Out Perform

Learning to outperform 98% of our fellows is a skill set which first begins in your mind. Everything is first created in the human mind then translates into the life of individuals as they act out their beliefs and values about themselves and how they see the world we all live in. The inner world of our mind translates to the outer world that we see and act upon. Is the glass half full or half empty?

Everything begins with an idea- this is the most important message that I can impart. Become an Optimist. The process of optimism is similar to that of pessimism only the fruits- the end result is opposite. Become an optimist in your thinking so when you awake each day you are glad to be alive, looking for opportunities – when acted upon will over time result in a life of success.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

–Albert Einstein

It is our imagination that allows us to see the possible and ask “What If?”

Visualize Your Future!

 

Use visualization to re-program your self-image and create a vision of positive self-expectancy. Make a Vision Board! Place pictures of yourself and your loved ones with things that you desire and goals that you want to accomplish in the present/ future.

A vision board can be a bulletin board made of cork with a frame around that you hang on the wall where it serves as a daily reminder. It can also be pictures placed on your computer’s desktop as a slide show.

Our personal map can be stuck on “present” in that we have become comfortable with our present circumstances we view it as what our life IS. This is an incomplete and fictitious picture of who we are and what we are capable of accomplishing in life. We can re-program our mind by changing our thoughts; reading inspirational books and informative books on topics we are interested. Next by setting goals with a longer term view in mind we can grow and change. Learning should be a lifelong process both in what we accomplish and in knowledge through study and observation.

Action steps:

1. Create a Vision for yourself.

2. Write a plan of action, prioritize.

3. Live the plan as if you have become your vision.

4. Find mentors

Winners Visualize the Rewards of Success

Excerpt from Permission to Succeed

 [In 1980] “The Soviet Union entered the Olympic tournament as heavy favorites, having won the ice hockey gold medal in 1956 and every year [from 1964 to 1976]. In the four Olympics after the Soviet squad was upset by team USA in the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley, Soviet teams had gone 27-1-1 and outscored the opposition 175-44. In head-to-head matchups against the United States, the cumulative score over that period was 28-7. The Soviet players were classed as amateurs, but soft jobs provided by the Leonid Brezhnev government (some were active-duty military) allowed them to essentially play professionally in a well- developed league with world class training facilities. They were led by legendary players in world ice hockey, such as Boris Mikhailov a top line ice hockey right winger and team captain, Vladislav Tretiak considered by many to be the best ice hockey goaltender in the world at the time, the speedy and skilled Valeri Kharlamov, as well as talented, young, and dynamic players such as defenseman Viacheslav Fetisov and forwards Vladimir Krutov and Sergei Makarov. From that team, Tretiak, Kharlamov, and Fetisov would eventually be enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame.

 

[US Hockey Coach] Herb Brooks conducted tryouts in Colorado Springs in the summer of 1979. Of the 20 players who eventually made the final Olympic roster, Buzz Schneider was the only one from the 1976 Olympic team. Nine players had played under Herb Brooks at the Minnesota Golden Gophers men’s ice hockey program. Four more were from Boston Terriers men’s ice hockey at Boston University (Boston, Mass.) Assistant coach Craig Patrick had played with Brooks on the 1967 U.S. national team.”  -Wikipedia

Losers visualize the penalties of failure.

Winners visualize the rewards of success.

 

The Soviet team was clearly the favorite in any contest and their opponents were intimidated by the skill of the Soviet Team – the opposing team expected to lose and the Soviets expected to win, in most cases they were both right. Herb Brooks had a vision of how to defeat the Soviet team and designed a plan which included picking specific players who had the ability to beat the USSR’s Hockey Team at their own game. Team USA won the Gold Medal at Lake Placid, NY in the 1980 Winter Games, now known as the Miracle on Ice.

Abraham Maslow wrote in

The Further Reaches of Human Nature:

“Think of life as a process of choices, one right after another. At each point there is a progression choice and a regression choice. There may be movement towards defense, towards safety, towards being afraid; but over on the other side, there is a growth choice. To make the growth choice instead of the fear choice a dozen times a day is to move a dozen times a day towards self-actualization.”

 

University of Making Stuff Up:

Your life is not pre-determined- we make it up as we go along. To succeed: 1. Create a Vision 2. Live into that vision.

Your Holiday Inn Express!

 

“Fed up with the rundown motels he encountered on family road trips, Kemmons Wilson quit his job selling popcorn in cinemas to build the first Holiday Inn, named after the 1946 film starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, in Memphis, TN. He advertised rooms for $4, doubles for $6, and later added TVs, air-conditioning and free ice. Expanding nationally on the backs of franchisees, Wilson’s idea caught fire with the public; travelers always knew what to expect. Today Six Continents Hotels operates more than 1,000 Holiday Inns in 70 countries.” –Forbes Magazine, December 23, 2002, pp. 162.

News Release!

 

Motivational self-help book provides eight critical steps to succeed

Zak Klemmer draws from emotional and engineering mindsets to create a bold life plan in “Permission to Succeed”

TUCSON, Ariz. – Are you fully committed to living your vision? Business leader Zak Klemmer offers a step-by-step guide to change our thinking when it comes to creating success in our lives with “Permission to Succeed” (ISBN 1456472038).

Klemmer provides the following equation as a representation of his book’s overall message:

Beliefs + Thoughts + Feelings + Habits = Results

Drawing from his introspection on life, the author discusses the importance of vision, values, goals, tasks, self-talk, attitude, commitment and tackling all of the above right now. He stresses how to overcome negative programming and use the structure of design to achieve goals in life.

“My book creates a strategy based on an individual’s inner thoughts and combines it with the design process used in architecture and construction. This process helps one overcome negative programming and accomplish specific goals,” said Klemmer.

The author lays out a plan for readers to create their life vision, envision themselves living it, and learn to become competent within the goal. The process involves finding mentors and acting right away, something Klemmer emphasizes throughout “Permission to Succeed.”

“Permission to Succeed” is available for sale online at:

Habit Forming Success

Both Failure and Success start with habit.

“The individual who wants to reach the top in business must appreciate the might of the force of habit and must understand that practices are what create habits. He must be quick to break those habits that can break him and hasten to adopt those practices that will become the habits that help him achieve the success he desires.”

–J. Paul Getty (1892-1976, American Oil Tycoon)

Meritocracy

–Barry Goldwater
