Unlike team sports where he felt mediocre, skateboarding allowed him to continuously improve and progress. It provided him with a psychological boost and a feeling of accomplishment that he couldn't find in other areas of his life.

      Tony Hawk's success in skateboarding was attributed to his willingness to step out of his comfort zone and explore new techniques. He wasn't afraid of getting hurt along the way and accepted it as part of the learning process. Unlike many of his peers, he was open to trying tricks and board manipulation that weren't comfortable or popular. He dedicated countless hours to practicing and mastering his skills, often repeating a single trick thousands of times. This commitment and fearlessness allowed him to develop a deep trick repertoire and perform them consistently in the most challenging circumstances.

Throughout this time, he faced various injuries and setbacks, but he persevered in his pursuit.

Hawk took the initiative to email Activision, the game developers, to suggest including the 900 trick in the game, showcasing his proactive nature. He also made a strategic decision to collaborate with Activision over another group because he believed their game would be more accessible and intuitive for non-skaters. Hawk's success in skateboarding and business was greatly influenced by the support and legacy of his late father, who played a significant role in keeping skateboarding alive during challenging times.

    Moment 165: This Exercise Enhances Mood, Memory & Concentration: David Raichlen
    In this moment, leading professor of evolutionary biology, David Raichlen discusses how to boost the brain benefits that come from exercise. Most people know that exercise can improve cognitive function, but don’t realise that different sort of exercise, like cardio or strength training, can provide different types of neurological benefits. David says that whilst all exercise is beneficial to the brain, research shows that the best sort of physical activity is a combination of physical and cognitive challenges. This helps the brain function as it copies how humans evolved to find food and survive. So this could mean that the next time you go for a run, choose the great outdoors over the treadmill and try different routes you haven’t taken before.

    Moment 163: Happiness Expert Reveals The One Type Of Person You Should NEVER Date
    In this moment, happiness scientist and expert, Arthur C Brooks, discusses what people get wrong in their search for romantic happiness. According to Arthur, the biggest mistake people make when searching for their romantic partner is looking for an exact copy of themself. This is one of the reasons that dating apps are so unsuccessful, as their dating profile will rigidly select people with the same preferences as them, allowing no surprises and potential to experience different qualities. Instead, people are better off looking for someone who complements and completes them and their qualities. This is why many happy marriages will be between people with different qualities, such as an introvert and an extrovert. These sorts of relationships celebrated their difference rather than partners trying to change each other to be more like them, as Arthur says that this is a killer of relationships Listen to the full episode here - Apple- https://g2ul0.app.link/FTXkeOG5PJb Spotify- https://g2ul0.app.link/8uB3oAL5PJb Watch the Episodes On Youtube - https://www.youtube.com/c/%20TheDiaryOfACEO/videos Arthur C Brooks: https://arthurbrooks.com/ Learn more about your ad choices.

    The Conformity Hazard - Episode 007 - Unleashing the Power of Your Mindset - How to Achieve Success Against All Odds - Part 1

    In this episode of The Conformity Hazard, we delve deep into the topic of mindset and its profound influence on achieving happiness, fulfillment, and success in life. Over the course of this and the next two episodes, we explore stories of individuals facing common challenges related to negative mindsets and how a growth-oriented perspective can transform lives.

    In today's world, many people carry a negative mindset, constantly seeking fulfillment in life but never quite finding it. They may believe that they are destined to never achieve what they truly desire. However, what they fail to realize is that their very outlook on life and mindset is what holds them back from exceeding their own expectations.

    We share stories of individuals who experienced setbacks due to fear, imposter syndrome, and limiting beliefs. Jessica, an aspiring entrepreneur, struggled with repeated failures until she confronted her self-sabotage patterns and built self-confidence. Michael, an employee aiming for promotion, learned to advocate for his achievements and eventually became the head of the IT department. Alexis, a successful lawyer with a dream of becoming a writer, faced panic attacks when faced with the prospect of partnership, but she overcame her fear and pursued her passion.

    The common thread among these stories is the power of a growth mindset. Embracing the belief in continuous development and resilience, these individuals transformed setbacks into stepping-stones and navigated life's challenges with determination. The growth mindset became the catalyst for their personal evolution and empowerment.

    By empowering themselves with a growth mindset, they shattered the barriers of limiting beliefs and transcended the ordinary to embrace the extraordinary. The transformational journey not only impacted their lives but also inspired others around them, creating a ripple effect of positive change.

    In the pursuit of excellence, a growth-oriented perspective allows one to continuously evolve and improve. No longer confined by the boundaries of self-imposed limitations, individuals can explore new horizons and achieve remarkable things.

    As the awareness of the power of a positive, growth-oriented mindset dawns upon you, you too can embark on a transformative journey. Armed with resilience and perseverance, you can navigate the complexities of life, transforming setbacks into stepping-stones and creating a harmonious symphony of determination and dedication.

    The world awaits your triumphant symphony of personal evolution and empowerment. Awaken the power of mindset within you and redefine the paradigm of your success. With a growth mindset, there are no limits to what you can accomplish.

    Join us for the next two episodes as we continue to explore the profound impact of mindset on human potential and personal growth.
