According to Scott Eblin’s book, The Next Level, here is the formula for Performance
Performance equals Potential minus Interference
Here’s what we know for sure: your potential is limitless. With your inborn capabilities, what you could achieve would shock, amaze and might even frighten you at it’s awesomeness.
Let’s be honest, no matter how successful you think you are currently, you are WAY underperforming your true potential. What you have achieved thus far is only a fraction, of a fraction, of what you are capable of. You know that right?
Your current P (Performance) is not living up to your other P (Potential).
Your potential is awesome, even though your performance might suck right now.
So what’s holding you back?
The I (Interference).
There are two forms of interference: Mental and Physical.
Mental interference on your potential, affecting your performance are things such as: self-doubt, fear, lack of confidence, poor self-image, self-loathing, etc.
Physical interferences are things such as: distractions, your associations, the media you pay attention to and the temptations you succumb to.
So for today,
1) Realize you are awesome and your Potential is limitless.
2) Realize your Performance is a disappointment to that Potential.
3) Get mad.
4) Direct your rage toward eradicating the interferences to your potential.
