Welcome to the Laurie Lawrence podcast stuff, the silver we are going for gold. This podcast came about by me wanting to value add to my online swim teacher and coaching platform worldwideswimschool.com.
It was simply an idea that I’d read and share chapters of the two books that I’d written about my eight Olympic Games adventures, and when I run out of chapters, I’d interview some of the great sportsmen and sportswomen that I’d encountered over the 50 years of my international coaching career.
The podcast is not meant to be a quick fix to get us achieving. It’s simply meant to be a help, a guide, a companion in the tough times. I wanted to share and show that dreams are important and we must hold onto those dreams. However, without hard work, those dreams are only fantasies.
The perfect result is when we dream and then make those dreams come true.
Only an individual with persistence and dedication, can make a dream come true. The choice becomes yours. If you want the edge in life or in sport, there are no shortcuts. You must work hard. Make tough decisions, sacrifice and march daily towards your goal. One step at a time.
If you are serious about winning, you must prepare to win. Enjoy the podcast. Tell your friends if it helps one person expand their lives a little or achieve their dreams, it will have served the purpose. If it doesn’t do this, try at least to remember the harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.
