The Focus Zone is all about choices – what choices are you going to make today to be the best version of you? It’s the opening words the sports psychologist who first taught Wes the Focus Five asked him, and it’s very relevant in this interview with international success coach, Raghav Parkash.
We met up with the guru who works with major global high profile figures to find out what motivates him.
WHO: in your life inspires you?
Cristiano Ronaldo. I’m totally blown away by the standards he sets himself everyday and the legacy he is creating of being remembered as one of if not ‘the greatest’ footballer to have ever played the game. He’s the first one in to training and the last one out.
WHAT: does your absolute achievement look like?
This for me has to be taking my work in to Politics over the next 20-5 years. One of my biggest strengths as a coach is knowing and understanding people. If I can bring the best of what I have come across to Parliament, they will be able to serve our beloved nation even greater!
WHEN: is the next opportunity to take another step in the right direction towards your success?
Now, today, tomorrow & everyday that follows. The exciting thing about any big vision, goal or mission is that it is accomplished one day and one step at a time. Sometimes you can’t even see the whole staircase as Martin Luther King would say but it’s about taking one step at a time.
WHERE: you’ve visited that drives you to achieve your end goal?
Westminster Bridge. Standing in such an iconic part of London, looking on to the majestic Houses of Parliament while soaking in the fantastic views of the greatest city in the world. You will never fall short of inspiration and ambition.
WHY: a memory of something you’ve done and WHY it pushes you to keep chasing after your dream?
Starting my business and leaving my corporate job. I had no idea this moment was happening so soon but it did, and I felt so fantastic at the time. When I think about this very moment, it inspires me and reminds me of why I do what I do and the steps it took in order for me to live my dream.
