Serena Williams started playing tennis early on. Back in 2011, she had a major injury that caused her to plummet from being number 1 to 172. In 2013 she gained her rank back.
She decided to persist regardless of her injuries and losses.
In 2015 Serena Williams already had 21 Grand Slam titles. She was only 1 title away from scoring 22nd one, which was only done by Steffi Graf. She made it happen by winning Wimbledon 2016.
Never give up. If someone else is winning, you can do it too.
Serena Williams: “I love who I am, and I encourage other people to love and embrace who they are. But it definitely wasn’t easy—it took me a while.”
We are all wonderfully unique, so don’t try to become more like someone else. And don’t listen to what others might say about you.
Your confidence can't be at the whims of every point, game or set lost. Knowing how to remain calm, not feeling discouraged or frustrated throughout a match can make all the difference.
Nothing is more unnerving than playing someone who can not be discouraged, and refuses to lose no matter how far behind they get.
Be laser-focused on your priorities and say no to any opportunities that might hinder your long-term goals. You’re in for the long-haul, not the sprint.
