As a performance coach, it’s my job to pay attention to the traits of top performers. And I can assure you, the crème de la crème convince themselves and their peers of a reality that leads to optimum performance; and this reality has elements of truth in it, but it is objectively not true.
Sure, one of the most common reasons people remain low performers is their inability to come to terms with the truth. But the other side of this coin is the inability of skilled performers to become truly elite by detaching themselves from objective truth.
The reality you convince yourself of will determine your future. Message me if it needs improvement.
