Since university back to Cameroon, I have been hearing about a famous american female tennis champion.
She has been beating records and became the greatest in her area for decades. I never knew in my university years that I will find myself in the same country of such a legend.
Last month, as I was watching the news and a lot was said about her, I became curious to know what was the secrets of her success.
I found six things that made her successful. I found them so so simple that I wish I knew them since my twenties and started applying them on a concentrated way.
Thanks to God, I was exposed to other successful tips and, learning from her example is adding a great value in my life.
I would like you to learn and apply these simple life principles that will better your entire life.
