Helping USA Mens & Womens World Cup Soccer

“We are growing as a person; live more.” – Raj Gavurla

In the USA men’s match versus Venezuela and the Women’s World Cup match versus Spain the good goal keepers made elementary mistakes.  Then last night in the USA Men’s match versus Panama the goalie made less of a mistake and since a goal wasn’t scored against the USA no one commented or they didn’t see it as less of a mistake.

To create and experience human performance and life development and breakthroughs after one session with each goal keeper I would know what are the next step(s).  It’s easy to say the goal keepers know not to do that and say it was poor (not so good showing), change players, and inexperience led to the mistakes.  However, in helping and working with athletes in my private confidential session(s) the reason for the mistakes could be more than technical ability and tactical correction.  It would be inappropriate to guess because it could take more than one session to correct.  If this is needed it has to do with discovering and removing mental, emotional, and physical blocks using my human mental performance skills and then strengthening on the pitch with one session.

However, if it is a technical and tactical issue only then looking at the pictures we see the goalies need to be equipped with performance ques.

Performance Ques: 

  1. If there is one teammate to pass to within distance then the pass is allowed if no opponent is past midfield.
  2. If an opponent is past mid field, and there are two teammates to pass to a pass can be made because the teammate can pass to another teammate to ward off the defender.

However, as you can see in the pictures this wasn’t so, therefore, the goalie need not make the pass.  

Something similar happened in the men’s match versus Panama last night and the teammate’s only option was to quickly kick the ball up field resulting in a turnover.  The goalie could have done better kicking it up field because he had time to read who to play the ball to.

USA men and women are making rewarding progress towards winning the World Cup.  Play soccer the right way for it to happen sooner.

USA men’s soccer is 3-0 in group D in the Gold Cup and the USA women’s soccer plays tomorrow against France in the World Cup.  I’m looking forward to USA men’s soccer playing in the 2022 World Cup.

It’s Backwards; Create Value Add

“When there is value add it becomes easier” – Raj Gavurla

  

Sometime people say things without thinking of the situation, the person they are talking to, their environment, and who is present.  If this happens instead of internalizing giving them the benefit of the doubt use rational critical thinking to do value add.  Both create and receive shared success.

Examples:

1. “Help yourself”  This is backwards.  I’ve heard people say whether directly or about someone they don’t help themselves.  This is similar to giving someone a ten minute silent lunch which the student I mentor received from his teacher because he wasn’t paying attention.  He’s learning and depending on the subject or what we are discussing his attention grows or wanes.  So the answer is to talk about things that keep his attention.  No, because what he’s learning is important and value add to his development, growth, and future.

Applying my expertise in human performance, life, and organizational development and breakthroughs, reality is he wasn’t taught how to pay attention.  Attention is a human performance skill people are challenged with regardless of age, title, or occupation(s).  One of the most prevalent reasons attention is challenging is they have no link(s) in their mind to what they are learning so it can be synthesized and stored into long term memory.

Getting back to “help yourself”.  It’s an oxymoron.  When you help you help someone not yourself.  Yet, some people say this without rational critical thinking and I sometime say it although very rare.

2.  “Hard work” or “Work hard”.  If something is too hard or hard, something is wrong.  It’s “diligent work” or “work diligently”.

Googling the word “diligent” it means:

diligent | Definition of diligent in English by Oxford Dictionaries

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/diligent
Definition of diligent – having or showing care and conscientiousness in one’s work or duties.
 
3.  This notion you aren’t good and have to prove yourself is lunacy.  It’s a bromide.  Your coming from a place of negativity to a place of positive.  Some people call this motivational.  I don’t.  It’s reinforcing a pattern anyone can do without.  You have gifts, talents, and skills. I start with inspiration then motivation to create and achieve value add.  In whatever I do, most important to me is you apply the learning exactly as is and/or using your rational critical thinking achieve more success in all walks of life as applicable and appropriate.
 
