Federer, Belief and the Power of a Good Story 82

“Belief is the scepter of all champions. It’s the way they command respect from their competitors. It’s how they coordinate their amazing talents. In the end, it’s the difference between the legends and the other supremely talented stars.

The difference is crucial. With belief, another Grand Slam is always in sight; without it, he is just another talented player.”


Belief is forged in the stories we tell ourselves. It is easy to tell bad stories when things are not going well. The secret weapon of the very best is that they tell good stories…optimistic, positive, feel good, will do stories, even when things don’t look very bright. They will not be denied their good story.

I am a Federer fan. My story for him is a good one. I hope he has one too.
