“You can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.” Richardo Parente

High performers find the next level by putting in the work. They realize they won’t feel great all of the time, but stick with it knowing they will feel better in a mile. They help others because they know that doing so releases positive endorphins and they generally care for others. They adjust their goals when needed – and stay focused on the process of being at their best – not the outcome.

My High Performance Power Phrase: 

“I put in the work necessary for success. I stick with it knowing it will feel sweet at the end!”

“When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation. Change the situation or accept it. All else is madness.” Eckhart Tolle

High performers dominate their APE. They focus on what they can control – their attitude, preparation and effort and dominate their reaction to what they cannot control. They choose a positive perspective. They prepare full out and are all in to their pursuit of their long-term goals. They use the 86,400 seconds in each day to their fullest capacity. They give their best day in and day out.

My High Performance Power Phrase:

"I dominate my APE. I give my best attitude, preparation, and effort day in and day out."

“If you change the way you look at things, the thing you look at change.” Wayne Dyer

High performers choose positivity in a negative world so they thrive. They use reframing daily which is the process of recreating alternative frames or looking at their life, sport, or the world. They see how the obstacle is helping me. This helps them feel unstoppable and excited about their life, sport, and job.

My High Performance Power Phrase: 

"I choose positivity. I choose to bring positive energy each day and in each situation. I choose to focus on what is great in my life and on my team."

“Comparison with myself bring improvement, comparison with others brings discontent.” Betty Jamie Chung

 

High performers focus on their improvement and reaching their standard of excellence instead of comparing themselves to others. Comparison is the quickest way to let you, your team, your family, or your individual performance suffer. Instead, high performers celebrate others and their accomplishments and ask themselves, “What can I learn from this person?”

 

Power Phrase this Week:

 "I work to be my best me. I know the less I pay attention to others around me, the happier and higher performer I will be!"