4.  Stop telling someone else, yourself, or let someone say you “failed” or rate your performance as “fail”.  It’s insipid  to denigrate and degrade yourself or another person.  Use the words “not so good”.   It’s value add.  This is prevalent in all walks of life including schools and businesses.  Think about it.  Why put someone in a detrimental state of being after they are already disappointed?  Do you want to make it worse?  It’s irrational critical thinking.  Rational critical thinking is the use of the words “not so good”.  This is very powerful and I’ve seen people use it in life, health, business, sports, and more.  When using my daily workbook, the lowest rating of your day is “not so good”.  It’s much easier to come from a place of inspiration and not a place of negativity.  Never know, think, or feel you failed.  Value add is “not so good”.
 
5.  Someone shows you something they worked on, created, a service, product, or say something you’ve never heard of and your response, “what the hell is that”.  Hell is never for the greater good.  Using this word puts both people in a detrimental state of being.  It creates a visceral reaction.  We don’t do that here.  There is a much greater way.  When you talk with someone, share with them, or are in a relationship with a person,  an entity, or object (think of your favorite gift).  It’s either going in a value add direction or negative direction.  It’s never in a neutral place.
 
6.  Here’s an example of value add.  Someone’s advice is “repetitions”.  You’ve heard this from so many people.  How many repetitions have you done?  Do more and you’ll improve, be better, or the best.  That’s like saying if you do this this and that you’ll be “insert your dream or goal”.  Then, those who have this dream or goal would do so.  However, it’s not that simple.  I’ve heard the word “repetitions” in healthcare, in the business of speaking, from world class athletes, and many people in all walks of life achieving if “I do x amount of repetitions” I’ll be able to.  Repetitions has a plateau.  When you reach the plateau repetitions has a diminishing effect.  What’s the solution?  “quality repetitions”
 
“Quality repetitions” makes you not reach a plateau as there is much further for you to go and your outlook on achieving more success is worth looking forward to.  Apply the learning and implement the use of “quality repetitions” to become more skillful and grow your skills.  It’s value add.

How do you make time a non-factor?  Impossible, no.  Here’s how:  Whether at work, watching t.v., attending an event, learning, or hanging out know how much time is allotted. By doing this you free your mind’s capacity.  Include the right research, right preparation, the actual event, and the time to synthesize your thoughts about the event and do  your next value add.  Doing it this way has tremendous value add.  It’s easier for you to apply the learning, remember the event, create value add, and achieve more success in all walks of life.

Examples: 

1.  20 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 1hr, 1.5 hr. keynote

2.  Attending an event (i.e. 2 hours, 1/2 day, full day, 2 days, 3 days, etc.)

3.  Watching sports or a movie on t.v.

4.  Reading or studying

5.  Attending a soccer match

6.  Hanging out with family and/or friends

Remember, do the right research and right preparation to receive much more from what you do in all walks of life.

“I Wish That Didn’t Happen.”

“Innovate Families, Businesses, Communities, and Schools:  It’s about individuals and their people having a better life, better living, and better future.” – Affectionately Endless

  

Sometime people say, “I want to grow as a person or be a better person”, “that happens to people”, “we all have to go”, or “they don’t know what to say”, etc.

Here are nine scenarios to help you and show them you are growing as a person: 

  1.  Someone tells you someone passed away.  Say, “I wish that didn’t happen.”
  2.  Someone says someone is sick (has an illness), Say, “I wish that didn’t happen.”
  3.  Someone’s loved one committed suicide.  Say, “I wish that didn’t happen.”
  4.  A colleague has a passing in their family.  Say, “I wish that didn’t happen.”
  5.  Someone is rehabilitating from a stroke or another condition, experiencing social isolation because of immobility (although caregivers are helping).  All the things and money in the world can’t replace your presence, fulfillment, and the effect you have on a rehabilitating person and more importantly the effect the person has on you.  It is an essential part of you growing as a person and their treatment from social isolation.  Are you only there in good times?  Or, are you able to cherish their presence in this world.  For both you see life is amazing and we have to find ways to grow life, a better living, and a better future.  If they ask why did this happen?, Say, “I wish that didn’t happen.”
  6. You don’t have the right support system.  Say, “I wish that didn’t happen.”
  7. The doctor and health care professional doesn’t know how to intrinsically inspire and motivate you.  They say you aren’t getting better because “you don’t want to”.  Say, “I wish that didn’t happen”.
  8. A colleague isn’t performing or your kid isn’t performing because you think, “they don’t want to.”  That’s not being a colleague (teammate) or parent.  Say, “I wish that didn’t happen.”
  9. If your calendar doesn’t allow for this essential aspect of growing as a person, I say, “I wish that didn’t happen.”

