High Performance Habits Summary

About High Performance Habits Book


Twenty years ago, author Brendon Burchard became obsessed with answering three questions:

1. Why do some individuals and teams succeed more quickly than others and sustain that success over the long term?
2. Of those who pull it off, why are some miserable and others consistently happy on their journey?
3. What motivates people to reach for higher levels of success in the first place, and what practices help them improve the most

After extensive original research and a decade as the world’s leading high performance coach, Burchard found the answers. It turns out that just six deliberate habits give you the edge. Anyone can practice these habits and, when they do, extraordinary things happen in their lives, relationships, and careers.

Which habits can help you achieve long-term success and vibrant well-being no matter your age, career, strengths, or personality? To become a high performer, you must seek clarity, generate energy, raise necessity, increase productivity, develop influence, and demonstrate courage. The art and science of how to do all this is what this book is about.

Whether you want to get more done, lead others better, develop skill faster, or dramatically increase your sense of joy and confidence, the habits in this book will help you achieve it faster. Each of the six habits is illustrated by powerful vignettes, cutting-edge science, thought-provoking exercises, and real-world daily practices you can implement right now.

If you’ve ever wanted a science-backed, heart-centered plan to living a better quality of life, it’s in your hands. Best of all, you can measure your progress. A link to a free professional assessment is included in the book.

High-Performance Habits: How Extraordinary People Become That Way

High-Performance Habits: How Extraordinary People Become That Way

Have you ever wondered why some people succeed more quickly than others? I do. In fact, these extraordinary people aren't born this way. Instead, according to Brendon, they relied on these 6 different habits:

1) Seek Clarity

2) Generate Energy

3) Raise Necessity

4) Increase Productivity

5) Develop Influence

6) Demonstrate Courage


High Performance Requires These 2 Things

High Performance Requires These 2 Things

High performance requires good habits and confidence. High performance has nothing to do with personality or natural abilities. Brendon Burchard looked at people from 190 different countries to see how they attain their goals.

High performance has little to do with gender, race, age, or personality attributes. However, crucial habits such as "keeping yourself fit" play a significant role. What matters is what you do, not who you are. These aren't simple "life hacks" in the traditional sense. It takes a lot of effort to build these habits, and all of the people studied have worked hard to do so.


Importance of Confidence

Importance of Confidence

Another aspect of high performance is the development of strong confidence, which comes from consistent practice. As you master more and more difficult skills, your confidence rises continuously.

"Confidence is your belief in your ability to figure things out." Brendon Burchard



"Courage is more like a skill since anyone can learn it. And once you understand and demonstrate it more consistently, Everything changes."





  • High performers are the individuals who seem to exceed all expectations in every field. To better understand these high performers, the author conducted research to identify the factors underpinning long-term success.
  • Firstly, he found demographics seem to have little impact. Sexual identity, skin colour, and age have little effect on performance. Instead, irrespective of demographic, essential habits underpin success. Action matters more than identity. Crucially, these high performers choose their habits wisely.  




  • Another highly important factor underpinning higher performers success is self-esteem. Self-esteem helps high performers overcome challenges. Again, this confidence is not innate. Instead, they build confidence and self-esteem through persistent practice. Persistent practice will encourage wisdom and talent. Self-esteem is a building block required for learning and growth.

What matters is what you do, not who you are

What matters is what you do, not who you are

This passage in the book isn't emphasized, yet it still hits me. In my society, expressing an opinion is strange unless you have a certain position. Yet, we were also invited to the forum, but that does not imply we'll dare to speak up. This line thus inspires me to have the confidence to achieve that.


1.Seek Clarity.

high performers always have clarity about

what they are going to do.

2.Figure out your goals.

high performer people always keep their

goals in mind and this is the key reason that they are not distracted.

3.high performers can also imagine


they have a clear idea that what life they will live after 10 years and what they will

do. so make your future goal and give a clear goal to yourself

4.Skill development

high performance always try to learn new thing but they have a secret that is they find such skills which are demanded in future and are highly paid.
