How to deal with an enemy or toxic person
I want you to start to think of this person as a “Metaphorical Tennis Player.”
View your enemy as someone who is helping you to improve at the game of life.
As you might already know, one of the best ways to get better at tennis is to play with a worthy opponent.
When you play with someone who challenges you, they force you to step up your tennis game.
In fact, if you want to become a better tennis player, it actually helps a lot to have a tough opponent.
The more the other person hits that ball all over the court, the more they will help you improve how you play.
With the help of a tough opponent, you’re forced to bring in your A-game.
Well, the same thing applies to becoming better at the game of life.
Often we don’t want to put in the effort to work on important life skills.
But we will work on these life skills – if we’re forced to!
And we’re finally forced to work on our “A Game”when we’re face-to-face with a “tough opponent” like an enemy.
