CHAMPIONS LOVE WHAT THEY DO

Champions optimize their love for what they do.

It appears that the champions fell into lottery winners when it comes to performing and loving what they do.

The reality is that champions and the world best, learn to follow the vein of gold when it comes to optimizing and loving what they do.

It’s not a chance that champions love what they do; while the average performer seems to be falling into whatever the wind brings to them.

Champions have developed filters that allow them to learn and decipher what they do.

Since they know about themselves, they learn what to appreciate, what to refuse, what to say “No” to, what make them tick etc.…

They focus on those nuggets and develop them further. As they focus on what they love,

that love expands into expertise, because naturally, what we focus on expand.

As they love what they do, they spend more time studying, training, practicing on their crafts.

Which make them experts and appreciated.

Action tip, look at your goals or some of the milestones you have to do- Is there an area you think you can improve on? If yes?

Why? Do you love that area?

If you don’t, is there an opportunity that you could appreciate some areas that will impact your overall performance?

CHAMPIONS STRIVE WITH ENTHUSIASM.

One of the best fuel for high performance is enthusiasm.

Champions, rely on enthusiasm as an octane fuel.

The reason why world class are magnetic and that people want to be around them is their enthusiasm.

Enthusiasm stem from the Greek word “in Theo” – in God.   Alive from the creator.

Enthusiasm energy is contagious because the champions are acting at higher level of energy.

Champions see life as a game where you got to play full out to the best of your ability till the heart stop beating.

With enthusiasm, champions are willing to put a lot in the line and at risk, while the average performers are sometimes just spectators and watch on the sideline.

Enthusiasm brings high level of engagement to the world class, while the average performer is still hesitating and doubting.

Action tip for today: Look at your top 2-3 goals. What is your level of enthusiasm in these goals?

If the enthusiasm level is low, go ahead and figure out if there’s an area where you could raise the enthusiasm.

CHAMPIONS PERFORM BEYOND THEMSELVES

One of the key motivational drive that is so overlooked from champions is that they are driven to perform beyond themselves.

Even tough initially sometimes they might be driven by significance sometimes as a spark, long term they are driven to build a legacy.

That is what make them the greatest. Pull to Perform beyond themselves. And yes it’s pull (NOT PUSH).

PULL is sustainable, PUSH is NOT.

The human spirit is built inherently to contribute and to take care beyond ourselves.

As any healthy parent will sacrifice beyond themselves for their children, the champions and the greatest perform with a pull that is beyond themselves; whether that pull is for an idea, a community, for a loved one, or for a country.

As it ingrained in us, (as mammal) even in the vegetarian space. You can see that cycle of “contribution”.

one tree giving life to multiple seeds, which breeds more tree and then which multiply itself with more seeds.

Similarly, more of life itself is always seeking expression through us.

This is why, when champions focus on legacy, their performance carries more weight and more potency.

So, For Today’s action tip,

Looking at your goals/dreams, ask yourself if you are looking beyond yourself.

CHAMPIONS HAVE DEVELOPED HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR THEMSELVES

High Expectation can be paralyzing or it can a driving force.

It paralyzes the average performers, while it reinvigorates the champions.

What’s the difference?

An expectation set by external forces is a pressure that is a push, which doesn’t have much long term usually paralyzed the average performers.

The Champions are driven within, and set intrinsically standards that lead to high expectations for themselves, which is a pull and has longer term effect.

I love the guidance from Tony Robbins when he says trade your expectations to appreciations.

The question is then, are those two perspective mutually exclusive?

Absolutely they are NOT.

Appreciation is an energetic pull that allows the performer to be grateful and be a “holistic” state.

Being and feeling “whole” is a state that centered the performers to compete at the highest level and while performing; when it’s game time, the performer need to feel whole and not in need.

However, what drives the champions is a pull to move forward and upward and that “next” level is set by a polarization for wanting to be more and becoming more.

So that north star is needed because it’s set by the expectations.

The key is that the champions do this by self-programing or by surrounding themselves with people that have higher expectations than them, which per osmosis help them elevate their expectations as well.

CHAMPIONS EXAMINE THEIR BELIEFS CONSTANTLY, WHY?

Champions are Driven by World Class beliefs.

 

When it comes to leverage their performance so they can produce outstanding results,

the most powerful and overlooked tool is the champions belief system.

But first, the word “belief” is an overused- what is a belief?

Very simple -a belief is a FEELING OF CERTAINTY about a topic, subject or an object or a person.

The way I like to describe a belief use compare it to water and ice.

If feelings and emotion are like water, which flow, like ebb and flow, whether in form of waves or flowing river, Beliefs could be compared to ice water- they are frozen.

Like an operating system in a computer, the run the system.

Similarly, the beliefs of the world class run their performance- their outstanding performance is the results of their beliefs.

Here’s the secret. Average performers don’t examine their beliefs while world class always challenge their own beliefs.

Look at your goals, dreams and objectives- are the beliefs you hold toward these goals congruent?

In other words, for example, if you want to lose weight, but you think that “exercising” is wasting your time,

You will agree with me that there’s incongruence there.

So today’s action tip is to “examine” your beliefs in the area that you want to improve and results.

CHAMPIONS ARE DRIVEN BY EXCELLENCE

Champions are dedicated to a standard of excellence for themselves.

While average performers are influenced by external expectations,
champions first motivation is intrinsic.
They have set for themselves a standard of excellence that create higher expectations for themselves than anybody externally.
This standard creates an internal pull that lead them to being outstanding.
In today’s action tip,
Let’s look at our goals and some of our dreams- let’s be honest with ourselves and examine- what is our standard toward these goals?
Are we lenient or are we set for excellence in our standards?

CHAMPIONS ARE COMMITTING TO WINNING AND ARE WILLING TO PAY PRICE.

CHAMPIONS ARE COMMITTING TO WINNING AND ARE WILLING TO PAY PRICE;

WHILE AVERAGE PERFORMERS COMMITMENT TO WINNING IS BASED ON NEGOTIATING THE EFFORTS IT WILL TAKE.

CHAMPIONS DON’T ASK WHAT IS THE PRICE TO PAY TO WIN, RATHER THEY ASK A DIFFERENT QUESTION-

WHAT IS REQUIRED TO WIN? LIKE VINCE LOMBARDI SAID. WINNING IS NOT EVERYTHING- BUT THE WILL TO WIN IS.f

FOR YOUR  GOALS , ASK YOURSELF.

WHAT IS YOUR LEVEL OF DESIRE OF COMMITMENT?

 

CHAMPIONS MAKE COMMON SENSE COMMON PRACTICE THIS IS WHY & HOW

You’ve heard common sense is not common practice?

That’s NOT True for champions, this is why.

Champions, understand that discipline is their gateway to success.

You’ve probably heard the saying that common sense is NOT common.

That’s because of this important ingredient!!!

In fact, nowadays with technology, and all the information at our fingertips, a lot success is NOT only related to information, But most importantly  to the application of it.

The fallacy that information is power was 100% true before the information era.

Now that internet has unchained information, APPLIED information is power.

And for that, the key secret is discipline.

Ask yourself, are you discipline in the areas of your goals, dreams?

If not, remind yourself of why this goal is important to you-

That constantly will help you get on track, because where your focus goes, energy will flow.

CHAMPIONS BIRTH COURAGE FROM THIS SINGLE UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLE

CHAMPIONS DEVELOP COURAGE OUT UNDERSTANDING ONE SINGLE PRINCIPLE:THE LAW OF CYCLE

The greatest always push the envelope to the next  frontier and level,

while average performers are risk averse and operate out of fear.

The single most important element and principle that drives champions to maximize and optimize opportunities is this:

They understand that everything rises and falls; everything is born and will die.

The deep understanding that we all have the same destination one way or another drives the champions to focus on the “how”.

How can I optimize this situation.There’s 5 minutes left on the clock before the game ends, how can I be my best?

Being at peace with this law makes the greatest look for better way to live.

You could say that embracing death, allow the champions to live stronger and embrace more of what life has to offer

It’s very simple but profound.

Ask yourself for your biggest goal and dream.

Are you acting out of fear and playing small or are you maximizing all you can be ?

CHAMPIONS UNDERSTAND THE CLOSE LOOP COMPETENCE & CONFIDENCE

Champions focus consistently and relentlessly in Improving their competence level every day.

In All areas of Performance-Not only skills but also emotional level.

The greatest understand that the more competent they are, the more confident they become;

The more confident they become, the more action they take;

the more actions they take; the more results they get.

While average performers, dabble with gobbling up more information and going wide,

the world class focus on striving in increasing their competence, day in-day out.

One of the main action tip to look at our goals and dreams.

Ask ourselves: what is our competence level relative to the results we want to get.

If it’s not high, set up a daily plan to improve the skills.
