Don’t Be Average.
Please don’t be average.
You are better than average.
Average seeks less, keeps New Year’s Resolutions for about a week, cares little about seeing things through.
92% of people making New Year’s resolutions never keep them.
Not one resolution.
-We are creatures of habit.
-We don’t like to be uncomfortable.
-We are most like the people we associate with the most...
1. Change your habits to things that manufacture discipline.
• Throwing out all junk food in your house and only stocking your fridge with healthy food.
• Blocking time wasting websites on your computer and reading and writing more.
• Canceling your cable and Netflix and listening to podcasts while you workout.
• Putting your alarm clock across the room so you have to get out of bed to turn it off and sleeping in your workout clothes.
• Packing your gym bag and leaving it in the back of your car so you are always ready to workout when the opportunity arrives.
2. Be aware of the things that scare you, and go do them (Because you’re only uncomfortable until you do).
3. Find people who inspire and motivate you – those who don’t become discouraged or overwhelmed, who instead relish the challenge and get excited to accomplish more (don’t look down, look up – your dreams are amongst the stars). Surrounding yourself with allies can be the difference between completing your quest and never building those new habits.
FIND YOUR PATH - #LIGHTITUP
Don’t leave your goals to the whims of inspiration or motivation. Create your own success by structuring your life and building your “fort” so your life is a system designed to change for the better.
Start by keeping the goal small and actionable. Make it black-and-white: I did this/I did not do this. The smaller the better… A five minute walk. A 10 minute swim. 250 words written in your book. One paragraph per day for your next newsletter.
Make your goals measureable (once per day, 5 minutes, $10 a week, every night), something you can attain and something that matters to you. If it doesn’t light you up, you’ll quickly be one of the 92%ers.
Set your goals, and don’t be average…like yourselves enough to know you don’t need certain things, but just want them. Have the morals and values to do the right thing, not the easy thing. Be self-aware about your own needs and what makes you a better person.
Attitude is so powerful, and it is something that we all control. It drives us to work hard and train for big goals. It allows us to dig deep and overcome huge challenges and pain. And it’s the best resource for overcoming disappointments that inevitably come into our lives.
You are not average.
If you are receiving this, you ARE NOT average.
You are smart and strong, determined and disciplined.
And you have the potential to do ANYTHING.
When you Sit, Sit. When you Stand, Stand. - By Anne
Strange title maybe, but in reading a book many years ago on mental toughness, focusing and being in the moment (today’s mindfulness), this is the one sentence I clearly remember. That and something about a leaf floating downstream (go with the flow).
<Side note: So, after writing the above paragraph I went in search of the book mentioned above. I knew I had it somewhere, although it has been many, many years since I have looked at it. I found it…”The Warrior Athlete” by Dan Millman. Quite dusty, I cleaned it off and reread much of the notes I wrote in the margins and the sections I had highlighted throughout the book. What a great handbook for mental training>
Focus is not something that comes easily in our day and time. Emails come whizzing in every 30 seconds, car horns and sirens sound at all hours of the day and night, the kids are in and out of the room/house, and the ever-present cell phone never stops.
Try and take a walk and just look at nature and all that is around you. Don’t think of the deadlines at work, the kid’s play on Saturday, the fast approaching Christmas Holidays, the bills that need to be paid, etc, etc.
Hard isn’t it? We have so much going on, and so many things we need to do, its hard to not continuously think about our to do lists, email checklists and multi-colored calendars.
And if we can’t even let this stuff go when we are trying to relax and focus and still our minds, how are we supposed to succeed when we are on the tennis court trying to block everything out and just take it “one shot at a time”?
“Focus.” “Just relax.” ”Let it go (sounds like a good name for a song!).” ”Clear your mind.”
Definitely words of wisdom, but only if you know how to do what they describe…how to focus, relax, let it go, clear your mind.
The first step is to realize we control our own mind. What/how we think, feel, react is up to us.
No one makes us mad or nervous or self-conscious, we let ourselves be mad or nervous or self- conscious. The actions of others don’t bother us, we let them bother us. Our thoughts and emotions are ours to control…we just have to be strong enough to do it.
Take responsibility for yourself and how you handle situations. If you are nervous, breakdown your thoughts and find out WHY you are nervous. Are you afraid of losing, being embarrassed, not fulfilling your potential? Dig deep.
Once you figure out why you are feeling the way you are take control of the situation and change it. In the end, our worries and fears are really not as important as we build them up to be.
Being calm is a choice. The art of being calm takes a lot of practice, but if we want it bad enough, we will do it. Again, the responsibility for being calm resides within us. We can get upset when we get a bad call or miss an easy put away, but we do not have to get upset. We choose to get upset.
Instead, we should control ourselves, look at the situation and realize we cannot do anything about the bad call. What is getting upset going to help? Yelling and getting upset about our missed put away will never fix it. Instead we can go back over the shot and figure out why we missed it so we won’t miss it again.
The choice of how we handle pressure situations or unsettling situations is ours. We make the choice on being calm or going nuts!
One thing that will help the way we react and handle situations is to make a list of all the things that could bother us in a match. Everyone is different, so no two lists will be the same, but many of us let ourselves be bothered by the same things such as:
- 1. People yelling or talking in the middle of a point.
- 2. An opponent who plays at a slow pace or takes her/his time on purpose just to bother us (most of the time it works)
- 3. People who disagree with us on line calls.
These are just three reasons we are bothered on the court, but there are many, many others.
Regardless, we need to have an all-encompassing list that truly exhibits our mental and emotional weak points during competition.
Once we have this list, divide it into areas of things we can control and things we cannot control.
The things we can control, we need to control. The things we cannot control, we need to let go. Why worry if we cannot do anything about them anyway?
In the end, being focused and relaxed are important for success in any sporting event. And they are ours to control. WE are the ones who decide whether we are going to think about all the things that happened at work that day or about the match we are about to play, what we need to do to be our best, how we can control our actions and outcomes. WE are the ones who decide whether we are going to be so focused and intense we don’t see the other players or spectators moving around talking, or whether we let them bother us until we can’t concentrate at all.
I like to think of stepping on the tennis court as a separate world. There I am comfortable and confident. I can control myself mentally, emotionally and physically. I can focus on the task at hand and be completely in the moment. When I hit, I hit and when I sit, I sit.
I am in control, confident and consistent. I know that’s what it takes to win, to do my best, to become a better player and competitor. Everything else goes away when I step on the tennis court, and like the leaf floating downstream, instead of fighting the forces around me, I just go with the flow.
