Hard work is defined as a great deal of effort or endurance. It takes hard work to be successful in sport and in life. Working hard is an essential component in becoming a top athlete, and working hard has lots of advantages in the short-term (value, self-confidence, motivation amongst others). However working hard is sometimes not that fun to do on a daily basis. How can you make sure you do work hard in your PE lessons? Or how can you make sure your team does to? Making small amounts of progress in each PE lessons is vital in ensuring hard work is given and success is seen. Hard work means managing distractions, knowing what you want to achieve in the long run and giving nothing but your best (determination).
In your lessons, you will have countless opportunities to work hard and to be at the top of your game. This means giving 100% to each lesson and not looking to cut corners or to take the ‘easy’ option out. This also means not only mentally training hard, but also physically too. Set yourself a realistic goal to achieve by the end of each lesson and watch your hard work pay off. Who knows- you could be the next Mo Farrah. This is what we refer to as hard work.
