Reaching The “TOP 1%” May No Longer Be Just A Matter Of Talent.

Have you ever watched elite athletes locked in a desperate battle, displaying almost superhuman skills in an effort to gain supremacy?

In 2012 Novak Djokovic defeated Rafael Nadal 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7, 7-5 to win the Australian Tennis Open. It was the Grand Slam final match with the longest duration in history - five hours and fifty-three minutes. 

Have you ever wondered how they do it? And whether you have what it would take to get to that level - in anything? 

World class tennis players like Djokovic and Nadal train fanatically for years, perfecting the ability to put a ball with invisible swing on a five cent piece at top speed, from thirty metres away while running backwards, exhausted and covered in sweat.

When I was training people like that at the Australian Institute of Sport we called it getting into the “zone”.

Malcolm Gladwell speaks of it in his book, Blink. The uncanny ability of the insurance broker specialising in Van Gough masterpieces to pick a fake within seconds of laying his eyes upon it, despite the Guggenheim Museum having paid $45M for it ten years previously. That’s an example of the “zone”. 

Jon Gottman explains how he can view a couple’s interaction for a few moments and predict the future of their relationship with 90% accuracy. That’s another version of the “zone”. 

These days we talk less and less about specialists being talented. Instead, we realise they have perfected a skill. That is, they’re exceptional at getting into the “zone” so they can pull out the training they’ve spent so many years putting in. 

When we do that (yes - you and I can too!)…

  • Procrastination vanishes
  • Implementation is a snap
  • Motivation skyrockets 
  • Laser focus appears 
  • Anxiety, fear and frustration disappear 
  • Principles replace techniques
  • Effectiveness supersedes efficiency 
  • Ease and grace prevail

It’s like magic.

FACT: There Is A Formula For Generating High Performance That Every “Talented” Person Understands They Have To Use If They Want To Reach The Top.

When you learn these skills you can expect to be more than just good (or even excellent) in your chosen field. 

You’ll be able to pull off a previously unimaginable, unthought of, totally out of the box quantum leap that leaves you breathless.

Expect to spend time coming to terms with how far you have come and how quickly you did it. 

(Read my story in the box - I was put in a remedial English class in year eleven but still managed to publish several bestsellers!) 

Imagine feeling productive, purposeful and powerful because you had a reliable formula for performing at your best all the time. 

As a High Performance Master, your wisdom will be sought after. Friends, coworkers and family will all be bowled over by your ability to get results, your productiveness, your calm command in difficult circumstances, your clarity, vision and purpose and your principled approach. 

This program is for advanced students. We highly recommend you complete the Mindset Mastery course before you attempt it.


Swapping your never ending ‘to do’ list for a sense of achievement.

Stress and drama being converted to ease and grace.

Overcoming procrastination - FOR GOOD!

Tapping into an endless, internal source of motivation.

Never floundering along again. 

Finding it easy to direct decisive action at your goals. 

Becoming a target achieving machine. 

Frustration and endless effort becoming motivation and excitement.

Transforming your life so that you impact on the circumstances, rather than the circumstances impacting on you.

'Never catching up' morphing into calling the shots in life.

Doing all of the above while feeling balanced and happy. 

I’ve studied and taught high performance individuals and corporations for 33 years. I’ve taught on four continents, to over 400,000 students, trained 250+ coaches and written four bestsellers. 

Meanwhile, I’ve also built three multi million dollar businesses, become a partner in multi-national company operating in 73+ countries, overcome terminal cancer, been happily married for 42 years and raised two amazing children. 

…and I’m saying there’s a formula.

Why listen to me?

Are You A ‘Doer’… or Just A Talker?

The sad truth is that there are a gazillion people claiming they can teach you how to make it big time using some system or other. 

So how do you separate those who ‘walk the talk’ from the ones who mostly just… 


That’s no problem! 

And at Global Success Academy it was our problem too. You see, we don't just teach mindset and high performance best practices, we use them in our daily lives and businesses that we actually OWN ourselves. 

We aren’t researchers. We aren’t parroting some guru. 

We are business owners running companies (both on line and offline) that bring in our bread and butter. 


..so we know how much fluff and BS is out there. 

That’s why we created the High Performance Mastery course and certification. 

We have tested it in the trenches of our own companies for 33 years. (with great success) 

We have tested it live in hundreds of our client’s businesses. (they keep asking us to come back) 

We have tested it with hundreds of Entrepreneurs who paid have us tens of thousands of dollars for the information. 

We know it works. Every single time. 

Now we are making it available to YOU…

Global Success Academy Is Different

There’s no shortage of people selling online education covering similar topics, but a Global Success Academy certification is unique because it's been tested in the trenches. The rule in our shop is: any technique we teach MUST work for better than 90% of the people we test it on. Only after overwhelmingly positive results do we bring it online into our teaching system - so you know it works before you start.

