Had another inspiring workshop this past weekend with some of my favourite high-performance family members. We learned about all the latest and greatest neuroscientific brain training tools for overcoming obstacles to performance success.
The first thing I always do when hosting a workshop of any kind is congratulate the participants for being there.
Why congratulate them you ask?…
I congratulate them for making the space for change. Showing up on a Saturday, investing an hour of that precious free time towards their personal development and growth is, after all, the marker of a high-performance psychology.
Let me explain.
The natural thing for us all to do on a Saturday is what comes easy and what feels good in the moment-lounging around watching tv, shopping, eating out, etc. Unfortunately short-term payoff decisions like that don’t do anything to get you to the next level of your performance.
The marker of a high-performance psychology is someone who makes space for the change they seek. Someone who puts their PD (personal development) time into the schedule is clearly committed to the short-term pain decision (the seemingly harder decision) that promises long-term gains down the line.
In this week’s ‘MoMonday Video: Make Space for Change (click here to watch)’, I share with you how this performance-enhancing strategy is guaranteed to generate big results.
Remember, you can tell a lot about what you value and what is most important to you by how you invest your valuable resources-your time, energy, money and focus. If you are neglecting making space for the change you seek, how important is that result to you?
Growth and development of any kind requires focused time and energy invested in you and improving your psychology. If you are failing to create enough space for change, don’t expect change to occur.
Until next time, make every performance count!
