Straightforward Success
Having your physical, mental, and emotional needs
in a particular situation satisfied,
setting you up to succeed through your own efforts

When parents, coaches, and teachers satisfy the needs of girls to play sports, they set girls up to be more likely to achieve the following successes through their own efforts. Even just swimming at community pools achieves many of these benefits:

Healthy hearts

Strong immune systems

Resilient bones

Healthy weight

Low risk for breast and other cancers

Low chance of becoming diabetic

Emotional health

Ability to leave an abusive man

Avoiding teen pregnancy

Nike created an ad about many of these successes:

A web host transfer made some posts disappear. Luckily, I copied each post and emailed it to myself. Since I alternated success and failure posts, I will have to remove posts and republish them in success and failure order. I will do this as I have time. Apologies.
