A former Olympian shares advice for high-achievers navigating career and life transitions. After achieving a major accomplishment or realizing a lifelong dream, many high-performing individuals struggle to open a new chapter in life with the same confidence and enthusiasm that fueled their previous successes. In Personal Next, former Olympic athlete Melinda Harrison examines the difficulties people may face after reaching what seemed to be the height of their careers. Through interviews with more than 100 elite athletes and other high-achievers who navigated a major life transition, Harrison distills nine key PRACTICES that support a successful pivot to a new arena. Harrison describes the arc of transition common to all high-performers, including the ascent to peak achievement, the messy middle of change, and the move toward new goals, challenges, and rewards. Woven throughout the book are stories from elite athletes and high achievers, including Harrison's own. Life after the pinnacle of success doesn't have to be all downhill. If you are struggling to find your feet after coming off a personal best, reading this book will help you to prepare for success in your personal next.
