WEEK 3 – MARCH 2006


Greetings this week come from Miami, Florida. I am here preparing a player for the NASDAQ 100 Open. Talking of preparations, I also want to send my best wishes to my dear friends who read my weekly quotes at the High Performance Centre in Pretoria, South Africa in preparation for the upcoming African Junior Championships in Egypt.

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
Colin Powell

The fight is won or lost far away from the witnesses, behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.
Muhammad Ali

“At this point, I’m in shape and I’ve done all of my workouts, and there’s nothing else I can do as far as that kind of preparation, ” he said. “So there’s nothing to be concerned about – just go in there and execute.”
Michael Johnson – before winning the Olympic Gold Medal for the 400m in 2000.

Be prepared. You never get a second chance to make a good first impression.
H.J. Brown, Jnr.

Whatever you are preparing for, simply do it. The preparation you do today will determine tomorrow’s achievement.

Sporting regards
