Presence Equals Performance

Presence equals performance. Being present is your most natural state, the state you were born in and grew up with. Yet the state in adulthood we struggle to maintain.

How do we lose our presence and what are the consequences? How can we be more present and what would the benefits be? 

When you are present, you are experiencing your own presence. Being present is a gift you give to yourself, and when you give yourself this gift, it supports your happiness, fulfilment, and ability to achieve your full potential.

As Abraham Maslow attested to, people who are established in the here and now are self-actualised people. They are people who are fulfilling their potential. Why? Because your potential, your full potential is found in the present.

“One cannot choose wisely for a life unless he dares to listen to himself, his own self, at each moment of his life.” – Abraham Maslow

It’s not found in your thoughts. It’s not found in the future, or the past or things. It’s found in a state of being which can only be experienced by being right here, right now.

It just so happens that peak performance occurs in this same space, as does perfect health, infinite creativity, and our ability to tap into our intuition and take right action. Whether you are a Mum, Dad, a top leader or a world-class athlete, peak performance is all achieved through accessing this magical place called the present moment.

Take my 7-Day Mindfulness challenge to increase your presence. Over the next 7 days, three times a day or more, just stopbreathe and focus totally on what you are doing. Feel your presence and cultivate it. Give yourself this gift daily and notice the benefits that you experience. I would love to hear about them from you.
