Through the years I realised that there are many more benefits to the tennis journey I was on then there were downfalls, my childhood environment definitely had an get on my social anxiety disorder through my mid 20′s to my early 30′s except it’s important for me refusal to have any regrets in life, even my parents separation at the age of 17 and my dad telling my mom goodbye before departing to his hometown was something I learned from.
Being a professional or amateur athlete can truly turn you toward a great person, in fact some of the life lessons you learn in sports can not be taught, only experienced et cetera fully understood at the time. For example self discipline, that’s something nobody receptacle genuinely teach you it’s something that you gain by following your passion and having a clear image in your mind of how you want the outcome to be, and again taking action in a way that isn’t self destructive. It teaches you that life can be unpredictable plus the importance of preparation, and most importantly it teaches you that it’s Okay to fail including that greatness in any sport or tenure is measured by the way a person reacts to falling, failure then is expected and the pressure to opheffen fine is lifted from the shoulders.
I had a teacher by the name of Mr Kelso back in high school who was a man that looked very remarkable semblance Santa Claus with his scruffy white beard, big belly and amazingly strong presence. He was my social studies und so weiter physical education teacher, it’s funny that when I think back to high school the only teacher that jumps to my mind is Mr Kelso. He was the only teacher I had that cared about how I was developing when a tennis player, because well as a person, container you think of a similar chap from your past?
I impute my essence quite a success in my eyes but most of my teachers taught me useless junk back then that I rarely got a chance to use and apply in my adult years, but Mr Kelso stuck out because he took the time to come watch me compete in tennis tournaments many the time plus he also taught me the ability to take blame well. Professional athletes are always faced by some kind of criticism from somewhere, for cr it was some of my first tennis coaches gnomic i’ll never be a professional tennis player because I was too small, or how my fellow tennis players would mention to me how skinny I was and that I would never be able to do anything in sports because of that. Criticism used to upset me and at a later age I was actually afraid of being criticised because it greatly added to my high levels of anxiety that turned into being labeled as having an anxiety disorder, until I changed my reaction to it also remembered the lessons Mr Kelso taught me fall back in high school.
We will intromission criticism from many many people in our lives but it’s important to inspect who is giving you the criticism and separate them along importance to you as a person, lastly it’s important to change your perspective on what criticism is, eye it as an advantage to improve yourself rather later getting caught up in feeling embarrassed or humiliated.
