Why "success" doesn't mean "happiness" with Jonny Wilkinson

Today I am thrilled to be joined by Jonny Wilkinson, a world leading sportsman, author, thought leader and podcast host. You may know him for securing England's Rugby World Cup glory in 2003. Jonny inspired millions and millions of young men in particular, and he was rightfully awarded many accolades, including BBC Sports Personality of the Year, a MBE, an OBE and the holder of the Rugby World Cup Points record.

Jonny was the walking poster child of success, but courageously since then he has opened up about how the sparkling lights of those years were a facade in some ways hiding his troublesome mental health. And behind the scenes he suffered from perfectionism. He's been on an inspirational road to recovery and dived into the depths of personal transformation, spirituality and redefining his understanding of human potential and performance.
