“Every morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.” Mark Twain

 

High performers know that being present is something we need to practice. Now is the more distracted time in our history and we must practice focusing on attention on what matters – the present. With phones and technology, we can be easily distracted and anxiety. To practice mindfulness, or staying in the present non-judgmentally, we can use a body scan – mental scan, environmental scan, or head to toe scan. This helps connect us with what’s going on right now so we can be the best we can be!

 

Power Phrase this Week: 

"I gently bring my attention to the present moment. Letting go of all worries or regrets. Instead, empowered to reach my best right here and right now."

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off your bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain

 

High performers know that confidence is a decision and a skill. It’s more important that they act in a confident way, and then the feeling of confidence come after. To build their confidence, and decrease their FEAR, they DARE. Defuse their negative thoughts, accept the discomfort, set realistic goals, and then embrace their values.

 

Power Phrase this Week: 

"I choose confidence. I act in a confident way, and my confident feelings follow."

“When your brain says that you're done, you're only 40 percent done.” David Goggins, Navy Seal and Ultramarathoner

High performers know they have more in their reserve tank. They keep in mind the 40% rule which means they have up to 60 percent more to give. They embrace the suck, but don’t live there. They think and act like pros by welcoming and embracing the discomfort. They realize they need to stay the course, put their heads in the sand and stay gritty.

Power Phrase this Week: 

I have a reserve tank that hasn’t even been tapped. I put my head in the sand, stay the course, and remain gritty.

“Sometimes you have to get out of the way of yourself so you can be yourself.”

Amy Cuddy

High performers know they may experience the Impostor Syndrome. When they do, they realize they are in good company. Then, they catch the thoughts causing it. They remind themselves they are enough.  They focus on the value they bring and own their successes. They remember they didn’t get lucky by chance. They reframe their limiting thoughts and remind themselves, they were meant to be here!

My High Performance Power Phrase:

"I am enough. I own my successes and remind myself, I am meant to be here!"
