The most successful have no concept of failure!!!

How do we know what we can achieve…?

This image of an incredible first ever car backflip was taken in February 2013 at Tignes Ski resort. The driver, Guerlain Chicherit, spent years of preparation in order to create the vision of what he believed possible.

As I finish a current coaching contract with the Australian Canoe Slalom team I realise why the most successful Olympic athletes are as successful as they are. They have a clear vision of what they want to achieve and believe it is possible.

The clear similarities between successful people seem’s so simple… a clear vision of what they want to achieve and believe it is possible with absolutely no concept of failure!

When you look closer you find something equally as important – they have a support team to help them… They realise they need help to achieve their challenge they must use people around them.  Both examples above prove that amazing achievements of success are possible, but the individual must choose the best people to help them. They need people they can rely on and trust to help them deliver.

When we have the right support, how can we possibly fail?
