The highest levels of performance are empowered by the deepest levels of belief.
We spend the majority of our adult lives at work; we spend more waking hours at work than we do at home. For some, work is a means to an end. For some, work pays the bills. If your work is simply a way to make a living, you probably don’t take the time to develop the deepest level of belief in your work. If you are empowered by the deepest level of belief in your work, then your work is more than a job.
In order to perform at the highest level – in order to have a true growth mindset – you must first believe in the work. A relentless pursuit of excellence . . . the desire to truly embrace productive discomfort . . . is born from the deepest levels of belief. The deepest level of belief drives a willingness to do the uncomfortable – a desire to win the battle to stay Above the Line.
