Olympian Kelly Holmes On Success

Olympian Kelly Holmes On Success


In this video, watch double Olympic Champion and motivational speaker, Dame Kelly Holmes, speak on success. She believes that having aspirations, dreams, and a goal is key to being positive about yourself and having a focal point for something to go for in life. You can as a person find the will and strength if you want something in your life. She broke down her goal into small stages and found that it was easier to climb small little hills rather than a large mountain all at once.

The Athens Olympic Games was the pinnacle of a long but frustrating international athletics career for Kelly Holmes. Her Double Olympic Gold triumph changed her life forever and fulfilled her second childhood dream of becoming an Olympic Champion. Her first dream was joining the British Army which she realised at the age of 17; she was later recognised for her services to the Military when she received her MBE after 9 years’ service. Kelly turned her back on athletics to forge a successful career and become a PTI in the British Army. However, she was inspired to return to the track in 1992, watching the Barcelona Olympic Games from her barracks room on camp, when she was surprised to see a former junior rival line up in the women’s 1500m.
