Principle #4: Mindset

Will Durant famously summed up a quote by Aristotle, “You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.” There’s no denying that our habits are incredibly powerful, however, in order to change them I believe that we need to address the underlying belief.  If we are able to change the underlying belief, then…… Continue reading Principle #4: Mindset

Principle #2: Sleep

It seems that regardless of how much sleep we get, we always want more!  Sleep affects everything to do with our body and mind, yet my assumption is that the majority of people neglect it or don’t fully understand the impact of getting a good night’s rest.  In the past, only sleeping for 4-5 hours a night and working 80-hour weeks…… Continue reading Principle #2: Sleep

Outside of our health, I believe the opposite to be true;…… Continue reading 6 Ways to improve your weaknesses

Whilst this may be motivating, we should primarily ensure that each workout has a purpose, and that purpose should move us closer toward our fitness goals.  When…… Continue reading Five ways to work out with intention

Preparing for the unknown

A form of adversity could be writing an exam, competing, or facing an unexpected challenge that life has thrown our way; regardless of adversity’s form, it’s impossible to control the outcome; what we can control, however, is our effort.  Let’s use golf as an example. When a golfer plays a round of golf, they’re testing themselves and…… Continue reading Preparing for the unknown

The Goldilocks Rule

“The Goldilocks Rule states that humans experience peak motivation when working on tasks that are right on the edge of their current abilities. Not too hard. Not too easy. Just right.” – James Clear The key is to be ‘in the zone’ and fully immersed in an activity. Where we make small improvements over time, and the challenge keeps us fully engaged. …… Continue reading The Goldilocks Rule
