Being a high performer at your workplace has got hundreds of thousands in benefits. At the bottom line, I believe you as a team player would love to perform highly and exceed beyond the set targets. There also multiple reasons that enable one to be a peak performer. High performance is not just thought of or acted anyhow, in fact Friedrich Nietzsche says, “If you know the why, you can live any how.” The high performers develop a strong lifestyle and that does not only reflect at the workplace but also in their lives too. Below are some of the key factors why you should be conscious about your output at the workplace;
Every single day of your life contributes to the recording of your life. Your aim could be leaving an outstanding legacy because that’s how people can shortly or eternally recognize your efforts. How would love to be remembered at your current workplace? Do you feel proud of your works? If yes, then keep identifying more places and people to impact. And if No, then it’s time to invest more efforts and raise your game.
The way you work determines what values and principles you truly stand for. For instance, at @Success Africa, @Ethan Musolini the company CEO has no tolerance for dishonesty. Integrity is rooted at the core of his personal life and career, it guides every operation executed in the organization. Your values are not only spoken, but they are the guidelines of your lifestyle. Do you keep time? Are you honest with yourself and others? Do you deliver excellent work? Have outstanding values so as to be the measure of greatness among others and definitely you’ll be in the organizational good books of records.
The marketplace for you
It’s commonly said that your current workplace is your best marketing ground. Apart from side businesses you could be having, your brand is priceless too. Prove yourself by being a high performer, focused and a person who loves work done then others can follow. Peak performers are easily recommended by their former seniors (supervisors, managers, extra) in case of loss of employment opportunity. What are you doing on a daily basis to market yourself as one who is the best in your field?
Most conflicts at workplaces result from poor interpersonal relationships among colleagues. As a wise team player, being conscious of what you think and react towards colleagues puts you in a harmonious atmosphere with them. All this is traced to your personal productivity, in case you always deliver in time you will; have fewer conflicts with your seniors, have more time to help out others where necessary. Make sure you are reliable where others entrust you with their career and personal life matters.
Benefits and opportunities
Workers who are in good records attract more opportunities, benefits and platforms in their lives. This is because they are always standing out from the average performers of which I believe you wouldn’t like to be. Peak performance comes with more than just work promotions and benefits, it has got recommendations for better offers, and both in-house and outer consultation raises your service value.
Motivation is a key player in both life and career success. The most reliable motivation is that which is internally driven from your inner spirit. Peak performance in itself is an achievement which is capable of lighting your day. Just like in the world of academia, students who pass tests and exams stay motivated to remain on the course of studies irrespective of the circumstances. This is because motivation unlocks the self-sense of pride thus confidence to keep on the game. You also need to have daily wins and eventually the true manifestation will show in your performance.
Your own business
One of the reasons for you to perform well at your current workplace should be to learn how to effectively execute duties in your own business or corporate. I believe that you could be having such ambitions of owning a multi million dollar company. Well, that should drive you to sow in your very best in someone else’s for you to build; strong work ethic, mental capacity and determination to deliver once yours sprout. From the ancient scrolls it’s written, “He who is not faithful with someone else’s property, who can give him his own.” This is simply because in the due process of taking other people’s cares, you get the experience of maneuvering through your own.
Career growth and development
Using baby growth and development as a metaphor, the quicker the baby adapts to the life changes, the faster they grow and the vice versa is true. If you as a team player learn so many things faster, you will perform better, you can easily get promoted and definitely accumulate a lot more experience than the one who is a slow learner. The fine work you put out, the better chances you stand because your work will always speak for you. Aim at performing excellently, execute with a high sense of urgency and your career path will definitely grow.
Your personality can take you to places and keeps you there too. Great personalities are built on fine outputs not mere words. Which personality do you wish to be like? Well, once you have mastered high performance, you’ll find yourself happier, open minded and also peaceful. Average and low performers tend to have more intra conflicts and also uncanny personalities. Become more orderly and develop a disciplined life for success.
Therefore, the reflection of your performance affects your career and life. Yearn to have an automatically authentic lifestyle that attracts success and high performance. And also influence others around you to emulate such components, that would be good, isn’t it?
