Maria Sharapovich is one of the most accomplished female tennis players in history. She is also an accomplished entrepreneur and inspiration to people all over the world. After an hour long interview with Lewis Howes, she revealed a few things that contribute to her success:
1) She has an Insatiable desire to win. She and her coach describe her as "consistently stubborn". She does not take NO for an answer. She will not settle. She will not accept losing, it's not an option.
2) She has a growth mindset and pushes herself on and off the court in the pursuit of excellence. She recently completed a business class at Harvard simply because she wants to learn and grow.
E.M. Gray was quoted saying, "The successful person has the habit of doing the things failures don't like to do." If your going to be consistently stubborn, be stubborn about your desire to win and grow. Be stubborn about doing the things that failures don't like to do.
