I’ve come to realize that the language of TENNIS—
Break, Serve, Advantage, Fault, Love—
is the Language of Life.
Be willling to bend as far as you need to in life,
but don’t allow ourself to BREAK.
Refusing to give up, refusing to BREAK,
is the sign of strong character.
SERVE others with a glad heart.
Never say you’re too busy to SERVE.
Relatioships grow and strengthen
when your goal is to SERVE rather than rule.
Being blessed with another day to live
is being blessed with another opportunity to SERVE.
ADVANTAGES and obstacles are part of life—
they are the agonies and ecstasies
that serve to teach us about the art of living,
learning to overcome problems and experience triumph.
To every advantage you face in life,
there is a corresponding ADVANTAGE if you look for it.
Rather than finding FAULT, find a rememdy.
Don’t find FAULT with someone
before you take the time to understand them.
The FAULTS we find in others
are often the ones we see in ourselves.
When you arise in the morning,
think of what a privilege it is
to be alive, to enjoy life….to express LOVE.
