“He who has a firm will, creates his world,”Goethe.
“People don’t lack strength, they lack will”, Victor Hugo.
We always quit, when we are about 3 feet from our goals.
You know there is one thing to want something, but it takes a strong will to hang in there, until you get it.
I’m not telling you something here, that you don’t already know, just trying to get you to stop playing games with yourself.
To all of you, who have reached your tennis goals for this year, congrats.
And to the rest of you guys, don’t stop 3 feet from your goal.
I’ll share with you a quote that I have posted up on my wall in my bedroom, I read it every time I walk pass it too.
“There is no such thing as failure to the man that does his best.”
As a tennis player what does that tell you?
“That if you gave 100% mental effort in a match and lost it, that you can still walk off the court feeling like a winner.”
That’s your playing theme for your career, note it down.
I just wish more parents and coaches would get their kids and players to buy into this powerful mindset for playing matches and stop letting them cheat to try to make it.
No more excuses okay, and don’t stop on the 3 yard line from your goal, cross the goal for christ sakes!
It’s about time to get pumped up for 2015!
