LEADER'S GUIDE

This section of the study contains the answers to the objective questions and additional background information to supplement the study.

CHAPTER 1 - THE CALL TO GREATNESS

In a world saturated in mediocrity, our culture is in a crisis that devalues and depreciates man’s universal call to holiness and greatness.

CHAPTER 2 - MADE FOR MORE

More than ever, we need to understand how our true value is found in being children of God. How can athletes, in a culture of wins and losses, develop this proper understanding of reality?

CHAPTER 3 - THE MEASURE OF GREATNESS

Athletes strive for perfection and try hard to minimize mistakes. Knowing that, we must not confuse the call to greatness as a call to perfection.

CHAPTER 4 - MOTIVATED BY LOVE

As our love grows, it becomes the motivation for everything we do. When it becomes our motivation in competition, it focuses our minds and gives us a greater mental advantage.

CHAPTER 5 - THE CALL TO GREATNESS - MARTYRS/WITNESSES

You have a tremendous opportunity to be a witness of God’s love for you and for others. Being a witness can mean doing very simple things, but doing them with great love.
