G OAL S ETTING Important to set goals. Guides you where you need to go. Goal should be very specific and not vague Should have short, medium and long term goal Goals are always ever adjusting
D ISAPPOINTMENTS Broke my arm when I was 15 years old Commonwealth Games 2006 Car crash in 2007 Season of 2010
H OW TO DEAL WITH D ISAPPOINTMENT ? Everyone faces some form of disappointment in their career. It is how you bounce back from the disappointment that defines you as an athlete and as a person. My method - stay positive (sometimes harder to do), prepare, be flexible

W HAT IS S UCCESS ? Success is different for each individual It doesn’t mean that you have to have won the competition to be successful It is as important to enjoy the journey of becoming successful.