Instead, what I hear is silence.  You mean well.  You might have said a silent prayer.  However, using the sentence, “I wish that didn’t happen.” creates a robust consciously conscious being state so you are involved with breakthroughs, advancements, and their records to mobility and independence.  You’ll experience life growth and sensations beyond anything you can describe, buy, or implement into your life.  “I wish that happened more often.”

See, you like me at one time think everything is setup to thrive.  I’m here to tell you you’ve created and live in an incubator and it’s precisely your ability to expand out into people’s lives that connects you to grow your life, a better living, and better future.  You might be inspired and motivated to create a solution.  That’s innovating families, businesses, communities, and schools.  This is a meaningful, interesting, and intelligent way to grow as a person.

As you see when you apply my mental and physical tools and techniques and for paying clients much better highly individually customized and team customized mental and physical tools and techniques, you learn that everything I do is research based, however, it’s my expertise and skills that make it applicable to you.

It’s meaningful, interesting, and intelligent to help and work with you because although I’m getting paid seeing you make developments, breakthroughs, records, and growing as a person is nostalgic, very fulfilling, and your support of my work is what makes it possible for me to create and customize programs (keynotes, learning sessions, clinics, workshops, facilitation, coaching, and consulting).

My “The Zone” & “The Zone Effect”

My IT Band was injured so I reduced the intensity of my workout sessions and took some time off.  I’ve been using my foam roller and the dipping bird exercise and an exercise I learned while pursuing semi-pro basketball.  The basketball exercise gave me immediate patella tendinitis homeostasis after refereeing World Cup (it’s their World Cup) adult league coed and mens matches.

The point is I applied learning from years ago to help me heal this injury using an exercise that for me has multi-purposes.  Me and my exercise functional physiology trainer have been working on this.  She’ll like me talking to her about this.

Apply The Relationship of Your Inspiration & Motivation

“Take your current best and make it better with development and breakthroughs “

– Raj Gavurla

Growing your productive performance process is essential because it allows you to achieve development, breakthroughs, and records towards your greatest dreams and goals – they become greater.   When helping my client they either have motivation or want and need motivation.  I tell them to talk about it.  We do so in our session.  I ask why haven’t you said anything about your inspiration?   The silence or response is highly individual.

Your intrinsic inspiration creates greater intrinsic and extrinsic inspiration rewards.  Your intrinsic motivation creates greater intrinsic and extrinsic motivation rewards.  When you apply the relationship of your inspiration and motivation they have an inseparable relationship.  Your intrinsic inspiration and motivation creates greater intrinsic and extrinsic rewards.

Your intrinsic inspiration and motivation is highly individualized.  During my client’s sessions, I help and work with them to understand why the relationship of their inspiration and motivation creates greater intrinsic and extrinsic rewards.

“The Zone” (Individual) & “The Zone Effect” (Team)

When I’m performing my goal is being “in the zone” more often.  When I am, my teammates are “in the zone” and each has “the zone effect” development, breakthroughs, and records.  When the team talks about it it’s a fun relationships and learning experience.

This is important.  Only be “in the zone” when performing.  During your sessions of rest, relaxation, social outlets, and hobbies have fun and enjoyment.  Be your authentic self so you don’t have to be someone else.  It’s invigorating!

What Are Your Fun Win More Living Better Outcomes?

“We want to win more fun living better outcomes.” – Raj Gavurla

What are your win more fun living better outcomes?

Decades ago I had an epiphany “win” and over the decades this is what I learned:

In order to win you need to dream and have goals.  It’s known without the ability to dream you would go insane.  Yet, so many people leave dreams to fate and are not consciously conscious about dreaming, how to interpret and apply their unexpected dreams, and what their nightmares mean.

Secondly, stop comparing yourself to others.  Sure, you can do research to have a barometer, however, it’s your value add that makes the difference. You are at your unique and different place interconnected with your life, business, and sports.  Therefore, how does your life interconnect with your goals and what is the right support system for you.  This is where for each of your goals you form the right support system consisting of helpful services.

