If you ever watch or are involved in sport, the word class keeps resurfacing from time to time.
Most people can identify a team or person with class, but when it comes to describing it or what’s behind the development of it, most people would struggle.

The basis of this is the ability to be able to execute the basics and key skills of the sport to a high degree so the mistake rate drops and behind the ability to do this is the discipline and mental fortitude to want to practice the basics and keys so you become masterful at them.
And that is at the heart of the problem, for not many people have the self-discipline to do it and most require enforced discipline to get near it.

Self-discipline is the gateway to class
