“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation. Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what? After you start doing the thing, that’s when the motivation comes and makes it easy for you to keep doing it.”

Have you ever not wanted to go to work?

Have you ever not wanted to go to school?

Have you ever not wanted to go to practice?

Many of you are suffering from anal glaucoma.

You can’t see yourself getting your butt to work, school, or practice.

One of the secrets to success is doing what you have to do, when you have to do it…whether you want to or not.

Just because you feel a certain way doesn’t mean you need to act a certain way.

Start taking the correct action today!

Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Sandy Mittleman in Boston.

“Adversity causes some men to break; others to break records.”

I love this quote.

Someone once said, the only people without problems are the ones in the cemetery. We all have problems, they are a part of life. We cannot avoid problems, but we can control our reactions to them.

Some people break, fold, or run away when they are under pressure.
These are the losers.

Other people thrive under pressure; they love it. They increase their intensity and focus. They break records.
These are the winners.

It’s not pressure, it’s perception.

In my book, “Game. Set. Life.” I talk about how at the end of a set, when the pressure was greatest, Pete Sampras rose to the occasion and improved the level of his game. That’s why he was #1 for so long.

To be just like Sampras, you have to think just like Sampras.