Thirdly, people are not living better outcomes.  See your knowledge, experience, skills, and passion for more fulfillment isn’t just to win.  What are the living better outcomes?  This is when the endorphins flow.  As you achieve living better outcomes, the wins become easier and you win more fun enjoying success and most importantly it’s more fulfilling.

Fourthly, in the interconnected of your life, business, and sports consistently have skills in each you are developing, building, and growing.  For each skill to migrate to the next stage you intelligently work by consistently scheduling sessions to learn how to learn, that are challenging towards a breakthrough in each stage.

A breakthrough is something you can develop, build, and grow and at times they ignite personal bests.  Examples of breakthroughs are:

  1. You’re celebrating life’s fondest moments with your family, teammates, community, and others.  This could be a special occasion/event, someone’s birthday, graduation, better job, birth of a child, or a reunion. Could be you helped your sister learn to ride a bike and when you let go after several attempts she takes off and you never have to help her again.
  2. You’re the third person in the company to interface to a particular system.
  3. You set a record in [insert business objective/goal].
  4. You ran a 10k after playing tennis when your intent was to run two miles because you felt and experienced “the zone.”.  After this breakthrough, you’re productive performance process foundation grows.
  5. You’re feeling effortless getting to the ball instead of having to exert a lot of effort.
  6. Your company won the innovation award in your industry and received the largest reward of the ten entries.

Therefore, consistently work intelligently challenging towards a breakthrough(s) with sessions for relaxation, social outlet, and hobbies. 

In helping and working with individuals, teams, and athletes interconnected with their life, business, and sports, they sometime have a business goal or objective to set a record.  This makes sense.  What doesn’t make sense is the learning from each other and work wasn’t fulfilling and you haven’t grown your productive performance process foundation because it’s not sustainable, teammates became worn out, or injury prone.  There were no sessions for relaxation, social outlet, and hobbies. This isn’t a way towards a fulfilling vibrant business or athlete.

In helping athletes at any level including a national athlete it’s not about win Olympic gold and medals.  It’s much greater.  It’s about living your greatest dreams and goals they become greater.  What are your fond memories, you won gold, the relationships, breakthroughs, successes, and records? You learned from your  support system, modeled someone, or many, however, it was your value add that made and make breakthroughs in you living your greatest dreams and goals they become greater.  That’s essential!

Learn how to learn and apply the learning.

“The Zone” (Individual) & “The Zone Effect” (Team)
I’m consistently developing, building, and growing my track sessions, tempo runs, and there is no way I could do so without my right support system (me and applying my expertise, track session organizer, exercise functional physiologist trainer, my family).  This is important.  Effectively and efficiently communicate with the people important to you about where and what you are doing.  If you don’t, they will diminish your energy creating mental, emotional, and/or physical block(s).  Instead, I tell them “I’m going to track. Wish me good luck” and they do.  Wow!  Energy is flowing.

Greenville, SC’s professional soccer team, Greenville Triumph, won their inaugural home opener 2-1 versus the Lansing Ignite.  It was sold out.  As I watched standing on the deck, I read the plays coming towards me.  In an instant, calmness became breakthroughs as the athletes ran towards me.  Although Lansing scored first, the ball was on their side of the field most of the first half and second half. Triumph won more fun living better outcomes.

You (The Person) Are Your Greatest Technology

“Take Care of Your Mind.  It’s The Only Place You Live.”

– Raj Gavurla

Your interconnected mind, body, heart, spirit, and soul is much greater technology than the sports watch you buy. If you don’t have one of these, then the ones you do have is much greater technology.  I’m inclusive.  I accept the person the way they are.

Buy a sports watch so you don’t think about time, distance, number of steps, heart rate, fatigue, cadence, ECG, sleep, too much sitting, calories, active time, max speed, average speed, etc. interconnected with your life, business, and your exercise (sports, yoga, hiking, walk, etc.).

You experience more effective and efficient workouts when you let the watch handle this. With the interconnected greater technology of your mind, body, heart, spirit, and soul you feel and experience “the zone” and “the zone effect” development, breakthroughs, and records.

