What is Optimum Performance?
By Dr. Jamie Fettig
What optimum performance truly is and what it can do for you.
Have you ever thought about how much better you could be doing in your business or career?
What about your relationship with someone you love or the state of your health right now?
I have to admit that at any point in my life, one or more of these areas needs more attention than I give it.
There seems to be so much to do, so much to accomplish if 'more' is the focus.
Let me suggest that the quest for more is a trap. It never stops.
Optimum performance is about playing life at the highest possible level.
If we are so full of potential, then why are most of us not living up to that potential in every area of our life?
There are a couple of very good reasons that make perfect sense and we'll start with desire, passion and fun.
Do you remember when you were a kid and all you wanted to do was play?
What was one thing you loved to do that you could do for hours and never want to stop?
Ask yourself why?
If you are like me, then it's because it was fun and exciting and you felt good doing it. It made you happy and you never wanted to stop doing it until you dropped.
We all knew that we could get hurt running, playing, and challenging ourselves. But the reward of having fun, feeling free and the sense of accomplishment was worth the price.
We were born natural risk takers back then. What happened and why is it relevant to optimum performance?
Part of the reason you enjoyed what you did was the 'positive feedback' you received from others.
The other more important part is because it was what you wanted to do. It didn't really matter how 'good' you were. The 'how good' was secondary to just having fun.
It was the times you chose to do what you wanted that was the most fun and exhilarating. It wasn't when someone else said you needed to do or should do something.
Optimum performance can only truly be achieved when 'all of you' is in the game. And believe me, life is just a game. You loved playing as a kid and it's time to start playing again.
Just going through the motions in your relationship is so mediocre and not fun. Working in a job or career that you tolerate is not fun. Not earning the income you want is not fun. Not having the energy or health you want is not fun.
What's NOT FUN in your life right now?
So the real question you are now faced with is this...do you want to have fun again? Do you want to play?
How great would the results be in each area of your life if it were fun again? Well it can be...and will be!
Do not confuse having fun with not putting in effort. You will achieve results in every area of your life in direct proportion to the effectiveness of the effort you put in, not the effort. Do not confuse activity with results.
In the coming months my focus will be to help you think about WHY you are getting the current results that in your life right now and how to significantly enjoy yourself more, so that the results are the by-product of having fun and doing what you love and want to do.
The game of life is about choosing what you really want. The real trick in having more is in becoming more and having fun. It is natural to grow and become more, when we do what we love and what we want.
Optimum performance is about doing the 'right things' really well.
