by | Mar 7, 2022 | Podcast

Episode Summary

​Have you ever felt the motivation to write a life-changing book but found the actual process somewhat challenging? Peak Performance Coach, Brian Mariani shares his tips for avoiding procrastination and staying at peak performance levels, even when the road gets rocky.

4:48 How do you define peak performance? 

If you aren’t asking yourself this question daily, maybe it’s time to consider doing so! We discuss how asking yourself this question can help eliminate the things from your life that aren’t serving you to ultimately help you make better decisions and get your book done.

8:15 What can you do to change your mindset and move past procrastination (or the “Monday Mindset,” as Brian calls it)?

Monday, you say you’re going to work on your book (but you don’t). Then Tuesday. Then Wednesday. And days turn into weeks turn into decades, and you still haven’t finished your manuscript. How do you stop the snowball effect? Brian combines scientific principles with powerful everyday habits to help you defeat procrastination.

13:12 How can you prevent emotions and a fear of failure from hijacking your motivation to write? 

You can never be the next New York Times bestselling author if your emotions trick you into thinking you aren’t good enough or that nobody wants to read the story you want to write.

18:54 How can you use self-discipline to effectively stop negative thoughts dead in their tracks, right in the moment? 

Our brains are powerful machines. And just like many machines, they can be re-programmed. Christine and Brian talk about some simple ways to stop the negative self-talk that you can begin to put into practice today.

23:15 These strategies will help you do more than just write your book. 

Brian shares three ways these principles extend into other areas of your life as well.

26:35 Important takeaway

Brian shares his most important takeaway to help you express your highest and best self, the way you were always destined to.
