succeed and win

“This is not the end, this is not even the beginning of the end, this is just perhaps the end of the beginning.”
― Winston S. Churchill

Do you feel that you are successful?

Are you winning the daily battles?

Are you winning in your version of life?

What does it mean to win?

How do you set and reset the bar of excellence in your life?

What kind of goals are you setting each day?

To win each day is to focus on noticing what is most important right now.  What is important now?  (WIN – what’s important now).

For many people doing what is not important now is consuming their time.  At work how many important things are left undone because the focus is on answering or reviewing emails, answering a text message or following a lonely path through Facebook.

To WIN means setting real and tangible goals that are important each day.  Just a few important things, the most important things, are to be the focal point of the day.

What am I doing that leads to greater satisfaction?

What am I doing that leads to greater productivity?

What am I doing that will make a lasting difference?

What motivates and inspires you?   Are you doing those things in some way each day?

Success is winning the day.  Winning the day means focusing on what is the most important to focus on right now.   Build in the opportunity to be successful each day.   Be the initiator of great work by doing what is most important now.

become an elite performer

‘The ultimate reason for setting goals is to entice you to become the person it takes to achieve them.”   Jim Rohn

be a peak performer

What is an elite performer?  An Olympic athlete,  a top CEO, world champion, top actor or actress.  Who do you know is an elite performer?

Are you an elite performer?   No!  Why not?

Elite performers have a mental mindset that is focused on following a process that generates successful outcomes.  The realization is that elite performance comes from the right state of mind and focusing on the process.  When the process becomes a habit your actions flow naturally towards a state of being that enables elite performances.

What would it take for you to become an elite performer in any area of your life?

Look at each aspect of your life, your work, your wellness, your finances, your relationships and your environment and ask yourself, “what can I do to make one of those areas better”   Develop the processes that would increase your ability to perform better.  Don’t settle for average or doing just enough to get by, do something that would allow you to create an epic performance in life.

Elite performers use 100% of their ability to produce the outcomes they want.   It takes practice to use all of your abilities in producing the best results.

To become an elite performer:

  1. Set a goal
  2. Create a process that enables the desired outcome
  3. Practice the process until it is a habit
  4. Focus on executing the process with consistency

The confident performer is one who has practiced with consistency and has allowed the process to produce the results.   The elite ice skater has practiced over and over their routine until they can do it without thinking about it.   You can do the same thing in your work as well.
