Keeping Injuries in Perspective
In this video clip Leslie Osborne, former U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team player, shares how she kept her injuries as an athlete in perspective. The injuries Osborne sustained were devastating to her goals of playing in the Olympics, but she didn’t let that affect her positivity and support of the team. As she says here, there are worse things happening to other people, and it’s important for athletes dealing with injuries to remember that and to keep it in perspective. Injuries might be setbacks, but they can be seen as challenges that teach you how to excel in life.
