Why Being Around Other Achievers Can Make You A Better Performer This Year

5 Things I Learned After Attending an Event for High Performers Recently

A powerful lesson I learned early on in my career is we become like the people we spend most of our time with.

I remember when I first emigrated to Australia, I spoke with a Fijian accent, as that’s where I’m originally from. Within two or three years, my accent changed to an Australian accent because I was around people who spoke that way.

This is why it’s often suggested that the best way to learn a new language is to travel to a country where it’s the predominant language spoken so we are forced to adapt quickly in order to be able to communicate effectively.

Likewise, if we want to become better performers, whether it’s in sports, our work, our businesses, or life in general, being around other people who are also committed to becoming better performers will greatly accelerate our progress and our personal growth.

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to attend an event called High Performance Academy, hosted by Brendon Burchard, the author of numerous best-selling books, including his most recent one titled, High Performance Habits.

The event exceeded my expectations so I’d like to share some of the things I learned being around other high performers.

5 Hard Truths To Face If You Want To Be More Successful This Year

Crucial Things to Be Aware of as You Strive to Achieve Your Goals

It’s quite easy to drift along in life, doing the same things over and over, hoping we’ll achieve new results and become more successful in the process.

Sometimes we get caught up doing daily trivial things that we lose sight of what’s truly important and what we want to achieve.

The truth is that if we want to be more successful, we have to take new action and also do things better. Becoming more successful will require us to use more of our skills, talents and abilities, and tap into resources within that we’ve not utilised fully.

When I self-published my first book, Hoops and Freedom, it was a real challenge as I have never done it before. While I was happy I had achieved my goal of becoming a published author, I was disappointed that I was not able to get my books into the hands of more people.

In order to have better success as an author, I had to face some truths and also do things differently next time.

5 Destructive Myths About Setting Goals For A New Year

At the start of each year, it is very common to start making New Year’s resolutions or set new goals so that we can give ourselves the best chance of having the kind of year we want to have.

There are differences between setting New Year’s resolutions and goals and it is very important to know what they are.

I believe setting goals are a lot more beneficial and effective than setting resolutions however, there are some common myths about setting goals that must be addressed.

If we are not aware of these myths, they can:

  • Cause us to miss our goals.
  • Slow our progress or even keep us stuck.
  • Result in us setting the wrong goals.

12 Powerful Life Lessons I Learnt After An Evening With Oprah

A few nights ago, I had the opportunity to listen to Oprah Winfrey share part of her journey and some of the lessons she has learnt in life at an event in Sydney called, An Evening with Oprah.

Being able to see Oprah live, in person, had been on my bucket list so it was very exciting to finally have had that opportunity. And I wasn’t disappointed!

Oprah shared many stories from her past during her one-hour and 45-minute talk, which she described as her way to help us turn up the volume on who we are, figure out our passions, our purpose, our mission and our visions, and to step into the life that is waiting for us.
