Take Flight has a special series finale featuring guest Eddie Hearn – boxing promoter, managing director of Matchroom Sport, and author of ‘Relentless, 12 Rounds to Success’.
This will be the 100th episode of the podcast and host Mark Whittle will hear from Eddie about mental stability and why identifying short-term goals have been key to achieving his ultimate vision.
Eddie believes we should have a vision and know what we want in life but also focus on short-term goals. He says: “I know that sometimes the vision can be impossible to achieve without solving the immediate problems that are in front of you.
“So many people fail to get ideas, projects, businesses, or dreams off the ground because they’re not willing to solve the aggravation of the short-term problems – or they fall at one of those hurdles and they give up. For me, if I’m feeling a little bit all over the place, or feeling like I’m lacking a bit of structure in my life, then I’ll write down the things that I need to do for that specific day.”
As one of the world’s biggest boxing promoters, Eddie, who recently launched his first book titled Relentless, 12 Rounds to Success, offers listeners an insight into the inspiration behind the book, and why he found writing his story so therapeutic. He explains how, when he first started writing, he felt like he was talking to himself about his experiences and lessons learnt along the way.
“It’s good to be open and discuss things,” Eddie says and adds, “But I also realise that you can do that with yourself too.”
To celebrate the 100th episode of the series, host Mark Whittle is running a giveaway for Take Flight listeners.
