Winner’s Mindset: How to Get Yours

It works exceptionally well too!

Little did I know, what I drew is the exact formula world-class athletes, trend-setting business people, and pretty much anybody at the top of their game follows.

Let’s begin

Imagine an inverted triangle with six horizontally parallel lines crossing it at equal points.

  • The next level is also relatively small, in the scheme of things. It is the ‘gather your energy close’ layer. What you are doing is massively reinforcing yourself and your decision with a massive jolt of internal energy. While you don’t need to spend a lot of time here, you do need to think about how you will marshall your energy resources. For me, the best way is to feel gratitude for everything in my current life. When I was in the hospital, I spent a lot of time marvelling at the other patients in the wing. Compared to them, I had minor issues. Perhaps you could look at how far you have come in your life and thank yourself for the friendships, fights, successes and lessons that got you to this exact place.
  • The third level of the winner’s mindset is the ‘get crystal clear’ step. As you can see, this level is getting much more significant as we travel up the inverted triangle. Here is where you want to be brutally honest with yourself. About what you have and, more importantly, what you don’t have. Here is where you begin to understand what is necessary for the situation you want to end up in. For example, I see far too many people jumping into the entrepreneurial route today with zero knowledge about how a business works. I also see far too many owners with out-of-date ideas on motivating employees. And we can all see for ourselves the Peter principle in action. So, try this. Do not jump headlong into something with no knowledge. Instead, think through how you can acquire that knowledge or pay someone to do it for you.
  • The fourth layer is often omitted. It is the ‘map out your strategy pillars.’ This comes down to knowing what you can do today and what you need to do for tomorrow. Your strategy pillars do not need to be complicated; they must be succinct and written down. For example, one might devote a certain percentage of time to harnessing x. It could be light the way for others to follow. It could be ‘follow the instructions of x for a certain period of time.’ More people are not winners because they do not map out their strategy. They focus only on a few items of the 150 individual actions or tactics that could eventually get them there.
  • The top layer of the inverted triangle is ‘Take Action.’ This is where so many people falter and drop out. This is where winners excel. Through the sheer monotony of doing something, working thru the tactics, over and over and over again. When I was in the hospital, I detested all the repetitive exercises. And I got to a point I wasn’t sure my left hand would EVER get back to normal. Yet after 90 consecutive days of agonizing and tedious exercises, I rotated my left hand precisely as it used to be. That day I screamed with joy!
