As part of my journey to become more successful in business and in life, I have had the pleasure of being trained by Nam Baldwin. Nam is a Peak Performance Coach and as the current Strength & Conditioning Coach to Mick Fanning (as in, 3 x world surfing champion!) I think I’m in safe hands…
One of the most life-changing lessons that Nam has taught me has been about the true power of the mind. You have about 60,000 thoughts a day, most of which are just things made up by your brain as it tries to make sense of everything it sees, hears, smells, tastes and experiences. Trouble is, if you listen to all of them, you can become your own worst enemy. Learning how to master your own mind, and influence it positively through good nutrition and physical activity, is really key to good performance, and it has changed so many things for me.
Something that Nam taught me early on in our sessions and that I have carried on with religiously is The Miracle Morning. This has become the foundation for daily success and fulfilment for me, and for so many more of Nam’s network.
The idea is to set yourself up for a great day from the second you open your eyes. With Nam’s guidance, you learn how to significantly supercharge your body’s chemistry and give yourself more energy, motivation and capacity to focus on what’s important – all done within the first ten minutes of the day! I can’t imagine how I would get things done without this significant ritual in place and it has definitely become a non-negotiable habit for me.
Nam will be appearing here as a guest blogger from time to time, but if you can’t wait until then to hear more about him you can head to his website here and check him out!
