Ep #26: Beau Robinson
Beau Robinson is a former Australian rugby union player who was in and out of professional rugby 4 times throughout his career. His story is possibly one of the most incredible examples of grit and resilience we've ever heard, while somehow managing to stay focused on his goal to succeed as a professional athlete. His attitude around achieving his goals is like juicing a lemon. It’s not about how big your lemon is, it’s not about how much juice is in the lemon. It’s about getting every last bit of juice out of the lemon and knowing that there is nothing left.
We dive into Beau’s journey from growing up and falling in love with team sport, to the challenges that he went through while trying to secure professional playing contracts as a young bloke. He had many wins and he also dealt with heartache, including the tragedy of losing his brother in an accident which he had to experience twice. This is an awesome story of the power of mindset in overcoming adversity while remaining persistently driven towards success.
