My Highlights | Personally my kids make me a proud dad every day. Professionally I am so happy with the work my Foundation (The Shane Warne Foundation) has done for sick and under privileged children,
In terms of cricket, my most favourite moment is walking out on Sydney cricket ground playing my first ever test match, looking up at the scoreboard and seeing it say ‘congratulations Shane Warne you are the 350th Test Cricketer to play for Australia. What a surreal moment!
The Difference Between Good And Great | People who are great at what they do never give up! They keep working hard and keep focused on what their goals are!
A Key Talent | Never give up, no matter what. Always have a positive mindset and keep going until you get there.
Resources I Use To Stay Inspired | My kids and my family are always keeping me grounded and growing as a parent – I am inspired by seeing my kids grow up in to young men and women! Keeping good people around you is important, such as my good friend Michael Clarke.
My Future Dreams And Ambitions | I’ve got some ideas for some great new projects for the Cricketing world (top secret haha) and I would like to continue to improve my poker and golf games as these are also big passions of mine!
I Am Inspired By | No role models but in my view the greatest sportsman ever is Mohammad Ali.
