    A lot of pressure on me due to being the “Best performer” of the last year

    I am working in a private firm. Actually due to my hard work and sincere efforts, I was selected as the “Best performer” of the last year . So now there is lot of pressure on me as everyone is expecting me to repeat the same feat again. How to deal with such high expectations?

    Hello Aspirant,

    Congratulations for being the best performer of the last year.Really it is your great achievement.Keep it up.It is quite natural to expect the same performance as of the last year.You can do it very well.If you are interested to achieve the same reward,you should have proper strategy to achieve it.

    While having target to achieve the best performer,you must take care of your health also.In order to take care of health,you should have sound sleep for 6 to 8 hrs,have nutritious food & should maintain hygiene in all aspects.

    Good luck.

    The last time you were the best performer because you didn't have anything in mind and you were just hard working and sincere in your work.

    This time you are feeling pressure because you are thinking that their is a lot of expectations from you.

    You don't have to think like that instead it would be much better if won't even think about regaining the title.

    As this thinking is the main reason that is bringing you under pressure. Just be normal and concentrate on your work given to you.

    Thinking of anything else will be both waste of your time and will also effect your performance. Some times such unnecessary pressure becomes the main reason

    for even under performance which you will never want.

    Keep in mind, thinking of such things can never make you the best performer only hard work can. So just try to maintain the level that you have set for your self

    which you have gained with all your hard work and leave the thinking part to your boss and higher authorities.

    Hello,

    Being on the top is a real challenge.Your consistent performance have raised their expections,but the trick lies in keeping yourself away from the burden of these high expectations.Your aim should be to beat yourself only.Simply focus on your assignments and do it sincerely as you have been doing.If you are honest and sincere towards your work then you are bound to achieve success! Keep yourself calm and relaxed as much as possible.Dont think about the results as it will create more pressure on you.The only mantra is work hard and enjoy success.

    Hi friend,
    Congrats on the accomplishment.

    And this should act as a motivator for you. A boost for you. With time, you have to show them that you have grown and you live upto the expectations of your company. Hard work and sincerity can't go waste. So take it in the right stride and march ahead to be a notch above what you got last year. Don't be stressed out because of the responsibility on you. That is also not good. Just be regular and focussed. Use your brain efficiently and let your work do the needful. No need to pay any heed to what is expected out of you etc. Firstly, you're working for yourself and it is not that you don't feel good at that good moment of being recognized. So, work for yourself and obviously, you are working for the company.
    So just chill and be dedicated. You can and will make it at the top again.

    All the very best

    the best way to deal with such expectations is forget about what others expect of you and start to think what you expect from yourself . it is this thinking process which led u being the best performer in the first place. all you need to do is clear your head and work with same vigour and enthusiasm , if you do so there is none stopping you from becoming the best performer again, and if by any means you fail you wont feel the regret because you would know you gave in your best and applaud the one who turns out to be the best performer. !!goodluck

    dear friend

    first of all congratulations for being best employee of last year.
    one thing is that no body cares of your best employee tag
    they only mean that you are doing the work and doing very well
    so they are giving you the tag of best employee.
    you just do your work, dont work for the best employee tag
    you dont take tension just focus on your work.

    Dear friend, first of all congratulation for being best performer.
    well, now everybody's expectations will be high from you. but you don't need to get under pressure because of that.
    just think about one thing that if you can do that then, you can do it now also.
    just keep your faith in you and do your job. you'll definitely stand on others expectations.
    i hope that might help.

    Hi,

    There are different types of reward given to the employees...monetary and non-monetary...

    First of all you have to judge yourself that whether the reward of "BEST PERFORMER" that was declared to you is justified...i.e. whether you are happy with the same?

    Then question yourself that "if you are happy..why don't be for the current year also?"...
    and if you are not happy...then the thinking needs to focused o other areas.. it really depends on how you wants to take the matter...
    In private organisations, those who works hard and dependable are getting too works and always overburden....as the leaders are depends on many areas....

    But you needs to learn the art of saying "NO" sometimes.... saying no is not bad sometimes....

    Dear you will definitely get more responsibilities of the company because you are the Best Performer of the year that means you are the only best employee in the entire office premises and better in work than all other employees and you got what you deserves that is why you have got more duties in the company and you will have to complete your all responsibilities on time otherwise you may loose your good image in the office and another one will take the best performer of the year award that would not be good for you and when you have got more work from the company then this is the right time to prove yourself because if you will perform good in this year too then you will be the best employee in the office in front of the manager and that will be good for your future because if you complete your all duties then you will get hikes in the salary and incentives every month because of your performance and not only this, whenever you will ask for leaves then you will get the leaves instantly and your manager may not forbid your leaves at any cost so that think about the advantage of working good and hard in the company and get the profit

    If you are getting pressure then first of all you should make a very good time table for your entire work and fix that how many hours will work everyday and must give at least 10 hours everyday only for work then take rest for a long time everyday to be active and energetic in the office during working hours and whenever you need help in your work then you must take help from your manager, and he will definitely guide you in completing your work on time and do not afraid of work and take everything easy and if you will come under pressure then you may not complete work on time so complete your work peacefully and without any tension in mind

    All the best
