Is tennis, or sport in general, really a metaphor for life?

Tennis is mostly mental. Of course, you must have a lot of physical skill, but you can't play tennis well and not be a good thinker. You win or lose the match before you even go out there.
Venus Williams - Wimbledon Champion (2000, 2001, 2005, 2007 and 2008)

As many of our colleagues are aware, Carol Cuthbert, Director of Kestrel Business Solutions, is passionate about tennis and it seems she has succeeded in passing her passion for sports and physical activity on to Yonwabe and Yolisa, who are equally determined to excel on the playing field as in art studio and the classroom.

Sometimes, the best you can hope for is to throw it all on the line, give it your all, and trust that you have done enough to achieve your aspirations both in life and the sports arena. The pursuit of excellence should involve fun… and lots of it. If you’re not taking yourself too seriously, it is easy to laugh when you make silly mistakes. And having fun is what keeps you coming back. Interestingly enough, people often play better and achieve more when they’re not taking themselves too seriously anyway.

Yolisa and Yonwabe love to laugh and for them it doesn't really matter if the end result is winning or losing. And in life it often doesn't matter either - the effort and intensity you bring is what ultimately determines whether you’ll be standing on the winner’s podium…

Tennis is a mind game involving strategy, skill and perseverance. You have to work hard, be strong, nimble and flexible – you have to know the playing field and how to get the most out of every move – all of these will make you a skilled player in life, business and sport but the most important attribute is to believe in yourself, your abilities and to focus on your goals.

As Richard Bach said "Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can."

Your support has made it possible for the Kestrel Education Trust to provide orphaned South African twins, Yolisa and Yonwabe with a sound education, stationery as well as daily meals. We would like to express our gratitude for the confidence that you have placed in Kestrel Business Solutions thus allowing us to help to grow future leaders from the previously disadvantaged communities of South Africa.

At Kestrel, we believe that the combination of education, hope and opportunity can inspire children to rise above poverty and hardship not only for their own benefit but for the benefit of others too... So as 2013 draws to a close, we would like to wish you a safe, happy festive season and may the year ahead be filled with peace and prosperity for you and your loved ones. And perhaps you might find the time to play a game of tennis...

Thank you for your continued support.
Carol Cuthbert, Desiree Koch
and the team at Kestrel Business Solutions
