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
“Why are others not so successful?” What are the

can we find it?
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
Life is all about moving forward. It is about growing, learning, changing, and moving forward. The question is: “Are you in the game of playing forward or playing backward?
If you are playing forward, keep playing. Life is all about growth. If you are not growing, you are dying.
If you want to be successful, don’t live in the past. Don’t live in the future. Both are dangerous, but living in the future is better than living in the past. Because living in the future can change your life, if you play the game well. Living in the past, on the other hand, has the power to keep you where you are.
“Winners learn from the past and enjoy working in the present toward the future.”- Denis Waitley
Successful people don’t live in the past. They learn from the past. If you want to do great things in your life, don’t live in the past. Learn from the past, and be happy to work in the moment toward your future.
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.
