Novak Djokovic: Strive to be the best version of yourself, not somebody else

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic visited Bosnia with his family earlier this week and of the tourism spots he visited was the Bosnian Pyramid Of The Sun in Visoko. Djokovic's host in Visoko was Semir Osmanagic -- a Bosnian businessman and author, who is best known for promoting his pseudo-archaeological project in central Bosnia.

"It doesn't happen at all, one is Novak Djokovic, one is Semir Osmanagic, everyone is an original version of himself and no should become someone else and copy another," Djokovic said, when asked how you become Novak Djokovic, as quoted on Mondo.

"Of course, you can copy something from a successful person to become the best version of himself. Everyone should strive to be their best version, to get to know themselves, who they are, the world they live in, the natural laws."

Djokovic, who is known for being incredibly spiritual, says the spirituality helps him find his peace and happiness. "It is natural, already implanted in us. When you are born, you are already spiritual and probably more connected with God.

When we are born we have different layers and molds that are imposed on us and we have to take that with us into life. It is a part of our evolution, development, I am proud of where I come from, I am aware of some of my responsibilities, but the most important thing for me is to be free.

When a person is free, turned towards love and peace, then he can be spiritual. For me, that is the ultimate freedom, which is the same as love;" Djokovic said.

Djokovic doesn't want to look too far ahead

Djokovic is currently ranked at No.

1 in the world, he has 17 Grand Slams and he is three Majors away from equaling Roger Federer's all-time Grand Slam record. But when asked where he sees himself in five years, Djokovic underlined his focus remains on the present.

"I do not know. I have some visions, but I don’t want to talk too much about it, because I want to live more in the present moment and less in the past and future. I project certain things through prayers, affirmations, visualizations, various things and techniques that can and should be used to pave the way for a state of mind, body and success, whatever it strives for in the future. I would be extremely happy and grateful to feel the way I feel now in five years. I'm fine," Djokovic said.
