Work and life lessons we’ve learned from Rafa Nadal over the years: 🎾 Resilience in the face of adversity. Injuries, set-backs, changes... You can always adapt and overcome whatever life throws at you. 🎾 Bring your best to every situation. Big or small, every moment matters. 🎾 Tenacity. Pursuit and fight for your goals until the last minute. 🎾 Excellence is a habit. Know your strengths and weaknesses, continue to learn and work on improving them. 🎾 Consistency and organization. Finding a system of routines or rituals helps to stay focused and grounded.
