💥5 High Performance INSIGHTS💥


Finding your Passion is a deliberate process. Not an accidental one.

Make a conscious choice to try MANY different things. Pen down the ones that get you excited. Do them more. Narrow down your choices.  Pick one and go deep. Mastery is an inherent part of passion.


Do not mistake Beliefs and Conviction.

There are 2 kinds of beliefs. Strong and Weak. Strong beliefs is known as Conviction. It is extremely hard to change and it defines the core of a person. Weak beliefs however can be changed with enough logic, effort and grit.


Always add value

Make it a rule to always let people leave you better then when they are when they came to you. In business, make it a mantra to always over-deliver. Focus on the value adding and everything else will fall into place.


Practice Clarity.

Clarity takes effort. The clearer you see, the more likely it will become a reality. Try to reach a high level of specificity and detail.


Control Your Content

We are in an age of information overload. Control the content instead of letting the content control you. Feed yourself useful information. You cannot learn EVERYTHING. Instead, go deep on the things that you value and be relentless.




“I’m not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.” – Stephen Covey


“The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.” – Mike Murdock



Are you asking the right questions?


The way we frame our questions is crucial to how we act. For example… when it comes to working out. There is a difference between asking yourself…


“Should I work out today?” and…


“How would I feel after I work out today?”.


So observe the way you frame your questions.


And then go deep on it and keep asking…

Until next week,
