When you set a goal to achieve peak performance in whatever you do, it's the exact mindset that quickly propels you leaps and bounds past your competitors.
Believe me most people don't think that way on a continuous basis. They train, they exercise hard, they try to learn the latest techniques, they try to lose weight, they try to lift more weight, do more reps, or run faster.
But when those two words – Peak Performance – are foremost in your thoughts, you will always get a different outcome than if they're not.
Everyone is trying hard, working harder, scurrying to try the latest exercise gadget, wanting to get more ripped.
But they fail to put empowering words like Peak Performance into their every day vocabulary.
Peak performance is a powerful mindset that puts your brain in a completely different gear – a gear so vastly different than how we normally think that its alarming how fast it can bring us closer to our dreams when we begin training for peak performance instead of “trying our hardest” or “training with more discipline than we've every had”.
The words and the words we put together make all the difference in our outcomes and dramatically affect the questions we ask ourselves to get more empowering answers.
I believe most of us instinctively know what we should and should not be doing if those words – peak performance – were predominant “gears” of your working vocabulary.
Do you think there's an Olympic athlete training this year who doesn't have those words as a predominant goal in their mind? I think not and that's why whether they win a gold or not, it's that kind of mindset that will spur them to become the finest athletes in the world.
Peak performance is a mind set that has been second nature to them for many many years and has deeply affected the choices they've made that got them to the Olympics in the first place.
You will find that using those two words will completely change your whole demeanor immediately when you walk into the gym or into the office. With the thought that you're training for peak performance, you begin asking empowering questions – you begin having new and higher expectations of yourself and the tools you'll use to achieve it quickly.
Incorporating words “peak performance” into your life already presupposes that you'll be using the best resources and getting things done the quickest way possible. That's a good mindset to have.
