Are you under mounting pressure and worried about
how you are going to manage it all? Are the physical and mental signals
of stress and anxiety starting to take over your life?
If you find yourself in high pressure situations, where you really want and need to perform at the top of your game, but instead you:
over-exert, blow up, or implode
blank out and can't remember what you just did or what comes next
are distracted or overwhelmed by anxiety, fears and negative thoughts
can't concentrate or get your body to do what it knows how to do
know you have the technical skills to perform better but can't determine what gets in your way. . .
. . .you’ve come to the right place!
Whether your goal is managing the pressures of daily life, healing a difficult relationship, making a tough decision and navigating change, getting the job or promotion, passing an exam, executing the perfect jury summation or Shakespearian soliloquy, improving your game, or getting your students or colleagues to perform at their best, The Center for Performance and Achievement offers practical strategies to manage the challenge, deliver your goods, and perform at the top of your game when the pressure is on!
I like to think of “performance” as: DELIVERING THE GOODS (whatever they are) RIGHT NOW!!! That big RIGHT NOW creates a unique pressure that distinguishes performance from preparation, research, training, and practice! Anytime you have to “deliver your goods” RIGHT NOW -- especially when conditions aren't ideal, or you can't “start over” -- you are performing!
This certainly applies to: actors singers dancers musicians and athletes.
But it doesn't only apply to them! We perform in every aspect of our life! If you are a parent, you are also a performer. If you are in a relationship, you are a performer. If you are coach or teacher, you are a performer. If you are a student, you are a performer. If you have a job, or are looking for a job, you are performer. If you are:
an attorney a supervisor or manager a firefighter a peri-medic a police officer a doctor a nurse a dentist. . .
. . .you are responsible for delivering your goods consistently, and others rely on you to perform at the top of your game when the pressure is on. That makes you a performer!
To perform at your maximum potential, you must master your skills AND be able to draw on those skills under pressure!
MOVING BEYOND "PERFORMANCE ANXIETY" TO . . . PERFORMING AT THE TOP OF YOUR GAME:
