Today I’m going to share five habits of high performers with you. Specifically high performing entrepreneurs, but this actually applies to any area of life, whether we’re talking about athletes, parents, or anything else.

The reason I can share this with you is because when I look back at my combined 20 years of experience playing soccer (playing professionally as well), and in business having built some really cool stuff, I’ve been very fortunate to surround myself with some very high level people and I’ve noticed a couple of traits, and habits over the years.

There’s more than five, but I want to share five of them with you in this video.

 

Spend More Time Strengthening Their Strengths

Number one, high performers, they know their limits, and they’re always looking to push them.  They know what they’re good at,  what they’re not so good at, and they’re not necessarily looking at strengthening their weaknesses, they’re looking at spending more time on strengthening their strengths and in some cases,  delegating and outsourcing their weaknesses to other people who are better at that than them.

So they know their limits, they know what they’re good at, they know what they’re not good at, but they also know their limits in terms of their mindset.

They know that they’re limited by maybe their upbringing, or the fact that they weren’t fed with a gold, silver spoon, and they put themselves in an environment that is going to challenge them to grow. To expand their thinking, to expand their beliefs and horizon so they can reach for new objectives and new goals. So knowing their limits, and pushing them is the first one.

 

They Seek Feedback

Second, is they’re constantly seeking feedback. They hire coaches, pretty much that’s as simple as how I can put that. They’re seeking feedback, not in the sense of let me watch this YouTube video to figure out how to do something. No, no, no, they’re going to go right to the source, they’re going to hire a coach, they’re going to figure out what it is they’re doing that’s working and what’s not working.

 

Course Correcting

The third thing that kind of ties in with that is they’re going to constantly be course correcting. They’re seeking that feedback, and then based on the feedback, they’re course correcting. So if something isn’t working, they’re going to pivot and take action and move in a new direction.

Now the difference between the high performers at this point and quote, unquote “losers or quitters”, is that quitters give up. Like quitters quit, right, they don’t course correct. They say this is hard, I thought it was going to be easier and they stop.

That’s why the vast majority of people in this world amount nothing. I’m sorry to say that, but it’s true. You don’t want to be one of those people.  You want to be one of the people who rises up, who inspires others to do the same and you can not quit, you have to constantly be taking action, move forward, course correcting based on the feedback and pushing those limits.

 

Taking Massive Action

Number four is they take massive action. Now this again ties very closely with course correction, but they take massive action. They don’t have to have all their ducks in a row, they don’t have to have everything lined up. They just, a lot of times, a lot of these people they’re not smarter, they’re not like PhD’s and people you think are smarter than you. Quite honestly a lot of times, they’re less smart.

It can be frustrating when you see someone who’s not as smart as you on paper, but they’re killing it in life, they’re killing it in business and it’s just sometimes it’s actually better not to know what you don’t even know and just go forward.

They just go, they take action, they get that feedback, they course correct, and they keep moving forward.

 

Constantly Growing and Learning

The fifth thing is that they’re grow givers which means that they’re constantly growing, they’re constantly learning and they’re constantly giving back. I say giving back not in the form of charity, they’re adding to the world in the process of serving others.

So, they think of, how do I add value before asking for anything in return? If I’m asking for value, or if I’m providing value, eventually the tap is going to run dry. So how do I continue learning and growing, how can I continue being in environments where I’m learning from the best? I’m taking those lessons and insights, I’m going to share them with others, I’m going to make their lives better and easier, and as a result,  get compensated appropriately for that.

In order to give, you have to grow and the more you grow, the more you can give, and the more you give, the more money you can make, because money is simply a reflection of the value you create for other people in this world. The more value you create, the deeper the impact you make, the more money you make as a result. It’s as simple as that.

 

Yuri’s Wrap Up

So those are the five habits of high performers. Now let me ask you this, are you a high performer? Let’s be honest, are you where you want to be? Are you struggling? Well I’m going to call it out, if you’re struggling and if you’ve been struggling for years then maybe you’re not as much of a high performer as you thought.

It’s still in there, there’s still that kindling, there’s still that flame inside of you that knows that deep down, in the right environments, with the right support you can make this happen.

It’s important to be surrounded by other people who are crushing it, who are doing great in their business and are just great people.  If you want to be surrounded by amazing people who are also high performers, send me a message.

Send me a DM, send me a whatever and lets chat because you know, we’ve got an amazing group of health-preneurs that we help at a very high level who are doing some big things.

If you are serious about taking your business to the next level, and you consider yourself a high performer, who’s already doing well in business, and you want to get to the next level, then let’s chat. Send me a DM, let me know where you’re at, let me know where you want to go, and lets figure out if we can support you. Sound good?

In the mean time, I hope you have an awesome day.
