Responsibility 3

If you want to teach athletes habits to take responsibility for their own lives…

Or if you want practical steps to turn excuses into solutions…

Then you should watch this video from our FightinStrong resource library. In this clip, we continue on the theme of responsibility, specifically the topic of excuses. Excellence in anything requires that you own up. By the end of this video, you’ll understand how to help young people develop that aspect of their character before making excuses becomes habitual. 

Here’s what else you’ll find within this video:

  • How making excuses is like tapping out (0:36)
  • The more excuses you make, the more you’re going to lose (1:53)
  • What if excuses happen to be valid? Where to spend your energy instead (2:13)
  • Why it’s important to instill these habits early on (rather than try to change your habits later) (3:17)
  • Enacting responsibility through practice and character development (5:02)

Stay strong,
