All the time I’ve been executive coaching I’ve been observing the things that drive people forward to major achievement,.
And it all comes down to 3 things.
Those things are Purpose, Passion and Pride.
Let me explain what each one of those mean…
Every peak performer who has a job, runs a company or owns one truly believes that what they do is important and their purpose is to deliver their service or product to the people they meet.
And that’s not just so they can make sales.
Their purpose is to make a difference in everyone’s lives. By having their service or product they believe to their core that they will help someone be better.
That’s certainly what I believe and that’s why I’m so truly committed to coaching companies to peak performance too. And why I have my role on my business card as “Business Enthusiast.”
So you feel you know your purpose and that you live it?
Life is short. Just doing a job, or going through the motions for the weekend means you’re wasting 5 days of your life every week.
You really need to feel that what you do is something you’d actually do whether you got paid or not.
How do recognise it. Look at what you love doing. Listen to yourself speaking, what is it that makes you impassioned, raise your voice or become more passionate. Ask other people you trust, they often see your passion peaking out where you may not.
Whatever it is make sure you’re either doing it now or you have a short route to get to start doing it. And sometimes that means doing it alongside your current job for a while.
Pride is a much misunderstand emotion. After all we’re taught that it comes before a fall aren’t we?
That is really arrogance.
What I’m talking about is in the internal pride of knowing that you’ve done the very best that you can do.
It’s knowing that you have delivered the best service, made the best product that you possibly can.
It’s knowing that whilst you always improve yourself, at this moment you’ve done the very best for your customer, client, friend, family or stranger!
Get the 3 P’s working together and you’re going to reach peak performance. Come and join me at the peak and I’ll tell you how I found peak performance with my passion and purpose.
