As you can see, every tip in this blog is related to how you can improve your mental game, because if you want to be successful in this game, you are going to have to break out of your “mental prison”.
Today let’s get into the” mental prison” that many tennis players tend to get themselves into and stay there for their whole careers.
Understand that it is a mental prison and that you have created it, so that means that, you have to be the one to break your own self out!
Yesterday I gave you a tennis tip about what to bring to practice,today I will talk to you about “Desire”.
“Because until your desire to break out of your own self-imposed mental prison is stronger, then your desire is to stay there,you are going to stay mentally locked up.”
“I can only point this out to you, and then you have to do the work by yourself.”
Get on the “warrior meditation diet” we talk about for a few weeks, to try to get your mental game going in a new direction.
Your old self will resist this mental diet, so you have to persist with this diet, until your subconscious mind starts to respond to it.
“Let me stress that point to you again,your “old self”, will always try to keep you in your self-created mental prison, so be prepared for it and fight through it.”
Tennis is just like life, it’s about true self-expression and to be able to do that on court,you need mental freedom!
“The mental game in tennis is tough and only the players that get mentally tough win out.”
