Andy Albright hosted The Alliance's Activity podcast live from his office at The Alliance's headquarters in Burlington, N.C.
The main topic of today's call was about achieving your peak performance and helpings other people do the same thing.
Whatever we think about is the direction we are headed in. When you get so focused on what you are doing that you don't notice all the distractions around you then you will get to where you want to be. It might not happen as fast as you would like, but it will happen.
There are three keys to Peak Performance: How to improves yours, how to improve theirs and how to measure improvement.
Setting simple goals, working on specific tasks and taking deliberate measures are how you cut through the clutter and get things you want now. When you do that, you will get the results you want sooner.
Always be thinking intentionally. Be simple, clear, deliberate and definite about what you need to do. If you need to make 27 phone calls then make 27 phone calls. To do well with The Alliance, you need to do one thing: sell, recruit and build.
The Three C's
Commitment - the more committed you are, the more creative you are about making things happen. The more determined you are, the more you are able to focus on the task at hand.
Completion - There are endorphins in your body that get released when you are "all in." Doing 90 percent is average. Average performance gets you average results. Crazy will get you crazy. The more specific things you have, the more you get done. This is not a "get things done" discussion, but instead it is about getting your subconscious to get to work. This will activate "miracles" in your life.
Closure - Anything that is not done in your life should be knocked out now. Get to it.
Don't let alibies be your ally. Anybody can make an excuse or come up with a reason not to be this or do that. How many diseases do you have holding you back? Don't play the blame game. It doesn't help change things. Don't blame your wife. Don't blame your lack of education. Don't blame your life away. Alibies are self-created. They are like your children and you will defend them to the death.
The first thing you have to conquer is yourself. Plato said the most shameful thing is to be conquered by yourself. Most of the ugliness we see in others is actually a reflection of our own habits and nature.
