Athletes are those individuals who give everything in order to succeed, and who are blessed with good genetics in many cases as well. These individuals work hard and spend considerable amounts of time putting in tremendous effort in order to enhance and improve their physical abilities, performance, and stamina. Anything less than success is unacceptable and the motivation to win comes from inside, not from a desire for attention or wanting to win a trophy. A true athlete shows dignity both on and off the field or court and they set a good example for younger fans. Athletes are driven by hope and highly motivated to succeed beyond their limits. They push themselves beyond what is reasonable in order to reach the pinnacle of their sport. Athletes must face many failures before they final reach the end goal and win the top spot, and this process is one of the forces behind their incredible success when they do finally break through.
