Ten of the Top Lessons We Can Learn from Sports 


From the fanatical to the flippant, all of us are engaged, influenced, or even obsessed with sports in our lives. It’s because there are so many valuable life lessons that can be learned in an enjoyable active way that can help add wisdom to your life.

Here are the top ten takeaways from watching, playing (or even hating) the good game(s): 
  1. Win or lose, there will always be another game to play.  
  2. One team’s loss is another team’s win: everything is perspective depending on how you look at it.  
  3. Sometimes you won’t know the outcome until the very end, so you might as well enjoy the game itself.  
  4. Sports can make strangers into family and best friends into enemies, learn how to coexist wherever you can. 
  5. Even when there are rules, sometimes they are unfairly applied, and you still must continue to play. 
  6. Mistakes will be made by the individual, but we still need to work as a team. 
  7. Disagreements are bound to happen, especially in the heat of the moment, it is how you handle them afterward that makes the difference 
  8. Perseverance and persistence despite obstacles or challenges are key to achieving your goals.  
  9. You miss all the goals you never tried for! 
  10. Loyalty can take you to extremes; the soaring highs and the deep lows of your relationship, like life, but it strengthens the bond between you (as every Toronto Maple Leafs fan will agree!)
