Ethical Influence • 8:30 – 9:30 am

CREATE A NEW STATE OF PEAK PERFORMANCE.

  • Your state is a three-part framework that creates the lens through which you experience the world around you. Part one is your point of visual and mental focus. We find what we focus on, and so to create a peak state, we must shift our focus towards opportunity and outcome and away from the thoughts and circumstances that diminish our power.
  • Once you’ve focused on what you want, it’s critical to support that outcome with the language you speak to yourself and others. As a result, your “I am” statements allow you to summon the version of you best suited to take on the moment at hand.
  • Your mind translates the story your body tells. So, align your physiology with your focus and language to complete your peak performance state.
