The Peak Performance program was developed for Learning Strategies by Paul Scheele and peak performance expert Tom McCarthy, who has created strategies for corporations, professional sports teams and champion athletes to dramatically improve performance.
Steve Pavlina, author of one of the most popular – and financially successful – sites and blogs dedicated to personal development, says that he has used Paraliminal programs regularly.
“I primarily think of them as a mental reboot. When I’m feeling drained or tired, a 20-minute Paraliminal session refreshes me more than a 20-minute power nap.”
He adds, “I’m not a daily caffeine consumer. I used to drink several cups of coffee a day, but I kicked the habit a long time ago because I found that caffeine made me too jittery and unfocused.
“When I drink coffee, my activity level soars — I barrel through tasks in rapid succession. But at the end of the day, I have to admit I didn’t accomplish anything of major value. Caffeine causes me to overload on busywork like email, web surfing, socializing, and other unproductive tasks.
“Despite the negative side effects, I still missed the action boost that caffeine gave me. My best substitutes until now were a power nap, a brisk walk, some calisthenics like push-ups, listening to music, or a rapid Tony Robbins-esque physiology change.
“Those are all semi-effective pick-me-ups, but aside from the power nap, the effects are too short-lived, sometimes just a few of minutes.
“Paraliminals have done a beautiful job of filling this void. After every session I enjoy a lingering aftereffect that usually lasts a couple hours.
“The Paraliminals provide a noticeable concentration boost that allows me to steadily flow through my work while still maintaining my priorities — that delightful state of flow.”
