These 4 internet marketing peak performance tips aren’t found in any internet marketing course. I’ve gleaned them from a discussion panel 6 of the League of Extraordinary Minds.
Read the most important points from almost 2 hour long discussion of experts that may never get together again and learn how to perform at your very best all the time.
The League of Extraordinary Minds has lasted for 9 sessions and then ceased to exist. You can read about that and what was in the last session in my post which Google values highly: League of Extraordinary Minds Panel 9.
The collection of experts and the two moderators, Rich Schefren and Jay Abraham were discussing peak performance for people in any business, not just internet marketing. Please keep that in mind. I have made my notes and write this post from the angle and perspective of internet marketers because I’m learning to be one and so are most of my readers.
But all the people involved in the discussion do have a website or a blog or contribute to one and all of them recognize the importance of internet marketing and of having a presence online.
Before we start, let me point out that I made more than 20 pages of notes from the event and that what is below is the best of what was said as I see it.
What everybody in any business but especially in online business is asking is this:
How Can I Get Maximum Results From Minimum Efforts?
And the sub question which the panel 6 revolved around was this:
How To Operate At Peak Performance To Get The Best Results In Everything You Do
As you may expect there was more than one answer to this question. A lot of introductory and exploratory discussion went on and different opinions and philosophies were expressed.
Here is what I found the most valuable out of the 2 hour (minus 10 minutes) marathon:
Rich Schefren – How can entrepreneurs make peak performance a permanent part of who they are and not just another passing fad?
Dan Millman – What I’d like to share is perhaps the biggest challenge and maybe the biggest secret in the world. What is the biggest challenge? It’s turning what we know into what we actually do. The key to turning what we know into what we actually do is to start small.
Simple is powerful because we’re more likely to do it. It’s what we maintain day to day that’s going to make a difference, those little habits.
Tom McCarthy – I think in the beginning it has to become a ritual. When we require a new thought to perform at a higher level or a new emotion that we’re not comfortable at having or whatever, in the beginning it’s always going to feel awkward. It’s always going to feel like oh, that is just not me.
You need to ritualize it. You need to make a commitment to do it on a consistent basis.
They say the first 22 times you do it, it’s going to feel really strange. Your brain is going to be firing at a higher level, so it’s going to feel weird. After about 50 times you start to become more comfortable but it starts with a ritual.
So the first thing is you need a ritual. Ideally something in the morning and something as you’re going to bed. That’s a minimum.
Number two is building in some down time. Peak performance is not something you’re doing every minute of the day 100% of the time.
The human mind and body is not meant to do that. You need some down time too, otherwise it’s going to be something you can’t maintain and you’ll burn out.
Kathy Kolbe – The answer is so simple. You have to be yourself. You have to be authentic. You have to be free to be who you are. You don’t just go in and do that tomorrow or next week until you’ve cut the next deal. You do it every day the rest of your life.
If you continue to be who you are and you don’t compromise that and you fight for the freedom to be who you are you will always be at peak performance – always.
Josh Waitzkin – I’d recommend becoming allergic to being untrue to yourself. To be constantly asking yourself if you’re being organic, consistent, if you are acting in harmony with what your intuition is telling you.
I think that if we get into the habit of taking on our weaknesses, of building our strengths, it’s very important to take on our weaknesses through the prism of our strengths. That’s a really important idea.
People can take these types of ideas too far. They can just address their weaknesses and they get fixated on them and then can spend their whole life focused on their weaknesses.
It’s very important to spend your life focused on the style in which you naturally learn things best and you can build your game around that.
That really relates to being at peace with who you are – embracing who you are.
That’s the end of the panel 6 session coverage.
What do you think about the above peak performance tips? Can you apply any of them or all of them in your Internet marketing endeavors?
There is a bit of contradiction among what the 4 panelists had to say. Have you noticed that? I think that there is a very fine line between being ourselves and seeking improvement. The two don’t need to necessarily oppose each other.

It seems that the recommendations are; 1) Be true to yourself, be honest and genuine. 2) Develop habits/routines into your daily life to get things done. 8)
Can’t argue with that. It’s easier and more satisfying to be true to yourself, than to try and live any other way. 🙄
Planning routines into my daily life is something I have been doing for at least 20 years as a marathon runner. You can’t run 70 to 100 miles per week without planning, and developing routines that you don’t have to think about, they just happen naturally.
20 miles per week happens on auto-pilot, because I run them before breakfast, when I’m not properly awake. 😆

