Build Self Esteem

- Activities involving adventure sports are often very challenging and have a different goal from other types of sports. That goal is to overcome the challenge by completing it as opposed to beating another person at a game. People engaging in adventure sports activities compete with themselves and therefore have a great sense of accomplishment when they teach their goal. It is all about overcoming fear and experiencing something thrilling. For instance a rock climber and a mountaineer have a goal to reach the top of that mountain for the scuba diver it is just getting in the water and discovering the sea world, for the kayaker it is all about maneuvering the kayak through the water. All of these adventure activities help to increase the self confidence and this helps to build self esteem through the sense of achievement gained by participating in these types of sporting activities.
