The way Federer beat Cilic at Wimbledon proves that mental toughness is everything in tennis
We’re at the business end of Wimbledon with the men’s semi finals today, Friday, in the UK .
I liked this article by Anshul Gandhi from the Mens XP website about Federer’s mentally tough mindset in saving three match reports to beat Cilic in their QF match.
Can he go all the way ?
Most successful people possess the mental toughness personality trait. Having a mentally tough mindset invariably means you are in control of your career and life. You are persistent and committed to reaching your goals. You create and take opportunities and have the confidence and self-belief to achieve the impossible as well as the possible.
The foundation for this success is that a mentally tough mindset allows you to be in command of your life, your circumstances and your emotions. You have a strong purpose and a clear sense of who you are. You are comfortable with what you stand for, especially in the face of adversity. You have a dream and constantly ensure you live your life in alignment with this dream and are on a personal mission to make your dream come true.
A mentally tough person’s control means that you will usually just get on with things irrespective of how you feel. You take action and do the things that need to be done and will work through the emotions of the highs and lows without seemingly becoming derailed or distracted.
