“It’s the ball, silly.
It’s not about the opponent or the score or the questionable call on the previous point.
It’s not about your reputation, your ranking, or your record.
It’s certainly not about the crowd or anyone’s expectations.
It’s just the silly, yellow ball and your determination to stay in the present and not give in to anger, frustration, or inattention.
It’s really boils down to you and your total commitment to take care of that one ball.
Put it away!
Just don’t be careless with it—–it’s the only silly ball that matters.”
