The Science of Performance – Fit people do better: What Successful People Really Know

Performance isn’t a goal. It’s an action. A discreet series of learning and development steps created from the necessities of the game we are all involved in. It begins with who we are as people, how we attack the game of life, and our physical prowess that sustains our health at every moment.

It’s not enough to simply show up -at the gym, at work, or for our personal lives. We are uniquely endowed with the gift of deciding to do less than our best in life. We aren’t animals surviving in the wild. They don’t have that choice. It’s succeed or die. For us we can throttle it up or down depending on our will to accept less than we know we can attain.

Establish the “be the best you can be” mindset. Learn “fight psychology” – establishing a perspective on the immediate circumstance we alone have chosen. Attack the proving ground of all things physical – professional athletic training.

The Science of Performance is the actions we take for all the small wins in life – the ones that count.

Willpower – Chocolate Chip Cookies for the Brain

Do we understand the science behind will-power? Are we willing to get uncomfortable?

Ultimately, we begin to understand that growth comes through effort and reaching further succeed at the mechanics enabling us to function as humans.

To develop will-power you must have good habits, and until you have good habits you won’t develop will-power. Behavior is not a function of beliefs.

Our beliefs are served up through changing our behavior. A dynamic perspective will ultimately hold us back or permit our fullest expression of success. We use today’s understanding of our brain function to reveal the secrets of will-power. Performance training for professionals only works if driven by willpower. The process is provocative. It assumes that we have control over our behavior. Our success is not contingent. It is a destination that can only be reached if we understand why we are on the journey.

Play at the Top of Your Intelligence -The Art of Conversation

Your conversation is a fluid tool that heats up or cools off the cognitive receptors in your audience. It’s not the part of the brain you are speaking from, it’s the part of the brain that is listening. We build connections on simple threads of information, positive ball passing, and conversation that goes big and goes long. Be assured. It’s the add information game.

Relationships cannot be scripted. We have to think on our feet. It takes more than passion to deliver our differences. And it begins with what we hear, fully activated ears, and dynamic response tools to fully engage the listener.

Let’s add to our relationship skills and consistently open the door wider to greater possibilities. Let the intensity grow as the relationship develops. Let’s create forward movement to engage our audience, connect humbly and honestly.

Let’s play at the top of our intelligence.

“I love working out with Dan. 20 minutes and I’m done. I have multiple sclerosis and was told I couldn’t do that kind of intense work out and I totally can.

Dan caters it to me, he adjusts the workout to my needs for that day. I can keep up with my family and have a good time.

I didn’t think you could do that much in 20 minutes and I love it!” -Anne Dann
