On today’s episode, we’re joined by Jamie Peacock MBE, former Rugby League player, motivational speaker and mentor. During his career, he played for the Leeds Rhinos, the Bradford Bulls, captained Great Britain and England at international level, and that’s just a handful of his achievements. In 2011, he was awarded an MBE for services to the game.
From the get-go, Jamie’s motivation shines through. He explains the route he had to take to break through into the first team, and how this was as much to do with his mindset and self-discipline, as his rugby skill – and sometimes even more so. Jamie’s dedication is no doubt a large factor in his continued success, on, and off the pitch.
Now an accomplished motivational speaker and mentor, Jamie’s career and life experience has enabled him to share his knowledge with others, with the focus on making them better. The leadership fundamentals he gained during his time as a captain and team member, and the challenges he faced, have allowed him to build a successful empire, all based around helping others.
In his own words, Jamie overcame a lack of natural “sporting” talent and became one of England’s best captains. His achievements speak volumes and his infectious energy and drive makes him a true pleasure to listen to. The overarching message is to BELIEVE – believe in yourself, play to your strengths, listen and learn from those around you, practice self-discipline, and be patient.
