More Than Tactics & Strategies
Establishing peak performance is rarely done by solely mastering tactics and strategies. This is because many are simply unaware of the raw truth about performance training – it’s not about becoming flawless with your time, your actions, or your execution, it’s about your connection to your heart. This may sound wild coming from a performance coach. Yes, habits, patterns, and taking ownership of your life are ALL vital to your growth, however, taking the time to understand and listen to what your heart is yearning for is what will catapult you into your highest level of performance.
In a world where we are controlled by technology, our lives are now intermingled with others around the world. We have the ability to glimpse into the lives of almost anyone we choose, and with this ability has come the creation of a comparison culture of envy, jealousy, greed, and despair. I have personally encountered hundreds of successful people that have only realised after their ‘rise to the top’ that the reason for doing most of what they had accomplished was based on someone else’s vision of success. This realisation has left them saddened and reeling with feelings of unfulfillment after working so hard to have what they thought was their dream life.
Executing Without Fear
When considering high performance, I think of it as executing without fear and handling obstacles with ease, clarity of vision, mastery of time, rock solid belief systems, and most of all – a fulfilled life. All of these things hinge on whether or not you are connected to your heart and soul’s calling. Our connection to our deepest power, our raw truth, our ‘heart centre’ is what allows us to step outside the role of a ‘doer’ and experience life as a ‘being’. When we are connected to our heart we are free from guilt, shame, and often concern of negative ‘what ifs’.
Experiencing the highest level of love for who you are gives us a power to create any reality we wish to see around us. Doing things because you LOVE them is so much easier than doing them because you HAVE TO. Finding complete alignment of the most important elements of peak performance – mind, body, and spirit all starts with the connection to the heart. The moment we recognize our ultimate power and live from that space we unlock strength and resilience in our body that we may never have known was there. We ignite energy into our spirit which frees us to chase bigger dreams and tackle larger obstacles. Our head has no answers, and our heart has no questions. When connected to our heart we can easily choose to see all the miracles of life around us, which drastically elevates our mindset.
Moving in Alignment
With our mindset, energy, health, and habits in alignment with our heart, we can accomplish anything we desire. Peak Performance is a natural by-product of being in full alignment with your mind, body, and spirit. When a client comes to me and wants to take their life or business to the next level and beyond, I always start with one question – if you had all your financial concerns taken care of for the rest of your life, would you still be doing the same work? What brings you maximum joy? The moment you can connect to your deepest desires you can illuminate your hearts calling.
We are already given natural abilities to fulfil our life’s purpose, but we can lose sight of those along the way by chasing someone else’s vision of success. Redefine your vision by tapping into your greatest power, the power of your heart! Own that power and live from that place. You are here for a magical reason and it is your duty to explore what that is in life. Your level of performance will evolve exponentially the moment you tap into your heart. You will act without second guessing. You will perform without fear of failure. You will grow your business and expand your relationships. Your fulfilment will finally match your achievement. Your heart knows exactly WHO YOU ARE and exactly HOW POWERFUL YOU ARE. Connect with that truth and everything else will fall into place!
