When picking my career I would be lying if I said that the desire to succeed is enough. There are many things that you have to give up, in order to achieve your goals.
In my youth that would be hanging out with my friends and lately its spending time with my family, my weekends and other activities we take for granted.
Despite all everything I had to surrender I still preferred ski jumping. At the age of 14, I decided to really get serious and start working hard on my goals. Thanks to that I am now doing it professionally for more than 10 years.
I started ski jumping around the time when Rok Benkovič became a world champion. I wanted to be like him, achieve as much as I can and eventually be a world champion. Five years ago, in Nizhny Tagil, I have felt and proven that I can achieve something great. I ended up in 7th and 4th spot.
It was hard at first and didn't go according to my desires and wishes, but I did not give up. Besides Nizhny Tagil in 2015 I ended up in 4th spot two years later in Pyeongchang-gun in South Korea.
Today I can say with guarantee that with hard work and determination, you can achieve your goals.
