2014 BLOG – DAY 50 :: think gold

19 Feb

As you know, this year is dedicated to peak performance. And I have been looking and searching to uncover some of the best techniques to get to peak performance — personally.

I have been reading and scanning and watching and listening. One of the best actionable pieces of advice I have found so far is this:  THINK GOLD.

What does that mean?
Well, for starters, it asks what is your big dream, your huge goal, (your promise!), your gold standard, your Olympic moment?

I found this technique in the jammed-packed motivational book The Champion’s Mind. The technique inspires you to clearly outline what your big moment of achievement is, and while it is focused on athletes the wisdom can be shared with the rest of us.

How does it work?
It’s all packed into two words. A simple phrase: “Think Gold.”

1) Can’t get out of bed in the morning? Say to yourself “Think Gold.”
2) Going through the motions without passion? “Think Gold.”
3) Ready to throw in the towel? “Think Gold.”

In the key moments where peak performance meets the demands of daily life, the phrase “think gold” will remind you of what you really want. The intent is to inspire you to get up, keep going, and push through because you remember what’s at stake.

Does it work?
I can wholeheartedly say that for a consecutive three days, YES! It works. I’m only three days into this, but it has me up early, on time, on task and on target with my daily goals.

Worth a try?
I think so.
Let me know if you want to play along.

Tomorrow I will share my ideal day with you.
Until then…. Think. Gold.

More tomorrow.
