Outline/structure of the Session
This is a talk and Q&A conducted via video conference
Takashi Harada, a track and field coach, in Osaka, Japan developed a new methodology to lead underachievers to become winners. His students won 13 gold medals, best in all of Japan, and the school went from the worst to the best out of 380 schools. HIs methodology has been taught to over 60,000 people. Shohei Otani a student at high school and also followed the Harada Method, setting a goal to pitch in the Japanese baseball major leagues. He also set a goal to pitch at 99 miles an hour. He attained his goals and was selected into the majors. After just three years, he was Japan's best pitcher, throwing at 103 miles per hour, selected as most valuable player and rumored that the New York Yankees were willing to pay 20 million dollars to get him.
The Harada Method might not get you into the major leagues but it will surely help you rise to your maximum capabilities. You can be a hero of your own life when you can learn how to set goals and how to attain them.
