Today on the show we’re talking with professional racecar driver, Josef Newgarden. Josef has won the Indie series twice, he has been racing since he was a kid, and he didn’t finish high school or college!
We talk about how nothing can hold you back, including being an introvert. Josef had to step out of his comfort zone, and interact with the team in order to create chemistry, to work together better on race day! Josef also lost his first sponsor he ever had, he thought that was the end of his season, but another company stepped in and believed in what Josef could do. He went on to win the championship that year.
Having passion for what you do, becoming obsessed with beating the competition, not letting failures become deterrents, but using them to fuel your passion; that is what Josef brings to the table in today’s interview, and everyday he races.
Pushing yourself, believing in yourself, and stepping out of your comfort zone will get you to new heights you didn’t think were possible.
