Life lessons are all embedded in the game of tennis.
Patience, practice, consistency, mental toughness, strategy and more are all apparent at any level of play.
The first rule is to make sure you don’t beat yourself. Which means, stay composed and don’t make unforced errors.
You may lose some points, games or even a whole set, but you can still win the match. Always stay in it and give it your best.
In life as in tennis, beating yourself is the easiest way to lose. If you don’t believe you can improve your life, why would you read a book, listen to a podcast or go to a cool event?
If you do believe in yourself, you will still have errors. The path won’t be straight. But you will stay consistent and play your best game.
