Ep. 169 - Hall of Fame | Asoka Veeravagu: How Developing A Growth Mindset Can Impact All Areas Of Your Life

On this episode of RNT Fitness Radio I’m joined by Asoka Veeravagu, to talk about his journey of being in the shape of his life at 50 years young, and all the challenges he’s faced in getting to this point. Arguably the biggest point to emphasise here is the need to shift from a fixed to growth mindset if you want to truly embrace the power of incremental gains that come with this transformation journey. In a candid conversation, Asoka tells the story of rewiring years of thinking to reveal his best self heading into his sixth decade.

“Everyone can have a better day today than yesterday.”
