Complacency is a Killer

When you’ve enjoyed sustained success for so long, it’s easy to fall into a complacent routine.

Success seems to come easily. And you know that you have the talents needed to emulate it.

In the Warriors’ case, complacency could lead to them training a little less vigorously.

It could lead to them underestimating teams that have adapted to the Warriors’ style.

And that could lead to disaster for them on the court.

It almost did in the regular season that just ended.

A heavy schedule led to the team dropping games as they slipped slightly into complacency.

They recovered and learned something important.

The heavy schedule that grinds on them is the exact schedule that other teams envy.

That’s going to prove such an important motivator for the rest of the playoffs.

Acknowledging that they have something that everyone else wants will allow them to keep improving.

After all, they want to be ahead of the pack rather than part of the chase.

Find Ways to Motivate Yourself.

You may be one of the top salespeople at your organisation right now.

Like the Warriors, you earn plaudits constantly for your success.

Don’t allow this to make you complacent.

Customer needs and the business environment both evolve over time.

What works right now may not work in the future.

And there are always other salespeople waiting in the wings to take your crown.

Use these things as motivators so you can push yourself to keep developing.

Frontier Performance can help you to avoid complacency in sales.

Boosting Results With Meditation

While most sports teams focus solely on the physical, the LA Lakers have long understood the importance of the mental game.

Without emotional resilience, it’s impossible to overcome the biggest challenges that you’ll face. In the Laker’s case, many of their best players use meditation to overcome the mental barriers.

Kyle Kuzma is a great example. There are plenty of photos on the web that show him meditating while sitting on the bench at a game.

He’s using the process to calm his mind and prepare for the rush of getting called onto the court.

Former Lakers coach Phil Jackson introduced the practice to many of the team’s players back in the early-2000s.

And even their superstar player, LeBron James, uses it:

“…I got more and more comfortable with my inner self, inner spirits, and inner energy and things of that nature, I guess. So it works for me.”

You Can Use Meditation Too.

Stress has many masks that people struggle to fully understand.

But what we do know is that it can affect every aspect of your life. You struggle personally and your sales performance dips.

At Frontier Performance, we practice the Frontier Guided Meditation process to calm our minds and perform better.
