The Truth …..

by Sunil Bali, 21-08-16

There has been a lot of nonsense spoken in the last two weeks about athletes being in the zone at the Olympics.

The truth is that we’re born in the zone.

Whether it was learning to walk or talk, you practiced tirelessly and didn’t get bogged down in failures for one simple reason: you didn’t think about them.

We get out the zone because we think too much.

The widely recognized formula for high performance is:

Performance = capacity – interference

And the primary source of interference is our own thinking.

Unconscious competence and performing to our full capacity requires an empty mind.

Think less, do more.

Do you mind …..

by Sunil Bali, 31-07-16

Leading performance psychologist and Chairman of the Human Performance Institute Dr. Jim Loehr said, "Your mindset puts a lid on what you can achieve, because your body hears everything your mind says and acts accordingly."

If you go to a restaurant you wouldn’t order your least favorite dish would you?

Yet when it comes to our thinking, we humans have a habit of choosing the most unsavory thought patterns that don’t support what we want to achieve.

If beating ourselves up worked, we would all have a six-pack, a fat wallet and a permanent grin.

When we align our thinking to our vision, move our mental cursor to what we want, and stay on the right page, the universe has a habit of falling into line and producing copious quantities of synchronicity, serendipity and success.

Thoughts can be like X-rays, choose the right ones and they’ll go through anything.


  1. I put an accumulator bet on 3 horses yesterday, Sunshine, Moonlight and Goodtimes, I didn’t win, I blame it on the bookie.
  2. I can hear music coming out of my printer.
    I think the papers jammin’ again.
  3. I was discussing death with my grandad last night.
    He said that when the time comes he wants to be cremated.
    Grandad then tells me I have the last 2 family plots in the cemetery.
    I have grave reservations.
  4. My wife crashed the car while listening to Adele in the radio.
    She was rolling in the jeep.

I’m away for a couple of weeks. Back on 14th August.

Until then …..

Connectile dysfunction …..

by Sunil Bali, 24-07-16

Japan’s bullet trains can move people more quickly into its major cities, than any other country in the world.

Japan also has one of the highest suicide rates in the world.

So the question has to be asked, what’s the point of taking people faster to somewhere they don’t want to go?

The World Health Organization estimates that in the last 50 years, suicide rates have increased worldwide by over 60% largely due to work related stress and isolation.

We are technologically overfed, but emotionally malnourished.

Every day hundreds of millions of people take photos, make videos and send texts.

IBM estimate that by 2020 there will be nearly 2000 trillion gigabytes of data in existence.

What if we spent more time face to face, communicating with our lips rather than our thumbs, and synced our hearts rather than our iPhones?

Whilst we stream huge volumes of data around the plant, the human race suffers from connectile dysfunction.

The answer is to log onto our Innernet and transmit wirelessly at the frequency of our heart.

Hat Tip to Alan Cohen



The woman at the bar noticed a guy who kept staring at her.

Finally, he come over to her and said, "How about you give me your number?"

"Have you got a pen?" the woman replied.

"Yes I have," the man replied with a huge smile.

"Well you had better get back into it, before the farmer realizes that you’re missing," the woman replied.
