We may not be preparing for a NBA title or any national stage, but we do have events that are no less important to us. Maybe it’s educational, professional, or personal.
When it’s time to go to battle for something that really matters, there are a couple things you can do to be world-class and deliver.
1.) Get Clarity on What You Want.
How do you want to perform, or what outcome do you want? For example, I want to place in the Top 3. Or I want to get a certain job or promotion. Clarity is the first step in going after and getting what’s important to you.
2.) Believe it Will Happen.
In other words, ‘Proceed as if success is inevitable.’ You may have to be an actor or an actress because you may not believe what you want is 100% possible. Did For example, if you believe you can place in the top 3 or get that job promotion, you will start to search out ways to get better. It fuels confidence! Your mindset is SO important when it comes to making progress. Rather than ‘fake it until you make it’, you should ‘fake it until you become it’! Here is something that may help. It’s app called ThinkUp (http://thinkup.me) that I use and that my clients use. It’s changed my relationships and my business, so I would love for you to check it out. There is a free and a paid version for a nominal fee. Here is the link if you want to check it out, http://apple.co/2rymDk8.
3.) Get Focused on the One Thing.
Identify the one thing that’s most important for you to do your best that you have control over. I can’t reiterate enough. When it comes to knocking it out of the park, you need to have control. Anything else is a distraction. For example, if you are in a race, maybe you need to remain calm steady. If you have a big presentation maybe you need to enunciate or keep eye contact. If you are a little nervous or worried, always go back to a deep belly breath or two to clear the slate for what you have control over.
Big or small, we all have events in our lives that matter to us. With all the time and effort we spend, we deserve to crush these moments and be happy and proud with our efforts. If you can gain clarity, believe you can, and get laser focused when it’s your turn to shine, you will be on your way to being world-class.

Do you feel like everything is catching up with you?
Overwhelmed by your current schedule and possibly underwhelmed by the progress you’re making on initiatives that matter to you?
It’s definitely that time of year, and you are not alone. The good news is that you can have a "mini intervention" with yourself, your schedule, and the impact you’re having, so you can feel less overwhelmed and more in control and on purpose. You’ll likely be more fun to be around too:)
This "Get to Know Yourself" questionnaire will help you next-level your understanding of who you are and what’s important to you. You’ll be looking from a perspective that may be unfamiliar, but this can be a catalyst to ignite momentum and inspire consistent action.
