond the limits you thought were possible inside of yourself. Also, it's fun!
