Absorb this talk from Coach John Nelson of University of Hawaii (retired), 26 years coaching, third degree black belt in Jujitsu . . . Art of Winning . . . finding a solution . . . staying in the moment . . . using discipline and training to overcome fear . . .
Tennis is like the martial arts . . .
Being centered, balanced, disciplined . . .
Low to the ground . . .
Power comes from the ground up . . .
Your mind is your biggest weapon . . .
It's like success in life . . .
It's about daily hard work . . . discipline . . . responding under pressure . . . facing your fears . . . problem-solving . . . and there's a solution to every problem . . . you are a student every day learning . . . as you get better, just simplify and make it simple, clean, smooth . . .
Indeed, tennis is a metaphor for life . . . it's about on-court heroics . . . overcoming obstacles, barriers, injuries, setbacks . . . battling against the odds . . . formulating a game plan and then executing it to victory.
