I am on my way to Ft Lauderdale where I am presenting to the International Board of Directors of the Israel Tennis Centers. My task is to get these already successful people to refire their rockets to the place where they were when they first started and felt the passion every day.
I will talk to them about how bringing sincerity and full effort to every moment is the way to be amazing day after day, even in activities that may be old. There is a Japanese word, shoshin, that Zen teachers use. It means child’s mind, beginners mind. The ability to see this moment as the very first time. The child’s mind doesn’t look at the past successes or failures or the future concerns, worries or the gains from how things will play out. The child’s mind finds the newness and wowness of this very moment.
So, with that in mind, how will you approach, your next moment, minute and hour?
