What sets highly accomplished entrepreneurs apart from the sea of entrepreneurs around the world? They possess some qualities that help them achieve peak performance in their business and attract the life they truly desire.
Shane Mulgrew, a Peak-performance coach, who helps entrepreneurs reach 7-figure growth in their business, sheds some light on highly effective traits of every successful and high performing entrepreneur. If you want to grow as an entrepreneur and reach the top of your game, here are the four essential characteristics of peak-performers that you must incorporate in your life.
They’re Learners for Life
Whether it’s for business growth or self-development, peak performers never stop learning and upskilling themselves. They’re on the constant lookout for progress and a mentor who they can learn from. They generally pick up a craft they want to achieve mastery in and diligently work towards perfecting it as they go. Doing this certainly sets them apart within their line of business and naturally levels up their authority.
With that being said, it is observed that most peak performers are generally well-read and they continue to explore new ideas through books. Shane recalls how the very first book he ever read “The Richest Man in Babylon” changed his life for good and gave him new insights on overcoming his limiting beliefs and prosper in life.
They’re not Afraid of Failures
Peak performers are risk-takers. Just because a task seems difficult, they do not fear failing unless they at least give it an honest try. They truly understand that failure, setbacks and criticisms are parts of the process and instead of getting demotivated by failures, they become more resilient and push themselves even harder than before.
They Regularly Assess Their Performance
No matter what stage they’re at, peak performers always gauge their progress and performance in regard to their business and reflect on their learnings and mistakes from the past. With that, they continue to learn and improve themselves and they’re always eager to share insights and explore alternative thinking to a given problem.
They Set Priorities & Boundaries
Peak performers have clear visions and missions in their lives that drive their activities and attitude towards their business. They’re generally great at planning out their days, weeks, months and even 4-5 years ahead in future. These entrepreneurs also tend to have a set of rigid routines and rituals they follow that keeps them energised to do their everyday tasks and operations.
One more thing most of these entrepreneurs strongly believe in is setting boundaries for various aspects in their lives, including social life, professional life and personal life. They have a set time for every important thing in their life to stay on track. Meanwhile, they also eliminate mundane and unnecessary things from their schedule.
Shane believes in living a simplistic life where he wishes to live each day to the fullest by utilising his full potential. He helps his clients achieve greater heights in their business and lives by implementing the same simplistic approach and encourages them to start, learn, develop and take risks in their journeys.
