This week's episode from our vault, features Richard ‘Richie’ McCaw, former New Zealand Rugby Union player and 2-time world cup winning captain of the All Blacks. From being approached at school about one day playing for the New Zealand Rugby team to then being highlighted as an All Black Great, Richie makes it really clear that hard work, perseverance, and dedication is what helped him transform this opportunity into a reality.
“You do need the talent, there is no doubt on that. But a lot is attributed to instinct, perseverance, work ethics – a healthy mind set. You’ve got to have the mindset to put in the hard yards and there is no substitute for hard work! It’s not just hard work though its being smart. You need to understand the whole game and a range of things to help you perform.” – Richie McCaw
