WHAT I LEARNT: BRENDON BURCHARD’S HIGH PERFORMANCE HABITS LESSONS!
Can you imagine it took me 3 weeks to complete the High Performance Habits book…Okay okay more like 5 weeks. ?
Only because I took mob notes, did the home work diligently, kept going back and forth, highlighted the heck out of it…Gosh this book is a full Course on how to Reboot Your Life and Focus on Building Success. Whatever that Means for you!
And I just want to say . Don’t wait for another minute…Yes, it is that powerful!
Let me ask you a question: Are you stuck in your brain, thinking you don’t have or cannot offer anything of value to anyone? Maybe you think you couldn’t be successful like other people? while I cannot answer those questions for you, I can say this book just might!
So, my friend, you better get your copy and read that book like already!
Because you deserve more. And your life is a result of the habits you have formed thus far. The good news is, cliched as it may sound:
You can literally Quantum Jump into the person you have always wished to be if you APPLY the lessons Brendan Burchard teaches in this book.
The lessons are about:
How Extraordinary People Become Extraordinary Through Their Habits
The Theme and Ethos throughout the High Performance Habits book is simple…Note that I didn’t say it’s easy…
You are a product of your daily habits.
And let me clarify that Brendon focuses on 6 habits that are apparently the key to your success in the book! These are:
For you to succeed. You must bring your A Game and daily develop and improve in each and every single habit above.
High Performance Habits Lessons: CHANGE YOUR HABITS, CHANGE YOUR LIFE
Did you know, I first learnt about Brendon from Ray Higdon, a coach I respect and love? I started following Brendon’s facebook page and I noticed he always ends his message with three words:
Live. Love. Matter
I also kept reading more and more content and watching his YouTube Videos. And some of the things Brendon keeps pointing out are that:
The common things that successful people have are their habits and principles.
It’s from our principles that we form our core values, we create and implement them into our life habits, and these can be bad or good habits.
The unfortunate thing is that the vast majority of people fall into bad habits more, and they may stay like that for many years. It then gets harder for them to change/replace their habits with more life enhancing and useful ones.
In the beginning, I actually listened to High performance Habits via a Podcast and training from Brendon Burchard!
Listening to this book got me thinking, I WANT the paperback, for I want to highlight particular sections, and look back days later when I see the change and mark the day on the page…It’s that incredible and its read by this amazing global speaker and coach, I highly recommend it.
When I got the book I was so glad I did and One of the First thin gs I did was take Brendon’s High Performance Indicators Assessment (HPI). I tell you, if you wish to create any kind of success in anything, you want to take the test. You can do so on his site here.
Below are 4 of the results from my test which by the way came out at 4.27 out of 5
My Necessity score, was the biggest driver for my starting a Community of Entrepreneurs where I show Up DAILY to serve in the best way I can today! Lovingly called “The WeDnation” because I see it growing into a Nation of Global entrepreneurs.
They are creating results and changing lives worldwide in their families, communities, by Winning. For when you win, so many other people win too.
My Productivity Score really shocked me, I thought I would come out around the same as my Clarity Score...It was a huge wake up call.
I have since streamlined my activities better and started to notice where I was bleeding time and being “busy” as opposed to “Productive.”
Today, I take my self care more seriously too. I used to work until I couldn’t stay awake. All hours burning the midnight oil!
Thing is there will always be more stuff to be done. And once I allowed that to sink into my soul, now I go to bed earlier.
This is self love, and it allows my body to regroup, recover, mend and of course dream better for tomorrow. I also get to wake up earlier, which makes my day pop!
Also ask yourself, are you working so hard so you can pay more doctors later as your body breaks down from all the abuse you give it, in the name of Hard work and building wealth?
Your HEALTH is your WEALTH, never forget that!
So thank you Brendon for this kick up my backside.Are you working so hard so you can pay more doctors later as your body breaks down #SelfCare #SelfHelp
So, what Lessons have I learnt?
