Athletes train every day to improve their skills in order to achieve victory in a particular sports competition. And if they are amateur athletes, they need to work even harder and be more disciplined in their training. Optimised training methods are incorporated in their routine to reach the gold standard. Practice is a very important element for athletes to develop well over time. When this is done consistently on a daily basis, they will surely reap the rewards in the end.
The goal to reach peak performance is not only applicable to professional athletes. Perhaps you have also experienced that you performed to the best of your ability just like athletes do. Try to recall those special moments when you have achieved above and beyond what is expected of you, and that you constantly excel in everything you do. These are the moments that you have to value and pay close attention to because that should serve as your starting point.
Establish the framework that would empower you to always perform at your peak, up to a certain degree that you feel your life routine is already centred on it. It’s definitely the kind of culture that we all need to develop to attain a better quality of personal and work life.
Don’t lower your expectations to meet your performance. Raise your level of performance to meet your expectations. Expect the best of yourself, and then do what is necessary to make it a reality. – Ralph Marston
Be more focused and learn how to create your flow.
Flow comes in different stages depending on an individual’s characteristics and skill level. When you find your flow, do your best not to break it so as you continue to improve your skills, you are then also able to take on more difficult challenges in the long run. When you reach higher levels, you do not only enhance your skills, but you become more patient and resilient at the same time.
What we can control is our performance and our execution, and that’s what we’re going to focus on.Â – Bill Belichick
Be more open to learning new things.
When you have the motivation and determination to learn, it will be easier for you to absorb new information. You will be more aware and engaged than you have ever been! Aside from learning the proper knowledge and hard skills necessary to reach new levels, it’s also important for us to develop Emotional Intelligence. Like many other things, EQ can be learned as well. Emotions are a very critical aspect of your journey to making better decisions and to be more efficient and effective in any circumstance. The use of emotions is actually the cornerstone of peak performance.
The More You Know, the More You Can Grow. – Martin Hilbert
