“Why?”

“Because the principles of decision-making on my body are more important than any title.”

Tennis star Novak Djokovic is among the most courageous, authentic, and principled athletes on the world stage today, and he has been able—with calm and politeness—to convey what a free and inspired mind is.

He is a true role model for many young people and athletes and is our hero this week for standing his ground in the freedom to choose not to get the Covid injection. This decision has just resulted in his being excluded from the US Open tournament.

Here is a man who has built the world’s greatest tennis body and will not let media, governments, or his own ego destroy it. He knows that there is more to life than trophies—and he wins them anyway.

Novak Djokovic, who practices the Wim Hof Method, is an amazing man who in addition to working hard to achieve world-class success has also found what it means to be oneself.

Listen to him in a great interview speaking about his motivation in life.
