Some people get to a passable level of performance and think that they’ve “arrived.” Other people think that once they get to a certain level, they’ll feel like they’ve arrived, but even once they get there, they don’t.
News flash: You’ll never arrive!
Just because you reach a new level and graduate from high school, earn your doctorate, get married or finally get promoted to CEO, that doesn’t mean that you can stop learning and stop expanding.
But it does mean that you need to stop what I call “demonstrating what you already know.”
A life lived at performance level is one of constant iteration and improvement—of always expanding your repertoire and adding new things to your resume.
I believe that the single best thing you can do to jumpstart your life or level-up your career is to seek out (and act upon!) the wisdom of a mentor—or, as I call them in my book, an acting coach.
I’m giving you a breakdown of how to expand your repertoire and find a great mentor in episode #29 of my podcast, as part of my Life at Performance Level series.
Tune in to hear:
- How to build on the strengths that you already have
- How to learn from your coworkers and gain new skills
- The right way to find the best mentor for you
- The key to creating your own path to success
- The story of my speaking mentor who changed the trajectory of my career
