    BITESIZE #72 | Jo Konta: Pain x resistance = suffering

    BITESIZE #72 | Jo Konta: Pain x resistance = suffering

    This week’s special bitesize clip features the engaging and illuminating Jo Konta, former British No.1 women’s tennis player who won four singles titles, reached the semifinals of Wimbledon and rose to a world ranking of number 4. 
    In this powerful clip we spoke about the loneliness of pursuing a path of excellence. The harsh, unforgiving spotlight of constant scrutiny and the struggle to maintain equilibrium and balance whilst engaged in the struggle to perform.
     
    Jo shared with us a simple equation which helped re-ignite her passion and led to a significant step change in her performance…Pain x Resistance = Struggle
     
    The more resistance to a challenge, the greater the struggle. Jo learned that when she began reducing her resistance and started seeing the benefits - what it was teaching her - the struggle dissolved.

    E127 - Dame Kelly Holmes (Re-Release): Be kind - everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

    E127 - Dame Kelly Holmes (Re-Release): Be kind - everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

    In the week that Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes has bravely revealed she is gay, Jake & Damian revisit the conversation we recorded with Kelly before our podcast journey had even begun, and at a time Kelly has now admitted she was in a very tough place.
    Her story of Olympic golds, doubt, depression, self-harm, and injury is one you need to hear and is just remarkable.

High Performance Podcast, mind set is key to the journey.

I came across the podcast purely by chance and I’ve been hooked ever since. I’ve totally enjoyed listening to entrepreneurs, Athletes, Actors and everyday people tell their stories on how high performance is key to their drive, ambition and self development.
I’ve loved every episode and have started learning more about myself than I have over the last 63 years of my life.

You have to share this with your friends and family it’s a life changing podcast.

Hands Down One of my Top Podcasts

I love this podcast. It’s introduced me to tons of athletes, business professionals and more people I’ve never heard of. And I’ve taken away more lessons than I can count to apply to my own life. I’d recommend a listen to anyone who wants to take a step forward and grow in any area of their life.
