First Complaint…

I received my first complaint today regarding my blog…Michelle from Los Angeles was upset that I did not write an entry because it was Saturday! So Michelle in LA, this one’s for you…

I was teaching a boy, I’ll call Mikey. Mikey was less than enthusiastic about taking tennis lessons and he was also uncoordinated…not a good combination for a tennis pro. So weeks went by and Mikey improved, but very slowly. One day I sat Mikey down and told him about The Law of Attraction and how negative thoughts equal negative results. I told him that he could only become as good as his self-image. After about 5 minutes or so of telling him about the power of positive thinking, a light went on in Mikey head. He began moving his feet, hitting the ball twice as hard, and even SMILING!!! From that day on, Mikey has played like a champion in EVERY lesson, and guess what? He even walks around more confidently and his grades improved. Did I change anything in Mikey’s technique? No, just his mindset. It’s all about the desire and passion.

The successful people in the world are not passionate because they are great; they are great because they are passionate! If you put passion and love into ALL that you do, from taking out the garbage, to how you perform at work/school, you will achieve greatness. “People won’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” All will take notice, like friends/family, teachers/bosses, and teammates/opponents. You don’t have to BE the best, but you should always TRY your best. That attitude will make you stand out from the crowd. “It’s never crowed along the extra mile.” The person that wins is not always the smartest, fastest, or most skilled, but the one who never quits and plays with passion.

Homework: Treat the tasks you like the least the same as the ones you like the most. Do a little bit extra and it won’t go unnoticed. I didn’t really feel like writing an entry on a Saturday night after a full day of teaching and errands, but you know what? I’m glad I did. If this blog helps out one person this weekend, then my job is done. Goodnight LA…
