Redefining success: Tim Henman Life Lessons: From Sport and Beyond

    • Sports

What does success mean? Is the simple 'winner and losers' narrative we hear about in sport and life too simplistic?
Tim Henman reached six major tennis semi-finals - four at Wimbledon - and was ranked fourth in the world. And yet – in some quarters – there is a false narrative that somehow Tim didn't deliver, or choked when it mattered most. If that were true, then almost all of us are failures.
In this episode - we talk about exploring your potential – rather than setting a goal and limiting yourself – and why everyone’s journey and trajectory is different.
We discuss gratitude, honesty, humility – as well as the fickle nature of external approval and why having intrinsic self-worth is where the gold is.
We also talk about the lessons Tim learnt from being the first player to be disqualified from the Championships in 1995 - and it turns out that experience may have been a blessing in disguise.
