Over the past 5 years Adam Sellars has been on what could be described as a spiritual journey that has culminated in the colliding of two worlds that have shaped the person he is today. As an athlete Adam has always grappled with the pressure that is part and parcel of the sporting experience and the other is his own battles with the pressures in life which at one point threatened to cripple and derail his life.
The misunderstood sport of Freediving has opened Adam’s eyes to a new way of living and coping with the pressures and stresses of sporting, work, and his personal life, which Adam wishes to share with teams, organisations and individuals alike. The principles of meditation, power of breath and breath hold and the ability to embrace and withstand the powerful messages from the brain which limit us is what Adam has used to empower himself and others in his new path of helping people unlock their potential through releasing the shackles of pressure.
Adam has also worked with Multi-million dollar businesses within the corporate world Australia wide on subjects ranging from Trust based sales training to stress relief, clients such as Kawasaki Australia, Insurance Australia Group and in terms of sporting team’s sports ranging from Rugby teams and most recently members of the Australian and New Zealand Olympic and Paralympic swimming teams.
Adam has excelled in many sports at a high level but most recently has been selected to represent Australia in the Caribbean world cup of freediving after just two years of competing. Freediving unlike any other sport ignites a primal fear that if not controlled and harnessed can lead to poor outcomes. These self-defeating thoughts can be seen in many areas of our life and is unfortunately part of the human condition quite often with small incidental pressures being staked one on top of the other and then manifesting itself in stress which can result in sickness, mental illness, and or poor outcomes in any sphere of life.
This is the ‘why’ behind Adam’s Pressure Project and what drives Adam to release people from self-defeating thought patterns so they can live a full and happy life and or achieve goals through unlocking the potential often suppressed and sabotaged within.
