SENNA KNEW WINNING ISN’T EVERYTHING

Senna loved winning too, of course: he was obsessed by it as champions are. But what separates him is that he came to realise there was more to life – and that is why people are making films about him today. He had the visionary mystique to know in a world of plenty you do not have to have ‘have-nots’ to have ‘haves’.

His trainer Josef Leberer told me: “During my first year with Ayrton we were driving through Sao Paulo when we saw a favela and I asked how he felt when he saw these people. He said it was very hard for him and it hurt a lot, but that you have to be powerful to effect any real change and he was not there yet.

“What is success? 
To laugh often and much; 
To win the respect of intelligent people 
and the affection of children; 
To earn the appreciation of honest critics 
and endure the betrayal of false friends; 
To appreciate the beauty; 
To find the best in others; 
To leave the world a bit better, whether by 
a healthy child, a garden patch 
Or a redeemed social condition; 
To know even one life has breathed 
easier because you have lived; 
This is to have succeeded.” 
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882)

from Craig’s very first published book, Handbook to Survive The Nineties ( and Life 1993)

“Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.”

Like Ayrton Senna (and you don’t necessarily have to be “powerful, famous or influential” to do it), YOU too can make a difference in the world… and even perhaps be a “champion of hope” to others
