They Did You Can




Lessons from high achievers showing how ordinary people achieve extraordinary things.

Despite being full of interviews and anecdotes from some of the world’s leading sports men and women, this book is as much about sport as Baywatch was about lifeguard techniques and Britain’s Got Talent is about British people having talent. It is, above all, a book about what human beings can do if they put their mind to it. And when I say human beings, I mean you. This is a book for young people about what it takes to achieve something, anything, in any walk of life and how, when you scratch the surface of any high achiever, you find the same sorry collection of anxieties, fears, insecurities and self-doubt that the rest of us experience daily. The difference is that high achievers don’t let the negative thoughts win.
