Here’s a an easy mental toughness tip that you can instantly start to use.

1. Stand or sit up straight.
2. Stick your chest out.
3. Bring your shoulders back.
4. Lift your chin up.

Now feel negative.

You can’t do it, can you?

I can tell you to try to feel confident, happy and positive, but you may not be able to.

But I can say smile, or act like the most confident person in the whole world and you can. The beauty of this is that even if you have to fake it at first, soon you will feel it.

Congratulations to Rafael Nadal and Francesca Schiavone and a special thank you to the great Angie Holmberg who snapped some great shots of Game. Set. Life. on her recent trip to London and the French Open. See below.


Andre and “Center Stage” host, Michael Kay

“Game. Set. Life.” Only on Yes!

Andre reading “Game. Set. Life.”

Yesterday was one of the best days of my life.

I was invited to a private taping of the “Center Stage” show in New York City.

The host: Michael Kay
The guest: Andre Agassi
My seat: Second row, center

I don’t know where to begin. This may have to be more than one blog entry.

I think the most important message Andre wants to convey is that we all have choices…and it’s never too late.

Andre CHOSE his life at age 27. Before that he was forced to play tennis and hated it. But then he hit bottom and then had to choose between hanging up the racquet, or going all out.

He chose to go all out.

He re-dedicated himself and got back to the top of the tennis world.

We all make our own choices. And we have to take risks.

Agassi says, “Anything worthwhile in life comes with a risk…this book was a risk. Some people may read it and like it, and others may not. If I can inspire one person, give one person hope, my job is done. In my life, I was finally happy to change myself – that was the only thing I could control.”

“I was gonna hang in until I had nothing left to give.”

I really like that quote.

Andre went all out and at the end of his career, he was satisfied. It was the end of that chapter in his life. He had no regrets.

And that’s what this blog is all about…are you going to go all out or hold back.

Andre’s final words…

“It’s never too late…go out and get it.”

Thanks for reading.


“I am just a regular guy, and I’ll show you what a regular guy can do”

It’s French Open time.

The red clay at Roland Garros is definitely slower than the courts at the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open, but that ball will still be hit over 100 miles per hour.

It will be hit with different spins, at different heights over the net, and all over the 78 foot long court.

But look at the tennis ball photograph above. That ball only has potential energy. Nothing will happen until its state changes. Nothing changes until that player picks it up, tosses it in the air and puts it in play.

You are like that tennis ball.

You are potential energy. You could have all these great ideas. You could say you’re going to do all these great things. But unless you actually change states and take action, nothing will happen.

Take action today.

Thanks for reading.
