When the stakes are high people can suffer from self-doubt, a lack of motivation or a fear of failure. Overcoming these obstacles is the key to success.

Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson's haul of Paralympic medals is a result of focus and preparation

Multi Paralympic champion Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson spoke to Chartwell about the difficulties, particularly in sport, of overcoming poor performance or injury. Baroness Grey-Thompson recognised the importance of having a strong team as well as focus, preparation and determination to achieve long term goals.

Robert Kelsey’s book, What’s Stopping You?, provides a blueprint for overcoming obstacles to success. After a lifetime of self-help addiction, and what he perceived as under-achievement, Robert’s book focuses on the insecurities that can hinder progress in careers, especially the ‘fear of failure’, which Robert calls a ‘mass condition’ affecting many people who are unaware of it.

Sage advice indeed, but can any amount of preparation guarantee success in the most high-pressured of circumstances?
