The 2009 re-release shows the way to optimal performance in the workplace. You learn how to avoid becoming an SOP (stressed-out-person) and to convert anxiety or worry into passion and productivity. Within the book are self-assessments and a step-by-step guide to releasing your business and life potential.
Work is seductive. For some, it can even be addictive. Successful people often claim they love their work. But not everybody who works long hours shares this enthusiasm. The pressure to perform can create unnecessary, destructive stress and leave one physically and emotionally burned out. The difference between burnout and achievement lies in the ability to manage the pressure, the hours, the pace - in having the strength and mental toughness to make your job work for you. Where does this strength come from? The authors found the answer in their work with executives, managers and suprisingly, professional athletes. They discovered these groups share a number of key traits that enable them to withstand high-tension environments and remain focused on their objectives. More importantly, the authors discovered these traits can be developed and intensified. They call this level of mental fitness hyper- performance; and in this step-by-step program, they show you how to reach it. Hyper-Performance is a shape-up program for mental fitness that strengthens your mind's agility, resilience and staying power - and transforms destructive on-the-job stress into vital, creative energy. The foundation of Hyper-Performance is the AIM Superskills strategy. Based on techniques of imagery and relaxation used by top athletes, AIM is a point-by-point, systematic program you can use to achieve optimal performance. Using the AIM strategy, you will learn how to overcome the obstacles - both self-imposed and external - that keep you from performing at your best.
