About 13 years ago, I was at Mt. Hood Snowboard Camp and I saw this little kid absolutely tearing up the snowboard park. He was about four feet tall and weighed maybe 90 pounds. It was a young Shaun White.
He is now the dominant force in the snowboarding world and there is no close second. In following his career, I have never found a young guy with a stronger focus than this star. He knew exactly what he wanted at a young age and nothing got in his way.
By having a clear sense of where we want to go, we can achieve incredible things. What do you want?
Check out this short video of Shaun’s Gold run from 2006. He was only 19 when he won his first Olympic Gold in the Halfpipe.
As a motivational speaker and college speaker, I learn so much from all-stars like Shaun, who remind us all about why we need goals and focus.
