4 Lessons from Tennis That Successful People Use and Why You Should Too for Achieveing Your Goals

1- Keep your eye on the ball

keep your eye on the ballA key component of a winning strategy in tennis is keeping your eye on the ball. No matter what an opponent does, a player is in control of the game as long as she keeps her eye on the ball.

“I’ve watched and played countless hours of tennis and whether it is Wimbledon or the Australian Open or the local court, I’ve never once seen a player win a match by looking at the scoreboard. Champions keep their eye firmly focused on the ball and let the scoreboard take care of itself.”

Catherine DeVrye, 2x  Australian Keynote Speaker of the Year

As you try to lose weight, get fitter, become healthier, or change your lifestyle, it is sometimes hard to focus on the core activities that can get you there successfully. There is a difference between focussing on your core activities and just fulfilling them. Most get caught up in the running of the day-to-day life that it can get hard to give the personal touch to what you really should be doing to achieve your goals.

In a world full of temptation, how will you get ahead of the curve and reach your destination if you do not keep your eye on the ball and give your utmost to getting what you want?

Some of the most succesful people in the world are unfairly dubbed ‘stubborn’.

This means that sometimes they go against the advice of loved ones, stop trying to please everyone, and keep their eyes firmly focused on what they set out to attain. That is all that matters to them. Continue reading

5 Signs You Need to Appreciate Yourself More & How to Do It

I’m going to let you in on a little secret: you don’t have to be going through life at a rock-bottom level, massively struggling with your body image, confidence non-existent; to be in need of a little TLC in the area of self-appreciation.

There are no extremes when it comes to self-worth. Picture one end of the spectrum full of confident, successful, thriving people and the other packed with those of us still trying to figure life and ourselves out and dropping the ball at every turn. That sounds pretty unrealistic, doesn’t it? The truth is, there exists a HUGE gray area in between those two extremes, a gray area that most everyone on earth (yes, really. I know from working in Hollywood – celebrities, gurus, politicians, athletes – everyone) falls into.

I have some pretty amazing people in my life, including my mentors and a lot of coaches in my network, all of whom I look up to and find myself constantly in awe at their ability to seemingly have it all together, all the time. But the reality is that when I take a moment to look closer, to dive in deeper with them, to ask the sensitive questions, even they can always use a boost in the self-love department.

So wherever it is you stand right now – rock bottom, right in the middle, or thriving – here are 5 signs you need to appreciate yourself more plus some ideas for how to do just that. Continue reading
