About the book

Forget the idea that you can create success in your life simply by setting a goal and using your willpower. You’ve tried that before, and it doesn’t work. There is another way. Whether your goal is to look after yourself, improve relationships, or build a successful business, the Game Changer Formula is a solution for predictable success. The Game Changer Formula has four components:
— Vision
— Mindset
— Energy
— Accountability
Rory Prendergast developed the formula from his successes, failures, and adventures, including sailing across the Atlantic Ocean. In this book he explains how to integrate it into your life using 10 simple daily habits. The Game Changer Formula has proven successful for people who have used it. Their stories and Rory’s insights will help you understand the power of this new formula. If you implement the Game Changer Formula, it will change your life.

A man goes to sea for reasons that are not entirely clear.  He takes his Penelope with him; together their odyssey brings them to new territories, mostly within themselves.  Like Erik Weihenmayer’s Adversity Advantage, Rory Prendergast comes to ‘self help’ with his own truth, the humility that comes with mature understanding, and the courage of his convictions. Prendergast updates the efforts of predecessors – from Ben Franklin to Dale Carnegie to Stephen Covey – for an era where change comes daily, seemingly minute by minute.  Highly recommended.

What’s in the book

I. Your Operating System

It is time to look at what drives successful change, and why people so often fail when they commit to goals despite incentives and strong motivation. The concept I’m about to explain should unquestionably be taught in schools, in my opinion, but it never is. In fact, you are probably among a tiny percentage of people who has even heard of it, never mind done anything about it. To achieve your potential, you must understand a little about how your mind works. This chapter looks in particular at the subconscious mind: how it impacts your life, and how you can train it to help realize your ambitions. These subliminal aspects of everything that happens to us may seem to play very little part in our daily lives. But they are the almost invisible roots of our conscious thoughts. —Carl Jung


What makes the Game Changer Formula different is that it is designed to be sustainable and continuous. It does not rely on your willpower. I developed it after years of trying to find a system that could produce the results I was looking for across all aspects of my life. The Game Changer Formula has improved my relationships with my wife and my son. It has brought me many new and profitable business opportunities. It has increased my productivity by about 50 per cent. It has made me fitter, faster, and more flexible at 50 years of age than I have ever been before. It has had a giant impact on my self-confidence and on my attitude to the world. It has helped me to see life as an exciting and adventurous game that can be won. So if life is a game, then this is the Game Changer Formula:


III. Dealing with Stress

The Game Changer Formula will enable you to turn an unsatisfactory life story into a remarkable one. Stress can bring that unsatisfactory story back, threatening your achievement of predictable success, so it is important to deal with it. Stress is prevalent in our lives today. I’ve devoted this chapter to the challenge, so that you can minimize stress in your life.
Stress is caused by being “here” but wanting to be “there”. —Eckhart Tolle
Acute stress is a physiological reaction that prepares your body to deal with threats. We know it as the fight-or-flight response. It is triggered by the release of a hormone that prepares you for action by speeding up your heart, increasing your blood pressure, tightening your muscles, and pumping adrenaline around your body. In prehistory it may have saved your life if you were faced with a sabre-toothed tiger.
