“Serve, give, do, help your parents and family, organization, teammates, clients,
friends, and others.”– Raj Gavurla
Last week I attended an event where people spoke about their solution for a better living and better future. Afterwards, we took a break and as I networked with people I asked a few people what were the main points of a specific speaker. None of them could tell me. Therefore, it prompted me to write my post on why, how, and what to do when listening to a speaker.
When listening to a speaker, know why you are listening and discover why the speaker is saying what they say.
Listen to how the speaker acknowledges, honors, what are the main points, examples, and stories.
What To Do?
What does the speaker do to connect with the audience. When a speaker connects that means the audience uses emotional intelligence to take this experiential learning and apply it to benefit their situation and benefit extension by telling someone about the speaker and event. Throughout your life you will be able to recall specifics about the speaker and message (it moved you, an example, phrases, sound bites, stories, or statistics) you’ll use at the right time (often and sometimes for decades) to help you succeed in what you are doing.
I recall speakers and their message, examples, phrases, sound bites, stories, or statistics throughout my life. It has a cumulative effect and I recall it when needed at the perfect time. The is the real value of listening to a speaker.
When you have this frame of mind each time you hear someone speak you receive an experiential learning credit.
If their is an internal or external conflict you are experiencing when listening to a speaker, here is my advanced performance and life conflict resolution and idea generation tool. Speaking is the highest form of experiential learning from a person.
I look forward to hearing about the greater value you are receiving from attending events with a speaker.

“Make the decision to become the world’s best. It will serve you well.” – Raj Gavurla
As an athlete regardless of your sport there are times when you aren’t completely “in the zone”, however parts of your game are.
What worked for Roger was him being “in the zone” serving the ball. Being “in the zone” in all areas is best but being “in the zone” in just one area a player is still hard to beat.
Tiafoe is real and when he learns to hit his approach shot with more skill and volley by blocking the ball he will win more and might win a grand slam. Excellent athleticism, very good serve and forehand, solid backhand. Needs to work on consistently transforming his mental performance skills as all players do because that’s what separates the world’s best from other athletes.

How do you better your best? You’re mentally prepared so why the inaction to exercise, make a call, and achieve your goal. You are procrastinating. I understand some things are mentally tiring and you know where that is most likely to happen. You have a threshold and you are afraid to break away from it because of the insecurity it causes you.
Since you are always learning, you need to learn what to know about this threshold experience that’s causing insecurity. When you assess it to deliver by bettering your best with strategy, build a relationship with it, market it in your mind, and evaluate after each effort you are changing the reality of the situation in your mind.
You learned to use solipsism to do your best and with effort you bettered your best. Continue doing so, forward performing, and you’ll far exceed what you imagine success is because of your achievements, the meaningful process, and the right people who came into your life that you had never met before.

“Transform your business with meaningful performance and innovation/entrepreneurial leadership.” – Raj Gavurla
Meaningful Forward Performance Motivation and Inspiration
Win your personal best records and as one constantly does their best consistently they will continue to learn to perform better at what they are doing. On a given day it might be you won a meaningful award and money. It’s this essential aspiration to learn how to win personal best records to perform better at what you are doing that makes what you do meaningful, fun, rewarding, and enjoyable. One will never maximize this if they only work on performance technique. They also need to work on their mental performance skills to transform their performance and innovation/entrepreneurial leadership in business/education, work, sports, and life.
Creative Innovation Tools
You are doing the above and there is still burnout. Why? Because you aren’t innovating to win personal best records since the innovation(s) you have need to continue to develop, build, grow, and/or become what makes you unique and different. There are creative innovation tools to help your neuroplasticity mind. Some say we use one percent to ten percent of our mind’s ability. So that means there’s ninety percent not being used. I posit there is an “endless amount not being used” since you have a neuroplasticity brain.
So now that you understand this concept and are using creative innovation tools why still the burnout? Because entrepreneurial leadership isn’t being exhibited in a meaningful financial (monetize) way because the financial mechanisms (funding and resources), reward mechanisms, incentive mechanisms, and partnering mechanisms were at one time the best, however, now they also need creative innovation(s).
Three questions to transform your business:
1. Are you using your current strategies and innovations to win personal best records?
2. Does your team have an innovation process to create innovation(s)? This isn’t just for individuals in management.
3. Why don’t you work on innovating your business with unique and different entrepreneurial leadership for meaningful better outcomes creating financial mechanisms (funding and resources), reward mechanisms, incentive mechanisms, and partnering mechanisms for forward performance?
Learn how to learn and apply the learning to continue going through living a robust life. It’s meaningful, fun, rewarding, and enjoyable. It’s important to include fun business outings and activities/sports/games on company time for social/networking with each other to get to know each other. Why? Because it makes it easier to transform your business with performance and innovation/entrepreneurial leadership.
This prevents and cures clients, employees, and athletes burnout for meaningful better outcomes. You have gifts, talents, and skills. Develop, build, grow them and discover new gifts, talents, and skills to develop, build, and grow making you unique and different. It’s Friday. What are you looking forward to experiencing this weekend with your family and friends?

“Implement the winning compassionately/fight/flight response.” – Raj Gavurla
The winning compassionately/fight/flight response is an upgrade to the psychology fight/flight response. During our day at work we want better results by consistent performance improvement. When working with teams and during this election year I observe the need for people to work as a team. On a great team each person has a voice for the betterment of the team and to better themself.
However, I’ve seen some team members implement their fight response when they have someone expressing a viewpoint unique from theirs. They communicate their position as does the other person. However, with a not so good team one or both implement their flight response if they don’t hear what they want to hear. They create a sub team because they think the other person is wasting their time and they don’t include their teammate who has a unique viewpoint.
Why? Because they implement their flight response. To them, it’s easier to flee (flight) then have a mature conversation without someone exploding or getting ticked off. Instead of doing so, add a new mental construct called the winning compassionately response.
The winning compassionately response keeps each team member involved and engaged. If done good, it creates better results and teammates learn by seeking to know their teammates to better understand themself. Then, in current and future situations your team and you perform better. It’s a better habit for you and your team to implement. The rewards are enormous. Most notably, you have a more enjoyable and fun workplace (environment), less stress, and your team and you achieve more.
During the presidential political campaign in the The United States of America you hear candidates talk about we need to fight this or that. Implementing their fight/flight response. Instead, how about using the new mental construct, winning compassionately response, for vanguard leadership making America and the world experience winning compassionately by showing the rise of humanity (good prevails over evil).
Continuous maturing, development, and growth brings more peace and prosperity for everyone. There would be a whole lot more progress, achievements, and successes worth talking about than what exists now.
