What you'll do

Need motivation or find it hard to maintain momentum? Feel overwhelmed? I got you. I'll help you with a fresh perspective and tips to identify your goals and take action to realize them. I’ll share three ingredients to take your life to the next level and I’ll use examples from my own bumbled quest to the Olympics.

As storytelling is a huge part of Polynesian culture, I’ll tell my story around a wooden kava bowl. You’ll be encouraged to have a healthy “inu”—a drink—with me each time we share. You’ll learn the importance of resourcefulness over resources, and you can pick my brain on how to overcome any challenges.

My Experience on July 26 at 10 AM London time will be streamed live for more fans to watch on Airbnb.com and video sharing platforms. Join me and be part of the stream.

My name is Pita Taufatofua but you may know me as the Tongan flag bearer. I've qualified and competed in both the summer and winter Olympic Games in taekwondo and cross-country skiing.

With no snow in Tonga, I learned how to ski and reach Olympic-level qualification in under one year. Unbelievable, right?

I have worked for over fifteen years in youth homeless shelters, studying to figure out what it takes to help people overcome their biggest challenges. That is my passion: helping people become the best they can be. This passion led me to become the first ever UNICEF Goodwill ambassador for the Pacific. I also wrote a book called "The Motivation Station" and it became a bestseller. I’m excited to share the key secrets that I use daily to achieve my impossible goals.

Really enjoyed meeting Pita and hearing about the many challenges he's tackled. There's much depth to his stories and advice. His desire to help others shines through thoughtful questions for us and in his endeavors for the youth back home. He's a very relatable guy who taught, among other things, the power of perspective. Failures and obstacles can be framed differently if they've been holding you back. Even Donkey Kong could be seen differently. Best of luck to everyone out there conquering the next level.

I enjoyed this experience with Pita, he was very friendly, animated, gracious and didn't shy away from sharing very helpful tips on goal-setting and motivation using his life's experiences . His intuitive instinct shows his flexibility during the session, addressing and giving each person the time to speak. His tenacity for his goals and motivation whether or not it's in professional sport, mental health, his culture or for the children are all very admirable. Loved it, thanks Pita :)

You won’t be disappointed, even if you just need a reason to put your goals into words, this is the way to push yourself to do it. Pita has a great interactive session where you get to learn about his experience in the olympics while also being able to put his same goal setting mindset into your life. Truly a fantastic time 🤙🏻🤙🏻

Very impactful! I've participated in a lot of motivational events, but this was special. Pita is a great storyteller and has a way of engaging people and connecting with genuine interest. His tips for achieving your goals were unlike others I've heard, and really resonated with me. I'd attended another one and he remembered me and what I'd said. I will be reflecting on this for some time. I highly recommend his sessions.

Could certainly not recommend this enough! This was absolutely amazing! The amount of thought that went into this was amazing. Pita took his time to discuss stories and actions for every individual on the call. The depth of his story telling and memories were phenomenal. I hung onto every single word of what he was saying. I’d certainly recommend this for any individual who wants to just step back and start a goal or to refocus their goals.
