We live in a performance based society. How you perform determines your level of success. Whether you are on stage or in sport, in the boardroom or the classroom, or even if you just want to say hello to a stranger, being able to perform well is a life-advancement ability.
Is there a difference between what you can do and what you actually do in “performance” situations? Most people blame “in-performance” blunders on their technique. Jeff believes if you EVER performed well, your performance experiences, good or bad, are 100% results of your mental training. Technical study is crucial, and knowing your content is essential, but the third indispensable area through which all performance actions flow is your performing ability.
If there is a difference between your best abilities and your performance experiences, Jeff believes you succeed by analyzing and improving “The Performer” in yourself.
EVERY time you perform, your performance is made up of the choices you’ve made after considering three fundamental components. These components are your technician, your content, and your performer.
-The “How” you perform
- For musicians – how you breathe, stand, blow, hit, sing, etc…
- For salespeople – how you talk about your product, how you present it, how you smile, etc…
- For athletes – how you lift the ball, swing the racquet, take the step, pedal the bike, do the belly-flop, etc…
-The “What” you perform
- For musicians – it’s the music. What you think Mozart meant when he wrote what he wrote, what you think a simple phrase should sound like, etc…
- For salespeople – it’s the product. What you think your product can do, what you think good products like yours should be able to do, etc…
- For athletes – it’s the sport itself. What type of movement is allowed, what action is a foul, how many lines can your puck cross for your needed pass, etc…
-The “Why” we perform
- For musicians – what you think before you walk out onstage, what you think when you miss a note, what you think when a person’s cell phone goes off in concert, etc…
- For salespeople – what you think before you walk up to an important client, what you think when you see a certain facial expression, what you think when the client asks a question, etc…
- For athletes – what you think when everything actually rides on this game, this shot, this race, this dive, what action option choice exists considering how far you can realistically throw the ball, etc…
Imagine walking onstage, to the foul-shot line, up to Bill Gates or your future wife/husband, and feeling and acting just as you would if you were at home with your best friend. Imagine if you could convince yourself that you were giving every performance in front of your biggest fan!
Now imagine picking up your horn, microphone, or basketball and performing at the level of your best ability. Jeff lives and performs in this free state of selective naïveté, and he has become an expert in teaching others how to do this as well.
In Jeff’s “Fearless Performance” training, he shares his wisdom and wit about why you always have a choice, and how you can train yourself to consistently make good choices. He helps you examine what bad and good choices you presently make. More importantly, you look at how making good choices in your training, in your performances, and in your life are all connected. Most importantly your good choices can ultimately replace fear. These fearless choices raise your level of excellence and your consistency of achieving said excellence.
Choosing to live as fearlessly as possible can turn what you can do into what you actually do.
