As a tennis player, your main goal should be to reach your full potential and then take your competitive career as for as you can.
To do that though.
You have to model your inner training after other great tennis Champions.
The inner game is what all Champions have mastered!
Here are 5 tips that can help you reach your full potential.
1) Write down your tennis goals.
Twice a day, once in the morning and then again at night.
Carry them around with you and look at them during your downtime.
2) Visualize your goals.
Your picture may not be clear at first, but just keep doing it every day.
With practice, they will become clearer and clearer for you.
Visualization doesn’t work for most people because they don’t do it long enough.
It’s the law of practice.
The more you do something, the better you get at doing it.
3) Take action.
This is where you have to be careful.
Don’t just take any action, take inspired action towards reaching your tennis goals.
This means you should be feeling good when taking this action or stop doing it!
Tennis is a FEEL game in the learning stage, but it’s all MENTAL in the competition phase.
Write that down and refer back to it.
4) Be persistent.
Focus on being the best that you can be at every giving moment of your day and never lose sight of your goal (To reach your full potential).
I heard this quote from a speaker the other day and I can’t get it out of my mind.
“The biggest problem in our society is unfulfilled potential”!
When I heard that, it just slapped me in my face!!
Because it is so true.
The biggest problem that is facing our game and the world, in general, is people not reaching their full potential.
Wouldn’t you agree?
5) Keep adjusting your approach.
Now, after you follow the above steps.
You must adjust your plan, strategy, and training.
Look at everything as feedback and then make the needed adjustments and keep progressing towards your tennis goals.
Develop an adaptable mindset and get rid of your mechanical mindset.
Too many players have a narrow mindset and this narrow mindset turns into tennis slumps that can last their whole careers.
Think about like this.
If something isn’t working, just stop doing it and try something else.
If your current mental training, isn’t helping your match play performance, let it go!
They are all just experiences, that you either learn from or you keep repeating over and over again.
Reaching your full potential is learning how to win the inner game.
It has nothing to do with the game itself.
It’s all about how you getting that winning feeling and then allowing that same feeling to transfer to your tennis matches.
Everything will then work out from there.
