Life Lessons From The World Of Sport

Standard

One of the reasons I love the world of health & fitness is that it is so much more than about getting fit, physically & mentally. I had the pleasure of listening to the story of the amazing legendary UCLA Coach, John Wooden, a coach who taught essential life lessons to his team in the world of basketball.

His pyramid of success lives on, encouraging, inspiring people inside and outside of sport and I wanted to share it here as a reminder to us all that we have unlimited potential if we are prepared to believe it, even before we see.

The key motto: Do the best YOU can.

If you give 100%, your 100% not anyone else’s, then you have given it all… 30-minute lesson you don’t want to miss… Watch, listen and learn!

Coach: The Life and Legacy of John R. Wooden

Live the life you were meant to, find a framework that means something to you and commit to living it every day.

Be your brilliant best!

Tennis – Hard Work & Dedication Pays Off

Standard

Hi & Happy July to you!

This month’s blog is all about Wimbledon and I am Soooo happy. Andy Murray did it again, Serena Williams and Andy Murray wimbledon prize moneySerena Williams did it again and Heather Watson did it for the first time in the mixed doubles… Wimbledon Bliss! And to top it all our British wheelchair champs claimed their place in Wimbledon history too: Gordon Reid, Alfie Hewett and Jordanne Whiley. Just brilliant. Their hard work and dedication paid off.

It has been a pleasure to watch Andy Murray blossom into the consummate professional he is today. I felt so proud watching him handle that game on Sunday 10th July. He expressed emotion openly and he was focused; the perfect game. Serena, as is usually the case, played like a powerhouse. To have spent so many years at the top of her game is truly amazing and as a woman of sport she has got to be one of the best role models out there; congratulations.

I could go on and on about many of the players I watched but the underlying point is that with hard work (and I mean real hard work), a great team to support, motivate and kick your butt, alongside a developed talent or skill, dreams can come true. The question is how committed are most of us to go all out? What are we willing to risk? Who do we have in our corner?

These are important questions for all areas of our life. If we want to get fit, work alongside those who are doing the same or who have been there, done that. If we want to progress in a career or build a business, same rule applies; find the team, put in the work consistently and grab every challenge that takes us outside of our comfort zone so we can grow.

Don’t just dream it, do it!
