Success is a decision, so I like to take matters into my own hands – Jacob B. Bączek
World Championships gold medalist, mental coach and coach of the national volleyball team Stéphane Antiga, creator or co-creator of several brands, best-selling author and motivational speaker. This is the shortest possible way to introduce Jakub B. The doughnut, which will be heard as early as 12. February at the Inspiration Day Mobile Trends Conference 2022. Today we present a short and factual interview in which he talks about his "recipe for success" and how coaching the national volleyball team has influenced his work.
If you could give others just one tip on how to achieve success, what would it sound like?
In my opinion, the shortest and surest way to achieve success is… hard work. Simply! I wouldn't count on some magical and miraculous methods or acquaintances or a fluke.
Success is a decision, so I like to take matters into my own hands.
Did being a coach of volleyball players in any particular way enrich your experience, teach you something new?
Immediately after the phone calls from journalists and potential clients rang out, I thought that after all, a week ago I was the same man, but still without the World Championship gold medal. So I feel that I have not changed, but my image in the eyes of others has changed. I already knew beforehand that my mental training methods are very effective. Now it is probably believed by several million more people 🙂
You will give a lecture at the Mobile Trends Conference 2022. What will your speech be about?
The keynote of my speech is "Dreams don't come true"… This may seem rather strange at first glance, but it won't be the only surprise at my lecture. Get ready for a lot of excitement 🙂
