In my role as a life coach I get the opportunity to see both sides of ‘The Equation of Life’.
I get to research and work with people who are the ultimate high achievers – those that go on to achieve at another level in business, sport and life.
And I also get to research and work with those who pay the ultimate price in life – and tragically even lose their lives.
As human beings we all seek to live inspired fulfilled lives of happiness and health, but sometimes we do get it unwittingly or habitually wrong.
Here are potent insights into the THREE greatest performance destructors in life.
By knowing what they are – YOU can easily avoid these ‘Human Traps ‘- and go on to achieve your own greatest potential in your life.
PERFORMANCE DESTRUCTOR NUMBER ONE: ADOPTING THE WRONG MINDSET
Mindset matters most.
We all have to make ‘THE MINDSET CHOICE’ – and there is zero middle road.
Victor or Victim?
The minute we allow a victim mindset to creep in – we are effectively self sabotaging our own lives.
Our best made plans in life will prove meaningless if we adopt an underlying victim mindset – that of coming from a position of weakness – that of entitlement.
Empower yourself by choosing to be a VICTOR.
Seek to always be coming from a position of strength
PERFORMANCE DESTRUCTOR NUMBER TWO: NOT INVESTING IN YOUR HEALTH
It’s near impossible to be a high achiever when you are battling your health.
Invest in all three realms of health, namely:
Physical (what you put into your body), Chemical (what you put into your mouth) and Emotional (what you put into your mind)
By far the NUMBER ONE health destructor which I encounter is CANCER.
One in four South Africans is associated with cancer in some form or another. Either they have it themselves, or they have a relative or a friend battling the disease.
Tragically, it’s a war which medical science is not winning worldwide.
Most oncologists choose to primarily focus on a triad of symptomatic treatments – namely chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.
But to win ‘the cancer war’ – it’s far more empowering to’ think different ‘and ask the critical cancer question:
What’s the ONE & ONLY common denominator amongst all cancer sufferers?
There is only ONE.
Here it is.
It’s going to surprise you.
They all fall into the ‘human trap’ of either unwittingly or habitually subjecting themselves to a highly toxic emotion – LONG TERM RESENTMENT. (It’s just there – held either consciously or subconsciously)
Resentment is like drinking poison – and then hoping it will kill your enemies : Nelson Mandela- a cancer survivor
Most of us simply have little or no idea how toxic emotions can destruct lives – take lives.
Yes, they can destroy lives and families, but here is the good news.
In the hundreds of cancer patients I have researched or helped to date – by cutting off the toxic ‘cancer fuel’ called RESENTMENT – they will soon find themselves back on the road to happiness, health and performance.
Empower your life by investing in all three of the realms of life and health – Physical. Chemical and the all important one called EMOTIONAL.
Here’s the golden rule for living a balanced healthy life.
Too much or too little of anything for too long creates imbalance.
Imbalance creates illness.Balance creates wellness

PERFORMANCE DESTRUCTOR NUMBER THREE: OPERATING A LOW LEVEL GAME PLAN
Low achievers are kings or queens of the ‘P’ called PROCRASTINATION.
It happens when one operates a low level game plan with little or no congruency between the three potent P’s which drive performance.
PURPOSE, PRIORITIES & PERFORMANCE GOALS
Low performers seek motivation from the outside.
High performers seek inspiration from the inside.
Empower yourself by operating a congruent high level game plan – one which is Authentic, Aligned and Actionable.
