Show Notes

Do you ever ask yourself “Why does this happen to me?!” or tell yourself “I’m so unlucky” and then use this internal dialogue to justify why you aren’t getting what you want in life?

In this episode, I talk to my good friend, work colleague and co-founder of HealthFit Collective Greig Rightford about his journey. It starts growing up in South Africa in a high discipline environment right the way through to running an Ultra Endurance marathon through the Sahara Desert weeks after breaking his neck! After listening to this you realise that success isn’t luck and that there are certain rules that you must follow if you want to achieve optimal health and happiness in your life.
