Have you ever thought what is the difference between successful people and 'common people'? We're all given the same 24 hours in a day. However, some people are widely more successful than we do. Most people aren’t focused and don’t want it badly enough. They gave up when the going got tough or when they faced adversity. Does this sound familiar to someone you know?

You know you want to achieve the best results in your life, but knowing something doesn’t always make it easy to attain. To achieve peak performance, you don’t have to go at it alone. Achieving peak performance isn’t easy, but it will be much easier to attain if you follow the blueprint below.

So, what is the secret to accomplishing peak performance? Masterful athletes understand how to reach peak performance through mindset and lifestyle – lessons we can all apply to reach our full potential.

When it comes to achieving peak athletic performance, it’s not practice makes perfect – it’s perfect practice makes perfect. Perfect practice means visualizing reaching your goal, so you’re primed for success when it’s time to take action. Imagery training lets you practice with certainty and execute without hesitancy.

Your mental health is as vital to peak performance as your physical fitness. You must stay true to yourself to find real meaning in anything you do. If you’re feeling distracted or uninspired, it’s time to recover your spark. Letting go of unhealthy habits and attachments goes a long way to regain your true self.

Exercise and recovery form the two-sided coin of athleticism. When your mind and body are fit and well-rested, you’re able to stay at the top of your game. To achieve peak athletic performance, you must allow the body to replenish itself. Experts may recommend state-of-the-art recovery technologies like hydrotherapy, compression, and massage for high-performing athletes to enhance performance.

Sleep deprivation means peak performance deprivation. Without proper sleep, you wake up to meet the day feeling forgetful, foggy, and unfocused. You grab your cup of coffee to get a charge on your brain, which completely depletes your brain function for the day, making your brain even more exhausted.

Good sleep improves your ability to be patient, retain information, think clearly, make good decisions, and be present and alert in all your daily interactions. Sleep is your time off from problem-solving.

When you get the proper rest, your brain becomes awake, alive, and ready to generate the cognitive prowess and emotional regulation you need to function at your peak performance.

Exercise is the best way to reduce the stress that impairs your performance stamina. Exercise increases your “happy” mood chemicals through the release of endorphins. Endorphins help rid your mind and body of tension, alleviating anxiety helping you to calm down.

The brain needs physical activity to stay flexible. Exercise stimulates neurogenesis, or the growth of new brain cells, which improves overall brain function. The development of new brain cells keeps your brain young and in shape, allowing you to be more efficient, pliable, and straightforward in your decision-making, higher thinking, and learning capacities. Neurogenesis is the catalyst to peak performance.

Further, there is nothing that can bring down self-esteem quicker than not liking how you look. Exercise improves self-confidence and your perception of your attractiveness and self-worth. This confidence contributes significantly to your success, prompting people to respect you and take you seriously.

Having healthy, loving relationships increases your happiness, success, and longevity by promoting your capacity to function in life as your best self. Social connectedness and love give you relationships to be motivated for and people to be inspired by.

A strong social network decreases stress, provides you with a sense of belonging, and gives your life the deeper meaning it needs. When you are loved and loving and carving out quality time to cultivate these relationships, you are exalted, elevated, and encouraged to live your dreams fully.
