The Main Idea

To reach higher levels of performance in pretty much any field you may choose, long-term research shows you must form a habit of consistently doing these six things:

Seek clarity. Generate energy. Raise necessity. Increase productivity. Develop Influence. Demonstrate Courage. These are the six habits that you need to adopt if you are to reach high performance in any situation. In the hundreds of personal efforts and social behaviors that we’ve observed, these habits move the needle the most in dramatically improving performance.
Brendon Burchard
The good news is, no one “innately” lacks any of the high performance habits. High performers are not lucky stiffs loaded with a great big bag of strengths at birth. They simply deploy the habits we’ve discussed, and do it more consistently than their peers. That’s it. That’s the difference. You have to work at them all the time.
