After barely surviving the experiences of an extremely negative childhood, which included an “unsuccessful” suicide attempt, Gillette enlisted in the military, graduated from college and worked in law enforcement. His early decision to help others has manifested itself in every area he has pursued since childhood.
According to Gillette, “After surviving that incident, I reexamined my life and where I was going. I reconnected with a girl who has now been my wife for almost thirty-three years. I decided that I wanted to help other people. I wanted to basically flip my life around from what it had been.
I’ve always been at my best when I’m helping other people. And I’ve always felt I was at my best when I was pursuing strength. I don’t mean just in the physical context, but in doing things that made me better. That has just been a constant for me.”
Gillette’s life experiences include being an Army paratrooper, SWAT team commander, government counter-terrorism consultant, bodyguard to Fortune 500 CEOs, earning three different black belts and using his formidable mental training to set world records.
Gillette does not appear to know the meaning of the word “failure.” The combination of his extremely diverse life experiences and the strategies he has learned through them make him the ideal coach for those who want to bust through obstacles that are keeping them from achieving peak performance in their life.
Gillette shares, “Peak performance” basically means operating at one’s optimal level of potential, and getting to that point in a deliberate and systematic way. We’ve all had moments in our lives where everything just seemed to go very well, what’s often referred to as being in the flow-state. But how does a person reliably integrate that state into whatever it is that they do?
Because I’ve been exposed to so many different methods through all the different things that I’ve done in my life, I’ve been able to extract what works well and combine that in a way which is understandable and doable for people.”
As a coach, Gillette helps people reach that next level of achievement by designing a plan to get them there. As Gillette points out, “A lot of the things I’ve done in these disparate areas are really the result of being good at planning and being good at execution. When most people have a roadmap, we find that they do a lot better in terms of getting the outcomes they desire.”
As he explains in this interview, Gillette excels at helping others achieve the outcomes they desire, despite real or perceived obstacles.
