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 […]

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 […]

The Day My Life Fell Apart…

If you’ve been to one of my live presentations then you’ve likely heard the story of how I transitioned from Air Force Instructor Pilot to Green Building Construction Inspector to Developmental Coach, but in the event you are new to me and my work, allow me to introduce myself. I consider myself to have lived a very blessed life. My parents taught me from my earliest memories to go after what I wanted in life, regardless of the obstacles I encountered along the way. That “programming” has served me very well as I set illogical goal after unattainable goal after […]

Finding A New Love

It is only natural for people to derive much of their self-identity – and even their self-worth – from what they DO in life – their careers… their hobbies… And we invoke the most powerful two words in language when we discuss those things – I AM. I AM a business owner… I AM a mother… I AM a coach… For many years, my identity was that of a US Air Force Pilot. Then, I became a Mom, and that was my identity. As my children grew up and required less of my time and energy, I searched for something else to […]

The Marathon Effect

Have you ever noticed how it doesn’t seem to matter how big or how small a project is, you reach a point about 80% of the way through when you feel like you will never be able to finish it? I call this phenomenon “The Marathon Effect” because as Angie started running in races and competing in triathlons and the distances progressed, I noticed a funny thing… Regardless of the distance of the race, she got to a point where she wasn’t 100% sure that she would be able to finish it. In a 5K race, it might come at […]
