Recently I have been reading a lot of blogs about helping people get out of their “rut” (example blog here) . I couldn’t help but comment on this trend because they always miss what I feel is the most important advice.
1. Make a conscious decision that you are tired of just floating (being comfortably numb), with no passion to achieve your potential.
2. Create a clear vision of your best self. What would you look like if you were swimming (full of passion, energy, resilience and vitality) once again?
3. Spend at least 5 minutes every morning and 5 minutes every night (before bed preferably) intently visiting your best self vision.
4. Consciously change at least one of your low performance Mindset, Nutrition, Movement and Recovery habits. You can read through our previous blogs for some fantastic examples. Even better, come to one of our high performance programs to learn them all.
The bottom line is that your energy, resilience, brain performance, and capacity are the foundation of YOU building a high performance YOU. You can try to do all the things that all the gurus are recommending but without this foundation you won’t succeed. Start with you. Sustainable High Performance doesn’t happen by chance, it happens by choice.
