“When your feet are firmly planted, you are stuck. Welcome change!”

Happy Birthday to my brother-in-law, the great Stanley Ho in Austin, Texas.

Welcome to reality. Change is inevitable.

People are changing.

Our opponents are changing.

Weather conditions are changing.

Technology is changing.

But here’s the problem…

Nobody likes change. People like homeostasis.

I have a feeling that something in your life today will not go as planned, or you will experience some sort of change.

I challenge you to look at change differently today. Embrace it. Think about how it will make you stronger, smarter, more relaxed.

We often look at situations with our narrow points of view, but once we become more flexible and open-minded, our feet get un-stuck and we begin to change our lives and as a by-product, change the results we are getting.

What change are you going to embrace today?

Leave me your comments.

“I put a dollar in one of those change machines. Nothing changed.”

Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Melissa Sapio.

The joke above is funny. But it is also true.

I have been teaching tennis for the past 15 years and I have seen a common theme…

People want to become better tennis players, so they pay $80/hour for a lesson. There’s nothing wrong with that. But here is the problem…

They think that the $80 will change their game.

The lesson is just the beginning. You have to take action. You have to put in the work. You have to practice between lessons.

We live in such a fast-paced society with high-speed internet, fast-food and instant oatmeal, and many of us tend to want overnight success.

Do you know how long it takes to become an overnight success?

10 years!

So if you want to become a great tennis player, be patient and put in the work. Take action and create the player you want to be.

I have a secret…

I’m not perfect.

I am making changes in my own life right now to set myself up for the future. I’m willing to sow seeds today to reap tomorrow’s harvest.

Are YOU?
