What if your job gave you this sense of achievement?


In the video below Prof Tim Noakes superb TED Talk explains the importance of the right Mindset (and of getting the right coach) if you want to achieve anything.

He explains how Roger Bannister became the first person in history to break the four minute mile even though there were better athletes around at the time.

Often we’d like to achieve something via the work we do, but most think of that as a pipe dream. If you are dissatisfied with your job at the moment it may well be down to the way you are thinking about it. However, if you hate it and want to find a new job or career – one that you’d be excited about every morning, that would give you a sense of fulfillment and purpose, read my f.ree eBook ‘Do You Hate Your Job?‘ before you do anything else.

You can get a copy of it simply by leaving your details here.




PS: In the book you’ll also find details about my own ‘Change Your Mindset, Change Your Life‘ 90 Day Program which goes ‘Live’ in another few days.

Is it really all in the mind?


I was listening to Roger Bannister on the radio the other day. For anyone that doesn’t know him – he was the first person to break the 4 minute mile! In History!

Doctors, scientists, coaches and other runners of the time said it couldn’t be done, that it was humanly impossible to run that fast for that long. They were all wrong.

What I didn’t know about him was he wanted more than anything else to be a doctor, specifically a neurologist. He wanted to understand the mind.

After his running career he had a long career in this area and subsequently claimed that:

Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, a vision.

And he never thought of himself as anything special, stating:

I came from such a simple origin, without any great privilege, and I would say I also wanted to make a mark.

So the most important aspect of any achievement is a person’s Mindset. And like training your body for a race training your Mindset takes commitment and work.

Are you prepared to do that to achieve your dream?
