Secrets to actually improving your mental endurance and your game

Posted on September 24, 2019 by Fred Robinson

Question:   I’m better than they are so why did I lose? Answer:  You are not better than they are and your ego is killing your potential.   Guess what… If someone just handed you your lunch in a match, than they were better than you were -  at that moment in time.  Perhaps if you played them ten times you would win nine of those, but there is still that one time remaining.  Perhaps if you played them ten times, you would lose all ten of them and you live in a state of denial.   Here is one secret that haunts players of all levels, including ATP and WTA players: It's the unwillingness to change.  If this were not true, most players would be quickly moving up the ladder in development.  However, we know this is not so.     Just look at the pros.  How many of them have fairly obvious weaknesses in their games?  We see and hear it all the time.  Why don’t they fix their crappy backhand, volley, or their fitness level?  They have elements of greatness mixed in with average to poor technique.  This is crazy, right?   Think about it.  The very irony of this one statement:  I want to improve, but I don’t want to change anything.  This, my friend, is a classic example of common sense and common sense is lethal to anyone that is evolving with a growth mindset and desires excellence.   Learn this mantra:  There is a direct correlation to the level of dedication and the amount I advance.   You must out-work and out-think your opponents.  But how?    Step One:  Attack your weaknesses with a vengeance greater than any opponent you will ever play. Step Two: Learn the destructive power of words like talent, effortless, quick and easy, and especially, FREE! Step Three: Learn the difference between a Fixed Mindset and a Growth Mindset.  Cultivate the  Growth Mindset.    In my upcoming blogs, you can learn about these three steps in more detail.  Then, you can develop a map to make solid, consistent improvements.

Fred's Favorite Body Helix Products

Posted on August 05, 2019 by Fred Robinson

Body Helix all began because I strained a hamstring and it wasn’t getting any better.  After playing for months with the constant pain, I was fed up!  I had tried everything on the market and came to one simple conclusion: None of these companies cared about me or my pain!  They were all using the cheapest neoprene material and they wouldn’t stay in place.  They didn’t give me much support, they filled up with sweat because of the material, and they were disgusting because I couldn’t wash and dry them!

Fuel for the Mind: Book Recommendations

Posted on July 16, 2019 by Fred Robinson

I go through books like most people go through coffee.  Therefore, if you have been following along with my other blog posts, you will likely see a lot of references to my reading.  Right now, though, I want to share a few of my "Fuel for the Mind" reads that I think can help you with your mindset.  If you want more or need specific suggestions, just reach out to me and I am always happy to share my library.  These are light, quick reads with great inspiration in them. I have found that most people who have an interest in sports will walk away with significant gains from these. [...]
