In this short episode, Alex expands on the concept of perseverance and resilience. In episode #74 of the podcast, Alex spoke with Yoshi Muroya, the 2016 Red Bull Air Race World Champion. During that conversation, Yoshi explain how difficult it was to obtain the first sponsorship for and aerobatic aircraft in Japan. The had been no previous reference to airshows and Yoshi was attempting to start the ball rolling, but couldn't afford to operate the aircraft on his own.
After more than 2000 rejections, he managed to land a sponsor, which later developed into the Red Bull Air Race in the Far East. The tenacity required to hear so many no's and still try again the next day is amazing. We don't often realise how much effort is required to achieve some of our lofty goals.
If you have great ambitions for your life, you need to dig really deep. You will need a lot of perseverance, tenacity, skill and a good dose of luck too. I wish you all the best!
