(Scroll below to view the video)

I am SO excited to share a sneak peek from my upcoming book, "ZONED IN: The Mental Toughness Required for a World-Class YOU!"

The content of the book was inspired in part by your questions, input, struggles and triumphs. My intention for ZONED IN is to be a mindset guide, manifesto and call to action, so it empowers you to take even more consistent bold action towards whatever is most important right now (your personal Olympics.)

The book starts with an exercise in reflection using the "Ambition Checkpoint Questionnaire."

How to GAIN CLARITY for Your Next Big Move

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

Sometimes our dreams and aspirations are a little mismatched with our efforts.

Full transparency... I was called out on this one by my mentor this past January. Don’t get me wrong I was working hard and extremely busy. There was something missing when it came to how I was approaching my next level of success. I had next-leveled my ambitions, but how I spent my time was the same. My ambitions were not aligned with the next level of success I wanted (and knew I deserved.) This worked for a while, but the next level would require me to "go pro."

Once I made the necessary adjustments and fine-tuned some key habits, that’s when the next level was attainable.

We’ve talked about where you fall on the ladder. But what are your current circumstances now, and what level of commitment are you willing to have?

The Real Secret for Leveraging Mental Toughness to Rock Disruption

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

We all face the threat of someone or something disrupting our status quo.

The mere thought of disruption can be paralyzing or it can be a secret weapon. It’s all in your mindset and what you choose to do with it.

Here’s one tip to leverage Mental Toughness to rock disruption so you can get aggressive today about planning how to rise above the rest tomorrow: Keep this in mind, and you’ll be on your way to using a tool you already have in a way that most people don’t know about.

Here’s how: Use fear to drive progress.

In order to foster creativity, productivity and courage it’s important to use this emotion to your benefit rather than to your detriment. Fear can be paralyzing or it can be a super power. It depends on your mindset, how you perceive it.

Here’s a great sequence for transitioning fear into a super power for you:

1.)  Recognize a potential threat and its...

3 Steps to Build the Influence You Want and Deserve

 

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

There is a misconception about influence that it is reserved for the elite few or for those in positions of authority.

We all have ideas, feelings and wisdom that deserve to be heard AND that may have a profound impact on others. I almost look at it as an obligation. Whether you feel like you are influential or not, you can learn to become more influential, and it starts with gaining an influential mindset.

Keep in mind that you believe what you consistently tell yourself, so use your internal voice wisely! You may have to be an actor or actress in the beginning.

I DON'T mean "fake it until you MAKE it."

I DO mean, "fake it until you BECOME it."

The first step to gaining the influence at work OR at home, is to believe that what you desire is possible.

Fortunately, there's a great tool you can use to do just that! It's a positive affirmations app that myself and my 1:1 clients...

Have you taken the Mental Toughness Quiz? If not, NOW would be a great time. This is just a quick snapshot to see where you are in a couple key areas of Mental Toughness.

 

If you've already taken the quiz, I honor you for investing time to learn about your mindset in certain situations.

Either way, I have a quick question! Have you ever prepared relentlessly for a competitive event, a presentation or even an important conversation only to show up and NOT deliver?

As a student, young athlete and working professional, I had more than a few memorable struggles of my own, and I don’t wish the frustration and disappointment on anyone. This is why I’ve spent the last two decades studying, researching and working with world-class performers, so YOU don’t have to experience what I did. It’s also why it is SO important for me to share this outstanding worksheet that I normally reserve for my 1:1 and group...

(Scroll to the bottom to view the video.)

We all face the threat of someone or something disrupting our status quo. The mere thought of disruption can be paralyzing or it can be a secret weapon. With the proper mindset and tools, you (or your team) can take control to use disruption as a superpower.

  1. Developing the proper mindset is a vital component when it comes to planning for disruption. One of the biggest challenges as businesses, industries and roles are changing is: ‘How do I expand my tool belt to be as prepared as possible?’ The answer to this question starts with being confident in what’s possible and having the mindset to make...
