Contrary to what actor Charlie Sheen may want us to believe, none of us are going to win all of the time, it’s just not possible. With that being said, there are certainly individuals and organizations who seem to win on a pretty consistent basis. Why is it that some people routinely enjoy success in their business endeavors, experience gratifying relationships with intimate partners and friends yet countless others seem to struggle just to stay ahead of the curve? I believe the answer can be found by taking a closer look at the mindset of a consistent WINNER.
THE MINDSET OF A CONSISTENT WINNER….
Will. Winners are determined, purposeful and love to face and breakthrough challenges. They embody the saying “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”. Winners possess an overwhelming desire to achieve their stated objectives, a desire that serves to extinguish self doubt and fear.
Introspective. Winners know that the truth comes from within. They trust their instincts and are guided by a strong inner compass. They are masterful at knowing when it’s time for a “check up from the neck up”.
Navigators. Winners are adept at navigating around obstacles. Rather than dwell on a problem, a winner will acknowledge it, examine the cause and then commit their energy to finding a solution.
Negotiators. Winners find common ground and build alliances. They seek to establish Win-Win scenarios. They don’t base their world view around a winner-loser model.
Energy. Winners make their health a priority. They recognize the role vitality plays in our overall happiness and well being. They strive to get better, faster and stronger in every area of their life.
Resilient. Winners bounce back from setbacks and failure. As stated earlier, we are not going to win all of the time, however, a winner will learn from a setback and come back into the game armed with additional experience and wisdom.
