High Performance Mindset Training

The highest-performing people in the world are coached by some incredible people.

As you’ve heard me say often, I wholeheartedly believe in the power of good coaching.

In fact, it’s one of the most powerful tools I’ve invested in during my athletic and business careers.

So whenever I get the chance to talk to high-level coaches, I jump at it.

Recently I got to talk to one of the very best.

He coaches not only elite level athletes, but also top CEOs, performers, celebrities, musicians, and more.

Dr. Michael Gervais has worked on some of the most ground-breaking projects in the world. So he knows a thing or two about how to get the best performance out of people.

"Uncomfortableness is how we grow but pain is why we change."  

Not only is he a high-performance psychologist, he understands the power of our minds to accomplish the extraordinary firsthand.

I loved learning his story, how he got into this field, and what he has discovered about our true potential over decades of coaching top performers.

What especially struck me was that he acknowledged how we all struggle with the same fears — no matter what the stakes are.

Regardless of what level we are starting at, we can begin to develop a high-performance mindset right now. Because life is now.

There’s no reason to wait to try your best in Episode 533.
