Tennis is a wonderful game. It teaches us lessons in it’s own silent way. In my own perspective, I believe the game or sports points out to us people who use us to have fun or collect accolades. When the game is being played , all you hear is “ding-dong” – The ball cries. It might mean nothing to you but how about you imagine yourself being played around like the ball? How about you imagine being in the midst of two or more people being played as a means of recreation , competition , or entertainment? And after the whole “ding-dong” process, nobody even pays attention to the ball. Do you want to be controlled or do you want to be in control? I know what I want. Life is like the tennis court :
- Some are the tennis ball being played around.
- Some people are actually in the game to hit ball around – To Play the game.
- Some are just spectators.
Now, who do you want to be? Huhn? Answer YOU. As for me , I hate being played by people or by circumstances. I seek clarity in everything because I hate to play the role of a victim. I like to hit the ball around – To actually be in the game. In fact , I hit the ball hard. In my world, I don’t play people or hit people around. I hit my challenges around and believe me, I’m not playing against anybody. It’s ME vs My Dreams!
The only time I permit myself to be a spectator is when I want to learn from the BIG players. There’s nothing wrong in being a spectator as long as you use it as a means to learn new skills and new moves. There’s a great deal of error in being the tennis ball. Being played around by people or circumstances sucks. You have to control every portion of your life. Don’t be a victim! I remember a quote from Will Smith in a movie (FOCUS) – “There are two types of people in this world , the hammer and the nails . You decide which one you want to become!”. My dear , BE THE HAMMER – Nothing else pays!
Once again, don’t play the victim role. Grab life by the throat! Don’t complain, instead , find a way. Don’t just play the game, immerse yourself in the game. Be the player , don’t be played! You can be the PLAYER, be an “intelligent” SPECTATOR but avoid being the ball that wails – “DING-DONG”. Take CHARGE! Hey, don’t be a “DING-DONG”!
