High Performance Habits: How Extraordinary People Become That Way

High Performance as defined in this book is: succeeding beyond standard norms, consistently over the long term. This book is pure gold and recommended for anyone trying to reach peak performance in business, career, and life. Brendon is widely considered the world’s leading high performance coach (according to both Success Magazine and Oprah.com). The habits in this book are precise, actionable, repeatable, scalable, and sustainable.

Brendon high performance down into 6 habits and refers to them as the HP6:

  1. Clarity – Who you are, what you do, how you interact, where you’re going.
  2. Energy – maintain focus, effort, & well being, stay on your A game.
  3. Necessity – Success is your duty, responsibility, and moral obligation.
  4. Productivity – minimize any and all distractions.
  5. Influence – Getting people to believe in and support your ambitions.
  6. Courage – Express your ideas, take bold action, face uncertainty.

In addition to reading the book, I also recommend watching/listening to this interview with Brendon & Lewis Howes on The School of Greatness Podcast.

You have to choose what you want to do and who you want to be. You have to manage your mind and your time. You can’t continue to justify living beneath your dreams. You have to really want it. Because once you do, nothing will be able to stop you from having it. You have to let go of your bad habits. You have to re-arrange your priorities. You have to say “No” more. You need to put first things first, every single day. You have to pay the price.

If you’re willing to pay the price, you can have absolutely anything you want.
