Champions think differently than everyone else. They approach their life and work with a different mindset and belief system that separates them from the pack.
1. Champions Expect to Win. When they walk on to the court they expect to win. In fact they are surprised when they don’t win. They expect success and their positive beliefs often lead to positive actions and outcomes.
2. Champions Celebrate the Small Wins. By celebrating the small wins champions gain the confidence to go after the big wins. This doesn’t mean champions become complacent. Rather, with the right kind of celebration and reinforcement, champions work harder, practice more, and believe they can do greater things.
3. Champions Don’t Make Excuses When They Don’t Win. They don’t focus on the faults of others. They focus on what they can do better. The see their mistakes and defeats as opportunities for growth and as a result become stronger, wiser, and better.
4. Champions Focus On What They Get To Do, Not What They Have To Do. They see their life and work as a gift not an obligation. They may not love every minute of the journey but their will and attitude helps them develop their skill.
5. Champions Believe They Will Experience More Wins In The Future. Their faith is greater than their fear. Their certainty is greater than all the doubt. Their passion and purposes are greater than their challenges. In spite of their situation, champions believe their best days are ahead not behind them.
