Are You a Rock Star Performer?

Rock Star Performer – Regardless of the industry you are in, you can have Rock Star Power! Now, I’m not talking the Hollywood celebrity kind, I’m referring to the people who tend to give extraordinary service with their work and with those around them. They have a deep desire to succeed.

You influence, you love what you are doing, and it radiates out from you. You are the kind of person that does more than expected; you are likeable and people want to be around you.

Do you have Rock Star Power?

I’d be interested to hear what your immediate response was. As a lot of us generally don’t think we have it, yet we all innately possess it! 65% of the population would admit to being shy and we live from a self imposed script due to it. Your inner Rock Star is hidden. So what other qualities does a Rock Star Performer have and can you awaken them within?

Desire

Your desire to succeed is so strong that you can taste and feel the end result. Want to set up your own business? If you have a deep burning desire to succeed then you will sit up past midnight after everyone else has gone to bed to develop that business plan, do some research, write an article. Rock Star Performers see no other result than the end goal.

Determination

Rock Stars push past any bumps and pitfalls along the way including failed attempts! It is well know that most successful people have lost their money or failed over and over again and yet they don’t let failure stop them from dusting down and starting again.

Discipline

A Rock Star Performer follows through to the end. They perfect their art or way of doing something and act from that all the time. They also learn constantly and adjust behaviours according to any knowledge gained

Action

If the desire is deep, you will take action each and every day to attain your goal. You will get up before dawn to educate, read, call the other side of the world, visual or meditation on your success. You know what you need to do. You are crystal clear on the outcomes and you construct your day to include tasks that will get you there. A true Rock Star will also have that work / life / health / spiritual balance as they know the importance of it.

So how are you going so far? Does the above ring true for you? Has it awoken aspects of yourself that you didn’t recognise or desire to have again? Hope so…!

Until Next Time….

Happy Playground….

Midlife Crisis Starting as Early as 35 years Old

UK researchers have released a finding that the traditional midlife crisis that people tended to experience around 50 and upwards is starting in people as young as 35 years old. As a Life Coach, I personally do not find this surprising.

The research done by Relate UK say:

  • That 1 in 5 aged 35 – 44 feel lonely a lot of the time and have suffered depression,
  • 22% wish they had a better relationship with their family and the same number feel closer to their friends than to their family
  • Nearly one third think their family relationships would improve if they could reduce their working hours
  • 25% wanted more time for their family
  • 23% want more time for their friends
  • 22% have suffered depression
  • 28% have left a job because of a bad relationship with a colleague
  • 40% have been cheated on by a partner

People in this age group also work long hours and have the added stress of managing family, mortgage and other financial pressures that go along with it.

To fill in the time with family/friends gaps, the 35 to 44 year olds are prolific users of communication whether it be mobile phone calling and texting, using Skype or webcam, Facebook and Twitter to stay in touch with family and friends.

From my coaching perspective, most of my clients range between 33 to 45 years old and fit in perfectly with the above statistics.

Clients come to life or business coaching because how their life or business is right now needs to change. It isn’t working for them.

It takes courage to take action but if your desire is strong for change, you have the determination to see it through, the discipline to take action each and every day, you will see the results! I have tons of clients that have proved it.

7 Tips to Extraordinary Communication

30 Seconds or Bust! The Key To Good Communication

Today, we will touch briefly on communication and some tips that will help you get the results you need.

Extraordinary Communication

Rock Star Performers with extraordinary communication are hard to find. Those that have it can nail it every time. Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan (in his prime) and Barak Obama are great examples of people who have mastered communication and how they deliver messages.

Bill Clinton Rock Star Performer

It has been said that Bill Clinton can enter a room and the entire room can sense his presence.

I have experienced this myself a number of times with people who have high levels of confidence in themselves.

People are drawn to you almost trance like. That is amazing Rock Star Performer quality

Waffle Leads to “A-Ha”, “Oh”, “Mmmm” Moments

Regardless of whether you are promoting or selling something or about to share an experience, please get the point quickly and go into more detail once the receiver is engaged. There is nothing worse than a whole story being told before the communicator has got to their point and you have drifted off so much that you the only way you can respond is with a “A-ha, oh, mmmm” because you have no clue what they said, due to having gone through that evening’s shopping list or visualizing how good a cold beer would be right now.

Make Someone Feel Like They Are Important

When you engage with someone, there is so much power in being present with them. Really look at them. It will make them feel like the only person in the room and that they are important. Rock Star Performers do this all the time.

Be A Better Communicator – 7 Tips To Successful Communication

  1. Studied and watch some of speeches of Clinton, Obama, people you admire and see if you can gain some insight that can improve how you engage people
  2. Great communicators love meeting and being with people. Learn to overcome shyness.
  3. Do exercises to increase your confidence and self esteem
  4. Focus on the person you are with and not the person who just walk by or caught your eye
  5. The dress the way you want to be perceived
  6. Learn to get your point across in 30 seconds
  7. Ask friends for feedback / video yourself giving a presentation or speech

One last point for today – Good communication is also about knowing when not to talk. We will go into more detail on that next time when look at Listening.
