David Karasek is a former Olympic swimmer whose passion for sports and competition has not diminished since he stepped out of the pool. Instead, he has been on a journey of self-discovery, learning how valuable and empowering it is to have a positive mindset before you are successful. He argues that believing you are capable of being successful is the essential first step to take as, without it, your self-doubt will impede you in those high-pressure moments. Armed with both this understanding and with his own personal experience, David is now a full-time mental coach. His mission is to share his insights with others, particularly athletes, as he wishes someone had shared with him when he was at the top of his game.
In this interview episode, he and I look back on his physical journey to the London 2012 Olympic games and the mental journey that he has taken since then. His story is both motivating and elevating!
