While there are physical elements necessary to be considered a great athlete, the most important characteristics are all choices that athletes make and all within every athlete’s control. “Like what?” you might ask. Having a teachable spirit, integrity, discipline, mental toughness, accountability, and selflessness are critical to becoming a truly great athlete. The beauty of each of these is they require no special skill, talent, or physical qualities. You just have to choose to make these characteristics a part of who you are. Choose to become the best you are capable of becoming.
