The Book’s Unique Quality (4:45)
What’s different about my book is that I am not offering any strategies, advice or techniques and that alone distinguishes it a lot.
The Best Way To Engage (6:00)
The book is structured in to two parts and part one lays out the foundation that I am wanted to point people to and it’s important that you read this part in the order that I have it. And part two is really bringing to life the foundation that I’m sharing in part one.
The Reader’s Takeaway (22:39)
Probably that state of mind is everything and understanding how state of mind really works is the key to a high performance life.
A Deep Dive Into The Book (7:11)
Part one of the book is designed to set out a fundamental understanding about how human experience works. What I am saying is that there is a fundamental misunderstanding at play that is really crucial in terms of performance that 90% of people are overlooking. I share some informative insights that shed light and points to just how misunderstood performance is. This is my attempt to see the proof of this misunderstand, to be able to relate to it directly, and be able to see where in your life this makes sense to you. I talk a lot about state of mind and the role it is playing.
In part two of the book I talk about bringing to life the foundation and understanding that I am sharing in part one. I give lots of client’s stories and research throughout the book where I try to bring to light something very powerful about the nature of thought. I have chapters that are focused on the notion of identity and who we are verses who we really are. I help the reader to see who you are before your thinking about who you are and the implications for you as a leader.
The book is about why state of mind is everything and how we are missing one simple truth about how it works and how seeing through that can change everything.

Notable Quotes From The Book (23:12)
“We have a thought and we put it outside of ourselves we project our thoughts on to a situation, a person, a past or future event, and then we forget that it’s thought and it becomes part of the fixed reality out there outside of us separate to us.” – Chantal Burns
The Credibility/Inspiration Of The Author (0:36)
I have been working in the area of high performance and culture change/organizational change for the last 15 or so years. Before that I worked in a corporate environment for 15 years in a commercial role in sales marketing. And then in 1999 I set up my own consultancy and have been working with businesses, leaders, and organizations helping them to improve performance at work.
Having worked with organizations and leaders for quite a number of years I have always been very curious about what creates the high performance culture. I have always been interested in what kept people from improving so I dived in and did my research and wanted to share it with others.
