65: Unblind the Mind with Darren Harris
I was really looking forward to interviewing Darren as he has such an infectious personality and great attitude in life, as you will hear in our interview
Darren Harris is an author, speaker and coach on mindset mastery.
He works with forward thinking organisations that want inspiration, courage and determination to tackle life’s biggest challenges.
Black, blind and a badass footballer – Darren is the most capped England blind footballer, he uses real-life examples to bring different perspectives to his clients in business, education and sport.
His motto “The eyes are useless when the Mind is Blind” transformed his thinking of what blindness means, and began his mission to "Unblind the mind."
Darren is a regional president of the Professional Speaking Association, graduate of The Coaching Academy, Amazon #1 best-selling author, and recipient of an honorary doctorate for outstanding public service.
Some key points from our interview:
· How he denied what was going on for a while whilst his sight was failing
· How sports, especially football, gave him focus and direction
· How he realised that he wasn’t going to live the limited life he thought he would because of his blindness
· How he’s learnt to thrive and experience life in many different ways
· How he realised that whatever he had lost, he could survive without it
