Breaking Dread: How To Take On A Daunting Task

By | entrepreneurship, Goal Setting, high performance, leadership, mental toughness, mindset, productivity | No Comments

Let’s face it: we all have things in life we’d rather avoid. Call it putting off the pain, delaying the dread or just flat-out procrastination, there comes a time in everyone’s life when we have to saddle up and get the job done.

And it’s especially true for High-Performers.

Whether it’s that tough workout at the crack of dawn, the big proposal to the ideal client or filing taxes, we can either choose to stagnate and stall out or face the music and dance.

But how do we attack those things we dread?
And how can we mange the daunting tasks better, get them done more efficiently and with better results?

Join me for a deep dive on how to attack your most dreaded missions with confidence and intensity in a way that leaves you with more time (and energy) to enjoy the best parts of your day.

In this episode, we deep dive into:

  • The power of the “big picture” and how stepping back to see it might just save your bacon
  • Why snap judgements and preconceived notions can sabotage your progress
  • How smashing things to pieces might just accelerate your results
  • What happens when you try to focus on too much at once (and ONE thing you should obsess over instead)
  • and more…

The Relentless Commitment To Improvement

By | entrepreneurship, Goal Setting, high performance, leadership | No Comments

There are lots of slick and sexy platitudes out there, like “Commitment To Excellence” and “Dedicated To Greatness”. And what book/course/seminar on achievement would be complete with the buzz words “next level” interspersed throughout the ad copy?

The reality is that excellence, greatness and mastery all come over time. And not just the passage of time, but the application of consistent, focused effort with a singular intention: steady improvement.

But what does it take to turn consistent action into measurable growth? And how can we apply ourselves to daily improvement in order to render the results (and the excellence/greatness/mastery that we are so obsessed with)?

Join me for this week’s discussion on The High-Altitude Mentorship Show™.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • The danger of ‘perfect’ and what the “better” option is
  • Why “overnight” success is a farce, and how incremental improvement trumps rapid growth
  • How speed isn’t always the best option (and why sustainability is more important)
  • Why boosting your performances is great, but elevating your baseline is key 
  • and more…

Remember: Results are great, but improvement is crucial to sustainable success.

The 4 Most Important Things To Focus On In The New Year

By | entrepreneurship, Goal Setting, high performance, mental toughness, mindset, productivity | No Comments

Pink sand pouring through hourglass

By now, it should go without saying that Leaders, Champions and High-Performers of all types do NOT set New Years resolutions. Why would they?

They are committed to excellence, not folly.
They are focused on winning, not just participating.
They are serious about growth and improvement, not futility.
And they rely on strategy and technique, not happenstance.

So it goes without saying that in order to really catapult your game to the next altitude, it requires much more than fanciful dreams and wishy-washy tactics.

Listen to today’s episode on The High-Altitude Mentorship Show™ for an end-of-the-year conversation on the 4 areas to focus on to make the 2017 your best year yet.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The difference between declaring commitment and being committed
  • How certainty leads to better performance (and how to be more certain about your goals)
  • The “secret” weapon of high-achievers, and how you can implement it daily
  • The power of collaboration, how it works and why it might be the theme for 2017
  • and more…

The End of Guilt And Shame

By | entrepreneurship, Goal Setting, mental toughness, mindset | No Comments

Life’s too short to live in misery. And no matter what your station in life is, we all experience our fair share of challenges and frustrations.

It’s our responsibility to live life full out and to bring the best of what we have every day. But there is perhaps one behavior that nearly every person feels at one point and it does absolutely nothing to move us forward.

That’s the emotion of guilt and shame.

Join me on The High-Altitude Mentorship Show™ for a challenging conversation on not just the damage that guilt and shame can do, but how to get away from it and live free of it.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How owning our mistakes is the path to emotional freedom
  • The power of forgiveness and why it’s a two way street
  • Why you should stop obsessing over what other people think
  • The power of recognizing your own value and how it crushes shame and guilt
  • The highest form of love and how it creates a no-fly zone to fear
  • What the grinch can teach us about the perils playing the blame and shame game
  • And more…

The Greatness Project

By | entrepreneurship, Goal Setting, high performance, leadership | No Comments

49458600 - excellence

Greatness, like a fine wine, requires time to cultivate and refine. It doesn’t happen overnight, and in most cases, it comes as the byproduct of a passage through the gauntlet of challenge, risk, sacrifice and commitment.

And this applies to virtually any field of endeavor: athletics, business, music, art…it even applies to discovering our passions in life.

But sadly, the seduction of the promise of overnight success that seems to run rampant in our society, can trip up even the most focused and driven achiever.

Instead, it should be approached as a process, if not a project, to develop and refine our own greatness.

Join JT for an in-depth conversation on what it takes to cultivate the best in yourself…and others.

We’ll discuss:
– The power and importance of chasing YOUR vision (instead of someone else’s)
– Why “playing the dumps and dives” can be a necessary rite of passage to excellence
– How recognizing and appreciating your own talent trumps the acknowledgement from others
– Why “ready” is a myth (and how you are likely more ready than you think)
– Why hammering your craft every day is so crucial to paving the way to greatness
– The power of humility (and how it can accelerate your performance)
– and much more…

Tune in and get ready to launch your own greatness project.
