On Episode 74 of The Tennis Files Podcast, I spoke with Jeff Salzenstein about how we can achieve our potential by changing our belief system and attitudes. This is one of the most mind blowing episodes I've done so far, and contains a ton of highly actionable tips that will motivate you to make a shift in your daily habits and approach to life. Be sure to have a pen and pencil handy if you can, you're going to learn a lot from my interview with Jeff on mindset performance!
In case you don't know about Jeff, he is a former top 100 ATP Pro and one of the most well-respected tennis coaches in the game. Jeff has battled against many of the best tennis players in the world throughout his career. He has combined that experience, along with his desire to learn all he could about playing optimal tennis, to create many of the most popular online tennis courses in the world. And the very first online tennis course that I ever invested in was from Jeff! He has recently shifted his focus to mindset performance and it was awesome to bring him on the podcast once again. Jeff first made an appearance on Episode 28 of The Tennis Files Podcast.
On this episode, we talk about Jeff's famous battle with Michael Chang at the US Open, how to break through negative thought patterns, the importance of communication, surrounding yourself with positive influencers, Jeff's morning routine, and much more!
