What’s awesome about thoughts is - that if they aren’t serving you - you have the power to change them!
In tennis - if you are thinking that your partner is playing poorly - or you mind is on aches and pains - or you’re telling yourself the the opponents are better than you - it will be damaging to your game!
Having mental confidence (even unfounded) is very valuable to achieve positive outcomes!
It has taken me time to build my mental strength - to not allow my partners negative words affect my courage - and to try my best no matter how I feel.
It’s part of the game to strengthen your brain! It will be good for your tennis and for your life too!!! (Stay tuned for mind taming tricks)!!
