uh_huh winning isn't everything wanting to erase right
00:00:11
this image i found a while ago
00:00:14
that i thought would be a great uh able to start with because it reminds me of a great story
00:00:21
when i was around fifteen hang around skate or i'll
00:00:27
all of a sudden johnson and the first ever olympic gold medal less than half five snow boarding
00:00:34
comes up to me we we knew each other already or skating together all
00:00:38
of a sudden really really serious young comes up to me and says
00:00:45
you concentrate on skateboarding snow boarding and forget about when and
00:00:50
and drops all of a sudden you know like
00:00:53
it's it's still stock in here i'm really okay uh every single time i remember it's it's or fine
00:01:04
so what might talk about winning today i me he already said i hope she wouldn't
00:01:11
i i was very fortunate to win this year when that olympic gold medal that's the same one
00:01:18
to sixteen years later after johnson and the first time and this is what it looked like
00:01:25
this image means everything to me i mean i have it's it's one
00:01:29
of those images it's when it just bring in a moment
00:01:33
i like i like to show it because it's one of my favourite images and i think it's one of
00:01:37
the those things that i think they have the ability to have a chance to last me forever
00:01:45
and i think most of the things i do or i try to do or write five four
00:01:53
the biggest accomplishment would be if they could last forever
00:01:57
now more about winnie i said winning isn't everything
00:02:01
this is the during my winning run and winning if if i say when
00:02:07
winning isn't everything what am i saying here you know like it's
00:02:10
it's a dream a dream come true me saying that feels feels weird
00:02:15
saying that but i'm i'm point you point to make here
00:02:18
my life is a snowboarder past fourteen years i've pretty much been all off of this
00:02:24
looking for the next trick looking for the next thing you looking for the next challenge in
00:02:30
when i when i look at all the winners in the past and all
00:02:34
the people i look up to even at my own choices i've made
00:02:38
a lot of the times when he especially in our score it doesn't really mean the same thing you would imagine
00:02:46
what am i saying that we're just by overall impression you know the overall impression of my grandma is not
00:02:53
the same of the judge sitting in the booth and i i don't wanna compare those two but
00:02:58
in in general i was a kid once and the perfect his
00:03:02
example to bring this a little bit closer to you
00:03:05
would be to show you my least favourite winner in our um
00:03:09
competitive snow boarding have five history this is ross powers in the middle of
00:03:15
a way more beautiful back so there that i showed you myself
00:03:20
why am i showing you this because when i was sick here it was a great memory of when
00:03:25
i really didn't want someone to win although he was writing best was right in the highest and
00:03:34
really doesn't make sense right now i know what all of people and maybe or just yet but
00:03:39
i i you you sitting in front of the t. v. and i really when it when
00:03:42
it came out thirty one i wanted to throw that in the other window no
00:03:47
maybe it was my brother you know when he was dictating what was cool what was uncool and now
00:03:53
you know i i did snow or because of him i did one on the other hand but
00:03:59
something was you know in general i was not cheering for
00:04:03
this guy and i was not happy when he won
00:04:07
and snorting was already my like back then no there are really funny facts are
00:04:14
facts actually about the competition helmets were mandatory it left a lot of
00:04:18
creative room to rock uh an amazing hairstyle like eighty sources right here
00:04:25
and it was really easy to cheer for someone else it was maybe that
00:04:29
was the fact that was actually one of the greatest ways to showcase
00:04:33
snow boarding in a competition in in in the history of snoring i would say that is one
00:04:38
of the most authentic where is it ever happen i wanted to talk while winning isn't everything
00:04:46
i brought along disengage because
00:04:51
i want to connect reduce emissions you wanna get wanna get to true and what i wanna get
00:04:56
into a little bit deeper now when i look at this image su challenge i think everyone
00:05:01
can agree it looks like a challenge to me i mean i doesn't look easy right and where there's
00:05:05
a challenge and that trigger something in our head we usually think of how to master that challenge
00:05:11
or some of us do more most of us hopefully i challenge how to challenge it could if
00:05:16
you wanna go through is the fastest way if you want to be the most creative
00:05:21
if you wanna do it in a team that all comes together to
00:05:25
sort of a competitive thought and i think actually competitive thoughts are in our nature
00:05:33
so where there's a competition there's winner and i say winning isn't everything so style
00:05:39
i also see something else which really puts these two things together what i'm trying to get to
00:05:44
was this one situation now when i see this image also see kind of a question
00:05:49