“The Zone” (Individual) & “The Zone Effect” (Team):  For example, the “selfless” quality means they have, need, and want “the zone” for them self, each of their teammates and they have, need, and want “the zone effect” for their team living their respective greatest dreams and goals.

Your Development, Breakthroughs, and Records

“You are “The Zone” Performer, an Elite Performer, High Performer, Good Performer, or new to human performance and life. Performers grow their inner voice mind to create development, performance improvements, breakthroughs, and set personal best records.  You are growing as a person, interconnected with your life, business, and sport(s).  Your “The Zone Effect” Development, Breakthroughs, & Records.” – Raj Gavurla

Your Inner Voice Mind (listen to your body, what you learn, see, feel, hear, smell, taste, intuition, heart, spirit, soul)  

To experience performance improvements, breakthroughs, and records grow your inner voice mind.  What are ways to do so in a fulfilling, easier, fun, and enjoyable way?

  1.  What do you program into you?  Are you watching, listening to, and reading inspiring, motivating, and success into you?  Or, are you watching, listening to, and reading depressing and sad inputs into you.  One grows you as a person and the other doesn’t.
  2. Your self-talk (grow your inner voice mind).  It’s natural when striving for performance improvements, breakthroughs, and records to regulate stress, pressure, fear, anxiety, intensity, effort, and energy.  Since you have an inner voice mind (if you asked what inner voice mind, that inner voice mind), one way to regulate stress, pressure, fear, anxiety, intensity, effort, and energy is with your inner voice mind.  It’s your subtle inner voice mind.
  3. With you inner voice mind (conscious real time) listen to your body.  With your inner voice mind on a scale from 0 to 10 (highest) the numbers specific to you regulate stress/tension (cortisol, adrenals), pressure, fear (amygdala), depressed (past, serotonin), anxiety (future), concentration/focus (see, visualize), intensity, effort, reward (dopamine), energy (flow), and endorphins (flow).

Example (working on your project, attending a meeting, or preparing for a sporting event):

  1. If stress/tension is a 7 lower it to a 1, if pressure is a 5 lower it to a 1, if fear is a 6 lower it to a 1, if anxiety is a 6 lower it to a 1.
  2. If concentration/focus is a 0 raise it to the right number for you, if intensity is a 0 raise it to the right number for you, if effort is a 0 raise it to the right number for you, if reward is a 0 raise it to the right number for you, if energy is a 0 raise it to the right number for you, and if endorphins are a 0 raise it to the right number for you.

Your inner voice mind is a practical skill for you to use.  Before doing anything whether at work, sports, and life use your inner voice mind to listen to your body to set your performance improvements, breakthroughs, and records being in your optimal performance being state.   Then, since you already know the performance improvements, breakthroughs, and records (that’s done).  Now concentrate/focus on performing in real time.  You’ve optimized your mind’s resources to help you achieve the best.  During your recovery is when you strengthen yourself.  This is when you grow your inner voice mind listening to your body for relaxation, spending time with your family, friends, hobbies, and leisure.

The absence of stress/tension, pressure, fear, and anxiety and the right number concentration/focus, intensity, effort, reward, energy, and endorphins for you is “The Zone” & “The Zone Effect”.

My mom made a breakthrough and set a record for the length of time she balancing on her own.  She is recovering from a stroke.  I want her to use her abs and obliques to balance and grow her inner voice mind to overcome come the fear (amygdala) of losing balance.  This success is strengthening her mind/body (mind, heart, body, spirit, and soul).  We are building on her success.

Someone posed the questions do you teach in the workplace and when playing sports the use of positive emotional energy release: emotional arousal fun & enjoyment? How can suppressing positive emotional energy with no out let actually be negative to a teammate’s (colleague/client) performance?

Throughout my business career, I’ve observed, helped, and worked with individuals and teammates (colleagues & clients). Bosses and supervisors your employees do dream, need, and want to perform more success continuum for their organization, bosses, supervisors, and teammates (colleagues & clients). Since at the time I wasn’t an excelling expert in human performance, life, organizational development & breakthroughs, I didn’t know why, how, critical thinking performance que, see slow motion (everything slows down), and feel performance que power and control to apply the learning for ourselves.

