In Episode #21 of Mindset Mastery, “Optimal Performance: Insights from an Olympic Medalist”, host Marie Swift speaks with Paul Kingsman, author of The Distraction-Proof Advisor. Kingsman shares what it takes to become wildly successful, whatever your pursuit. As a young swimmer from New Zealand, Kingsman participated at the 1988 Summer Olympics, winning a bronze medal in the 200-meter backstroke. He also competed at the 1984 Summer Olympics.

In a nutshell: Sometimes success or failure is determined by a split second – and while the determining factors will always include talent, ability, discipline and preparation, in business and life (much like competing in the Olympics), it is unwavering focus that makes the difference. There are many good swimmers who never become great athletes, Kingsman says. Many are undone by that split second of distraction, and because they didn’t see immediate detrimental consequences from that first moment of, say, looking over their shoulder, they allow their focus to waver again – and thus fall short of their goals. Kingsman also talks about how to attract the right clients, the important balance between competent conviction and humble confidence, and achieving optimal performance as a business professional in 2022 and beyond.
