What tennis means according to Forbes (2017): “Unlike many other largely individual sports such as running, swimming, cycling, diving, etc., it's not about trying to reach a finish line the fastest, or performing a certain routine to perfection; it's about constantly critiquing your own game while simultaneously responding to your opponent's. The raw grit necessary to have a successful tennis career is the same as earning success in any other field- ultimately it's not completely about luck or genius, it's about not giving up when you fall behind and things get really, really hard, and to unrelentingly strengthen your weaknesses.”
Tennis as a stepping stone
Like stated above, grit requires persevere when you face obstacles. There are days where you don't perform as well as you want. Can you still make the best out of your practice? How to stay positive?
Tennis taught me so many things and I grew as a person over the years. In the next couple blogs, I am going to expand on some skills. One of my slogans is: a lesson learned, should be a lesson shared. That's the reason why I will write about it.
A Lesson Learned Should Be A Lesson Shared
The upcoming blogs will be about:
- Expectation and motivation
- Handling stress
- Handling emotions
- Being responsible
- Going through adversity
