“I’m 100% a fan of failure because at least if you’re failing, you’re trying.” — Scott Hamilton

In the age of participation trophies, competition is seen as a negative thing. Scott Hamilton, Olympic champion, broadcaster and best-selling author, strongly disagrees and feels that competition is essential to achieving lasting success. In this episode, Brian interviews Scott to discuss the importance of competition and Scott’s new book, “Finish First: Winning Changes Everything.” Scott explains why failure is essential to achieving success in life and business, how to break the pattern of losing and achieve your goals, and the key question to ask yourself that’ll lead you to your true purpose. He also offers motivation and encouragement to help you take that important first step after experiencing a setback or failure.
