Olympic athletes and financial planning principles by Station Financial

It's all about setting your goals!

What can we learn from the Olympic athletes? Quite a lot! By Station Financial, New Forest independent financial advisers 


What can we learn from 3 Olympic stars?

There are a few young people who have hit the headlines following their participation in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

We thought we’d consider what we can learn from some of these young athletes and how we can apply these principles to our financial lives.

So here are three lessons from three young sporting stars:

You can start young – Sky Brown, Skateboarder

At just 13 years old, Sky Brown is the youngest summer Olympian. She began skateboarding at the tender age of 3-years-old and has never looked back.  Sky believes that anyone can achieve anything they want, which is a great attitude.

When it comes to your finances, it’s great to start early. The sooner you start saving, investing, or contributing to a pension, the more you will accrue over the years.

You may only to be able to start with a little bit at first, but as Tesco reminds us, ‘every little helps’.

You can achieve your goals – Tom Daley, Diver

Back in 2005 Tom Daley told the BBC, "I want to get to the Olympics and win a gold medal", which just goes to show that you can achieve your goals with some focus, hard work and training.

It’s always inspiring to meet people with a ‘can do’ attitude who go on to achieve their ambitious goals. If you have ambitious goals and need help with the financial aspects, then we can help.swimmers in pool

Whether it’s learning about investment portfolios, setting up a trust for your children/ grandchildren or planning for a comfortable retirement, our independent financial advisers are experts in a wide range of financial products and can assist you in achieving your financial goals.

You can speak up – Simone Biles, Gymnast

With a lot of pressure on her, Simone Biles was struggling both physically and mentally and so made the brave and wise decision to speak up and pull out of an event at this year’s Olympic Games.

It can be easy to let other people’s expectations of us dictate what we do, but sometimes it is good to speak up for what you know is best for you.

At Station Financial we offer personal consultations to get to know you and your financial needs and always listen to what it is you need from us to help you get to where you want to go.

Your initial consultation comes with absolutely no obligations, and you are free to ask as many questions as you like.

So, let’s remember 3 things from these young athletes:

  • It’s never too early to start something
  • If you put your mind to it and train well, you can achieve your goals
  • Don’t feel pressure to do what you know is not good for you.

We hope you enjoy the rest of the Olympic Games, and remember, if you would like to get started on flexing your financial muscles, then please do call us on 01425 611666 and talk through your initial enquiry with Gill, or send an email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
