Webster defined character as the combination of qualities that distinguishes an individual, person, group, or thing; moral strength; reputation; disposition; a person of marked individuality; an eccentric; and a person. In other words, your character distinguishes who you are as a person. It mainly reflects your personality.
In the sport of basketball, you can hear coaches would say that it is important to build a character in players. In line to the actual definition above, how would you relate building a character in your players? People can have diverse analysis on this one. But the way I look at it, it does not stand with character alone.
There is a positive character, and there is also a negative character. What is being implied is developing a positive character within the players. I used the term within because I want to stress out that character is deep inside the person. It should not sound, or appear, superficial. It is deeply analyzed within the individual. Now, going back to the concept of building a positive character, I believe that it is the positive quality of character that coaches would want his players to develop. And so, after knowing what this character is all about, how should you develop the character within your players?
