There's a stark difference between peak performance and optimal performance.

What's the difference?

Peak performance is a tactical, measured approach to show up on one day and crush it.

Optimal performance is showing up in the day to day challenges of our lives and doing our best.

Welcome to today's guest on the Academy —Rich Diviney. Rich Diviney is a former Navy SEAL Commander who served up 13 overseas deployments over 21 years as an active member and officer of the armed forces’ most elite, secretive group.

Since Rich’s retirement in 2017, he has worked as a speaker, facilitator, and consultant with the Chapman & Co. Leadership Institute and Simon Sinek Inc.

Reflecting on his vast experience, Rich recently wrote a book, The Attributes: 25 Hidden Drivers of Optimal Performance. This book will help you discover how to fit inside a team, how to handle stress, challenges, and uncertainty, and how you can master the attributes for success.

In today's conversation on the Academy, you'll discover:

  • How to train for optimal performance
  • Why peak performance isn't real life
  • How to manage your self-talk in challenge
  • Why recovery holds the keys to your growth
  • The difference between skills and attributes
  • Lessons from 20 years as a Navy SEAL

On The Shortness Of Life by Seneca is one of my all-time essays, what I consider a “wake up” essential —and one I return to when I need a reminder to stop waiting.

Here’s the truth:

We don’t have much time left in this experience —and soon it will all be over.

And yet, like Seneca says:

  • We waste most of our time.
  • We waste most of our energy.
  • We waste most of our experience.

Until one day —it hits us on how it’s almost over and mortality is staring us in the face and then:

  • We realize it’s too late.
  • We realize it’s nearly over.
  • We realize it’s not happening.

There’s countless passages I love inside On The Shortness Of Life by Seneca —but one stands out:

"They lose the day in expectation of the night, and the night in fear of the dawn." —Seneca, On The Shortness Of Life

In other words:

What are you waiting for?

In this Quick Hit, I'll reveal 5 crucial lessons from Seneca's Essay On The Shortness Of Life.

There is no chance of you bringing your dreams to life rolling ‘solo’ or surrounding yourself with energy vampires who tell you to “play it safe” —who are triggered by your growth.

Here’s the deal:

Most people want to see you grow —until a certain point:

Until your growth is a reflection of their drifting.
Until your growth is a reflection of their wandering.
Until your growth is a reflection of their being stuck.

And then, almost as a subconscious tick —they’ll start to tell you:

“It’s risky to go out on your own.”
“Are you sure that makes sense?”
“You should be realistic right now.”

And they enable your excuses to ensure you stay the same so they feel a little better about themselves.

(This isn’t a character flaw per say, this is human nature.)

Instead, surround yourself with real friends who hold you to excellence —and compel you to dig deeper.

In today's Quick Hit, I'll share 3 ways to level up your tribe for your ultimate success.
