Best-selling author and keynote speaker, Jon Gordon shares his favourite piece of advice.
These meaningful words are from Dr. James Gills, the only person on the planet to complete 6 Double Iron Man Triathlons within the 36-hour maximum time frame, and completed 5 Hawaii Ironman Triathlon World Championships.
“When he was asked how he did it, he said, ‘I’ve learned to talk to myself instead of listening to myself.’
He added: ‘If I listen to myself, I hear all the negative, all the fear. When I talk to myself, I can feed myself with the words and the encouragement that I need to keep on moving forward.’”
