Peak Your Performance in 6 Easy Steps

Peak your Performance in 6 Easy Steps

Chances are you want to develop peak performance in each area of your life. Whether it’s relationally, career-wise, financially, mentally, or spiritually, you want to maximize your performance so that you will experience the joy and peace that you’re after. Such a desire is commendable and certainly possible when you understand how to achieve peak performance.

Here are 6 easy tips to have peak performance in every area of your life:

Prepare for pressure.

When you prepare for the pressures of life, you tend to handle the stresses associated with what comes your way much better. Think of an athlete that is competing in the Olympics. He may feel the pressure to perform, but he doesn’t let it affect his performance because he is well-prepared for competition. In the same way you can prepare for the stresses of life by training your mind, body, and spirit consistently via personal and spiritual development and physical exercise. Make a decision and commit to it whether you feel like it or not.

Focus on the present.

Yes, the future is important, but the present is more important. In order to be at your best, learn how to focus on your present circumstances. Dwelling on the past is not helpful, though it is always good to learn lessons from it. Dwelling on the future won’t truly serve you well either, especially if you are worrying about it. What about today? If you can focus on the present and do your best today in all areas of your life, you’re bound to perform at your peak.

Negate the negative.

You’re bound to face negative thoughts and emotions, but you do not have to allow them to control you. Take some time to monitor your thought-life and see if you primarily think positive or negative thoughts. Then pay attention daily and when a negative thought arises, change it into a positive one. Retraining the brain to think positively instead of negatively is a worthy goal. Throughout life we tend to let those negative thoughts spin around in our minds more than we realize.

Envision the best.

Visualization is a powerful tool that will help you peak your performance in any area of your life. For example, if you want to be the best in your career, visualize yourself experiencing success often from promotions to favor to a jump in salary. As you envision yourself operating at your best, you gain momentum going forward and become more apt to take the actions necessary to manifest your best life.

Stay out of your comfort zone.

Comfort zones keep you safe and tend to stunt your personal growth. It’s alright to be in your comfort zone at times, but be sure to step out once in a while. Even if you feel a bit anxious, allow courage to rise and propel you forward. Start something brand new that you’ve been putting off, finish what you’ve started, and commit to give your best in every area of your life.

Be action oriented.

Plenty of people have goals in their mind or even written down, but they do not accomplish them because they do not take consistent action towards them. You must be action oriented in order to execute peak performance. Create an action plan for each goal that you desire and commit to taking those actions. Don’t let unfinished tasks wear you down, but close the loop on them. Get them done! You’ll soon find that when you follow through with these steps one by one, you make serious headway and before you know it, you’ve achieved your success.

When You Start to Enjoy Being Single, These 12 Things Will Happen

When You Start to Enjoy Being Single, These 12 Things Will Happen

Being single can make you weary, especially if you didn't initiate a breakup, it could be easy to get carried away with reminiscing and what-if scenarios. Staying caught up in the past is toxic to your growth, however, and interferes with your ability to move forward. Single life can be self-actualizing and enjoyable, but you need to embrace it first. No matter where you are on your journey in coming to terms with being single, the following 12 fantastic things will happen when you accept it.

Video Summary

1. You will be more focused.

    Once you start to treasure your new-found freedom, you will realize that taking time for yourself will show you what is most important in your life. Enjoying your single time will make what you want clearer and reveal which areas of your life you should build upon. Additionally, studies show that experiencing something alone results in our brain forming a more clear and longer lasting memory.

    2. You will be more active.

      Studies show that unmarried people are also more fit than their hitched counterparts. Let yourself welcome being single, and use this time to your benefit. You'll be more confident and in control when you do meet someone special.

      3. You will be more likely to have high goals.

        Being single means you can't settle. In case someone who captures your heart comes along, you need to be at the top of your game. By embracing your time being single, you will be more able to pursue your goals and work towards a more complete, fulfilling future.

        4. You will be more creative.

          Spending time alone is also linked to an increase in creative thinking. Spending more time alone will force you to be a deeper thinker, and could lead you to solutions and projects you wouldn't have thought of otherwise.

          5. Your schedule will be your own.

            Once you get past feeling lonely and realize how wonderful being single is, you will become aware of one of the best perks – your schedule is now completely your own. No longer do you need to have nights out approved, nor will long days at work get interrupted. Relax into loving your single life because nothing is quite as liberating as deciding every moment of your weekly schedule.

            6. You will likely save money.

              Dating is a great way to wave goodbye to all your hard earned cash. When you're with someone, there's nothing more important than impressing them, including your income. However, when the relationship fizzles, you realize how this tactic doesn't pay off. Not only are we more prone to spending when dating, married couples are more likely to have credit card debt than unmarried singles. So don't get depressed when you're eating cheap meals alone – it's really a form of investing in your future!

              7. You won't need to compromise on entertainment.

                Particularly if your significant other tends to have different tastes than you, being single can be a blessing. As soon as you can appreciate being single, you will realize how freeing it is to always watch exactly what you want. There is no longer any need to skimp on your favorite movies, plays, or TV shows that others don't appreciate.

                8. You will have more time for your family.

                  Another thing you will realize once you learn to relish being single is you now have much more time for family. Especially when it comes to older relatives, time spent with them truly is precious. Make the most of your single time by reconnecting with family members in your life you may have been neglecting.

                  9. You have more time for your friends.

                    Once you start basking in your single glory, you will also find that you have more time for your friends. Not only will increased free time let you reconnect with friends you may have neglected while being half of a couple, studies also show that married people have much weaker social lives than those who are unmarried.

                    10. You will find new haunts in your city.

                      Once you start to enjoy your single life again you will also find that you have plenty of time to rediscover your city. Where relationships see us fall into the same habit of favorite spots to drink, eat, or dance, when you're on your own you will naturally start to explore fresh venues again.

                      11. You'll find more interests.

                        Similarly, enjoying your time being single will give you more time to consider new hobbies and interests. Instead of repeating the same go-to dates, you can now freely explore activities that really make you passionate.

                        12. You will be more aware of what you want.

                          Ultimately, taking time to ourselves is an important ingredient in discovering what type of person is our ideal match, or what career we can happily commit to. By delighting in your uninhibited life, you are more able to experiment and thereby find out what works for you and what doesn't. Don't look at being single as a drawback, since learning more about yourself and finding out what makes you tick are crucial in forming balanced, healthy relationships in the future.
