THE SURPRISING MINDSET MASTERCLASS FROM THE NETFLIX SHOW ‘BREAK POINT’
The Netflix Show that follows players through a Tennis Season & teaches us everything we need to know about strength, resilience & courage
The series highlights how everyone came into the sport at different times and from different circumstances, but all with a common goal:
TO WIN A *GRAND SLAM
*The Grand Slams are the biggest championships in tennis. There are 4 that happen each year: Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and US Open
In this blog I’m sharing my Top 5 Mindset Lessons from watching Break Point Seasons 1 and 2:
LESSON 1: FOCUS ON YOUR OWN GAME
There’s always gonna be people doing better and worse than you.
People doing completely different things – some that work for them / some that don’t.
People judging you for your efforts and throwing you off your game.
Your only job is to focus on your own game.
Keep your eyes firmly fixed on your own plan and keep taking the actions.
Everyone else’s game doesn’t matter – focus on your own game.
LESSON 2: TRUST YOUR TALENT
You’ve put in the work.
You know your stuff.
Have faith in your expertise and abilities.
Focus on doing the best job you can and things will work out in your favour.
Trust yourself implicitly.
Follow your gut and let your instincts guide you.
Relax and enjoy the game.
LESSON 3: SELF DOUBT IS NORMAL
Even the best players in the world have self-doubt.
It’s completely natural.
The key is to learn the tools to work with self doubt rather than let it stop you.
Remind yourself of all the wins and successes, all the good work you’ve put in, all the preparation.
Try not to compare yourself to others – everyone is on their own journey.
Get a good coach to help you overcome obstacles and keep moving forward.
LESSON 4: IT TAKES TIME
The road to being The Best (whatever that means to you) is a long one, filled with ups and downs.
Release the timelines and set your sights on the long-game
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.
Sometimes you get injured and are out of the game for a while.
Those that become The Best do not quit.
They recognise the journey is necessary to get to the destination, and keep focussed on taking the steps forward.
LESSON 5: WORK HARD & SMART
Put in the effort – even on days when you don’t feel like it.
Hire the coach – they’ll help you work smarter so you get stronger faster and have the tools to succeed in the long-term
No-one becomes The Best alone.
Hone your skill, deepen your expertise, set the highest standards for yourself.
Optimise everything so less effort delivers more results.
BONUS LESSON: YOU WON’T WIN THEM ALL!
Whenever you’re doing something that requires skill, resilience, hard work, dedication, and effort there are gonna be times when things don’t go your way.
You may lose an important point, or lose an entire game.
That’s okay. This is how you learn to get stronger and play smarter.
Take every set-back as a valuable opportunity, course correct, and come back stronger.
Don’t let one loss throw you off track.
