Susie Wolff recently spoke at Pendulum 2023, imparting her wisdom from her own life to the audience. She discussed how she came to be one of the most successful drivers in F1 and her journey over the years.
“There are so many opportunities. There’s so much noise around what you should be doing, what you can’t. It can sometimes be overwhelming. But, that gut feeling will always lead you on the right path.” 

Susie asserts that following your gut is more important than anything. While acknowledging that doing so may not always bring you down the easiest path, it will always bring you down the right one. Susie shows through examples from her own life why it’s so vital to keep on keeping on, despite what barriers may exist and what challenges you may face.

When discussing F1 and creating teams, Susie says, “Diversity creates performance.” Within teams, whether in sport of business, bringing people together from diverse backgrounds with different perspectives creates a melting pot of new ideas. While conflict can arise, diversity ultimately brings peak performance.

From this blog, some key takeaways are:

  1. You must have passion. Passion is bringing your best self to a team. It’s trusting yourself to follow your instincts.

  2. Trust your gut. This may not always be the simplest or easiest path, but it will lead you where you should go.

  3. Have big dreams. Oftentimes, we can get caught up in how impossible our dream seems to achieve instead of focusing on how to get there.

“You’ve got to have these big dreams. You’ve got to know where it is you want to get to. Otherwise, you become a passenger on your life journey.”
