Sportsman spirit gives you confidence

Post MBA exams you will be tested for WAT or Written Ability Test so it is advisable to read variety of topics. Today, you will read WAT topic:  “Sportsman spirit gives you confidence” 

Sports play an important role in our lives because they teach us essential life skills that no other activity can put forth. A true sportsman is someone who uses both heart and head to tackle a game.
 
Apart from physical strength, a sportsman uses his mind to think of strategies to excel in a sport. In addition, he uses his heart to play a game ethically, in a fair manner. A true sportsman possesses great morals, confidence and a competitive spirit. 
 
Studies have shown that people who play sports develop leadership qualities and team spirit. Especially in team-based sports, players are required to lead their teams to victory.
 
A leader can lead his team only when he is confident and when he spreads confidence to his team members. In addition, competitive spirit automatically develops in a sportsman because a sport teaches an individual to be participative, instead of worrying about winning or losing.
 
Since a sport involves interaction with a team or with an opponent, collective thinking and communication skills are honed as a result. When someone wins a game, his confidence level is automatically boosted.
 
Mohammed Ali once said, “To be a great champion, you must believe that you are the best. If you are not, pretend that you are”. This is what a sport is all about. You need to have confidence in yourself and your team mates.
 
You need to believe that you are capable of winning. It is only when your mind and heart are filled with confidence that you will reap the sweet fruits of success. 
 
According to Jack Nicklaus, an American golfer, “Confidence is the most important single factor in this game, and no matter how great your talent is, there is only one way to obtain it – work”. You will only work towards winning a game if you are confident of your abilities. So, confidence ranks higher than talent in sports.
 
It is true that sportsman spirit gives you confidence. The spirit of winning and working as a team builds leadership skills and develops the confidence level of an individual. Stan Smith, a famous tennis player, said it beautifully, “Experience tells you what to do, and confidence allows you to do it”.
