BITG 054: Athletes – How do you Measure your Success in Sport?

April 9, 2015

How do you measure your sporting success?

Your gauge on success is as individual as your fingerprint.

We all strive, at an animalistic level, to be successful. It’s part of our survival instinct, our social standing and our unique identity.

And sometimes we are quick to judge others on their perceived successes.

But do you really know what success is and how to create it and nurture it?

Humans are primarily pack animals and so some of us instinctively strive to be at the top of that pack. Whereas others just talk a good game and some are happy to assimilate.

Sport is founded on those same primal animal instincts, being the most successful is how we gauge a champion, someone who did something better more times than the rest of the herd! Yet we intuitively know little about what constitutes a real success, let alone how to replicate it.

In this episode of Brain in the Game we look at what, why and how we use success smarter.
