SDH238-Part II (1).png

Hey there!

Thanks for joining me again for another book review series of “High Performing Habits” by Brendon Burchard, a book on my 2018 reading list. Are you ready to discover the remaining three habits?

If you haven’t already unlocked the first three habits, or if you want a refresher, catch up on the first episode.

I’m SO pumped to continue this candid conversation on this important book. Plus, I have thrown in a little something extra towards the end of the show, the three biggest traps that prohibit you from being a high performer and how to NOT FALL INTO THEM.

Let’s embrace the struggle together.

In this episode you will:

  • Understand the #1 thing according to Brendon Burchard, that’s true for elevating your business and life

  • Know the importance of taking inventory of what you’re doing daily

  • Discover the definition of  PQO and why it’s one of the greatest breakthroughs you can have in your life and business

  • Learn why we fail to ask for what we want and what could happen if we actually did

  • Understand why you should find comfort in uncomfortable moments

  • See how embracing the struggle is essential to growth


“It’s not about the hours you spend. It’s about the harmony you feel while you are using those hours and the output you’re creating.” Amanda Boleyn

“Nothing is less productive than to make more efficient what should not be done at all.” Amanda Boleyn

“No matter your personality, you can develop more influence in the world than you probably imagine. And one reason people struggle to gain influence in their personal and professional lives is that they simply don’t ask for what they want.” Amanda Boleyn

“High performers don’t shy away from asking because they assume the best case scenario, and they assume that other people want to help them.” Amanda Boleyn

“It’s universally agreed that leaders who ask questions and get those around them to brainstorm the path ahead are more effective than dictator leaders who just push their demands and requests on others.” Amanda Boleyn

“Part of developing influence is challenging others around you to grow.” Amanda Boleyn

“Influencers challenge others in three realms: character, connection, and contribution.” Amanda Boleyn

“There’s something magical that happens in life when we let all the drama go and ask how we can be role models again for other people.” Amanda Boleyn

“Part of demonstrating courage is honoring our struggle, sharing our truth and ambitions and finding someone to fight for other than yourself.” Amanda Boleyn

“When we’re in those moments of struggle, really honoring and acknowledging that the struggle is our contrast for showing us what we want and what we don’t want in our lives and in our business.” Amanda Boleyn

“You need no permission to be on that tingling of hope that is in your soul. So don’t let criticisms sway you from your convictions and what you’re after in your life and in your business.” Amanda Boleyn

“When we create superiority and think we’re better than people we lose leadership, clarity, that connectedness. We lose everything that we just talked about in the 6 high-performance habits.” Amanda Boleyn

“If we can’t send satisfaction at the moment than it is difficult to feel connected or grateful for the moment. Being satisfied does not mean settling. It simply means accepting and taking pleasure in what is.” Amanda Boleyn
