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.
Successful people know what unsuccessful people don’t know.
In the words of Colin Powell, “There are no secrets to success. It is a result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
Success is not about material possessions. Success is about you and how you conduct yourself. How you do your daily business. What is success to you is not success to the next guy.
Success comes to those who attract it. If you
attract success, if you do the right things, if you work hard, success will
visit you, too.
The question here is: “Why are some people

What is it that the successful people know that the rest of us are missing? What did they do that made them super successful?
Are they doing what the rest of us are doing? Or,
Are they doing something differently that the rest
of us are not paying attention to?
Let us look at some of the things that successful
people are doing right that the rest of us are missing.
people are courageous.
Successful people are courageous people. They are scared of the unknown, but they never stop pursuing their dreams. They don’t allow fear to stop them from achieving their dreams. They know that without courage, nothing will happen. They look fear in the eye and keep going. They never stop moving.
“Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit.”- Baltasar Gracian
people embrace mistakes.
Successful people know that without mistakes they are not going anywhere. When you make mistakes, it shows you are learning. It shows you are progressing. It shows you are doing the right thing. Don’t be scared to make mistakes. It is part of your journey to success. Embrace it. Learn from it. Move on.
“To make no mistakes is not in the power of man; but from their errors and mistakes the wise and good learn wisdom for the future.”– Plutarch, Greek Roman biographer
people know what they want.
Successful people know what they want and how to get it. It is easier to succeed if you know what you want. If you know what you want to achieve in life, it is easier for you to go about achieving it. But if you don’t know, you won’t know how to get it. Know what you want, assess the situation, plan, take action, and measure your progress. If you don’t like your results, change what you are doing.
“If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.”– Seneca The Younger
people trust themselves.
Successful people trust themselves, even when they don’t know what they are doing. They believe in themselves. They believe in what they are doing. Success starts with self-belief. If you want to be successful, YOU MUST BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. Self-belief gives you courage, confidence, hope, and determination to pursue your dream. You must believe in yourself if you are to succeed. If you don’t believe in yourself, no one will believe in you. No matter what you are going through, don’t make excuses, just believe in yourself, and you will be a victor.
“Trust in what you do, continue to do it, and it will take you where you need to go.”- Natalie Goldberg, Zen practitioner
To be successful, you must do the right thing. You
must work hard and smart. You must look fear in the eye and say, “I am a
The road to success is not easy. For that reason, we need inspirational quotes that will help us prepare for the journey to success. Hope the following quotes will do just that for you and the people around you.
“Winners are losers who got up and gave it one more try.”- Dennis de Young
When you see successful people, don’t envy them. They were once called names. They changed their lives by getting up and give it one more try. Whatever you are going through right now, it is not the end of the road. It is the beginning of your success. Give it one more try. Give it one push, and I bet you will succeed.
“Being aware of your fear is smart, overcoming it is the mark of a successful person.”- Seth Godin
To be successful in life, in your business, in whatever you do, you MUST first learn how to cope with fear. Fear is real. It is not what you can just push aside. It is the first thing to enter your mind when you are planning new thing. Fear is the first thing to tell you ‘what you are planning is not going to work.’ But don’t let fear stop you from pursuing your dream. It is good to recognize that fear is there, but overcoming it is more powerful.
“The great secret of getting what you want from life is to know what you want and believe you can have it.”- Norman Vincent Pearle
To be successful in life, you need more than just a high IQ. You need more than that. You need a positive attitude. You have to know what you and how to get it. You have to believe in yourself that everything is possible. Everything starts with self-belief. If you believe in yourself, people will believe in you. But if you doubt yourself, people will doubt you. You can’t fake it. Believe you can, and you will.
“It’s what it is. But, It will be what you make it.”- Pat Summitt, coach
No one is in control of your life, but you. No one is your master; you are your own master. You are living a great life if you are the one managing your life. If you allow people to manage your life for you, will never be satisfied with what you get. They will give you what they think that you worth. But the question is: “Is that what you really worth?” If you want to be happier, healthier, and wealthier, don,t let anyone be your master. Be your OWN master.
What is self-confidence? Why do we need it? Self-confidence means self-acceptance. It means you have positive feelings about yourself. It means you respect yourself, value yourself, no matter what. It means you are comfortable in your own skin. It means you feel good about yourself, no matter where you work, what you do, or where you live. In other words, self-confidence is unconditional.
If you are to succeed in life, self-confidence is the best human quality to develop. It starts everything for you. It keeps things going for you. When you are confident in yourself, when you believe in yourself, you can achieve anything that you set out to accomplish in life. Without it, no one can achieve anything. When you believe in yourself, you don’t need people’s approval to do things. It means you are the owner of your life, including your decisions. It attracts success into your life. It attracts confident people into your life. It gives you the power to do things, because you believe in yourself. It gives you the courage to ask for what you want, and with effort, you will get it. It makes things easier for you, because you believe in yourself.
But when you lack self-confidence, you start to question your own existence, your self-worth, and you doubt yourself. It makes simple things difficult because you don’t believe in yourself. Even when people tell you something great about yourself, you don’t believe them. It makes sense because, if you don’t believe in yourself, no one will believe in you. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “No one can make you inferior without your consent.” Yes, without your consent.
To build your self-confidence, you MUST first believe in yourself. You must first believe in your ability to get things done. You must focus on what you are good at, not on what you are not good at. You must start to do the things that scare you to death. But with caution. Don’t stay around negative people. They are negative because they don’t believe in positive things. They are negative because they believe everything in life is negative. If you stay around them, you are hurting yourself, your life, and your future. Don’t criticize yourself when things go wrong. Things will always go wrong. Finally, don’t try to please people. You are not a people-pleaser. You can help people, but don’t please them into liking you. That is not real. It is fake love. You cannot please everyone. If you try, you are going to be exhausted.
Self-confidence, to keep growing it, keep doing the hard things that you have been avoiding. It will continue to grow.
