Examples of the Practical Application of the Winning Mental Pyramid to Produce Peak Performance

Applied my practical leading edge research and process, Winning Mental Pyramid, for educators at an education and business summit. How to use it is downloadable whether in business or sports.

Ex. 1: A student doesn't do their homework. Since an action isn't being completed (relationship between mood and subconscious) work on the student's mindset (what they think and how they think). You know what to do. You need to add to your skill level to do it better.

Ex. 2: A student tells you my friends stopped talking to me. I have no friends. Since that's what is told (mindset) work on the student's attitude. Logical emotion says you can add friends and that doesn't mean the friends who stopped talking with you aren't your friends.

Ex. 3: A teacher is determining who would play an instrument well and who would sing well. The student wants to do well to please the teacher. After the singing of one word in the song, the teacher hurriedly dismisses the student to play an instrument with a quick "Eughh!" and uses her hands to usher the student towards instruments. Since she didn't even listen to the student and build his self-confidence, the teacher needs to work on her attitude and mindset.

Ex. 4: A student thinks two classmates always get the right answer first. They just were born with it and I wasn't. The student needs to work on their attitude to know they too can get the right answer first by applying the four adaptability links from the workshop as needed.

As I continue to apply my practical research and process, Winning Mental Pyramid, showing the relationship between motivation, inspiration, attitude, mindset, mood, and subconscious, I'm humble in telling you I've done so for business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, employees, doctors, patients, athletes, detainees, educators, students, police officers, and families.

Make The Team
As a player, it's up to you to impress your coach and help your team win. The reason why an athlete is able to perform a skill at a higher level than another athlete and the reason their team wins is because they have the thinking tools to:

1. Increase their intelligence for peak performance
2. Find their adaptability links to leadership and teamwork
3. Be "In The Zone"

The mindset of talent wins is changing. Sure each of us has talents, however, without increasing your intelligence for peak performance, finding your adaptability links to leadership and teamwork, and being "In The Zone" the talent doesn't become honed and refined into skills. Another misperception is once skilled you aren't able to raise the skill level. Highly unlikely, especially if you want to go from winning a championship on the high school level, then playing and winning a championship on the college level, and then win a championship on the pro level.

The difference between high school, college, and professional sports athletes is mental. The higher levels have a greater ability to apply thinking tools to consistently play at the top of their game. Also, they form a team which consists of professionals to facilitate peak performance.

Regardless of the level of play, to make the team and win work on increasing your intelligence, finding your adaptability links to leadership and teamwork, and get "in the zone". Through mental preparation before the game or practice you'll perform at a higher level. The beauty of sports is you'll probably do something during play that you've never done before. That's peak performance. Hone and refine it to win championships.

Please forward

Always better to experience at a live event because other people attend, value is transferred, and it's a more empowering experience.
