"I'm So Busy…"

We live in a society that glorifies the busy, the frenetic, the over-scheduled, the manic. It’s as if  there were some badge of honor being handed out to the people who are the “busiest” and that if our calendars aren’t jam-packed with appointments from well before dawn until well after dusk we must not want “it” very badly. I’ve been studying this phenomenon for well over a decade now and I have a very simple question: If we’re all so busy getting “it” done day after day, why are there so many people out there who are miserable, unfulfilled, and […]

I Care… But Not That Much!

Have you ever noticed that the things you don’t care about too much come together way easier than the “big deal” desires of life.  Why is it that an email from an old friend arrives the day after we were randomly thinking about them, but the phone hasn’t rung in weeks after interviewing for a dream job? How is it that we can manifest a free cup of coffee in the blink of an eye, but taking our income from $50,000/year to $500,000/year seems next to impossible? Why does the stuff we really don’t care that much about happen so […]

Peak Performance Pillar #4 – Systems

So far, we’ve covered the first 3 pillars of my Success System – Standards, Discipline, and Accountability. Now it’s time to address the GLUE that holds the whole thing together – Pillar #4 – SYSTEMS. Systems are absolutely essential.  Think of them like the script for a movie.  Can you imagine all of the actors and actresses walking onto the set to film a major motion picture without a script?  It would be a disaster. Systems are the scripts for our lives.   We need systems to help circumvent our logic, to keep us moving forward when the going gets […]

Peak Performance Pillar #3 – Accountability

Change is scary.  It can be terrifying.  Every step of the way logic is tugging and pulling at us, determined to hold us back, to keep us stuck; and at some point, it’s going to get overwhelming.   Having a goal and the self-discipline to move forward are important, but they’re never going to be enough, because as human beings, we are not designed to beat our own logic. That’s where the 3rd Pillar in my Peak Performance Success System – Accountability – comes in. Accountability bridges the gap between intention and results.   We must have someone or something holding […]

The #1 Secret To Changing Your Life

Last week I promised to let you in on a secret that will change your life if you really internalize it.  See, we’ve talked about setting goals – standards – and then developing the discipline to do what you need to do to move toward your goals each and every day. I imagine when you heard that you thought, “Well duh, Deb… Of course that’s what I need to do… But why can’t I seem to DO it?” That’s what today’s post is all about. See, we all know WHAT we need to do to improve the results we are […]

Peak Performance Pillar #2 – Discipline

Hopefully, you’ve invested some time discovering your Standard – your big, A-1 goal. If you haven’t yet, that’s okay – keep at it. The first time I ever really spent time purposefully thinking about what I wanted my life to be after my divorce, it took me WEEKS to actually discover it. It’s a big deal, so take your time. In today’s video, we’re going to move on to the 2nd Pillar in my Success Systems – Discipline. Now, a lot of people have a negative reaction to the word “discipline,” thinking it means punishment, but that’s not what I’m talking about […]

Peak Performance Pillar #1 – Standards

I’d like to introduce you to my system for breaking through whatever is holding you back from achieving your goals and living life on your own terms. It’s a process I’ve used subconsciously all my life to achieve one “unrealogical” dream after another. The Air Force honed my process into a real system as I realized my dream of flying supersonic jets, and now I want to share it with you. So, let’s stop and think about it: Haven’t we all had enough people telling us we’re going to fail or make a big mistake? Or that we’re being unrealistic? Or […]

Stuck In A Rut? Here's What You "Need"…

We’ve all been there before. We have this feeling that something is just not right… A niggling in our brain that we are meant for so much more… An urging for “something”… We know intellectually that all we have to do is take a step, and another, and then another – we just need to MOVE, but we can’t seem to make it happen. We know all these things and yet we are paralyzed… stuck… seemingly incapable of breaking free from this prison we find ourselves in. Sound familiar? I get it – I really, really get it! I lost eight […]

It's The Climb…

It’s frustrating when things don’t go smoothly and work out exactly the way we plan for them to or the way we want them too. It’s maddening when we find ourselves banging our heads against a wall trying to unravel the mystery of why things aren’t working out the way they SHOULD… the way we are promised they will if we just do “X,” “Y,” and “Z.” I get it!  BELIEVE me when I say, I GET IT! I also know that I am approaching the middle of my 5th decade on this planet, but please allow me to quote […]
