    The three H’s for athletes

    -

    There are lots of qualities and characteristics that are important elements of athletic performance and achievement. Ability, skill, and talent are, obviously, what every athlete aspires to develop.

    But there are also intangible — effort-related — attributes that can improve any athlete’s performance. Every team needs these athletes. Persistent kids who work hard to get the most out of their talents and abilities.

    Here are three of those attributes that will make any athlete hard to beat.

    The 3 H’s for Athletes:

    1. Hard Work. Get in the weight room. Improve your strength, speed, agility, and athleticism. Practice your sport-specific skills. Improve your ball-handling, hitting, skating, foot skills, or whatever your sport requires. Have a plan and work smart.
    2. Heart. Believe in yourself. Play with aggressiveness, confidence, and energy. Hard work begets confidence. Be confident, but not cocky. Be positive, and have a “can-do” attitude. Expect to succeed every time you’re on the field or court.
    3. Hustle. It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re the most talented player on the field or court. Never allow yourself to be out-worked. Whatever your 100% looks like, give it.

    Get STRONGER, Get FASTER!
