Taking It To the Next Level

How to take your performance to the Next Level

Andrew & Dutch discuss the secret ingredient that all top performers mix into to their daily lives that boosts their results.

Hint: Take MASSIVE ACTION

Peak Performers surround themselves with folks that push and provoke each other into taking massive action.  These fellow performers strip away, refute and refuse any and all EXCUSES from each other.

Are you surrounded by people that will hold you accountable and refuse to accept your excuses for not taking action?

What would it take for you to surround yourself with those that will push and provoke you to higher levels of fulfillment and success? (Another hint: CLICK HERE FOR THE ANSWER)

What is the Outcome You Really Want?

Are YOU willing to the pay the price to get it?

outcome

Andrew, Qualk & Dutch, (WCCP The ROAR, 105.5 FM) discuss the process of how and why major decisions are made, like why 49ers linebacker Chris Borland would walk away from millions of dollars and a promising career after only one season.

Going into any situation, ALWAYS ask yourself, “What is the outcome I really want?”  After you give yourself an answer, follow up with, “Am I willing to make the sacrifices to get it?”

I don’t know Chris Borland, but I admire his clarity and mental toughness to walk through the honest assessment process and then make a clear cut decision.  ALL of us have the same option to make a choice, to go for the outcome we really want, once we have made the decision to pay the price to get it.

This honest assessment strategy is a handy tool to use in any context, whether it be dealing with relationships, career moves, fitness and nutrition, or buying a house or car.  Before entering the decision making arena, always know before hand what outcome you REALLY want.  Then calculate the price in physical, mental, emotional, social, and financial terms. Are you willing to pay that cost to get the outcome? If yes, then go for it. If not, then be prepared to settle for less.

 

Obstinate or Brilliant?

Marshawn Lynch – Is he just stubborn? Acting like a child? Or BRILLIANT?

obstinate or brilliant

 

Dutch, Qualk and Andrew tackle the Marshawn Lynch enigma on this Mental Toughness segment on Out of Bounds (WCCP 105.5 FM The Roar).

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN 

Andrew reveals how Marshawn Lynch is employing a brilliant critical thinking strategy, taking a past problem of shyness and difficulty communicating, even with teammates and turning it into a capital asset by:

1) Weighing the RISK/REWARD ratio – Fines are tax deductible with all checks written directly by the player to a charity directed by the NFL

2) He has a limited shelf-life as a running back

3) He needs to differentiate himself with a Unique Selling Proposition

4) The less he says, the more we want him to say and give him more attention (You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink – but you can SALT his OATS to make him thirsty)

The results are impressive, his Skittles ad, playing off of his media shyness goes instantly mega-viral, increasing his value as a celebrity endorser.

With good coaching, anyone can take problems or weaknesses and make them strengths – even turning being obstinate into brilliance.

Do You HATE Cheaters? Or Love ‘Em?

Don’t you just HATE Cheating and Cheaters?

cheaters

Before you answer that out loud, listen to Qualk, Dutch, and Andrew on Out of Bounds (WCCP 105.5 FM).

Also, let’s ask ourselves these questions:

Have I ever driven my car faster than the posted speed limit? (Even if it wasn’t knowingly or intentional)

Do I ALWAYS come to a complete stop at every STOP sign?

Have I ever “fudged” my height or weight at the DMV? (A legal government issued document)

Am I 100% compliant with the tax code? (Do I know the entire tax code? and if not, can I say I am 100% compliant for sure?)

For all the folks calling for people to be suspended, banned, or disqualified and are talking about game “integrity”, how about we reflect a minute or two before saddling up on that Clydesdale.

I was in Amman, Jordan the day Bin Laden was killed and I heard the exact (and I mean EXACT) same things being said on Al Jazeera about the United States:

Americans cheated, they used torture, they stole documents, they listened in on phone calls, they violated treaties, those cheating Navy SEALS invaded Pakistani sovereign territory, they broke into a house and killed an unarmed man. YOU CHEATERS!

For the record, I LOVE cheaters! And if on any level, you enjoy your life, your liberties and your ability to pursue whatever happiness means to you, then you love them too. So just maybe we can put that high horse back in the barn…
