I am so so thrilled for Andy Murray at last winning Wimbledon – tears were shed by a few in the Radcliffe household! And I was really chuffed that his coach, Ivan Lendl, got lots of mentions for the difference he has made to Andy’s performance.
In a FED nutshell, it sounds as though he’s done a great job helping Andy spend more time Being At his Best. I remember many times in the past seeing Andy ranting at this miss or that umpire call, that is, triggered into his Survival Mode and grumbling with a strong feeling of ‘this shouldn’t be’. It sounds as though Lendl doesn’t tolerate too much of that but encourages his man to accept what is and get on with the next point.
Do you have someone who simllarly gets you out of your triggered state, who helps you face life and make the most of it? If you want to make the full difference you can, you can’t do it alone. Like Murray, you need your Support Team who keep you on track. How many Ivan’s do you have??
