Everyone loves football. Fall can never get here fast enough, friends and families gather around to watch their favorite team play. It’s become a great pass-time and fun entertainment, but there are also some great life lessons to be learned from watching the game.
1. Talent is not enough, you need to work hard.
Talent will only get you so far, you need to practice and condition your body so that you can let your talent shine. At each level, the level of talent becomes more uniform, what separates those who excel is the work and effort that players put in to showcase their talent. The lesson we need to teach our kids as they discover their talents is the value of hard work and practice. Talent may get their feet in the door, but their work ethic is what gets them a seat at the table.
