It feels good. Life is getting exciting! My productivity has increased and I feel clear in what I’m doing and where I want to go.
Hi, you! I’m Diane and this is my first blog post as a certified High Performance Coach. People have been asking me if what I’m doing is related to sports, so I wanted to explain what I mean when I say High Performance. High Performance is an amazing time of life when you are consistently excelling and succeeding above your standard norms. Did you get the key word? It was “consistently!” High Performance isn’t a surprise, and anyone could have it with the right mindset and the right habits.
Getting a life coach is life changing in the best ways. After I started getting coached my life started to transform, and I’ll share with you the three foundations of High Performance while explaining how getting coached has affected my life.
It starts with FOCUS. I’ve been abundantly blessed that sometimes I’m in awe of what I experienced getting to this point. It’s been very important to me to pass it on and be generous and caring to the people I encounter. I realized my caring and generosity was very random. Now, I’m focusing my positive efforts towards other people in a way that is beneficial for me in the long run. I found a certain direction for my kind acts. This is very big for me because it made my efforts more sustainable. At this point in my life, I don’t want to be random anymore. I’m going for deliberate and decisive actions that benefit society, friends, family, and me.
Then to how much CONTROL you have over your own life. I opened my eyes to my personal power in 2008. Since then it’s been an amazing experience using the law of attraction and embracing the control I have over my environment, my actions, and my diet. Still, there have been many ups and downs as the human experience is very complex. Recently I took back control over my sleeping schedule. It was a funny moment that I had with myself when I realized that I am now an adult whose bed time is not dictated to me by my parents, a baby (I’m married, and do not have children), or any rule or establishment, and I have the power to choose the time I go to sleep (8 hours from the time I want to wake up).
The last foundation of High Performance is HABITS. There is a big difference in the habits of hugely successful people and everyone else. One of those habits is the amount of exercise they devote to their physical bodies each week. High Performance Institute found that the top 15% of those who identified themselves as High Performers exercised a minimum of 4 days a week. Today I find myself 2 years into a routine with minimal and inconsistent exercise. It’s a very different experience from the 2 years prior when I used to exercise daily. Coaching is helping me get consistent exercise back into my life by bringing to light why it is important to stay fit and work up a sweat at least 4 times a week.
Focus, level of Control, and Habits are the three foundations of a High Performance lifestyle. So, here are some questions for you to contemplate these ideas for yourself:
What are your 3 biggest goals in your personal/professional life for the next three months?
What is a common distraction for you and how can you mitigate it?
Is there an area of your life that you feel is out of control?
What is an area that you have been wanting to improve but have been avoiding?
What habits do you have that are supporting your health and success?
Are there any habits that you need to stop immediately or start immediately to reach your goals faster?
Thanks for reading. This is the beginning of my coaching journey as a High Performance Coach. Join me as I experience the high performance lifestyle and create more positive, impactful moments in life.
All the best,
High Performance Coach
