This might come as a surprise to you, but all expert performers do have one secret in common. Now, you may ask “What is an expert Performer?”. Hopefully these names will answer your question: Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Roger Federer, and Tom Brady to mention a few. Yes, some of the top performers this world has ever seen.

You might say, “This is great but I will never need to be an expert performer. I am just a course superintendent or lawn care operator”. True, but do you want to feel like one? Do you want to be the best performer you personally can be? What I want to share with you is something that literally could change your life. In the last decade I have been fortunate to have worked with top athletes, fortune 10 executives, high potential leaders, small business owners and people of all different walks of life. And I have seen a transformation in their lives and businesses when they got this secret.

During my speaking events I love to ask this question, “What is the difference between a top 10 and top 100 tennis player in this world?”. I love this question, not only because it is such a thought provoking question, but this question is that started my journey on The Game Within. These are some of the consistent answers I get to this question:

  • “The Mental!”
  • “Discipline!”
  • “Routines!”
  • “Perseverance!”
  • “10 000 Hours!”


These are all great answers. These things actually have been studied for years and years. Books are written about these top 10 athletes (expert performers). Everybody wants to know the difference. Well, all of these are true and there is not ONE magic answer that will change your own performance as an athlete or leader over night. BUT, I do believe that there is something these performers know that you don’t (thus far :-). It is their Fat Little Secret.

Expert performers know the power of the “Web Effect”

In the diagram above you will see a spider web formed by five domains – Mental, Emotional, Physical, Spiritual and Technical. All these domains are ranked on a scale of 0-10. To reach your ultimate potential, ALL five domains need to be a 10, but you and I both know that the rating for these domains can change every day, every hour, every minute.

This is where the understanding of the Web-Effect comes in. In the next couple of blog posts we will go through this together in detail. We will look at:

  1. The Five Domains
  2. How the Five Domains work together
  3. How expert performers constantly use The Web-Effect
  4. How you can use the Web-Effect every day

The correct use of The Web-Effect will:

  • Increase your energy
  • Get you laser focused
  • Help you to be fully present
  • Provide better results


Stay tuned, as we reveal this Fat Little Secret of the best performers in the world!
