Self-confidence is a crucial component of humility.
Strong leaders in the various teams I've been a part of have always seemed to me to avoid conflict through genuine humility. These guys were an inspiration to me because they taught me that true confidence comes from being humble.
Give generously, and you will be rewarded!
If you don't give, you have nothing to look forward to in life. But, on the other hand, you'll get some playing time on the team if you do well. If you're kind and generous, people will take notice of you. People will respect your drive if you are committed. All of that was made clear to me through my involvement in sports.
Find something you're passionate about and go after it.
I learned the value of pursuing a hobby or recreation you're genuinely interested in during my many years of participation in sports. It's the best way to be good at what you do because it gives you a daily dose of happiness to do something you enjoy.
Success is well worth the effort it takes to get there.
Sports introduced me to the concept of success and made me fall in love with it. It doesn't matter if you're looking for a team or individual recognition in sports; there's always something to strive for. My pride grew with every accomplishment, and I still believe that my drive to succeed directly results from the energising feelings I got after the big team wins, clutch goals, or late-game comebacks.
