A psychological Indiana Jones, Dr Jo Lukins has spent over 25 years working inside the minds of elite performers. Elite athletes know how to achieve outstanding results. Now excellence is within the reach for every person, everywhere. Knowing how to embrace the suck is a key tool for your success. This module is a blueprint for elite level thinking. For most people facing a challenge, their mind will give up long before their capabilities end. This module will teach you the key mental strategies for learning how to be comfortable when uncomfortable. If you are unable to push through the tough times, you will give up more easily, not achieve to your potential, and at some level will know you are not reaching your capabilities. If you are happy with where you are at, then you don’t need this skill. If you want to be better, then it’s a skill to develop. This module acknowledges that to reach your potential you must push yourself beyond the point of discomfort and into the space where you can become stronger, fitter or mentally tougher. Those strategies are within your reach.
Pushing yourself to your physical limits is not as hard as the battles that some people face every day. Knowing the skills to keep us mentally strong is important for all of us and I’m really glad Dr Jo has written this book. My journey to Race Across America has tested me physically and mentally and I hope you too can learn from the lessons in The Elite. Giddy up!
