Can you remember a time in your life when you were truly at the “Top of Your Game?” A time when things just seemed to be clicking and everything appeared to be going your way.
It was a time when you felt good, looked good, had confidence, moved with purpose, and knew that you could not be stopped. It may not have been a time when you made the most money but you were still clearly at the top of your game. It’s a great feeling so why not get there for 2007?
Speaking of being at the top of your game, there are very few people in the world that don’t know Michael “Air” Jordan, Walter “Sweetness” Payton, or Wayne “The Great One” Gretzky. These are three of the world’s best athletes and they fully understood what it meant to be at the top of their game. They knew how to dominate. They understood how to succeed. More importantly, they knew how to manipulate their thoughts and used them to propel themselves to greatness.
You see, being at the top of your game is more a state of mind than anything else. It’s when you know that you are capable of anything. There is a reason why this particular article has popped into my mind twice over the last few days and that’s because I have decided that 2007 is a year that I will be at the top of my game. Why 2007? Why not?
I like the number 7. I was born on the 7th. It’s generally known as a lucky number. Actually, none of those things really have anything to do with it. It’s merely a matter of making a decision to raise your game and take it to the next level. It’s truly that simple.
Since we are on the topic of games, let’s talk about a real game for a second. Are you a basketball fan? In the National Basketball Association there is not a single professional team without a big man to handle the inside game. These teams recognize that a strong “inside” game is crucial to winning in the league. Therefore, you will seldom find a team without a seven footer on the roster.
That same basic concept applies to you and your success. The outer game is secondary to the inside game. It doesn’t really matter how good you may look, what kind of car you drive, how strong your are, or how much money you currently have if your inside mental game is weak. You must have it together. What do you say when you talk to yourself? Is it always positive and constantly seeking solutions or do you tend to gravitate toward the negative? If the latter, change it—because without a strong inside game, your road to success is already blocked.
If you have read any of my articles in the past, you may or may not know that I’m a former Marine Drill Instructor. Semper Fi to all my comrades out there. I often mention that fact, and actually use it in my marketing, because I’m very proud of that time in my life. I also use it because it represents one of the times that I was truly at the top of my game and it’s good to remember such things.
I’m going to share a few examples when I had the feeling that I was unstoppable and then I’ll discuss some things that I noticed about my success back then, and how you can apply them in 2007 to make it your best year ever. (See Part II)