Some experiences I apply today from the workplace are:

My first professional job I was selected to interview and the job was taken. Because the interviewer, Max Bunner, liked my communication skills he recommended me for another job opening at the organization in Crystal City, VA. During on boarding, I met several people including two who said, Max was very complementary about my communication skills. This is the most important skill a person makes development and breakthroughs in is their ability to learn to communicate with people’s unique and different backgrounds, culture, dreams, goals, experiences, and skill sets.

At this job I would eat lunch often with a teammate (colleague) outside sometime from a gyro cart. As we ate, talked, and watched people, I finished eating much sooner than Curtis. I was a fast eater. It amazed me how Curtis finished eating in an hour. Today, when I eat I think of two people. Curtis, so I enjoy my food and conversation more and my trainer, Ron. I think of Ron because of no fried foods and drink slowly.

At another job, I would be working and an explosion with expletives came from the person sitting in a cubicle opposite of me to release stress. He was a DCS application engineer and I never asked him about his tirade. Nothing flew and it wasn’t against anyone it was his way of releasing stress when working with technology. He was a high performer who I did learn from and was much further than me in career progression. Today, I would talk to him about it. If he saw someone’s kid visiting our office, he would never explode.  Every time I shut down a computer I wait one minute before powering it up because of a former colleague (teammate) named Chris.  It reduces the number of computer crashes.

In athletics, we see examples to learn from. In every sport athletes use positive emotional energy release: emotional arousal fun & enjoyment. Who are the players to learn from in your favorite sports?

Some players like Bjorn Borg and Naomi Osaka, use very little. However, both Borg and Osaka do so with their body language and eyes. Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams use more and Roger Federer implemented the use of more in his career progression.

Not using positive emotional energy release: emotional arousal fun & enjoyment takes away fulfillment, teammates (colleagues/clients) and athletes ability to perform more success continuum to Better “The Zone Effect”, fun, and enjoyment.

How do you know how to use positive emotional energy release: emotional arousal fun & enjoyment, right body language, with or without sound effects, and with or without the right words to release emotional energy and endorphins to release stress, tension, and anxiety?  It depends on the individual teammates (colleagues/clients) and athletes needs and wants. 

By using positive emotional energy release: emotional arousal fun & enjoyment you create an electro-chemical reaction to feel quicker (electro-physiology) and stronger (chemical bond). 

When used the right way it creates calmness, relaxation, concentration, confidence, resiliency, and social cohesion. As an excelling human performance, life, and organizational development and breakthroughs expert, here’s my advanced human performance tool to Better “The Zone Effect” for you to better yourself for win better outcomes continuum = more success continuum; more win comes to us (teammates/clients) gift for others. .

Apply the learning.

“The Zone” (Individual) & “The Zone Effect” (Team):

“The Zone” & “The Zone Effect” is described as making a performance improvement and breakthroughs, everything is in slow motion (everything slows down), time stands still (isn’t a deterring factor), and your life and performance feels effortless.  Neither is repeatable.  You are growing as a person, congruent, in connection with your life, business/work, and sport(s) is Better “The Zone Effect”

My “The Zone Effect”: 

Contacted by media to do a video interview, helping and working with private clients, my mom is making wellness breakthroughs, and using the word “float” at the right time when running track.

Why Do You Quit?

“Reward people more frequently instead of using incentives that don’t create solutions for better outcomes continuum and are all or nothing.” – Raj Gavurla 

High Value Capital Rewarding

Examples of rewarding people more frequently:

  1.  When you have a good job and are paid with incentives for better outcomes continuum and you receive an unexpected package for doing your job well.  It’s a letter with a significant contribution award, and a check (insert the dollar amount), it’s a letter with an outstanding achievement award, and a check (insert the dollar amount), it’s a promotion, it’s more responsibility with relationship capital with better pay and incentives.
  2. It’s additional education/learning/training to work on and working on an innovative project to help your organization and teammates to make breakthroughs is your life and career.
  3. It’s sharing appropriately with your colleagues (teammates) to create better teamwork and learn how to be better colleagues (teammates). 
  4. It’s being promoted.
  5. It’s being flexible to understand your colleague (teammate) needs flex time and rearrangement of work to take care of a family member.
  6. It’s learning how to better yourself to better your boss, colleagues (teammates).
  7. Insert your examples.  Do your employees know this exists in your organization?
  8. It’s not all or nothing incentives and it’s not fear of punishment.  Neither is inspiring and motivating. 
  9. It’s some win more, each wins, and no one loses unless there is violence.

