What does it mean to be a champion?

You don’t have to be Serena Williams or Michael Phelps to have the mindset of a champion. Finding the champion within is about resilience. It’s about uncovering and standing up to your greatest fears. It’s about having the inner strength to quickly get back up when you fail – again and again. It’s about believing in yourself so deeply, so strongly, that nothing can hold you back from achieving your goals.

True champions have an unstoppable belief in themselves and know how to turn obstacles into opportunities. Yet even the most determined champions face setbacks, andeven the most committed among us have moments when we want to give up.

Whether you’re training for a physical competition or want to be the best leader in the boardroom, having someone who can help you do this is of the utmost importance. The right coach provides inspiration and expertise when your determination wavers. And if you don’t have a coach – or don’t have access to yours right now – coaching quotes can do the trick.
