I've had the pleasure of interviewing one of the most successful marathon runners in Australian history. I'm referring to Steve Moneghetti who is affectionately known by most as ‘Mona’.
Every Aussie has heard of Steve Moneghetti. World championship bronze medallist in Athens in 1997, fifth in an Olympic marathon, major marathon wins in Berlin and Tokyo plus a string of placings…he stands with the true greats like Robert de Castella, Lisa Ondieki and Derek Clayton, at the top of the running tree.
We all know Steve Moneghetti as an incredibly tough marathon runner, but he is also the most humble and cool minded bloke there is.
I’m one of the lucky few who has got to know and chat with Steve Moneghetti personally, and to benefit from his resilience and steely mindset strategies that have made him the incredible success that he is.
As a runner myself, and someone who has survived Meningitis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and other challenging life events, his insights have given me another layer of knowledge and mental toughness to help me continue forging my own path away from those negative life experiences.
Just as pleasingly, it helps my community to do the same in relation to their own life challenges and happiness! Steve Moneghetti and I cover various topics including overcoming negativity and difficult life events, preparing for unprecedented challenges, how to master patience, the significance of personal accountability, how to overcome self doubt and believe in yourself, plus so much more.
I’ve been sharing these videos to @AlanaHuxtableOfficial so stay tuned!