In other words, we aren’t spouting theories or methods copied from others in the field.

Thirty-two years of testing and measuring what we can do for ordinary, regular folks means we are practical, hands on characters. If that sounds appealing, then welcome!

Q: What if I’m a complete newbie?

A: The program assumes you are starting with little to no skills and wanting to go from zero to hero in the shortest time possible. It uses the latest, cutting edge teaching techniques to provide you with quantum leaps in understanding – verified by quizzes and mini tests along the way.  

Q: How valuable is this certification?

A: The certification itself is highly valuable if you need to set yourself apart from the competition. However, what’s far more valuable than any badge or certificate is the actual knowledge you're going to receive when you take this class and pass all the tests. You will know EQ inside out and be applying it in your everyday life to get the results you have always longed for. 

Q: How is this workshop delivered?

A: This workshop is delivered 100% online. Each new lesson will unlock as soon as you complete the mini quiz at the end of previous one. At that time you'll receive access to all the training videos, worksheets and downloads you need to complete the current assignments. You are able to login from any computer, tablet or smart phone all around the world and receive your training at any time.

Q: What if I fail? Am I allowed to retake the test?

A: Yes, you make retake the test twice if you need to. You have a total of three attempts to pass. After three failed attempts, you will be required to retake the class and complete all the module quizzes prior to attempting the final exam again. Repeating the course is free. 

Q: How much overlap is there between this and other Global Success Academy training and certifications?

A: While certain themes (i.e. mindset, attitudes, habit change etc.) will be familiar to our more tenured Global Success Academy students, the information covered in "High Performance Mastery" is both new and unique to the Global Success Academy catalogue. 

Covering material previously only ever taught in our advanced live boot camps, High Performance Mastery is our most thorough and in-depth certification on peak performance.

Q: How long do I have to complete the class and take the test once I am enrolled?

A: You can move at your own pace. We understand that life happens and just because you enrol today doesn’t mean you’ll be able to finish (or even start) this week. And that’s ok! Take as long as you like - we aren’t going anywhere and neither is this certification.

Q: What if this training isn't a fit, or doesn’t meet my needs for some reason?

A: No problem. We offer a full 60-day money-back guarantee, so if you register for the workshop and you don’t agree that it’s worth every cent, we will promptly refund your money.

No questions asked. No hassle.

Just send an email to support@theglobalsuccessacademy.com and if you’re still within the generous refund period, a member of the Global Success Academy team will happily process your request.

Q: How long does it take to finish the course and receive my certification?

A: This class has 8 hours of video training, so if you are working at it full-time you could technically complete the class and take all the tests in a couple of days. We recommend that to fully understand and apply the materials, you should allow 5 - 10 days if you are working full-time, and 14 - 21 days if you taking the class part-time.

Q: Can I get access to the training all at once, or do I have to go through it one step at a time?

A: While we can appreciate that our students are excited and wish to progress through the training as quickly as possible, we know from experience that the best results happen when students progress at the recommended pace. That pace however WILL BE DETERMINED by you. The system will open your next lesson as soon as you pass the mini-test at the end of each class!

Q: What if I have questions or need support?

A: We are here to help. Simply log into the private Facebook page and ask away! Paul personally checks this page at a minimum of once every 24 hours – so you will be getting his responses to your requests ASAP!

A: No. A certification that can simply be purchased is not worth the paper it’s printed on. That’s why our courses are challenging. If we’re going to allow you to display a Global Success Academy badge, you better believe you’re going to have to earn it.

Q: Am I guaranteed to get certified if I take the class?

Q: How difficult is the test?

A: You’ll find that the test is satisfyingly difficult. By that we mean it’s difficult enough that you need to actually know the materials to pass, but it isn’t tricky or hard just for the sake of it. 

To preserve the exclusivity and value of this designation, we have made the tests challenging and the questions do pertain to our proprietary methodologies. Don’t expect to be able to pass the test just because you have taken other courses in the past - this training is different, and the exams will reflect those differences.

Q: I don't care about the certification...can I just audit the class?

A: Right now the cost for the class is $495. Ordinarily the sit fee for the certification exam is $500, but currently we have waved that fee and are allowing students to take the exam up to 3 times for free. This will change in the future, at which time we may allow non-certification candidates to audit our classes at a discounted rate, but the price will never be lower than $495.

Q: How long will I have access to the online workshop lessons for?

A: In a word: indefinitely. You will have ongoing access to the video lessons, audios, worksheets and handouts so you can repeat and relive the training whenever you like.
