Are champions born or made?

Champions are not born; they are made. They developed themselves by working very hard to achieve their dreams.

Why champions win?

Champions win because they think like champions. They think like winners, not like losers.

Peter McWilliams said, “Our thoughts create our reality- where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go.”

Champions don’t quit because they are tired. They quit because they have succeeded. In the words of Billie Jean King, “Champions keep playing until they got it right.” Losers quit because they got it wrong. Winners quit because they got it right. If you want to win, don’t quit because you are tired, or because you got it wrong. Quit because you got it right, and that you are ready to take on the next assignment.

Champions always win because they are bold. They are courageous. They are fearless. They are not afraid to make mistakes. In fact, they love making mistakes.

Billie Jean King said, “Be bold. If you are going to make an error, make a doozy, and don’t be afraid to hit the ball.” If you want to win, don’t be afraid to try. Don’t be afraid to take risks. Risk is a part of the game of life. Risk is a part of the game of winning. If you don’t take risk, how are you going to win? No risk, no win.

Champions win because they are self-aware. They know themselves. They know what they can and cannot do. They know their strengths and weaknesses. They know that it takes discipline to be a champion. They know that it doesn’t take overnight to be a champion. To quote Billie Jean King, “I think self-awareness is probably the most important thing towards being a champion.” When you know yourself, you know others.


Why You Should Spend Your Life Making Great Mistakes

“Failure is a man-made circumstances. It’s never real until it has been accepted by man as permanent.”- Napoleon Hill

“Failure brings a climax in which one has the privilege of clearing his mind of fear and making a new start in another direction. Failure proves conclusively that something is wrong with one’s aims or the plan by which the object of the aims is sought.”– Napoleon Hill

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”- George Bernard Shaw

“Admitting to a mistake is just another way of saying you’re smarter now than you used to be.”- J. Lyman MacINNis

When you make mistakes, be proud of it. You have done well. You are now smarter than you used to be. When you make mistake, don’t beat yourself up, be happy. We learn by making mistakes. We grow smarter, wiser, bigger by making mistakes.

If you want to grow, let mistakes be your friend. Mistakes are ways to check ourselves, to check what you think you know, to check your plans, to check your aims.

It is better to live a life spent making mistakes than to live a life without results. You learn from your mistakes. You grow by making mistakes. You don’t grow bigger in life by staying away from making mistakes, from failing, from disappointments.

Know this: “If you are not making great mistakes, you are not trying.” Make mistakes, learn from them, and you will grow bigger and smarter.
