Bring your Goals to Life
Achieving the Top 1%
Eric Shanteau set a goal of becoming an Olympic swimmer at the age of 10. After narrowly missing the 2004 games, he qualified in 2008, only to discover he had cancer, and delayed his treatment in order to compete. He achieved his dream by winning a gold medal at the 2012 games as part of the medley relay team. Ranked in the top 1% of swimmers in the world from 2008 to 2012, Shanteau explains how to deal with change, what do when things are out of your control and how to persevere no matter what the odds. Shanteau challenges audiences to reach for their dreams not just by setting goals, but by making a plan to achieve those goals. He explains how learning to fail helps to achieve ultimate success and that visualization is an important process along the road to achieving the future you want.
