Captain Sir Tom Moore demonstrated a can-do mindset by the way he walked many thousands of laps around his garden even though he was 100 years old and was clearly frail.
It takes a strong mind and different agility to withstand the impact this would have had on him. Captain Tom expressed the gratitude he said he felt for the NHS because he had been looked after very well in an NHS hospital when he was previously seriously ill. Captain Tom had set out to raise £1K to donate to the NHS by way of thanking them. However, his story became public then quickly went viral, accelerating Captain Sir Tom Moore to raise millions. In fact, Captain Sir Tom ended up raising £34 million for charity and the NHS expressed gratitude publicly for his tremendous efforts.
Michael Ball, the musical theatre star, whose BBC Radio 2 interview with Captain Sir Tom was the first to shine the spotlight on Captain Sir Tom’s fundraising self-challenge.
Captain Tom Moore, in collaboration with Michael Ball, became the oldest person at 100 years old to achieve a UK No 1 single of ‘You will Never Walk Alone’, featuring the NHS Voices of Care Choir. The support for Captain Tom was International, in particular The Weeknd, the Canadian (of Ethiopian heritage) Chart Topping Multi-Millionaire Singer, Song- Writer and Producer publicly told his fans to buy single ‘You will Never Walk Alone’ to enable Captain Tom (& Michael Ball) to achieve No1 single at 100 years - so the oldest No 1 singer.
The general public took Captain Tom to their hearts, which resulted in him being knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. This was the only public engagement the Queen at that point had performed during the COVID-19 pandemic. So, Captain Tom became Captain Sir Tom Moore before he sadly passed.
Some call this a ‘growth mindset,’ others a can-do attitude, and some still a ‘manifesting mindset.’ I believe all 3 concepts apply as demonstrated by the quote by Wayne Dyer below.
