We all know about burnout and my show has done a few episodes that have specifically looked at the causes, treatments, and best of all prevention.

My guest today Melo Calarco is on a mission to help millions of people beat burnout in the modern world but ever wondered what that takes? He is the published author of Beating Burnout-Finding Balance and is a passionate mindfulness and high-performance coach, keynote speaker and corporate programs facilitator. Melo learned to manage highly challenging and stressful situations, build mental endurance and rise above adversity from his life lessons on the road where he cycled, trekked and travelled over 30,000km’s around the planet on his mountain bike. He traversed five continents and along the way he had to overcome many obstacles and demanding encounters, including near-death experiences.

He has helped many CEO’s, leaders, corporate executives, medical professionals, elite athletes and other high performers to build resilience and perform at their absolute best, without burning out. Melo’s work has been described as truly transformational and his clients include, Deloitte, PwC, Royal Flying Doctor Service, Loreal, SEEK, David Jones, ANZ bank and many of the world's top companies.

Hear from Melo on:

1. How do you define mental endurance?

5. The most untapped resource when it comes to mental endurance is what, in your experience?