You’ve got it. It seems very clear to you. I didn’t know you are such a good runner. To me running a marathon seems like a big feat that I’d have to train for at least for six month.
Planning is still one of my weaknesses and developing new routines is something that I have to work on too.
Perhaps I can learn something from you. Having things under control is a good place to be.
Thanks for the insightful comment.
Of course we need to be our selves, we are just cheating if we try and be someone else. What a boring world this would be if we were all trying to be the same.
Think, grow, learn and practice, practice, practice and practice some more. Give ourselves challenges so we can improve our lives. As John is a marathon runner and it is easy for him to run a marathon. I bet he is always wanting to improve his time.
He knows he can run a marathon quite easily but doing what he knows can improve that little more.
When I first started out in Internet Marketing I had not a clue about all the things we needed to learn. So taking smaller actions daily to get to the end goal is vital. Like building a website. There are loads of different things to consider but taking it one step at a time is vital.
Doing small tasks each day will help to get to our end goal than trying to take everything on all at once.

Thanks for commenting. You have a good grasp of the way to proceed towards peak performance it seems. From what I can see a lot of people have a hard time being themselves. There are a lot of expectations putting pressure on us since early age and for sure once we start going to school. That can result in us wanting to be like somebody else, usually like one example or another that we are being given.
Of course, trying to be like somebody else will only lead to frustration.
I think the best way to be is to be at our best which can keep on improving. One thing at a time.
It’s all great advice but the main message coming out of this is – consistency.
I like the bit about starting small and building on it through consistent actions, anybody can do this so there is no excuse for procrastination.
Being true to ourselves is also important, as anybody trying to be something they are not, are quickly found out.
I shall return.

I think you are right about consistency. When we start learning something new, applying it consistently doesn’t come easy.
Staring with small actions and doing them consistently will do more than sporadic big actions. Procrastination tends to happen more likely when we have too much to do which is overwhelming and we don’t know where to start. That can lead to paralysis and doing nothing.
Being true to ourselves is the way to be but as obvious and easy as it sounds we sometimes are kidding ourselves. A part of it is making excuses to our own selves.
Doing what we know is one of the points in the discussion that stood out for me.
I have a long way to go in that department. I certainly know a lot more than I’m applying and using.
That realization can and will lead to doing more.
Thank you for your comment and I’ll be looking forward to your return and reading more of your comments.
This is a great insight into some great minds! I especially like this quote from Dan Millman “It’s turning what we know into what we actually do…”, very powerful words!
I like your new blog header Vance, your site’s looking great.

I’m glad you like the insights and it’s interesting that the saying of Dan Millman you chose is also one of my favorites. Probably the favorite number one in fact. It’s kind of obvious but it really is so true and something that I suspect most people need to implement.
It’s great that you like my new header. You’re the first person who commented about that. Thank you.
Thank you for the visit and for commenting about the content of the post and what your favorite quote is. It’s nice to see that we have a similar taste in some areas.
I look forward to your next visit.
I like this article. To measure anything we always compare past results.”Peak performance” is all about the results. Sometimes we give more input but couldn’t get results as per our expectation and sometimes vice versa . I think Objective should be very clear before doing any task. Imagination and planning should be feasible and their synchronization with execution. Thanks for this article. This article makes to think positive. Sometimes small messages can click our brain. Thanks.

Thank you for commenting. It’s great that you find the 4 tips very helpful. That’s a nice reward for writing the post. I hope that you’ll stop by again soon and comment on my other posts.
All the best,
Great post with some great suggestions. I think so many people are worried about trying to make money online today and they all just want to copy what the pro’s are doing when they aren’t really passionate about those topics. It’s also nice to see a blogger who tries to respond to his comments.

Welcome to my blog. I do reply to comments I don’t just try to. Of course if they say nothing or are just a lip service I throw them into trash. I’m guessing that you like the tip on being yourself. I think the theme was mentioned in more of them. Copying others doesn’t bring very good results. Passion can be developed or appear suddenly later. It can also be lost by those who have it. I wouldn’t put too much emphasis on it even though it’s important. People who are passionate about something just are that way. They don’t spend any time talking about it.
Thank you for the comment and I’ll see you here soon.
I enjoyed Josh Waitzken’s comments. I am learning to use my intuition. I’m seeing fruits. It’s a process.

I’m glad you enjoyed Josh Waitzkein views. It’s great that you are making progress.
The competition has doubled on the internet marketing front….i see some good advice on there but one has to be consistent with the efforts. Good post
I enjoyed Tom McCarthys oppinions and thoughts, indeed – everyone’s opinion is absolutly great, they’re pros. In order to get the best results, or even at least the ‘good results’ you must work really hard and work the correct way. It’s very important to keep ourselves motivated in order to work efficient and constantly, we must work harder and harder to keep the quality high. Thanks for sharing this, very inspirational!

Great post there. Staying at the top of your game can be VERY difficult, no doubt. Especially when trying to stay there all the time.
