POSITIONING YOURSELF FOR CONSISTENT SUCCESS (PART 4)
SUCCESS EQUATION: Preparation + Opportunity * Positive Mental Attitude=Peak Performance.
Preparation positions you to succeed.THE LAW OF PREPARATION states, “Effective performance is preceded by painstaking preparation”
When preparation and opportunity meet with multiplied positive mental attitude which is the quality of mental attitude you bring to bear in preparing for and seizing the opportunity, it will result in peak performance. Abraham Lincoln reveals, “I shall study and prepare myself and someday my chance will come”. The level of preparation corresponds to the degree of quality of performance.
Opportunity is recognized and maximized by those who invest quality time engaging in high-level preparation. When you maximize preparation time you minimize execution time. Preparation means maximized time-the right use of today that ushers the entrance to a successful tomorrow.
Preparation should be an on-going process and not a one-time event. Preparation should be a lifestyle. John Wooden counsels, “Don’t try to be better than somebody else, but never cease trying to be the best you can be.” Any new contribution to life necessitates a higher level and a whole new preparation.
Preparation counts when attention is paid to small details which erases the big problems of life. An unprepared life is continually under repair.Preparation time is maximizing your time on the task or responsibility of maximum value, stretching your abilities in order to maximize potentials for peak performance.
When your body (action) goes ahead of your mind (thinking), you meet with failure. Think through on paper before you move into a space of action. Get all the information you need from accurate and reliable sources so that your actions will not lead to deformation.
The level of preparation you engage in your season of insignificance will determine your launch into your season of significance. Champions are not made in the ring rather champions are made during their privacy of preparation time. The ring only showcases them to the world.
