A stretch goal helps you move beyond your current capabilities and performance. It requires sacrifice, dreaming big, and grit, and it should push you toward new possibilities, feeding the fire in your belly. A stretch goal may even be a little uncomfortable to pursue. It might include a new approach or a brand-new path. What hard, gritty goals do you want to pursue? 

Quote of the Week: “The key to stretch is to reach for more than you think is possible. Don’t sell yourself short by thinking that you’ll fail.” Jack Welch, Former Chairman of General Electric

High performers know who they are. They grow in their awareness of themselves and one way to do that is to identify your core values in a conscious way. Meaning, you decide what values, or core beliefs, you want guiding you in this phase of life. Then, you can use these values to guide your behavior and actions. 

Power Phrase this Week: I know myself and use my values to guide my actions each day.” 

Quote of the Week: Elvis Presley said, “Values are like fingerprints. Nobody’s are the same, but you leave them all over everything you do.” 

Jun 23, 2022

High performers are intentional with their outlook realizing that they can change their focus at any time. They use the practice of reframing each day when they experience difficulties. They don’t ignore the difficulty, but instead see a different perspective and how experiencing the obstacle is helping them. This helps them feel positive and motivated to keep going in their life, sport, and/or job.  

Power Phrase this Week: I use reframing regularly to keep me passionate and charged for my goals and my life. I see a setback as a comeback.” 

Quote of the Week: “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Wayne Dyer

He authored 10 Stories to Impact Any Leader: Journal Your Way to Leadership Success in Spring 2020 and works with business leaders to hurdle adversity, amputate fear, and embrace a new normal mindset to win life's medals.

It’s easy to compare yourself or your performance to others instead of staying focused on your own improvement. It’s easy because we live in a culture obsessed with comparison.

May 11, 2022

To create the life, performance, and business that you desire and deserve, you have to see it first. You have to have a positive expectation about yourself, other people, and the circumstances in your life. Dr. Kamphoff talks in this episode how when you continually believe in the best-case scenario and make it happen with your "my-scenario", your life changes. This will change your future and bring your grit to a whole new level. 

This Week's Power Phrase: “ I focus on what I want to happen. I believe the sky is the limit for me.” 

This Week's Quote of the Week: “Don’t spend a lot of time imaging the worst-case scenario. It rarely goes down as you imagine it will, and if by some fluke it does, you will have lived it twice.” —Michael J. Fox 

May 6, 2022

Many of us have gifts that we are not expressing to their fullest. We may not have reflected about what is unique about us, or we might have taken our own unique gifts for granted. We may have even overlooked or downplayed them. But when you name your gifts and work to find your Zone of Genius, you gain more excitement and energy to live your life on purpose. Dr. Kamphoff asks us to consider “What is in your Zone of Genius? How can you spend more time in that zone?” When you make the choice to do just that, you thrive. You spend more time doing what you love and what you were uniquely designed to do. 

This Week’s Power Phrase: “I own my unique skills and talents. I engage in what I love.” 

Quote of the Week: “Hard work doesn’t feel like hard work when you are doing what you love.” —Unknown 

Apr 27, 2022

Today on the podcast we discuss expectations. Expectations can place pressure on us without even realizing it. To be our best more often, we want to stay focused on excellence, not perfection. We are at our best without expectations when we are focused on the process (the small things we need to do) and our mind is in the present (not the future where expectations live). Today, to be the best you that you can be – do your best and have fun. These two expectations will free you from pressure. 

Power Phrase this Week: “I do my best and have fun!” 

Quote of the Week: “Expect nothing, appreciate everything.” Anonymous 

Apr 15, 2022

Your inner critic is your disempowering inner voice that can sounds scared, angry, or judgmental. We want to be aware of our inner critic to reduce it. We all have an inner critic inside of us. Remember our inner critic tends to lie to us. We want to respond to our inner critic with challenging it, and choose a more empowering and truthful statement to tell ourselves instead. 

Quote of the Week: “Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love.” Brene Brown 

This Week’s Power Phrase: “I talk to myself powerfully instead of listening to my inner critic.” 

Apr 13, 2022

Regularly practicing gratitude is powerful because it has a lasting impact when doing it regularly. Gratitude is connected to better health, more optimism and resilience. Remember, you can shift your focus at any time to what is good and what you are gratitude for in the situation. Choose to take the perspective of a resilient person and draw the good from a difficulty. 

Quote of the Week: “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”—Oprah Winfrey 

Power Phrase of the Week: I choose to intentionally practice gratitude daily. I focus on what I am grateful for to stay fueled and excited for my life.”

Mar 23, 2022

In order to reduce overthinking, self-doubt, fear – all of our inner limits – it all starts with self-awareness. Your self-awareness is having an understanding of yourself, your emotions, and what drives you. Cindra challenges you this week to notice yourself – how are you feeling/thinking about, and use the PCR strategy that she discusses to keep increasing your own awareness of yourself. 

This Week’s Power Phrase: “I choose to lead the hardest person first—myself. 

This Week’s Quote of the Week: “Self-awareness is the ability to take an honest look at your life without any attachment to it being right or wrong, good or bad.” Author Debbie Ford 

Mar 11, 2022

Think about a time that you were in flow. What did your flow zone feel like? What led to that feeling? What were you doing? Dr. Cindra shares with us three things we can do to get in the flow more often. Flow is like a muscle—the more you train and experience flow, the easier it will be to reach your flow zone. 

Power Phrase of the Week: “I find my flow and do what I love.”

Quote of the Week: “This is how memories are made….by going with the flow.” Amanda Bynes 

Mar 7, 2022

High performers don’t hope their thinking will work for them; they make their thinking work for them. They are intentional and purposeful with their daily self-talk. They condition their minds each and every day which helps overcome self-doubt. In this episode, Cindra shares two ways to address self-doubt to be intentional with your self-talk.  

This Week’s Power Phrase:  “I level up my thoughts to level up my life.” 

This Week’s Quote of the Week: “Fear and self-doubt have always been the greatest enemies of human potential.” Brian Tracy
