RockStar:60 #15 “Under Pressure”
Answer: The pressure inside goes up.
The smaller the space = the greater the pressure.
For many, their world (view) is very, very small.
Pressure impacts performance. Those who handle pressure the best, have the best outcomes.
Too little pressure is unmotivating and uninspiring. It ushers in mediocrity.
Too much pressure can produce stiffness, artificiality, and uncertainty.
The problem = we often cannot control the amount of pressure we’re under.
The solution = preparation.
The very best antidote to pressure is preparation. This is the ongoing sharpening of the saw = skill enhancement specific to your techniques, education, communication, and perpetual motivation… on your best, and worst days.
Pressure (regardless of its source, amount, or timing), skillfully managed, ushers in peak performance and excellence. This is the difference between the good and the great.
The great have the ability to consistently deliver stellar performances in the moments that count the most.
“There is no such thing as talent. There is pressure.” ~ Alfred Adler
I believe the greatest accomplishments call for the emergence of talent under pressure.
Be proactive. Prepare. Perform. Produce.
