That characteristic is immersion. Top performers are immersed in their fields. They live and breathe what they do.They cannot live without those qualities. In fact, they are breathing for it.
I realized this when I observed world chess champion Magnus Carlsen. Once, in an interview, he was quizzed about chess positions from games decades ago. The interviewer asked him to identify the games where the positions come from: who the players were and when the games were played. And guess what? He could identify each one of them!
How is that possible? How could he do such a thing?
The short answer is that he thought about chess all the time. He was immersed in it. He even said that during the interview, as he was speaking, he had chess positions flashing through his minds. Wow!
one more example.
Cricketer Virat Kohli confirmed before couple of days that real match takes place in a day on ground, but my match is started in my room on bad in night, before a day start.
Few great cases, i would like to share here. Sigmund Freud , Albert Einstein, AND Roger federer . These all three have demonstrated very well in respective field because of one specific quality.
You must know your one quality. Your one strength which can make you hero for all the time in life across the world. i am sure and offering you guarantee for the same.
top performers are immersed in their fields. They live and breathe what they do.It is more like fish can’t live without water.
So here is the lesson: if you want to become a top performer in your field, immerse yourself in it. Be so immersed in it that you think about it virtually all the time. That’s the proven way to mastery.
