Confidence: Sir Chris Hoy

Why having self-doubt is normal and how preparation and perspective are key, with the six-time Olympic gold medallist.

Why having self-doubt is normal and how preparation and perspective are key. Sir Chris Hoy won six Olympic gold medals during his dazzling cycling career, and he was World Champion 11 times. He was inspired to take up the sport after watching "ET", and began in BMX before switching to track cycling. In this episode, Hoy talks about confidence and why self-doubt is normal. He talks about the value of preparation and perspective, and why dreaming big is an absolute must. Hoy explains how to develop the right attitude, why looking a fear of failure in the face can be utterly transformative, and how thoughts of winning and losing create pressure – so learn to stay in the now by focussing on the process. @simonmundie
