Expect winning results but do nothing, that is how most people go through life. To be a top world class athlete requires training and strengthening yourself to perform at extraordinary levels when you step up to perform. You need such internal power that you feel unstoppable, invincible and unbeatable, to face the relentless pressure and unpredictable changes that will try to destroy you. Michael Jordan is the best basketball player the world has ever seen. Was he born shooting baskets? No. He trained harder than anyone else to reach that level. How many people in business train hard before they go to the job?
A world class organisation consists of people that give personal excellence in all that they do. They perform at a first class level every day, regardless how they feel. They are committed to being the best of the best! Results talk for them, and they produce the results in a positive, fun and enjoyable way for all concerned.
As you and the other people you work with, come to understand that you have a natural born leader inside you waiting to be let free, you will start to perform at your best. When you all do your absolute best together, then your organisation will start and become its absolute best!
Illustriousness, greatness and eminence on the outside start from within. Before you unleash your peak performance at work or at play you first have to feel like you are doing that. You need world class mental toughness inside you, to face the competition and outclass them. To bring out the best in your co-workers you first have to bring out the best in yourself. You can’t lead others if you can’t lead yourself.
Decide to devote yourself to becoming so strong internally that you appear to others that you are failure-proof! Clean up your negative beliefs & false assumptions about the sort of leader you can become. Constantly strive to enrich your character, make your intentions purer and your actions better. Exercise to maintain a healthy body full of energy and radiate vitality.
To be the best of the best also requires you to clear up the emotional dimension of your life. You need to let go of the resentments you may be carrying and dump the baggage from your past. (If you give me 30 minutes I can help you eliminate the crap) This stuff is holding you back and preventing you from attaining your greatness! Also, a world class person works on his / her spiritual life, this is the connection to be polished so that you donate your best years at work to doing deeds that will last beyond your death. Life is over in the blink of an eye. We need to think about the legacy we leave behind, not on our death bed but NOW! That way you get to live your life backwards and make sure that it has a good ending. Instead of being on your death bed crying for more time! You have so much potential, wake up. This life is not a rehearsal. You are only here once and you cannot get the time back. So make the best of it. Get out of the coma. Realise what is most important in life. Actualize your potential, show leadership do your part to make the world better through the work you are doing and the person you are becoming.
At birth, you received fabulous talents, original insights to help improve things, and a corresponding responsibility to grow and express that genius over the course of your life. To elevate the lives of others around you in the process. Many people never figure this out and so they die unfulfilled. Every day you are alive, is another chance to push the envelope and stretch yourself to the maximum and to give everything all that you have. Hold nothing back. Then you can face the Creator and say I gave life, my all, with very few regrets. This is your gift back to Him. :) I say this is a smart way to live. What do you think? Until next time I wish you peace love and success. Martin Acton sensei
