Performance neuropsychology with Dr Chris Friesen, author of Achieve

On September 2023 we had the privilege of sitting down for an in-depth conversation with Dr Chris Friesen, Canadian Psychologist and author of the best-selling book ACHIEVE: Find Out Who You Are, What You Really Want, and How To Make It Happen. Dr. Friesen’s expertise and insights into achievement and performance neuropsychology have made him a sought-after figure in the professional and sports spheres.


In this conversation, we delved into the essence of success itself, probed into the intricate processes that athletes undertake to realize their dreams, and questioned whether anyone can truly achieve anything they set their minds to. Furthermore, we explored the unique perspective of neurodivergent individuals in the realm of high achievement. From the basics of ‘what makes people successful?’ to cognitive development, willpower, decision fatigue and more.

This conversation with Dr. Chris Friesen shed light on the intricate workings of the human mind and how they intersect with the pursuit of success. It was a profound exploration of the factors that set high achievers apart, and the strategies that can empower anyone to reach their full potential.
