In this episode of The Process of Success podcast, I sat down with New South Welshman turned Victorian Chris Tremain, who was recently voted the Sheffield Shield Player of the Year after an outstanding season that saw him take 51 wickets from 10 matches at an amazing average of 21.
Chris is a country boy who loves to get out into nature and in the past few years has turned into one of Australia’s premier fast-bowlers. Like most successful athletes and most of the guests we’ve had on our show so far, he hasn’t had it all his own way though.
“When someone says, just do what you do best, you sort of have to think, well what is it that I do best? And it’s even a matter of perception….I guess the difference between them (the world’s best players) and the rest of us is that they know exactly what they do well. “