mark like where this is got me and maybe some of us are such as well like
00:05:53
where this is an and as soon as you ask yourself a question like that
00:05:59
some people just turn around a bit better one now they don't
00:06:02
care some people they get really interested and with interest
00:06:07
is there when there's a one situation i wanna know where this goes
00:06:12
that's when that's when it gets really interesting now when i started my competitive like
00:06:18
to snowboard now after the t. v. and after the crazy haircuts and i
00:06:23
you know i get out there the most interesting question i could ask myself are the
00:06:29
most interesting a challenge i could find in this for especially in the competitive
00:06:36
part of this for was definitely this guy this is john lived
00:06:41
in the middle of this classic back set there and
00:06:45
some of you may know some of you may not know this guy has
00:06:49
been be in like a handful of times in throughout this whole career
00:06:53
when i started he was already world champion he was already so far
00:06:57
ahead of everyone it seems so on reachable to time olympic
00:07:04
champion in half life as well so that was the most interesting question
00:07:09
i get asked myself and it that kept me going for
00:07:12
for ages and still gives me going i mean this guy motivates me
00:07:16
more than anything he it's the most interesting thing to me
00:07:21
to its most interesting charge a lot of people ask me you know and then what
00:07:27
it's it's an interesting question i this was allowed wanting to
00:07:32
that that one thing too is more important than the actual when it right so you when how does it feel what next
00:07:39
so it doesn't really work that way and i wanted to get into
00:07:42
this because the way it works at least wayward for me
00:07:46
in order to when you have to be able to take care of
00:07:50
everything that surrounds we need to to be able to prepare
00:07:54
to wouldn't leave it to be able to imagine to went to
00:07:56
be able to handle everything that comes with winning for me
00:08:03
this was real awkward but for me i have a theory when it all this mike that he always
00:08:08
rolls eyes it doesn't get it i'm trying to i'm gonna try that explains you maybe you'll get it and i'm gonna
00:08:15
try really hard now when i want something really bad and
00:08:21
i say want because when i'm one too many
00:08:23
it sounds way better when when somebody says i'm gonna wait and if
00:08:28
you say i want to win so much more powerful i think
00:08:31
because there's a story there there's there's something's gonna happen you might when you might know when
00:08:35
but there's something i wanna see behind that one situation now when
00:08:39
i said i want to win an olympic gold medal
00:08:43
i found that there's no way i'm gonna win if that's the
00:08:46
pinnacle there's no way that you can reachable if that's it
00:08:52
there's got to be something above it and now a lot of people asked me so what is it you know
00:08:58
what what what is that bob how do how can you put you know in sports cylindrical metal that's it
00:09:03
well so well i say one thing to and when i say wanting to
00:09:07
doesn't have to do i have doesn't have to do with sports
00:09:12
no i found myself something but i found so interesting better wanted
00:09:17
i don't know exactly what i want up about it but it can't be so interested and it was
00:09:23
so high up there it was high up there than an olympic gold medal and only that way
00:09:29
i could feel feel something that i really want really hard like an olympic gold medal come
00:09:36
closer to you because if you can put the limit higher than the olympic gold medal
00:09:43
you might get really calls now that's my surprise you but before the
00:09:49
olympic games all of a sudden i got really interested in art
00:09:54
and actually this picture this particular particular picture always uh where neither the
00:10:00
b. g. kept me i couldn't sleep because the facts around it
00:10:05
that is it is a handmade piece by one human be one human being you know i've i've
00:10:11
i've told you about all the olympic champions that we're so far in half pipe snow boarding
00:10:17
no this is one human being but it's something that i imagine i couldn't do in five lifetimes
00:10:23
and this excites me is interesting this is something that drives me crazy that one you maybe you
00:10:30
could do something but i can not imagine doing in one lifetime now once you put something
00:10:37
higher up like if i'm gonna win or not i'm never gonna be
00:10:41
able to think the next one elisa then when it becomes
00:10:47
comes closer to because you want something way way out of space
00:10:52
way out of your reach and that is that is how i see the theory of winning and wanted to
00:10:59
i uh i want to also shared is really really amazing quote with you that
00:11:05
it in case you didn't understand what i was trying to tell him today
00:11:09
you might because this really puts it all in one sentence
00:11:14
please read with me the will to when the desired to six
00:11:18
see the urge to create your to reach your full potential
00:11:24
these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence
00:11:29
personal excellence
