WARNING: This is an uplifting episode that will make you immediately want to achieve more. If you love wallowing in misery and negativity, do not press play. 

Dr Jeffrey Tho is a Melbourne based dentist and dental business coach who represented Australia at the 2010 and 2014 Commonwealth Games in Delhi and Glasgow. This episode could not have been better-timed with all that is happening in the world right now concerning the Coronavirus.  

Today we discuss:

  • What it's like to be a Commonwealth Games athlete
  • High performance and dedication to a goal
  • The correlation between success in sport and life
  • Even with hard work, there are no guarantees of success 
  • The difference between results and processes
  • The Badminton Podcast - Jasmine Kouch (Podiatrist) - Foot For Though, Ep:023

"As an athlete, you get so used to hard work that you assume everything you do in the future will take the same effort."

You need to be results-driven, but process focused

Process focused means concentrating on the things that are going to give you the results, it's the day to day things you must do each day to get the desired result.

In a game each shot will win the point, each point will win the set, each set will win the match, and each match will win the competition. 

Results are essential because you need to know where you're going, but if you're thinking about the results while you're playing a game (or treating a patient), you're not thinking about the game plan, the activities you need to do to make it a successful outcome. 

Snapping Yourself Out of A Rut - Finding a Trigger

We need to recognise the patterns of when we're falling into a negative situation or short term rut. 

In sport, this is why even the best athletes have a coach. The coach will tell them precisely what to do, they can see things the athlete cannot see, but when you're your coach, you need to know when this is happening and recognise it early. 

Train Certain Triggers

You can train yourself to have triggers when you need them.

You need to do a specific physical movement that you wouldn't normally do and then add a word, and attached to that word a feeling or emotion.

You need to develop your own, and it could be as simple as taking a 10-minute walk during the day. 

Changing The Lens 

The trigger doesn't need to be that long or complicated; it's just about bringing up and associating a feeling or thought when you need them. 

For example, if you were having a consultation with an annoying patient, but that morning someone gave you a million dollars, you wouldn't care, and this patient would not affect you at all because you're seeing the problem through a different lens.

It's really just about your perspective.
