The Key to Perform Out of Your Mind

 

Timothy’s Thought for Thursday

I attended a weekend beginners course in Free Diving at Deans Blue Hole, Long Island, Bahamas. Over a weekend, my son and I trained with William Trubridge, double world record holder and Jonathan Sunnex, both from New Zealand. Over that time, I learned how to hold my breath under water for 4 minutes 44 seconds and dived to a depth of 69 feet or 21 meters.

How is that possible, with no previous experience? We are so much more capable than what we think we are. Our greatest enemy is our own mind and when we learn how to switch it off, we can fulfill our potential in any context.

This is Leadership of Self. To do this, we have to dive deep into the silence, the silence between our thoughts. This is the place all desires are fulfilled, and top performance achieved. Are you ready to go there? Do you know how?

Allow me to show you the way.

  • Wow! Free diving can be pretty intense. My pastor shared a story on he almost died from it as he pushed himself to the limit.

    Anyways, it is impressive how much more we have in ourselves than we think we do. Your story made me think of something Andy Andrews (at least I think it was Andy) shared on his podcast.

    There were audience members who would be pulled onto stage and ask to hold their breath as long as they could. If they were told the time, they would often give up. Not given the time, they would hold it for much longer. It’s all a mental game.
