Seven Mindsets of a Champion

It's a fantastic Monday! A great day to focus in on what matter in life and taking the action steps necessary to possess the mindset of a Champion! What are some attributes of a Champion?

The Mindset of a Champion:

1. Champions have goals.

A Champion sets clear and definable goals, puts them to paper with dates and breaks them down into smaller goals always leading to the ultimate goal.

2. Champions know where they are going.

A Champion has a purpose. You were placed on this earth with a purpose that reside in the depths of your heart. Only you can determine your purpose, I'd like to think with God's help, you will find it and the doors will open for you to fulfill that purpose. When you are moving in and toward your purpose you feel a sense of satisfaction and contentment. You are gifted to work within that purpose. Though you can grow and cultivate other abilities, you are born to glide within certain areas of concentration.

3. Champions know their value.

A Champion is secure in who they are and they know that they have value. There is no one else like you and there isn't another human being who can do exactly what you can do. Find your purpose and thrive in it, because the rest of us need your skills! Life is too short to marinate in a bath of insecurity.

4. Champions understand the power of team.

A Champion knows to surround themselves with people who add value to their life and will encourage them toward their goals. Avoid those with a voice of negativity! Dream stealers do just that!

5. Champions take responsibility for their actions.

A Champion will not require or ask anything of others they wouldn't be willing to do themselves. They are quick to give away recognition and understand that if they are the leader, "the buck stops here". When they make a mistake they own it, correct it and move forward.

6. Champions understand the power of relationship.

Champions understand the importance of not only communicating with their team, but how to take interest and invest in the individuals on their team. They value others and let them know their worth. Relationship is a key component to the strength of any team. Trust and respect will take any team far.

7. Champions are willing to leave their comfort zone and operate in the faith zone.

Sometimes you have to give up a little now to go up and forward. Champions are risk takers, they are willing to get uncomfortable now to achieve the desired result. In order for things to change, you have to change, otherwise nothing ever changes! Imagine yourself five years down the road. If everything remains the same, what do you see and do you like it?

YOU are a Champion! I believe in you without a doubt! Whatever you desire to achieve, hope for or imagine could be, I would like to help you through encouragement. The rest is up to you…it’s time to quit with the Chumpions and get with the Champions! Stay away from the whiners and go with the winners! You’ve got what it takes, now get to work!
