A cheerleader is an important part of any sports team. Spectators may see a vibrant, enthusiastic young person, who seems naturally cheerful and agile. However, it also takes hard work and physical endurance to put on a group show.
Staying physically fit and long hours of practice are just some of the demands placed on a cheerleader. Maintaining an upbeat spirit throughout the game can be a morale booster, even with a gloomy score. But when the lights go out and the season ends, is a cheerleader able to keep this motivation?
The art of cheerleading can lead to a future of spirited achievements, but only when the will to succeed is kept in the forefront of life’s journey. It is not easy to stay focused and upbeat when the excitement and camaraderie finally come to an end. Staying in shape, eating well and keeping active in community affairs can keep a spirit alive in any interest.
Cheerleading should not be looked upon as a past part of life, but a training session for the future. The power of motivation, fueled by the right sleep, a good diet, and continuing an exercise routine, will always have a positive presence for the future. The next time you attend a game, think of cheerleading in this light, instead of seeing a young person that wants to flaunt their good looks. Ask yourself if you could follow their path into the future once the mojo has been removed.
