Believe to Achieve with Sergio Tigera

Scientists said it was humanly impossible, but on May 5th, 1954, Roger Bannister broke the four-minute mile. He didn’t even let the “truth” get in his way toward his ambitions, and he paints a vivid picture of how our beliefs trump our abilities. Our abilities may illustrate to us what we can do now, but our beliefs dictate our potential. 

In this podcast, Sergio will illustrate three key points that help audiences break through personal barriers just like Roger Bannister did. He covers Self-talk and how we can serve as our greatest influencer. What we believe about ourselves, whether we say it aloud in conversations or quietly in our head, will change our behavior and outcomes. 

Goals may be the buzz-phrase for achievers, but Habits are the truepredictors of our success. It doesn’t matter where we are today, but rather how we can use our time now to reach our goals tomorrow. 

And finally, our attitudes dictate the way we approach life. Defeatism can keep us in the mire of our worst days. But if we take the path of boldness, we can carry ourselves through tough times and life-changing challenges.
