Why This Book Matters:
The Inner Game of Tennis explains the battle between conscious and unconscious thoughts during a game of tennis, and how one must learn to trust their unconscious to make the best decisions in a matter of moments.
The Big Takeaways:
- Tennis players aren’t just playing an outer game.
- If Tennis players are playing an inner game in an attempt to balance their conscious and unconscious.
- Execution is born from letting your unconscious mind take control.
- To execute the moves you need to win, you must let go of judgment and allow your mind and body do what it knows best.
- You must believe in your unconscious mind’s capability.
- You cannot continue to manage every little aspect of yourself and expect to see good results. It takes too much energy and effort, resulting in poor performance.
- Don’t fight your thoughts; teach them where to go.
- Just like in tennis, you cannot consistently focus on the future of the ball; you have to focus on where the ball is presently.
- The best teacher is life itself.
- The fear of messing up prevents us from doing in the first place. We must put those expectations of ourselves aside to learn from our experiences truly.
