Episode 6: The Emerging Purple Patch Pros
You know it's going to be a good episode when Coach Matt Dixon refers to it as the "Brainiac Pro Edition!" Sonia Bracegirdle, Cecilia Davis-Hayes, and Laurence Delisle are the antithesis of what you might stereotype as a typical professional athlete.
Yes, all three are brand new pro athletes starting their journey to world-class, but they have already excelled in many other areas of life. Collectively, their academic, business and sporting accomplishments make up a body of work that is highly impressive even from the loftiest set of standards.
In this roundtable discussion from their recent training camp, they discuss the:
Personal reasons why they are pursuing this journey of professional sport
Benefits and challenges of being a high-achieving individual
Important roles that sports played in their academic and business careers
Delicate balance of work, school, and training
Value of coaches and mentors in school and training
Overcoming fears and intimidation as an emerging pro
Definitions of success
...and so much more!
Their perspective and experiences certainly provide a wealth of insight and inspiration for anyone who is on a quest for self-improvement.
