6 Things to Help You Become a High-Performer

You don’t have to settle for an average performance; you can become a high performer. To do so, you’ll need to pay attention to a few things. I have listed 6 of the things that will make a big difference in your pursuit of higher performance.

The people whose you admire for their performance are flesh and blood like you. However, they’ve done a few things to help them perform at a high level. You can do those things as well.

1. Set Goals

Goals give you direction. They tell you where you should put your efforts. Also, the right goals push you to stretch beyond your comfort zone and to discover the uncharted territories of your potential. In that, goals allow you to raise the bar continually. High performance requires that you set goals that push you to grow.

2. Stay Focus

To perform at the highest level, you must focus. You can’t allow distraction to take you off course. There are no substitutes for focus. Many talented people under-performed because they can concentrate their efforts on what matters most. They spread themselves too thin. As a result, they can’t master anything. High-performance demands focus.

3. Show Consistency

Inconsistency leads to small results. To build momentum, you need consistency. And when you have momentum, you can reach peak performance. It’s not enough to start; you must maintain. When others get distracted and sidetracked, you remain consistent, like a tortoise that outruns a hare.

4. Show Perseverance

High performers don’t give up when they face obstacles and setbacks. They refuse to be deterred. When an obstacle stands in their way, they press through or find a way around it. When they fall, they pick themselves up and keep going. They don’t give up when the going gets tough.

5. Store Energy

Without fuel, the car goes nowhere. Without energy, there’s not much you can do, let alone perform at the highest level. High performance demands a good dose of energy. Therefore, you must take care of you and guard your energy diligently. Eat well. Drink water. Exercise. Sleep. Do all you need must to keep your energy tank full.

6. Seek Accountability

For me, accountability is a performance enhancer. When you set up accountability systems in your life, you increase your performance. For example, when you know that someone will hold you accountable if you don’t show up to the meeting or the gym, you’ll make sure you show up–even if you don’t feel like it.

Pay attention to these six things: set goals, stay focus, show consistency, show perseverance, store energy, and seek accountability. When you do, your performance will never be the same; it will skyrocket.
