ABOUT THE SEMINAR
In this peak performance training video, you’ll learn critical thinking skills that can help improve your results in several areas of life. Being exceptional means using thinking skills that go against the way many of us were programmed to think. We learned early on that failure, stress and obstacles are bad things, but that is not necessarily true. Top performers use stress and failure to propel themselves to their next level, so they approach setbacks with different thinking skills and a different mindset. Dr. Eliot has spent numerous hours working with top performers, studying their thinking skills, and figuring out what makes them great. In this interesting and story-filled program, he shares important principles from his findings that explain peak performance, and show you how to practice improved thinking skills.

Most of the people in our population, they’ll spend a lot of hours every day and every week trying to figure out how to avoid failure; trying how to minimize their mistakes, and trying to figure out how to take the safe and cautious path; how to do it the easier way, where the champions are saying, “No, no, no, no, no ─ safe and cautious and easy; that doesn’t cut it if I want to do something exceptional. That’s great at getting me into the middle class. If you pick out the safe, sure, easy path where there aren’t going to be a lot of failures and there aren’t going to be a lot of mistakes, it’s very predictable, you’ll get just that; you’ll get safe, easy, and predictable. Discoveries come out of failure after failure after failure ─ trial and error, right. You fail and you tweak it. You fail and you tweak it. You make changes, you make modifications until “bang,” you hit it. One of the guys that knows this better than anybody that I’ve ever met is Michael Jordan. An interesting thing about Michael Jordan. If you look at this guy ─ and a lot of people say he is perhaps one of the best players every to play the game of basketball. He’s #1 in NBA history in one category. Do you know it is? “He missed the most shots.” Missed shots. He’s missed more shits in his NBA career than anybody else. Now he’s number and 3 and 5 and he’s in the top 10 in a lot of categories, but the one he owns is missed shots and it just so happens, it’s the one he’s most proud of. He’ll talk to you all day about champion shots that he’s missed. Dreaming and envisioning and creating and playing and being innovative, and thinking out of the box, right? It has to do with soul and spirituality, and faith and freedom, right? We can go round and round and round in that box to. That’s the trusting mindset. A great performer that is good at the training mindset and the trusting mindset; one thing we say is they’ve got vision and they’ve got passion, right? They understand what is feels like to be free. They do things because they’re inspired and not just because they’re on a to-do list. Being realistic is justifying negative thinking. “I thought it was an excellent program.” “I was taking all kinds of notes because what he was talking about really does make a difference.” “He was good and easy to listen to.” “He had a great sense of humor.” “He really connects with you.” “He delivers a great message. I like the change in your thinking being positive and not being negative.” “The stories he tells it’s really inspiring.” “A very sincere and genuine person.” “He helped to reconfirm a lot of things in my life that sometimes got out of balance.” “I work really, really hard
