In tennis, the majority of the game is spent volleying.
I hit the ball, you hit it back.
This is like a lot of engagements in life.
I throw something your way, you throw something back.
So, who are you volleying with?
People who are negative and sceptical of what you’re doing? People who deny the facts (as you see them)? People who don’t believe in the work you have chosen to focus your life on?
It’s unlikely that you will change anyone’s mind. It’s unlikely to make you better. But if you volley with them you will repeat, repeat, repeat…
Perhaps you’re better to play with someone else.
You have that choice.
Sometimes, I don’t have anything to add.

Have you ever seen someone driving a car you want, running a business you want, in a relationship you want, ***insert any reason in here*** and been jealous of them and wished you had that?
This past year has been tough in many ways.
When you know, you know.
“Never give up,” I’m sure you’ve heard that.
You’ve got two options..
“You’ll pay more, but you’ll get more than you paid for.”
How often do you hear the statement, ‘there just aren’t enough hours in the day”?
This is the first blog I’ve written since my cousin Matthew was killed flying a helicopter a few weeks ago.
