New starts can be challenging at the best of times but just imagine if you were making a new start in the public eye and you already have a big success behind you…
That’s just what Greg Rutherford is planning to do as he retires from his successful long jump career and I’m full of admiration. It’s really putting himself out there and lots of people are bound to have an opinion and many won’t be reticent about sharing them.
There is now talk of him becoming a tv pundit and/or, and I think this is the braver option, making the switch to cycling. It would be a big challenge for anyone to switch career after such success but when you attract the headlines as Greg does then all eyes are definitely going to be on him.
Thinking about that makes any change that I might make this September feel relatively easy. I’m not in the public eye the same way that he is. Yes you may be watching but I know you are a friendly crowd and I’ve certainly not had any world renowned successes to date so a switch wouldn’t be as drastic or as public.
If you applied the same thought process to any changes that you might be considering……..does that make it any easier and less scary? Are you feeling any braver now? Can you find inspiration from Greg to use your skills and ability in a very different way going forward?
