Authenticity: The greatest triumph of the human spirit is to become the unique individual that you were meant to be.
Performance Cornerstone # 1: Self Awareness
Know yourself - your strengths and weaknesses, your inner emotional matrix, and what you really do and do not want from life.
Performance Cornerstone # 2: Self Mastery
Keep your ego out of the way, master your emotions instead of reacting to them, and pursue only authentic ambitions.
Performance Cornerstone # 3: Self Belief
Cultivate a positive self image and genuine self esteem, believe in yourself and in your dreams.
Performance Cornerstone # 4: Self Truth
Be true to yourself and to your authentic dreams; ask yourself often if what you are about to do or say is consistent with your ideal best self.
Perseverance: The bigger the dream, the greater the challenge. Winners don't quit when things get tough.
Performance Cornerstone # 1: Preparation
Obstacles and adversity are inevitable, but they can be anticipated and prepared for.
Performance Cornerstone # 2: Perspective
Your point of view is more important in managing adversity than the absolute magnitude of difficulty itself; apparent failure is merely a dress rehearsal for future success, so long as you don't quit.
Performance Cornerstone # 3: Toughness
Mental toughness rests on the 3 Ps of Perseverance - Purpose, Passion, and Patience.
Performance Cornerstone # 4: Learning
Every adversity has the potential to build character, teach important life lessons, create opportunities, and create strong relationships.
Vision: The vision of today defines the boundaries of tomorrow's achievements. Successful people dream big dreams; successful organizations set big audacious goals.
Performance Cornerstone # 1: Dissatisfaction
Gaps between present reality and the ideal future are a powerful source of motivation for change; lacking this, complacence tends to set in and prevent action.
Performance Cornerstone # 2: Attention
The choices you make for allocating your attention will define the opportunities you perceive and create the foundation on which your future vision is built.
Performance Cornerstone # 3: Imagination
Rather than wasting your imaginative capacity on worry and fantasy, use it to build a tangible mental picture of your authentic dreams - a virtual memory of the future.
Performance Cornerstone # 4: Belief
You'll see it when you believe it - belief transforms today's impossible dream into tomorrow's reality.
Service: Whatever you most need in life, the best way for you to get it is to help someone else get it who needs it even more than you do.
Performance Cornerstone # 1: Helpfulness
See your job description as a floor, not a ceiling, and go out of your way to be helpful whenever you see the opportunity to do so.
Performance Cornerstone # 2: Charity
To be happy, be generous - not just with your money, but also with your time and your emotions.
Performance Cornerstone # 3: Compassion
Sometimes the greatest service you can provide to someone else is empathy, taking the time to walk in their shoes before you judge.
Performance Cornerstone # 4: Renewal
You cannot pour from an empty pitcher; make time for yourself, ask for the help you need, and be receptive to accepting advice and assistance.
Faith: From the dawn of history, faith has been the single most powerful source of human motivation; act on the four pillars of faith.
Performance Cornerstone # 1: Inner
Believe in yourself and treat yourself with respect; no one is likely to put more faith in you than you put in yourself.
Performance Cornerstone # 2: Outer
Have faith in other people; this is the essence of effective delegation.
Performance Cornerstone # 3: Forward
Have faith in the future and in the destiny of your dreams; believe it and you'll see it.
Performance Cornerstone # 4: Upward
Clarify and solidify your spiritual beliefs; faith in a higher power has proven to be a source of healing, solace, and support for many people.
Leadership: Management is what you do; leadership is who you are. When leadership becomes an attitude and a way of life, it is a value in its own right.
Performance Cornerstone # 1: Clarity
The first duty of a leader is to provide clarity about the current reality, the desired future, and the steps required to move from the actuality of today to the ideal of tomorrow.
Performance Cornerstone # 2: Expectation
Have high expectations of yourself and of others; people tend to perform at the level at which their leaders (or parents) expect them to perform.
Performance Cornerstone # 3: Commitment
All great accomplishments take time; when you commit yourself to a goal, be in it for the long haul.
Performance Cornerstone # 4: Legacy
The greatest legacy any leader can create is the success of those individuals he or she has prepared to be leaders. As Lao Tzu wrote 2,500 years ago, the greatest leaders are those who, when their work is done, depart leaving their people believing that they did it themselves.
