Secrets of the World Class

 Secrets of the World Class

Dear Friends ,

What things do you pay attention to?

Where do you put your focus?

Are you becoming distracted by life’s “inconveniences” or do you spend your time, energy, and effort on worthwhile goals?

“Nothing can add more power to your life than concentrating all of your energies on a limited set of targets,” said Nido Qubein, noted speaker, author, and philanthropist.

In Secrets of the World Class, author Steve Siebold writes, “Starting in 1984, I spent every free moment conducting interviews with champions, reading their books and studying everything I could get my hands on about the psychology of peak performance. My friends said I was obsessed. They were right. This book is the result of my 20-year obsession.”

Please take a moment to learn more about how the world class uses the power of focus in this excerpt from Secrets of the World Class below.

Excerpted from Secrets of the World Class

 Champions are famous for concentrating their energy and efforts on what they want and blocking out anything or anyone who threatens that focus. While average people haphazardly pursue loosely defined goals, champions concentrate on the attainment of a singular purpose with an intensity that borders on obsession.

World-class performers invest an inordinate amount of time and energy in selecting their major goals. While the masses consider making changes every New Year’s Eve, the goal setting and planning process is an everyday habit of champions. When the goals are set, champions put mental blinders on and move forward with dogged persistence and ferocious tenacity. World-class performers create such an intense level of concentration to overcome challenges and achieve goals that it is the last thing they think about before they fall asleep, and the first thing that hits them when they wake up. The great ones dream about their goals so frequently that they often keep pen and paper on the nightstand so they can quickly record any ideas or solutions that come to them in the middle of the night. While average people see world-class performers’ successes as a matter of intelligence or luck, champions know sustained concentration of thought and action is usually the true key to their success.

 Action Step for Today

Write down the single most important goal you want to achieve in the next twelve months and make a commitment to concentrate on achieving it – no matter what it takes.