Just last week I was talking about some habits that one can develop to ensure they attain the change they deserve in a Private community, the Winning Entrepreneurs Den because whether we are aware of it or not, We create our reality by the habits we form.
Allow me to share a wee bit of what I have learnt from both personal experience and was surprised to find in the book. I also shared in the Den, I hope can help you too in your life and or career/business.
#1. Often what keeps people stuck, at least it did me for years, is that I kept comparing myself to other people. Where I was and where they are, without looking at their “has been”.
You too may be looking at other successful people and doubting your own ability to create the same success or even greater…Everyone can do, be and have whatever they Build the right habits for ?Everyone can do, be and have whatever they Build the right habits for
#2. Your success boils down to the habits that you develop consistently over time for that purpose! It has nothing to do with where you were born. Or what special gift you were born with.
I see so much talent, skill, gifts going to waste due to a lack of Discipline to form the right habits!
#3. Those who have achieved a high level of success have become great at being consistent with specific HABITS.
#4. Your success will have everything to do with being INTENTIONAL with your time as it pertains to life and business. ? Listen my friend…Were you taught that “time is money”? A big fat lie, see….
Time = Life… #dropsmic
I too used to think time is money, after all my teachers said it every day! My mom said it, some people I look up to still say it!
Thank goodness, today I know My time equates to my life! And what I do with it determines how I live NOW and hopefully tomorrow.
#5. Success has nothing to do with luck (we create our own), good genes, inherited bla bla,…It all comes back to forming the habits that will create the results you want to see … You have to Become the CHANGE you Wish to SEE.
“To change what You see, Change What you See!”
You wake up daily and wash your face, brush your teeth, get dressed. You don’t think about it, you formed these habits!
In the same way, to create success, you have to form new habits. You need to embed them into your life, you become them…AND Release any emotional attachment to doing them so that you allow the results to flow to you naturally! Just like breathing in and out. You dont force it, you dont think about it…Unless you have a blocked nose…!To change what You see, Change What you See!
#6. Here is the kicker, I too was the same, that’s how I know THE TRUTH… That;
Most people like the idea of success but very few appreciate or even want to put in the work to achieve it!
Thats why, I stalled for the longest. And maybe you are in that place too! Its why many don’t grow, and continue to be “Leaning Junkies as well.” The action raises the biggest resistance for most people because they look at it as a chore, as opposed to being a natural part of growth and life…like breathing!
So many spew the “Knowledge is power” lie! You don’t believe me, just go to social media, lets stick with facebook: Go to the Search bar and just type that phrase…See what you get. I’ll wait ?
Did you do it? See, what I mean?
Most of these people dont understand the whole concept. They forget that until Focused ACTION is taken, Knowledge is not power or wealth. Libraries would be the richest entities! ?Knowledge is not power or wealth. Libraries would be the richest entities
#7. By the way, you will have to Do Stuff you have never done before, right?
I have never let that be my excuse for not doing something. That’s why I started Blogging, Building websites, Coaching, Network Marketing etc…All unknown to me circa 2013.
- Today, I am recognized in the blog space as an authority blogger.
- I am recognised as a Pinterest expert by other experts.
- I am a high performance coach building to global scale!
So, I say; Commit to developing the High-Income Skill set, and knowledge you need to build your version of success. APPLY that knowledge to your life, Take MASSIVE action to practice the skill, until the world cannot ignore you and pays for the privilege to learn/work with from you!
Keep refreshing your knowledge in that thing that you want to use to create success. Could be Pinterest Marketing, Blogging, Video marketing, Prospecting and Closing, Public Speaking, Writing books, etc.
- YES, it takes work, but it’s so worth it
- YES, you will meet challenges, but hey, it’s worth it…
- AND yes, you will feel like quitting, Ha winners never quit …. Why?
Because they Remember WHY they started, The END GOAL and keep going coz they aint there yet! ?
