Facing death taught me how to truly live with David Smith MBE (E215)

“Paralysis taught me how to live”This emotional conversation is an honest and vulnerable discussion about life, death and understanding our purpose.In 2010, David Smith was given a life changing diagnosis: a rare, cancerous tumour was found in his neck. A focused athlete, previously competing in karate, running and bobsled, David aimed to put all of his energy into competing in the 2012 Paralympic games as a rower; “I didn’t have time for a tumour”. But, after having surgery on the tumour, David suffered a stroke. This was the start of a new life for David.After multiple surgeries and a number of complications, David is now fully paralysed on his left side. Despite winning gold for Rowing with Team GB at the 2012 Paralympics, what really stands out is David’s appreciation for every moment, his resilience, and his deep understanding of what it means to really live. In the face of battling cancer and living with paralysis, David's unwavering commitment to his purpose and daily philosophy shines through. He shares the importance of embracing vulnerability and the preciousness of time. A total of 6 major life-threatening spinal surgeries in 13 years, 6 weeks of radiotherapy and learning to walk after each operation meant his sporting career became more about staying alive than winning medals. David shares his profound wisdom with Jake and Damian, exploring how he is attempting to come to terms with death and how he finds strength in vulnerability. We’re left with the core of David’s message: “I’m not scared of dying, I’m scared of not living.”This was recorded in front of a live audience at Happy Place Festival, there may be some background noise.

In this interview, we welcome Edwin Van De Sar. The man who went from player to CEO, who won four Eredivisie titles, four Premier League Crowns and the Champions League, among many other accolades in his career.We recorded this in a hotel room overlooking the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam, the home of Ajax Football Club. Edwin, at the time of recording, was the Chief Executive of the football club. He walked into the room and I said to him, “how are things?” The reply was a one word swear word. Immediately it was clear to us that pressure was taking its toll on this guy. We then spoke at length about the truth of what life's like at the top of a football club.We talk about the scrutiny, we talk about the criticism, the questions, the pain and the impact on his family. Of course, we also talk about his playing days. What he learned at Manchester United, what it was like in that great Ajax team. Some of the challenges he faced as a Holland International and the great players he's played with.A couple of days after the conversation, it was announced that Edwin had decided to quit as the CEO Ajax. So this now lives as the final interview that he gave as the CEO.I think that we will now listen to it with fresh ears, with an even deeper understanding of the challenges that he was under.Enjoy!Love, Jake Hosted on Acast.

Adventurer Oli France On Finding Light In The Darkest Places

Oli France has led many expeditions, guiding groups through some of the world’s most hostile destinations, from Syria to Iraq, Somalia to Siberia, Congo to Yemen. Here, he has encountered countless bleak situations. He has been caught in a 6.9 magnitude earthquake, held at gunpoint, detained for 5 days on the Afghan border and severely ill with meningitis, while facing spies, interrogations, militia groups, avalanches and more. All this, while attempting to complete intrepid journeys across the globe. What he has learned, however, is that in the bleakest places and the hardest situations we can encounter untold beauty, if we allow ourselves to find it.His experiences have helped him to develop a range of mental strategies, which he will share alongside harrowing and uplifting stories from his adventures:How can we reframe and regain control over our most ambitious goals?How can we shift dire situations into positive outcomes?How can we become the master over our restrictive perspectives?With these guiding principles, we can begin to realise that the difficulties we face need not define us or limit our aspirations. We have the power to seek the good amongst the bad, to find resilience through adversity, and to become undaunted by even the harshest setbacks. Even in the darkest places, we hold the power within us to uncover the light.Watch the full keynote here on The High Performance Circle (you can sign up for free): https://www.thehighperformancepodcast.com/all-content/oli-france-finding-light-in-the-darkest-places Hosted on Acast.

E159 - Sam Tomkins: What comes easy, doesn’t last. What lasts, doesn’t come easy

In the last of our short series, inspired by the Rugby League World Cup, we're joined by the humble, hard-working and high-performing Sam Tomkins, the captain and talisman of England’s men’s team who are aiming to win the coveted trophy later this month. In Sam Walker’s brilliant book, Captain Class, he identified that the best teams have great captains, those who play on the edge, make others better and step up at crucial moments. Sam is certainly a leader who does this and much more but, as he explained to us, this has not come easily. He was never identified as a great talent, having to pay to play at Wigan Warriors whilst holding down a full-time job as a green-keeper at a local golf course. Whilst he was there, he refused to compromise and kept his dream of representing his boyhood team alive. His willingness to do the work in the shadows, the hard, relentless grind in the toughest of sports distinguished him and prepared him for the moment when luck met opportunity and he got his shot. Sam was a central figure in Wigan’s renaissance, winning Grand Finals and Challenge Cups before deciding to stretch his horizons and test himself in New Zealand. He returned to Wigan and led them to further glory before once again, being stepping outside his comfort zone by moving to France with Catalan Dragons. Sam’s story is packed with incredible lessons, inspiring messages and insightful observations from his climb to the summit of world sport. (HP Plus subscribers can enjoy a special extended version on this episode) Listen back to the other episodes in the series;Sam Burgess: https://apple.co/3sG3g7vLindsey Burrow: https://apple.co/3TPl6RwJamie Peacock: https://apple.co/3WKhphZ- - - - -OUT NOW!

Having grown-up working class, and gradually made his way to the wealthy upper class, James explains how authenticity is key within his work, and personal, life. Finding the thing at the core of everything he does is key to Jame’s work, if he can find the core of every book the story can truly begin.

E137 - Nick Cox: Why the future IS bright at Manchester United

Nick Cox is the Head of Academy at Manchester United. He has previously been an Academy Manager at Sheffield United FC. In this episode, Nick shares with us the key to high performance - people and relationships. For Nick, high performance is about finding those small windows of alignment where you are in flow, and then when you are not in that state your time should be spent rebuilding to return to it. As Head of Academy, Nick offers insight into how to best lead and mentor children and young adults into becoming whole, well-rounded people. One key aspect that Jake, Damian and Nick discuss is how failure is crucial for children, and why their mentors or parents need to explain to them why ‘sitting on the bench’ is a positive thing. Nick discusses the importance of challenging your outlook, tackling discomfort and doing what excites you.- - - - - -Pre-order the new High Performance Daily Journal - 365 ways to become your best! smarturl.it/HPJournalWant even more from High Performance?
