Clinical psychologist with a Ph.D. in sports, Pierre Nel says Rassie Erasmus had a vision for the team and everything fell into place.

As the country continues to celebrate the victory by the Springboks in the Rugby world cup, what lessons can the country learn from the team?

Clinical psychologist with a Ph.D. in sports, Pierre Nel says having a good reputation goes a long way in building the nations.

Nel say the Springboks coach Rassie Erasmus had a very clear vision and that is how the team managed to succeed in the tournament.

Sport is about achieving a certain goal and that is what Rassie pushed from the start. He got the guys in believing that the vision is to win the world cup and everything else had to fall in place.

Nel says the nation needs people with credibility.

To bring change in South Africa we need people with a great reputation to be in leadership positions then things are going to change.

Pierre Nel, Clinical Psychologist with a PHD in Sports

We need small victories if a person makes a promise we want to see something happen. People need to speak less and do more.
