Set a guiding principle, lift your game and your focus.
Hey, it’s Rand,
What’s your transformational question?
For the Greek mythological hero, Odysseus, the question was,“Where is true home?”
This became his guiding principle as he laboured, day in day out, on his epic quest.
To exponentialize your performance you need to set that guiding principle and take one small step forward, and then another, and before you know it, you will have established something unique that the world has never seen.
Your transformational question will kickstart your passion and provide the impetus to take that first step.
Odysseus didn’t answer his transformational question overnight and neither will you. It will take hard work, long hours and persistence.
To remain in pursuit of your goal set smaller milestones that you can achieve each year, as making progress in 2 to 3 things at a time will prevent you from feeling stuck.
What is your first milestone?
You also need to make a psychological shift and step up into the ranks of elite performer,
which requires being very deliberate with the things you’re saying and doing. It also requires you to not have to prove yourself or come across as trying too hard, and you need to feel like you belong, you need to feel that you are entitled to be where you are.
Can you find your authentic and unique voice?
Think of yourself as a force. Can you visualise this force?
How strong is it?
As you settled in for the long haul?
That’s good, but don’t settle in too much or you will create ruts. If you don’t push yourself hard enough you will become too comfortable and dig a deeper and deeper rut that will be very hard to escape from.
Don’t expect to feel 100% secure. if you’re not somewhat scared you will become complacent and your inspiration will wane.
Is the fear always there?
How strong is it?
Exponentializing requires you to lift your game and focus. Reduce the things that you don’t need, create a solid core of who you are, both as a person and as an elite performer, and become aware of any compulsions or rabbit holes.
By focusing on what you fundamentally believe to be important you can avoid being sucked into one of these rabbit holes.
What are you doing to ensure you actively engage in your journey?
Are you sure you aren’t leaving anything to chance?
Listen to your self talk. Is it your worst critic? Do you constantly engage in negative thought patterns? Visualise yourself on a higher level and create the right thinking patterns to get you there.
Lastly, remember that what you put in, is what you get out and ensure you optimise your inputs. get the right level of nutrients from your diet, breathe deeply to optimise your oxygen intake.
The more physically active you are, the more focus you will have. And sleep more so you can build both body and mind muscle.
