Martina Navratilova the greatest tennis player of her times was once asked by a journalist, “How do you maintain your focus, physique and sharp game even at the age of 43?”
She gave a humble reply, “The ball does not know how old I am.” You need to stop yourself from stopping yourself. Every game in life is actually played on a 6-inch ground, the space between your two ears. We don’t live in bungalows, duplexes or flats. We live in our mind which is an unlimited area. We keep on talking and thinking thoughts that are negative that affects our entire lives. Just like a bee that keeps on buzzing the whole day, we too keep on buzzing unwanted thoughts in our heads 24×7. Life is great when things are sorted out and uncluttered there.
Keeping the mind messy with hatred growing on the table, regrets piling up in corner, expectations boiling in kitchen, secrets stuffed under the carpet and worries littered everywhere, ruins this real home. The key factor to performing well in life and in every arena, is the ability to control the quality and quantity of your “internal dialogue”. We have to learn with perseverance and patience how to control our internal dialogue. Performance is potential minus internal interference.
Start your day with a clean slate. Everyday is full of infinite possibilities. Choose to believe in Love. Find reasons to smile and rejoice every precious moment of your life. Begin each day with a light heart.
