Have you ever looked at entrepreneurs who achieve so much and asked…
“How on earth do they find time to do all those things?”
If you answered ‘yes’, or you just want to know how to get to the next level so you can achieve more this year, then please keep reading.
Because this week’s newsletter is all about high performance, and how to unlock your full high performance potential.
So without further ado, let’s get started.
What Is A High Performance Individual?
Here’s what I believe defines a “high performance” person.
Someone who possesses skills, talent, and intelligence, and excels in their chosen field, no matter the area.
It could be business, science, sports, music, art, etc.
They have the ability to set and achieve goals so big the average person simply can’t fathom.
They’re committed, willing, and dedicated to achieve success in their eyes, and their work ethic is second to none.
We’re about to get into the strategies of becoming ‘high performance’, but before we begin, let me share with you a 2 minute story of one of my early conversations with my mentor, the 50 billion dollar man Dan Peña >>
Before we go further, have a quick think about what high performance means to you?
How to Set Goals And Actually Achieve Them
If you’re like most people, you have new year’s resolutions every year you never stick with.
If you’re like a small percentage of people, you have new year goals instead of resolutions…
And this is a good first step, but most people never achieve their annual goals.
Perhaps you can relate.
If you’re like an even smaller percentage of people, you set goals, and you monitor them each day…
So you ensure by the end of the year, you can stand proud having achieved them.
I spent 15 years of my life studying personal development and goal setting, and I’ve managed to achieve a lot in that time.
How To Create A Winning Daily Routine
Apart from the fact they’re passionate about what they do…
Another thing all high performance people have in common is a winning daily routine.
This will be different for everyone.
You may like to exercise first thing…
You may like to meditate or do an attitude of gratitude first thing in the morning.
Then plan your day so you can get the most done in the shortest amount of time.
Personally, I like to get around 6 important things done every day that move me toward my goals.
How To Write Affirmations That Work
Another thing big Dan does and that I believe is not only positive self-talk, but positive and empowering affirmations.
Your affirmations must be written in a specific way.
There’s certain words you should never use in your affirmations.
Why High Performance People Have A Growth Mindset
If you caught my ‘secrets to success in 2023’ newsletter, you’ll know having a growth mindset is KEY.
Here’s a brief recap on that email as it pertains to being high performance.
People with a growth mindset have a strong work ethic, they continually improve upon their results, they’re resilient, and they have a positive attitude, amongst other things.
All these are essential to being high performance, and if you want further insight into this, then I recommend you look for one of these two subject lines in your inbox… 7 Secrets for success in 2023 or Want success in 2023? (tips inside), then read and implement some of the strategies.
Why High Performance People Fly Alone
As you may know, when I first started in business I worked 5 years straight without a single day off.
And if you want to be high performance, as Den Peña says “high performance people have an extraordinary work ethic.”
But it’s not just the work ethic that makes them high performance.
It’s their ability to fly alone.
You won’t find someone who is high performance in one area and lacking in another.
But it takes time to get all areas of your life to high levels, so don’t beat yourself up if you’re not seeing results as fast as you like.
Remember, it’s a journey, not a destination.
Where Your Journey To Greatness Starts
As you’re on my email list and reading these newsletters, I’m guessing your journey to greatness and high performance has already begun.
But if you’re new, or yet to begin, or perhaps aren’t as consistent as you’d like to be, I want to leave you with something extra special.
This newsletter has featured very heavily, my mentor, Dan Peña.
And as you may be aware, Big Dan isn’t for everyone.
So, I wanted to give you another expert’s perspective on high performance.
None other than world #1 high performance coach Brendon Burchard.
Brendon sat down with Impact Theory’s Tom Bilyeu, for an in depth interview across many topics.
It’s 48 minutes long, but in the video description you can choose the timestamp which speaks to you most.
A lot of golden nuggets, especially around energy, are shared near the beginning.
Furthermore, Brendon breaks down what it means to develop your passion and build into your goals.
I hope you’ve gained at least a few things you can apply to your life from this newsletter, so that in the months and years ahead, you can look back on your progress and wonder how you made it so far.
To your success,
P.S. – I’ve created a short training just for you.
