Traits of High Performers

What separates the high performers from the average? I have talked about these traits before individually, but I thought I would share four of the main traits of high performers in the same post.

  • DESIRE – There is no substitution for desire. Desire is not  hope. It is not a wish. It is a keen, pulsating, DESIRE, which transcends everything else. It is definite. It is something so strong that nothing is going to get in your way of accomplishing what it is you set out to accomplish. Napoleon Hill referred to it as a burning desire. Alan Nagao calls this a white hot desire.  What is your burning desire in life? To be financially free? To be physically fit? To be the best whatever? You can accomplish anything you want if your desire is strong enough.
  • Disciplined – This is something we all have to work at. It’s our work ethic. Life will always have a way of getting in the way if we let it. We are all busy and we can all find reasons or excuses for not accomplishing what it is we set out to accomplish. High performers don’t let the urgent, unimportant things get in their way. In every endeavor, there are certain strategies or activities that need to be done on a daily basis to achieve. What are those activities in whatever you are trying to accomplish. In the network marketing business, it’s just getting out and sharing your story. A simple activity, if repeated everyday will guarantee success. Are you being disciplined enough to do whatever activity it is that will drive your success?
  • Coachable – High performers are teachable, trainable and coachable. In others words, they listen to those that might be able to cut the learning curve for them. This can include having a coach or mentor, but it can also include listening to CD’s and videos. It can include reading books from the experts in your endeavor or industry. The Internet provides so much free information in whatever subject your looking for. Coachable is an attitude. It’s wanting to learn and grow as much as you can so you can live our your burning desire. Are you coachable?
  • Communication Skills – Steven Covey said that communication skills is the most important skill to possess to be an effective person. Understanding how to communicate with people is critical to most endeavors. It doesn’t necessarily mean your a goo talker. In fact, I know a lot of people who are great at talking but not so great at listening. Covey also said, “Seek first to understand, then to be understood.” This is something we can all improve upon. How are your communication skills?

Do you want to be a high performer? Are you willing to pay the price it takes to succeed? It’s worth it in the end game!! Be a high performer. You can do it.

Have an awesome day.
