About This Episode

Most people, even non-sports fans are inspired by world-class athletes like Novak… but why? To be world class at anything it takes more than natural skill, it takes physical, personal, spiritual development and a healthy relationship with one’s own ego to begin a fulfilling journey to greatness - something we are all capable of, given we know how to use the appropriate tools. In today’s conversation, Novak shares everything. He even takes us back to his childhood where he remembers confiding to his tennis coach instead of his own parents about the growing pains of being a young man.

You can reach anything you desire in your life.” - Novak Djokovic

The Cliff Notes:

  • Feeling anger towards someone actually hurts ourselves, not the person we’re upset at
  • There is always time for everything
  • Understand that you will never be in balance because the world is constantly moving
  • Approach parenting as the spiritual opportunity to learn from children
  • Learn how to verbalize your emotions by finding mentors to help you
  • There is a difference between a successful life and a fulfilled life
  • Break habits/addictions and strive for complete focus of mind and body
  • “If you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail.”
  • Viewing ego as the enemy puts you on the reactive side—instead, befriend your ego
