The other week I was in Ohio for Lewis Howes’ Summit of Greatness. Lewis hosts a podcast called the School of Greatness (free on Itunes) where he interviews some of the most successful and inspiring people he can find. If you get a chance to check it out, it is a great listen.
At the Summit Brendan Burchard (a prolific writer and motivational speaker) was educating the crowd about the habits of High Performance people.
I liked his talk immensely and wanted to share with you what I learned.
Burchard and his team did an immense amount of research to accumulate this data. These habits are not his opinion they were gleaned from the research.
1) Seek Clarity
Who do I want to be?
How do I want to show up in this situation?
What do I need to master to get to the next level? How can I best be of service to my world?
High Performers know they are responsible for the energy they bring to situations.
They can either be the sunshine or the rain cloud.
High Performers know they must create a sense of necessity and urgency for their actions or they will procrastinate or move too slowly toward their goals.
High Performers know they must do the work in order to meet and exceed their goals.
One of my favorite quotes from the weekend was, “When Opportunity knocks don’t be surprised to find that it is WORK who will answer”.
High Performers know they have impact and reach and they work to develop themselves and their influence on those around them.
High performers speak up for themselves, their ideas and others. They make tough decisions and go forward with integrity.
Lewis Howes saved Brendan Burchard’s talk for the end of the weekend and it didn’t disappoint. It was really interesting…
I suspect that many of you do many of these.
As I saw the list I realized there were a few areas I was really falling short, and I’m committed to working on those areas.
I hope you find the High Performance Habits helpful in not only your fitness journey but your life journey.
Let’s make it another great week!
Committed to your success,
Megan K and the team
