Jeremy Rollestonabout this book: "I knew it would soon be over. These moments only occur once every four years - if you're lucky, and if everything goes according to plan. Here I am again ... But the next thing I know ... my nightmare begins, and my dream shatters and slides down the track with me ..."
'A Life That Counts' emanated from my devastating crash in the two-man bobsleigh at the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. As I worked through my disappointment and answered the inevitable questions from everybody, I realised that I did have a story to share. A story not just of the Vancouver Olympics but one that encompassed my whole sporting journey. A story of successes and failures; of highs and lows; of moments of elation but also of moments of heartbreak. A story to encourage readers to realise that there is a big difference between disappointment and regret. A story to inspire readers to dare to dream and follow their dreams, regardless of the outcome.
So join me (a two-time Olympian) as I take you behind the scenes in my own life as well as with ten other remarkable and successful Australians (Olympic and World champions, Australians of the Year) including James Tomkins, Gai Waterhouse, Dick Smith, Louise Sauvage, Lydia Lassila, Matthew Burke, Matt Shirvington, Michael Milton, Jason Stevens and Alexandra Croak, all of whom have equally followed their dreams. Inside the book you'll find stories, lessons, secrets, tools, strategies, real-life examples, psychology and motivation that you can then use yourself in your everyday life.
Practical, thought-provoking and challenging, 'A Life That Counts' celebrates the "want to's", the "choose to's", the "I can't wait to's" and the "I dream of's" in your own life. My hope is that you'll come away from reading this book with an exciting vision of your potential and future. But more than that, I trust that you'll come away equipped with the knowledge, strategies, tools and examples to be able to put this inspiration into practice successfully.
'A Life That Counts' will inspire you to chase your dreams and be all you can be; equip you to chart a course to personal and professional achievement, and motivate you to live an incredible, purposeful and impactful life.
