Message # 94 Positive Sports Psychology Virtue # 4

This message is especially dedicated to the great Jake Myers in Brussels.

Virtue # 4:

Justice; definition: Civic strengths that underlie healthy community life

Character Strengths:

Fairness; def: Treating all people the same according to notions of fairness and justice

When practicing and competing, you should be respectful and make good line calls. Everyone you come in contact with should be treated the same, ie tournament directors, and other players. If you are a manager, you should treat all of your employees the same.

Leadership; def: Organizing group activities and seeing that they happen

If you are a tennis pro, organize activities for not only your students, but fellow pros, as well. Other ideas are organizing a mixer or fundraiser. Most tennis pros wait until they become a leader to act like one; if you want to get to the next level, you need to take action.

Teamwork; def: Working well as member of a group or team

We are all part of a team, possibly many teams; we are family members, teammates, friends, co-workers, etc. Success in each of these categories are attained in the same way. Remember what TEAM stands for: Together Everyone Achieves More…as long as there’s a Total Effort from All Members.
