"My mindset was the engine room of my performance, everything filtered down from there."

In the run up to this week’s West Indies cricket match in England, let’s explore the mindset of one of the sport’s biggest legends - Sir Viv Richards. What motivates him? What has he learnt from his setbacks? Following an interview when he worked alongside Viv at the Melbourne Stars T20 team in Australia, Jeremy picks out some impactful insights that we can all benefit from within our personal, work and sporting lives.

Known as the ‘master blaster’, Richards has scored 8,540 runs in 121 Test matches at an average of 50.23, including 24 centuries. He’s testament to how much our mindset filters down to our behaviour and performance.
