Today’s episode goes in a slightly different direction. One my biggest shifts over the last several years has been to ask myself better questions when I’m struggling or working through particular problems in my personal life, fitness or business. Albert Einstein used to give the same end of year exam question to all his students because “the answers are always changing” – these are some of the questions that I’ve taken directly from the notes on my phone. I come back to them regularly (especially if I’m struggling or feeling demotivated in a specific area of my life)

I hope you enjoy this two-part podcast.

 

“Smart people have great answers. Genius have great questions”

– Mentor

This was a difficult episode to record and I talk about some of my own issues that I haven’t talked to previously.  I’ve had my own issues with mental health and your mess becomes your message so here’s to hovering over the ‘publish’ button for several minutes.  

“Depression is about what has happened, anxiety is about what could happen”

Do you have a mental health issue or an ‘ I have too many negative people on my life’ issue? 

Control the controllable (exercise, meditation, mindfulness, yoga etc.) 

What’s causing your issues?

“Smart people have great answers, Geniuses have great questions!”

Stay on top of it.

“Tell me what you do every day and I’ll tell you where you’ll be in a year.”

Make of list of what makes you happy and unhappy - it’s that simple.

Don’t be a f**ing victim anymore!

“If you do what is easy and your life will be hard, if do what is hard and your life will be easy.”

 Mental health is an advantage if you choose to see it that way.

There’s nothing you can call me that I haven’t already called myself already (and ten times worse).

Become stronger and it becomes your superpower!

Tom has been one of my biggest influences over the past year. After battling cancer and changing the way he saw the world; he has since gone on to become one of Dubai’s leading entrepreneurs, a successful ultra marathon runner and is constantly pushing the boundaries on his physical and mental limitations. Alongside our mutual friend Marcus Smith (Episode 141), Tom’s advice and support is one of the main reasons I was able to finish the 250km run through the Sahara Desert in April.

 

We talk everything from the mindset developed through running and nutrition for half or full marathons to the difference between real and perceived problems and the importance of the right romantic relationship for long-term success. I got so much from this interview. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed recording it.

 

 TOPICS COVERED

  • How obsession can be a positive thing. Short-term micro imbalance for long-term macro imbalance
  • Battling cancer and changing the way you see the world
  • Training and nutrition for his first ever marathon
  • How the excuses you make today become regrets you have later
  • His main tips for running an endurance event (half marathon, full marathon and ultras)
  • The difference between a real problem and perceived problems.

I broke with the traditional format to go in whatever direction worked best, we talked everything from basic fitness principles, keto diet, tinder hookups and not sh*aging your clients or people you work with.
