Satish Shenoy

Best Selling Author | Runner | Speaker | Advisor | Executive

Having lived in 4 countries and traveled to over 40+ countries across all 7 continents, Satish has always embraced a sense of adventure. He was introduced to running in 2012 and his aspirations soon soared to running a marathon. And soon, he set his sights on the “7 Continents Club” - an exclusive group of runners who have run full marathons across all 7 continents. He achieved this distinction in 2019 after he successfully finished his journey with the Antarctica Marathon®. Satish believes that this unlikely success story is worth telling to inspire others to set and achieve extraordinary goals.

Satish is a Distinguished Toastmaster and award-winning public speaker and he enjoys “sharing and caring” to bring out the best in others through workshops on topics as varied as the magic of mindset, storytelling, impromptu speaking, and more. 

As a senior business executive in his day job, he has leveraged his global experiences to advise and lead businesses spanning seed-stage startups to Fortune 500 companies. Satish believes in the power of teams and in the mantra that by putting people first, the results will follow, which has led to his continued career success.

Table Of Contents

A quick glance into what I have to offer in this book

Ch.01 - The Mirage of The Impossible

We all have seemingly “Impossible” goals but those goals are only a mirage. You can go from Impossible to "I-m-possible" by following the framework and implementing some key principles

Ch.02 - Small Goals, Big Dreams

Take those big dreams or goals and break them down into and smaller goals until they no longer intimidate you. An “impossible” goal is made up of many smaller, possible goals!

Ch.03 - Reaching Higher

When you think you have reached the edge of your comfort zone, reach a bit higher and what you find might surprise you. With this mindset of stretching that goal and doing it consistently, you will be able to get to a totally new place - one which you thought was not possible

Ch.04 - Showing Up

For most people “showing up” is the act of arriving at a place. For others, it is about arriving and being prepared. For a smaller subset, it is about arriving, being prepared and being ready to put in the work to achieve an outcome. Finally, for the remaining few, it is all these things we described in terms of showing up for themselves and also showing up for others.

Ch.05 - Mindset

They say “it is all in the mind” and achieving any audacious goal is no different. Figuring it out and convincing yourself is the critical first step and having the right mindset is the secret.

Ch.06 - It Takes A Village

Achieving something on your own is possible but there are severe limitations to how much you can achieve that way. This is especially true for goals that are challenging! Having people around you that can inspire, coach or challenge you will truly bolster you ability to achieve goals, even the audacious ones!

Ch.07 - Preparation

They say when preparation meets opportunity, you have the greatest chances of success! Preparation involves planning and designing with a goal in mind, and a time bound program with milestones and consistent execution

Ch.08 - Pain

“Pain is weakness leaving the body”. With preparation, conditioning, taking meaningful risks and putting mind over body, I have found that pain becomes a secondary consideration

Ch.09 - Grit

Grit is a combination of passion and perseverance and we will explore two different ways of building grit – an internal approach and an external approach

Ch.10 - Progress

Whether it is marathons or your dream startup or the next moonshot project you want to take on, the importance of feeling that you are making progress is critical to our success. That is what keeps us going!

Ch.11 - Audacity

When I first set my mind on the goal of running a marathon in Antarctica, it had seemed impossible. Some called it audacious. Some even called it crazy. It was the audacity that finally came to my rescue and helped me fulfill my dream

Ch.12 - Finishing Strong

You either finish or you do not. It's that simple. After having run nearly 8000 miles over the last 8 years, it is clear to me that the battle to the finish, and finishing strong, is won or lost between your ears and how you finish one race sets the tone for the next race or challenge.

Ch.13 - The Companion Workbook

A workbook for you to efficiently implement the principles and the lessons covered in this book

Perspectives
