She is undoubtedly one of the most successful tennis players ever. Her business successes include a clothing line and an interior design company.

Venus, 42 years old, believes that it would not be possible to celebrate her achievements on the court and in the boardroom without her mental health.

Venus shared her thoughts exclusively with E! News. News. "Being happy is one the most underrated emotions.

People think about what makes them happy. But those are not the things that make them happy. You can be happy by just working to improve your happiness.

Venus recalled mental health as a topic of conversation throughout her childhood. The Olympic gold-medalist said that her parents prioritized things that "helped to make you happy",

such as being confident in your abilities, not succumbing to peer pressure, and having strong support systems.
