Bendigo Senior Secondary College students got an extra boost of motivation during class on Monday.
The Specialist Sports program hosted world-renowned motivator Mark Dobson (or Dobbo, as he’s known by most) who has worked with elite sports stars, helped grow international businesses and inspired educators and students alike.
Mr Dobson encouraged BSSC sports students to think about the actions they could put into place to succeed in both school and sport.
He asked students: “What will you do every day, every week, every month, to ensure you have the best chance of success?”
He also stressed the importance of having a life outside of sport.
“You have to be socially rounded, academically rounded, and sport rounded to have the ultimate success,” he said.
“Most importantly, in life, as in sport, you have to recognise when the ball is being thrown to you. Don’t let opportunities to ask questions and put yourself ‘out there’ pass you by.”
