“There are so many things in the world that we can’t control, but we can choose our attitude and mindset.” Marathon runner Kay Bretz has this unique ability to stick to a race plan under pressure and remain in control of the process, not the outcome of the race.
Kay’s decision to always challenge himself to look for new horizons by ‘turning right’ led him to become the fastest ever Australian runner at the 24-hour world championships, and being given the Australian Ultra Performance of the Year Award at the 24-hour world championships in France.
After years of pre-programming himself to always turn left as he left his house, one day ‘turning right’ changed his life forevermore. One moment of deciding to turn right took him on a completely new journey and one that changed his life and mindset forever.
As Bretz says: “This book is all about helping you unlock both your biggest challenges and your innermost dreams by revolutionising your inner game and undergoing vertical development ― step-changing your personal growth and accessing a new level of awareness.”
This book is for those people who, like Bretz, desire more from their existence and have the courage to lead a life where they shine brightly. At the end of each chapter there are ‘self check-in’ questions to help you reflect on the journey and focus on this course.
Skillfully entwining his amazing running journey, with the challenges in his professional and personal life, Bretz reveals it is reasonable and logical to find the magic from within.
Even best-selling author of Finding Gobi Dion Leonard places a lot of perspective in the foreword in Turning Right. “If you want to become the best version of yourself, whether that’s in day-to-day life, leadership, business or as an athlete, this book can guide you to achieve more than you ever thought possible.”
