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 breaks high performance down into 6 habits and refers to them as the HP6:
- Clarity – Who you are, what you do, how you interact, where you’re going.
- Energy – maintain focus, effort, & well being, stay on your A game.
- Necessity – Success is your duty, responsibility, and moral obligation.
- Productivity – minimize any and all distractions.
- Influence – Getting people to believe in and support your ambitions.
- 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.

Ever since I started creating content online and on social media, I’ve been asked this question several times (and even more so in the past 30 days). “Kyle, why did you start your blog? What are you goals with this? But why?!” Richard Branson said: “I’m prepared to try anything once.”
School was always a struggle for me. Actually, I ended up barely graduating from high school. It’s not something I’m proud to talk about but it’s true, even during my college years. “But wait Kyle, if you had a 1.2 GPA, how did you get into college?!?” Excellent question my friend.
What separates the winners from the losers? What’s the difference between the rich and the poor? What’s the difference between the happy and the sad? Negotiation skills. Ladies and gentlemen, life is negotiation. Our life is built around our ability to communicate and negotiation is simply communication with results. Learn how to get what you want.
It blows my mind that you can spend up to $100,000 on getting a college degree and spend zero time on learning how to create wealth. There are really only a few things in life that we must get right. We have to get our health right. We have to get our relationships right. We have to […]
Many of you guys know that I’m a huge advocate of reading books and improving your mind. Years ago, I received some incredible advice from a very successful man. He said “Kyle, it’s not enough that you read a lot. You have to read to lead.” What he meant was that you can’t just read […]
