What defines a champion? Is it determined purely by athleticism and achievements or does character come into play? Does he have to be a role model or can he behave as he pleases? Most people will differ in their opinion on this matter.
When I think of a champion, I imagine someone who performs (or had performed) at the pinnacle of his sport. The adjectives talented, disciplined, passionate, compassionate, confidant, humble, and determined come to mind. He is a good sportsman, leads by example, and leaves an indelible mark on those he meets. His contributions make the sport better than when he entered the arena.
Coach John Wooden’s pyramid of success is a roadmap to achieving your goals through the building of great character. I encourage you all to become champions in your pursuit of health and wellness. Whether you are in the arena competing in a sport, or setting an excellent example of fitness for your grandkids, make your indelible marks and leave the world a better place.
