We have provided you with tons of resources to tackle all types of basketball training, but when it comes to becoming a better athlete another key factor is MOTIVATION.
Motivation is the ability to initiate and persist at a task. To perform your best, you must want to begin the process of developing and you must be willing to keep working on your progress until you have achieved your goals. Motivation is vital to athletes because you have to be ready to work hard even when you're busy, tired, and everything else that can pop up throughout a day to deter you from getting better.
Motivation is the foundation of all athletic effort and accomplishment. If you don't have the desire and determination to improve your athletic skills and performance then all of the information we have given you will do no good.
