Serena Williams recently gave birth to her beautiful daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian. In Serena’s recent Gatorade commercial, she gave a heartfelt message to her daughter. This message can apply to all girls, especially those who will be or who are athletes. The main points of her message are as follows:
1. You’ll learn to move and how to move others
When playing sports, we learn how to move a certain way. We become physically fit and agile while also finding a passion. With this passion, we can influence others to do what they love as well and show them that they can be one of the best.
You can move others in anything you may decide to do. When we become great at what we do, whether it is in sports, academics, music, etc., we can show others that they can be just as successful.
2. You’ll make sisters through sweat
When we meet people who have the same goals and aspirations as us, they become an important part of our lives. This especially goes for girls who are apart of team sports/organizations. You will not only have the same goals that you will connect through, but you have to learn how to trust one another to achieve that goal.
You will learn how to work as a team, which can carry you a long way in life, and you will make life-long friendships that you will always value.
3. You’ll find courage in whatever playing field you choose
Most athletes or former athletes will tell you that sports not only gives you a particular strength, but they give you overall confidence in general. Sports can show you how to be a leader and how not to be a pushover. They will teach you that you can’t be scared or intimidated if you want to be successful. You have to learn how to work hard and get things done without a doubt. This mindset can be implemented into your everyday life, giving you the courage to conquer whatever challenges may come your way.
