Jemima and Gemma talk 'respect'

The first of a four part mini-series where we talk about the 4 life-skills that we uniquely develop through the game with Everyball Tennis.

Not only to serve us in life outside tennis, developing Respect, Resilience, Responsibility, and Reflection help us become better competitors and players here and now!

Here, I ambush Jemima King and Gemma Elliott-Wetton as they have a quiet bit of lunch yesterday.

Disruptions - could they be good for us?

Sometimes we have an experience that doesn't fit within our particular framework of understanding, beliefs, values even.

Call it a disruption.

New York Times Bestselling Author Rob Bell writes in his new book:

'It's disruptions that are often the catalysts for our growth.  You travel, you taste, you meet new people from other tribes, you read new things, you hear new perspectives, you see data or research you hadn't seen before - and you discover that your previous way of categorising and labelling and believing aren't adequate.

You have a choice in that moment: you either ignore or deny or minimise your experience, or you open yourself up to the very real pain of leaving that way of understanding behind.

This is often incredibly exciting and liberating, but it can also have a traumatic dimension to it, like the carpet in being yanked out from under you.  Like the stable ground you've been walking on for so long is now trembling.

And you you can't go back.

Once you've tasted, you can't untaste.

Once you've seen, you can't unsee.'

Eyes up and looking forward...

Keep looking up and forward. Eyes ahead and on the prize (whatever you've determined that to be). What's the NSHJ (next small helpful job) to get you closer to where you want to be? One step at a time. Hope you're having a great week? (Thanks Chris Duffin for this pic!)
