Thousands of elite athletes are converging on London ready to take part in the world’s greatest sporting event, the Olympic Games. They have trained for years to be the best in their field and achieve their ultimate goal.

But what does excellence mean to you? What goals are you working towards and do you have the skills and strategies to get there?

Olympians use a range of techniques and behaviours to be the best, constantly evaluating and fine-tuning their plans themselves and, crucially, with the help of others who are specialists in their fields.

Your goal may not be to run faster than Usain Bolt or beat Chris Hoy in the cycling, but striving for excellence like an Olympian will always ensure you are the best you can be.