Examples of using rewards and incentives for better outcomes continuum:

  1. A 401k plan incrementally and fully vested after five years.
  2. Paying for support services in human performance, life, and organizational development and breakthroughs to help and work together to make breakthroughs in nurturing, developing, building, growing, and evolving your organization.
  3. It’s learning why, how, and what to do to innovate for a cultural and entrepreneurial leadership ecosystem continuum. 
  4. Making personnel decisions
  5. Voting rights on the direction of the organization
  6. Employee stock purchase plan.
  7. Options incrementally increasing and maturing with service.
  8. Percentage of company ownership.
  9. It’s using diversity and inclusive for more strategic effectiveness and systemic efficiencies.  
  10. It’s having business and corporate social responsibility in the workplace and being a corporate community citizen so there is no poverty. 

Why do you quit?

Why do you quit?  At this stage in your life and career live your greatest dreams, mission, vision, clear goals, and aspirations – they become greater by helping others (people) live their greatest dreams, mission, vision, clear goals, and aspirations – they become greater.  Living purposefully is essential and quitting is usually attributed to “you (or they) don’t want to.” This is superficial. As an excelling expert in human performance, life, and organizational development and breakthroughs, there are three primary reasons why you quit.

One, you’re not making performance improvement and breakthroughs. To make performance improvement and breakthroughs one needs breakthroughs in learning to nurture, develop, build, grow, evolve, and make breakthroughs in each.  What are your examples?  It’s simple and measure able.  If it’s hard, something is wrong.  With my mental performance skills and life tools I make breakthroughs. See my Seven Steps: Live Your Greatest Dreams, Mission, Vision, Clear Goals, and Aspirations – They Become Greater at the end of my post.

Two, you’re hurt (injured) physically and/or mentally. Having the right treatment and the right support services makes it easier.  What are your examples?  It’s simple and measure able.  If it’s hard, something is wrong.  With my mental performance skills and life tools I make breakthroughs.  See my Seven Steps: Live Your Greatest Dreams, Mission, Vision, Clear Goals, and Aspirations – They Become Greater at the end of my post.

Three, you do not have the right resources to nurture, develop, build, grow, evolve, and make breakthroughs in each. This includes high value financial, health, and relationships.  What are your examples?  It’s simple and measure able.  If it’s hard, something is wrong.  With my mental performance skills and life tools I make breakthroughs.  See my Seven Steps: Live Your Greatest Dreams, Mission, Vision, Clear Goals, and Aspirations – They Become Greater at the end of my post.

Here are my seven steps to help you experience breakthroughs in learning to nurture, develop, build, grow, evolve, and make breakthroughs so you don’t quit.  

Better “The Zone Effect”

When you endlessly learn knowing how to be a better colleague (teammate) your job (work) is much more rewarding and fun.  Most places are trying to out do one another instead of consistently becoming better colleagues (teammates).  When you are able to consistently bring out the gifts, talents, and skills in you and your colleagues (teammates) with the right learning and support services you Better “The Zone Effect”.  Many are familiar with “The Zone” however since you are not on this planet by yourself Better “The Zone Effect” is to better you, your teammates, team, and supervisor(s) and boss(es) for more win more fun rewarding.  Why not have everyone participating and making individual, colleagues (teammates), team, and organization development and breakthroughs?

Think of a project where this occurred.  How can you nurture, develop, build, grow, and evolve making performance improvements and breakthroughs so this consistently occurs?  I’ve been on many teams and this is what determines the amount of success and rewards.

When playing basketball what inspires and motivates me are being on the court with my teammates.  We help and support each other and it’s a feeling I can’t fully describe.  Yes, I play basketball to Better “The Zone Effect”.    Besides playing for my teammates, I’m also playing for my coaches, fans, city, and my crowd (advanced mental performance skill) .
