Courage– Having courage helps you feel comfortable taking risks, which is not always the easiest thing to do because sometimes taking risks leads to failures which can cause criticism and self-doubt. But courageous athletes don’t mind the risk of failure, instead, they take risks anyway and try everything they can to make sure that risk is going to lead to success. Bethany Hamilton, a professional surfer, says, “Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid. Courage means you don’t let fear stop you.” This quote is important because taking risks can be scary or playing in a championship game can be scary, and that’s ok. Just remember to have courage to take those risks or play as hard as you can in that championship game and it’ll work out okay.
