Stanislas Wawrinka is a man with crystal clear intent.
As Wawrinka played the most magnificent performance of his career to date against such a formidable opponent as Rafael Nadal, almost every shot he delivered was a winner. In quick succession he skilfully executed a series of winners to close the first set, and subsequent sets bar one, stunning Nadal with his prowess.
His intent was clear.
Let’s take a look at Wawrinka’s intent for today. His focus was to win his first Grand Slam tournament. This is a massive personal and professional goal to realise and reach. To enable the success of his intent, Wawrinka had to execute every shot he played with pure intention, from his serve through to his court placement of the ball, on a consistent basis.
Teamed with his tennis skill, and possibly the most important aspect of his game, was his positive mindset to believe he could win.
Without the power of collaboration between mindset and skill, Wawrinka’s dream could have remained unfulfilled. Even though there were a few glitches in intent, Wawrinka regrouped and delivered his winning shots!
So, what do you need to do to enable yourself to achieve clarity of intent, and go on to deliver your finest performance to ‘win’ a Grand Slam in your life or business?
