I watched the film “Eddie The Eagle” this weekend have you seen it? If not I highly recommend it.
I remember growing up as a kid, glued to the telly when the Olympics came on. It didn’t matter if it was the Summer or Winter Olympics I was there on the sofa, front row viewing. I found all the athletes inspiring with their focus, commitment, wanting to be their best, to break PB for themselves and their countries, going after their dream of being an Olympian and to stand on the podium and receive a medal.
I remember “Eddie The Eagle” came from nowhere. He was the guy that was kicked off every sports team, he was the kid that everyone made fun of and talked down to. And in the same breath he had hope and a dream of being an Olympian one day, representing his country and doing his best.
There was no fear, no ‘I’m not good enough’ thinking.
Instead this was replaced with guts, determination, persistence, commitment to his dream, follow through, being outcomes focused and realising his Olympian dream.
So next time you want to quit on your dreams, think of Eddie, and keep going.
Wish it …. Dream it … Do it!
