In this episode I had the chance to sit down with Romaine Jackson, Head of South East Asia for Dealogic and Father to two wonderful children, loving Husband, well respected spokesperson, strategic advisor, go-to contributor to CNBC, Fox Business Network and Yahoo! Finance and avid Sportsman among many other things.
We discuss Faith, God, Legacy, Mental Battles, Humility, Sports, Business and having the courage to live outside of your comfort zone as well as focus in on the topic of leaving a legacy and stewardship.
In this episode Romaine talks us through his morning routine, describing why he aims to get 9 hours of sleep each night and the neurobiology behind getting enough sleep. Big idea here.
For those looking to get ahead, Romaine sheds light on his strategy that set him apart, seeks to plan, to look ahead and plan his day, each and every day. He discusses the mindset of championship winning sports people in Cricket, Boxing and Basketball and the importance of humility and respect in team success.
What I love about this wisdom share is how he relates high performance sports achievement to elite business success and gives props to the All Blacks for their stewardship, principles and an ethos. He encourages us to step further into our greatness, to live outside of our comfort zone which makes us challenge our assumptions.
Romaine describes how faith and God has shaped his life and shares with us how the Bible helps him in life and business. He walks us through the Parable of the Talents and how we can work hard, be honest, earn and then give.
It's about using our gifts and talents and giving back to others and why it is super critical to align to something greater than ourselves.
This man is a powerhouse of discipline, mental fortitude, deep thinking and commitment to his purpose in pursuit of living courageously and with meaning.
