EP011 - From tackling monsters for England to a spiritual awakening (with Mark)

Life Changes

"I am a bit different and a lot of people think they should be ashamed by that. Once you understand uniqueness, embrace it, and if someone doesn't like it, that's their issue. So I've become so laser focused - once I focus on something, we're going to the N'th degree. We're going to Saturn. Not even the Moon, we're way past the moon!"

The first phase of Mark Edmonson's life was physical - playing for the best rugby league teams in the world, including winning many championships with St Helens, playing for England and moving to Australia - tackling monsters (literal and metaphorical) along the way.

Crushing injuries brought his playing career to a halt, and after a difficult period, Mark transitions to peak performance psychology and worked his way up to coach the England Rugby Union team, helping them get to the World Cup Final in 2019. He's also worked with the world's fastest man, Usain Bolt.

Mark is now on a spiritual journey though - and the third phase of his career and life. He has some fascinating views and, in his own words 'is not for everyone'. Mark is a pleasure to be with and has some great pieces of advice that we can all learn from.
