Have you ever wondered what it means for successful Champion people to be successful?
Have you ever wondered how those professional bosses in your company manage, every month, to get the newest people, the biggest bonuses, the biggest payouts?
Well, let me tell you a secret. No one starts out as a Champion. Many of them start out like you and me.
Champions have an attitude, an attitude that makes them different from others. But many of these qualities are no different.
Indeed, each of us has these qualities when we begin life. But somewhere along the way we often lose them and reduce our energy.
To become a Champion, you must first become a Child! Let me explain:
Champions Are Diligent With Learning.
Children come to this world with an innate desire to learn, to understand the world around them.
They are like sponges that look and absorb all the facts, all the reactions. Because they know that their survival depends on it.
One of the most important, repetitive qualities, qualities we need in order to be successful in business is a willingness to learn – to be educated.
To be a champion, you have to be willing to teach yourself or be taught, to read, learn and absorb everything you need to know, even if it is new to you.
If you do not, you will fail from the beginning.
Experts Are Willing to Take Action
Have you ever noticed how kids are totally targeted for action? As soon as they learn a new skill, they want to use it.
The champions are the same. They use their newfound skills to apply them, take concrete steps to improve their performance so that they can take their business to the next level.
They know that they must apply what they learn, even if they have not yet completed it. This brings me to their next quality.
Champions Are Not Afraid Of Failure
Just as a child picks it up repeatedly, every time he falls while taking the first steps, the champions are not afraid to fall or fail.
They know that failure is the best teacher. They learn from their mistakes and continue to correct their ways until they succeed.
The champions are brave enough to fall down and not give up. Pick them up and keep trying.
Champions Are Ready to Practice
Darwin did not get it right.
Survival does not happen for the Fittest, but for the Greater Flexible.
As children, we easily adapt to long-term change. We are more than willing to accept the situation and adjust our behavior accordingly.
Unfortunately, as we grow older, we become more assertive in our thinking, not wanting to accept that there might be better ways to do things.
In a changing business environment, resistance to change makes us obsolete. We end up losing players who better understand changing styles.
Experts are those who are able to adapt themselves and their businesses to changing trends.
Champions are determined to innovate
Children are highly esteemed creatures. They came to this world without any preconceived notions of doing things. In their minds, there are no limits to what they can or cannot do.
Experts use the same principles to get their business up and running.
They do not simply learn from the past. They found ways to do it effectively, cheaply, very effectively.
You do not have to be a child to be successful. Probably not desirable.
But if your preconceived ideas, fears, and doubts prevent you from reaching your goals, try to see the world through your eyes.
The better you will improve your chances of success, the worse you will remain small in heart.
