Living in Peak Performance
Updated: Nov 1, 2021
“I want to be my best self. That’s what I attain to be.”
What keeps you from your best self and how can you choose your best self in any situation?
Know you triggers
We all have situations and moments when we do not respond or act with our best self. We may be hungry, angry, lonely, or tired (HALT) and react to life rather than respond. Reactions can come from the unexpected, the unwanted, or the unknown. The easiest way you can return to your best self is to know what your triggers are and how it feels to be triggered. When you know both, you can better identify when you are feeling frayed or unraveled.
Pivot to the 4 Re’s
Pivot as quickly as possible back to the idea of your best self. Here are four ways to pivot.
Respect your goal in the moment. My goal is peace. What do I need to respond in a peaceful manner?
Return to your breath to calm the body and produce the beneficial hormones. Return to your body and discover what you are feeling and where you are feeling it. Breathe.
Reframe: This is not mine. I am love and light. A servant leader. Infinite love. Abundant joy. Who am I? This is a multi-option response. Keep playing with your answers to get beyond the limits of 1 or 2 choices of who I am.
Remember what you need. Acknowledging needs and meeting them with the new circumstances create safety and confidence to begin again. I need to be curious and discover in this place of unknown.
