Serbian tennis player, world number two Novak Djokovic spoke about the importance of recovery for a stable mental state.
“People always say: forget about the past, don’t think about the future, live in the present. I do not think that’s possible. Our mind is like a traveler, it loves to move between past, present and future. He tends to do what we don’t want. If someone tells you to be calm, not to think about it, then you will almost certainly think about it.
I think one of the biggest lessons I’ve learned about fortitude is that if you lose focus and things go the wrong way for you, that’s okay. Accept it and then come back. And how long you stay in this state is what sets you apart from other people. Therefore, I believe that recovery is more important than hard work,” Djokovic said in a video posted on the social media page of entrepreneur Andrew Petcash.
