Edition#44: Leading Into A New Year, Chasing Dreams, What We Can Control

Tips To Perform Better

1. Focusing on what’s within our control offers space for intentional living. 

We can act more purposefully to ensure the behaviours we engage in are designed to improve and not hinder performance

2. Find a trusted source who listens to what you’re aiming to learn and improve. 

It begins with self-talk, but when we communicate our desires and values, clarity presents itself and we’re naturally encouraged to implement non-negotiable behaviours. 

Some Words To Consider

1. If we’re not faced with boredom or anxiety, we wouldn’t know if we’re improving or stagnating. The challenge we face is to create conditions which encourage the outcome of peak performance and those which exploit our true potential. 

Aim to experience challenge without the overwhelm. Kick down the door of fear and watch your performance skyrocket. 

2. As the beginning of another year approaches, take time to reflect and enjoy who’s surrounded you and your results. 

It’s easy to be driven towards achievement, but those around you matter more than you might realise.
