 As a high achiever, it is good to strive for success and have high expectations. These high standards keep you going, striving to be your best. When you strive to be your best, you help others around you do the same. But perfection is unattainable. Instead, consider striving for excellence instead and Dr. Cindra shares with us how to do just that.

Power Phrase this Week: “I am kind to myself when things don’t go perfectly moving on quickly to protect my confidence.”

Quote of the Week: “At the root of perfectionism isn’t really about a deep love for being meticulous. It’s about fear. Fear of making a mistake. Fear of disappointing others. Fear of failure.” - Michael Law

Power Phrase this Week: “My mind is like a muscle. I train my mind to increase my chances of finding flow.”

Quote of the Week: “Flow is being completely involved in the activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies.” - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

You're here because high performance is one of your mindsets. You're already good at what you do and you know there's still more that you can do on your journey both personally and professionally. One of the most famous high performers in the world of business and finance is Warren Buffett. He is ranked as the number one investor of all times and is now one of the world's richest men. Warren said, "You can improve your value by 50% just by learning communication skills and public speaking." 

That's why I wanted you to meet our special guest, Joel Weldon. Joel is my personal speaking skills coach and a Hall of Fame professional speaker, He is the creator of the Ultimate Speaking System for entrepreneurs and business owners as well as executives to speak even more effectively by following one of the most important mindsets ordinary speakers just don't have.

If you rated yourself using a 1 to 10 scale on your ability to speak in front of a group, made up of your ideal audience members, what would that number be right now? It can be anywhere from one which would mean, I'm terrified to speak and I hate it to 10 which would be, I love to speak and I'm amazing at it. 

Wherever you are on that scale, the mindset that Joel is going to share with you can help you be an even better speaker and communicator. Joel has been paid to speak at over 3,000 events and has personally coached well over 10,000 speakers. He is considered one of the highest performing speakers and speaking skill coaches in America. I have seen how he can turn an ordinary presentation into an extraordinary one. You will too. 

In this episode, Joel and Cindra discuss: 

  • How to start and end a presentation or speech 

  • His NFV Formula to connect with the audience

  • How ordinary speakers get it wrong

  • How to choose the best story to tell

  • And, how to start a story

Leading yourself can be very difficult because our brain is hardwired to see what is missing. Instead, you can lead yourself to your own personal vision by remembering:

  1. What you think about yourself, you become.
  2. Thoughts only have power if you believe them. 
  3. You can act independent of how you feel.

Chance thinking doesn’t lead to success – instead, make time each day to master your thoughts and lead yourself even more deliberately.

 

This Week's Power Phrase: “I lead myself today.”

Quote of the Week: “Work harder on yourself than you do your job.” — Jim Rohn
