142 - Know Your WHY with Dr Jeffrey Tho

To achieve your goals, you must take action, and you'll only take action when you truly understand your WHY. Dr Jeffrey Tho is a two time Commonwealth Games athlete, Dentist, Business Owner and Coach. He helps people reach their goals by assisting them to get clarity around their WHY. 

On this podcast episode we discuss:

  • Balancing his training and competition with his social life and dental studies
  • Benefits of discipline and hard work and how this translates from sport to business

"Natural talent will only take you so far, and those that make it to the top are the ones who never gave up. Success comes when you don't quit"

  • Success in business comes to those who never quit. 
  • Analysing what works and make changes if you're not getting the results you want, but don't quit. 
  • Book: START WITH WHY by Simon Sinek.
  • Belief systems 
  • Knowledge not put to use is a waste of time. 

"Don't let perfection get in the way of progress."

Getting Started With Goals 

First, you need to understand yourself (your mindset) and work out what is your limiting beliefs. 

SIDE NOTE: A belief is just a neural connection from one event to another. It's your way of connecting stories.

If you say, you're going to lose 10kg you need to ask WHY. There must be an emotional connection. Just saying so you can fit into a shirt or pair of pants is superficial. What will fitting into that short or pants make you feel? That's the emotion. 

Monday Morning Tip

Think about the person you want to become. Can you picture this person in your mind? 

  • How do they speak?
  • How do they act?
  • What daily actions do they take? 
  • How do they start their Monday morning? 

"Today is not just another day."
