Hey Team!

Hope you guys had a great weekend!

This was a good one for me..

Spending time with the family...

Trip to see my brother in Pennsylvania... 

And just some good time to unplug and get some exercise in.... (to counteract a few extra carbos!)...

But as I was on my daily walk, I got thinking....

What are the "secret ingredients" behind the performances of some of the greatest performers in the world?

What allows them to go out and compete at the highest level each day?

And... thinking back on my career in PRO SPORTS, it became clear...

An immense amount of time preparing.. training... anticipating...

Not one player I know ever just "showed-up" and wished for a great performance...

The amount of time these guys put in, year round, getting their bodies and minds ready for competition was incredible...

The easy part was playing...

All of the training, practice, focus on clearing & simplifying mindset is the backbone of their performance...

The fact that so much time went into preparation is what allowed the players to "trust themselves" and have confidence in their play...

But then I got thinking even deeper...

How come LEADERS of Companies are not that committed? 

How come EXECUTIVES of Companies are not that committed?

How come EMPLOYEES of Companies looking to climb the ladder and better their lives are not that committed?

How could you possibly expect consistent greatness if you do not have a routine? You do not prepare for each day the same way each day... the same way an athlete would prep the same way before each day to ensure a positive performance?

Have these people not looked at their game of business like that of sport?

Do they not realize how important it is to "train for the sport of business"?

Why don't most get it?

I believe most have not been taught...

That lack of CONSISTENT ROUTINE is costing some millions.. some hundreds of thousands.. and all are losing their CONFIDENCE for not having a routine...

Routines provide confidence... Routines lead to consistent results... Consistent results lead to success....

And most importantly... routines lead to reduced stress, pressure, and anxiety.... because it is very hard to have confidence with the triple threat of stress, pressure, and anxiety barking up your tree....

What is your routine?

Are you consistent?

Do you make excuses?

Do you say you are committed... yet it only lasts for a few days before your flame burns out and you are back to your old ways?

We are all after success.. so let's go get it via consistent routines....

Stop making excuses... 

Realize if you are "failing" at the above it is because of your commitment level... you are interested but not committed... let's work to change that...

If you need help... let me know!
