Ken Reed, sports policy director for the league of fans - I believe that the fundamental allure of sports is that everything happens much more quickly and intensely than in our daily lives.

Sports is becoming so valuable as it connects people with the same field of interest, passionating minds with high mental strength. 

There are many things that value sports to a level up:

1. Be passionate:

It is very well said that if you are not passionate enough, you are never going to achieve anything. Today everyone has passion and purpose in their lives. The athletes with passion and purpose literally love being engaged in all aspects of their training.

2. Focused:

One must have the target in their sights. The sports guides to be attentive about the goal setting. You need to know what you want in life and work systematically to achieve your goals.

3. Perseverance:

Life has never been fair and hopefully, it will never be but overcoming all the challenges is the best thing to make it through. One must try and try again until success is in hand. If the work hasn't been done yet then believe in you that it will be done for the first time only by you.

4. Practice makes perfect:

The only way to be the best is to practice. One must feel free to make mistakes in order to get the motivation. Making mistakes is not wrong but not making out of it is wrong. Life hits with a failure to learn something positive. Sports is the best thing that teaches us to keep learning.

5. Respect:

Sport teaches us something good towards others, may it be the teammates, the decision-makers, the opponents or someone else. Giving respect to each and everyone is the most important thing for a graceful competition. Along with giving respect, fair play and winning or losing with dignity plays a major role in learning from sports. there is no glory in winning dirty, simultaneously if you tried hard but you lost, accept it with dignity.

Don't give up! You are not going to win always but you are not always going to lose, either! One must keep patience and stay calm even in worse conditions.

7. Mental strength:

If you believe that you can do it, you will definitely do it. It all lies in the mental toughness one shows towards the situation.

It is very rightly said that "Your strongest muscle and worst enemy is your mind. Train it well."

8. Trust:

Sports play a major role in building the trust to believe in yourself and even in others. According to the famous basketball player, Michael Jordan's saying "Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen" he explains it very well to have faith within you. Even having faith in teammates is important to win every game of life.

9. Team spirit:

Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships. Sports make us grow more and more when it's with the team as team spirit is the feeling of pride and loyalty that exist in teammates.

10. Kill out the demons:

Living with a fear of something is not a healthy attitude. Sport helps to kill out the demons in oneself. Similarly knowing your limits is not just enough but after knowing the limits pushing it for much more is the best thing one can learn from sports.

Sports is not just about fun and fitness but it is something that values life towards the right attitude.
