World Class performers understand they have to make sacrifices to get to the top. They invest their skill and emotion into the long game. They continually dive into uncharted territory to discover where their winning edge might lie. And by definition, breaking new ground means that taking risks is inevitable. And things don’t always go to plan.
Top performers know that things will not always go their way. Their attitude and approach are to pick themselves up and go again. and again. Their resilience is unshakeable.
Their attitude is one of learning and growing, despite the inevitable setbacks and blockers. Instead of ‘failure’, their perspective is one of ‘learning’. No one ever started out being brilliant.
Everyone learned their skills through exploration, deliberate practice, hard work, endeavour and resilience. Your actions and behaviours come from what you think, and how you think.
To behave differently you have to think differently. Flexible thinking, your attitude, and your approach underlie your success.
As a leader your role is to change things; to continually and relentlessly move things forward and break new ground. If you are not doing that, you are simply managing. If change is to be made, something must stop, and something must start. Change requires a commitment from everyone. Achieving meaningful change and results can only come from establishing the right thoughts and attitudes, by engaging different outlooks and perspectives. Creating a culture of continuous improvement.
Don’t forget that ‘compliant’ people are dangerous because they say yes, but think no. They are not truly bought into the change and are not fully committed. Understanding the difference between compliance and commitment is vital.
World Class Thinking and World Class Behaviour starts with your mindset. With the right attitude, approach and mindset you will optimise your commitment, talent, creativity, opportunity and results. As a former Rally Champion, Penny shares her understanding of the qualities needed to perform at a higher level, and they can all be implemented immediately.
Being World Class is a choice. Is it a choice you can afford not to make?
