Jim Harshaw is a TEDx Speaker, performance coach, former Division I All American wrestler and former Division I head coach. It took him 16 years to become an All American and he failed many times, often not just with a bruised ego but blood on his face. At age 26, he found myself as the youngest Division I head coach in the country.
He has spent his life surrounded by elite performers – Olympians, CEOs, and millionaires. They’ve all struggled and failed on their way to success. His mission is help people find success through the many adventures they have had before.
- the many variables to winning and losing, and what is within your control (4)
- "You start with the end in mind, you start with that goal, you start with that outcome that you want and you reverse engineer the process. But at some point you don't control the end outcome. You just control the process you control the things that you do."
- discussing system, process and framework
- the people around you who influence success, who do you bring in?
- talking about accountability, values, goals, discipline, toughness and a field of excellence,
- getting back on track when the wheels are falling off in life and work, having been an Olympic hopeful - how single minded focus of an elite athlete does not work in the real world
- bringing accountability into our lives and lessons from our mutual friend quadruple Olympian Ruben Gonzalez
- taking the hard road rather the path of least resistance, why men and humans often shy away from challenge
- how commitment helps you to manage the resistance to what you are trying to do
"One..one year I lost in the it was a national championships, and I lost. And I remember watching all of the champions get marched out and I prayed in front of about 20,000 people that year. And I'm sitting in the stands thinking, I'm supposed to be out there. And I had tears in my eyes thinking like, this doesn't happen again. This failure doesn't happen again. I will be out there next year. And I went back to my hotel room and I wrote down I captured that pain, because I wanted to keep that pain."
- talking about journaling, pain and visualisation techniques to maintain the dream
- talking about the mental anguish that came from failure. How it is perspective, data. It's learning information.
- talking about the hedonic treadmill - the state of always wanting more, the research shows that you're not going to be happier because you make more money. There's a certain point, money does buy happiness, after that it doesn't. The research shows the happiest people had the most meaningful relationships in their lives. That's where happiness comes from.
" So many people are afraid to, to charge for the service that they offer and the good that they bring to the world"
