    Stressed About Repeating Peak Performance?

    Three Steps to Help You Go Peak to Peak August 23, 2017 Enhancing Human Performance
    Filed Under:
    Warrior Wisdom
    Anxiety about repeating past performance is all too common. Really it's an exception to the rule when it doesn't happen.
    As we build a business to a certain level of success, we tend to create a lifestyle to match. Eventually most people will get to the point where they have to reproduce their success in order to meet all their various obligations.

    Here are 3 strategies to help you to avoid this dreaded stress and anxiety producing scenario.

    1. Don't get suckered into spending everything you make. Just because you can afford it doesn't mean that you should buy it. Never buy the biggest house with the biggest mortgage that you can qualify for. 

    2. Be careful with the big purchases. As a successful business person, it's not the $6 latte or even the $50 bottle of wine at dinner that will sink you. It's the quick decision to buy a recreational property, or the big SUV. I'm not saying to not buy it, I'm suggesting that you need to spend some time analyzing all the costs involved and seeing if at the end of the day you will still have margin.

    3. Bring God into your business as your senior partner and follow His lead.  Even if you get #1 and #2 right, at some point you will still find yourself in way over your head because of unforeseen circumstances. Times will be uncertain, that is a guarantee, but God will give you certainty. He works all things out for good for those called according to His purposes. We do not see clearly in the "now", and most of the things we want to understand now may become clear later on in life, but through prayer and petition we can get a better idea of what God wants us to do with our lives.

    He places the calling on our lives and He provides the resources and the path for our success.

    Be Blessed,

    Thank you Yurij and Amen! Yes, it goes in alignment with wisdom to "Enjoy things without owning them". Most of the time expensive things easier to rent. Like a cottage or a boat.

    We decided not to purchase a new vehicle just three days before this wisdom. We are fortunate that we did not have buyer's remorse. We were looking for all the wrong reasons. in the future we hope that we will pray on these decisions. God's timing is spectacular.

    Yup. I've still got lots of work to do here. Thank goodness I'm heading the the right direction! It's also really nice to be a place where despite feeling over my head at times, I'm still finding more joy in each day.

    Thanks Yurij. Good to be reminded that just because you can, may be should not!

    I really know, Yurij, about being in over my head even without getting suckered into overspending or big purchases. These sure cause some horrible anxiety and sleepless nights. However I try to keep on doing the one next step when life comes sideways at me with the unexpected. The only way I know I can keep doing that no matter circumstances, is to keep God close and Warrior wisdom and community to keep me encouraged to keep trying. Thank you for your ability to keep things simple, small and stepable (not a word but I like it). I can't wait to see everyone at Camp next month!

    Sage words. Especially #3 - I'm still learning these points and your post is a timely reminder. Thanks Yurij

    Amen Yurij! 2017 has been all about creating more financial margin in my life. The more margin- the more peace I experience. Praise Jesus!
