Lessons from US Open Tennis Championships 2014

I watched exciting tennis finals today as Marin Cilic defeated  Kei Nishikori.  Being of Croatian heritage myself, Marin Cilic’s win held a special place in my heart, Marin being the first Croatian to win a U.S Open.

Dedicated to personal development , I am generally very impressed by athletes who dedicate their lives to peak performance. They train relentlessly day in and day out, mastering plays through practice and repetition. You don’t just hit aces just like that, it takes practice and mistakes and more practice. The skill on that court was impressive to say the least. Hats off to both of them.

“For all the other players working hard, this is a big sign, a big hope,” Cilic said, “that if you’re working hard, things are going to pay off.”

After the game as I listened to interviews, it was not surprising what Marin Cilic said to reporterss with respect to the advice and encouragement he received from his coach, Goran Ivanisevic. He said (paraphrased a little) that Goran encouraged him to “believe” that he could win. He also emphasized the joy in tennis and always having fun.

I take this as a reminder of the importance of mindset in anyone’s journey to success. Belief and passion are instrumental when working towards achieving any goal. Not to take away from hard work and dedication or mastering skills, the missing ingredient, however is often mindset.  It is the mindset, the belief, the joy and passion that creates laser focus and results. It fuels courage and determination and erases fear.  It’s the difference between a superbly played game & loss, or a Grand Slam Title.

Don’t worry, be happy

Studies have shown that happiness contributes to good health, a healthy immune system and healthy marriages Happiness is contagious. Happier people eat better, 

sleep better, exercise more and is linked to living a longer life. 

 

“Happiness is Good Medicine. Happiness is native to the human mind and it’s physical machine. We think better, perform better, feel better and are healthier when we are happy. Even our physical sense organs work better.”

~ Excerpt from The new Psycho-cybernetics

 

Does it not make sense then to make happiness a part of your life?

 

I received some valuable advice at a critical time in my life about happiness that became a way of life for me: 

 

“Don’t wait for something to make you happy. Be happy first and that ‘something’ WILL happen”, I was told. 

 

 

Happiness is now and it is not a destination. In choosing to be happy now and in cultivating a habit of happiness, you are choosing a more fulfilled life now instead of waiting for some accomplishment or ideal conditions to make you happy. 

 

This philosophy I’ve adopted may seem hard to live by when illness, death and/or financial worries hit, and understandably so but understanding how this emotion/ state of mind can effect you is intrinsically important in living life to the fullest. 

 

We can manage to be happier even in circumstances that may not be ideal. Don’t let “outward conditions’ effect your happiness. 

 

An important lesson I learned that stuck with me is that of fact versus opinion. Our opinion  or our own interpretation of of the situation is not fact and often misguides our emotional state. 

 

For example when financial pressure or debt arises, it may be one’s opinion that it is a ‘catastrophe and that life is not worth living’. The fact is that, yes,  the debt is there, however it is merely an opinion that this is a catastrophe and life is not worth living.  Next time you find yourself in a situation where you begin to think that you are doomed or things are doom and gloom, think again… is it fact or is it an opinion… then change it.

 

Choose happiness…. 

 

To your success,
