High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard

No matter your position, circumstances, or opportunities in life, you always have the freedom of mind to choose how you experience, interpret, and, ultimately, shape your world ― Brendon Burchard

In our modern era, we have all learned that our fingerprints are unique. Similarly, with the exception of some identical twins, no two persons have the same DNA. Many have come to believe that the same is true in every area of life. We all want to be considered completely unique. Yet, so much of the human experience is shared and is thus very relatable. We have the ability to learn from others’ experiences and identify behaviors and patterns that have been demonstrated successful in the lives of others. If we can, then, identify the people we most want to be like…we can look at the choices they make and the thighs they do. 

In the book, High Performance Habits: How Extraordinary People Become That Way, Brendon Burchard shares the six habits he has identified from more than 20 years of research and coaching. These habits do not require a return to school or the accumulation of wealth. They are not limited to only the elite, but they can be adopted and implemented by any of us.

The first category is Personal Habits. These habits focus on our clarity of thinking, the development of energy, and identifying what is necessary for our life – what is an absolute necessity for our success. The second section of the book identifies social habits that are found in the lives of successful individuals. These three habits are in productivity, influence and courage. Burchard describes courage as not an absence of fear but “acting and persisting regardless of that fear.

Are you open to considering new habits and patterns of thinking? Are you ready to commit to practices that can change your life? These habits may or may not make an immediate difference…but they’re certainly worth consideration. 

What we do with what we have tends to be far more important than what we have in the first place. ― Brendon Burchard
