My guest this week is Eric Bailey. Eric had to overcome incredible odds to realise his dream of being a professional basketballer. He played in the NBA and NBL and today travels the world teaching students and corporate audiences how to develop the mindset of a champion. If you're looking for a dose of inspiration and want to know how to cast a powerful vision for your life, this episode is for you.
This episode is a powerful example of what is possible if you are willing to do the work. Eric Bailey had lots of reasons why he could have given up on his dream to be a basketballer. From doctors who said he wouldn't be able to run due to a bone issue to coaches who cut him from the team. But Eric had a vision for his life and despite all the obstacles and challenges that life put in his path he succeeded in achieving what many thought was impossible.
The truth is our greatest learning opportunities come from facing difficulties and overcoming them. Champions don't hide from challenges they look for them. They recognise it's only by being uncomfortable that you can expand and grow who you are.
