5 Things To Do To Become A Champion
In order to become your best at anything, you have to train yourself to perform in environments that you are not used to. More often than not we stay within the perimeter of what feels comfortable
The only thing that differentiates a champion from a non-champion is the mindset.
It’s the winning mentality that is the differentiator.
Here are a few things you can do to chart your ascent.
- Get out of your comfort zone
In order to become your best at anything, you have to train yourself to perform in environments that you are not used to. More often than not we stay within the perimeter of what feels comfortable.
The environment does not have to be physically dangerous to be rugged.
Any environment where your heart starts to thump because you know that something is (or will be) on the line is good for you. Each time you feel this, you are pushing your boundaries.
It can even be something as small as striking up a conversation with a stranger at a party, or taking on a slightly more challenging a target.
Whatever you want to succeed at, you have to push yourself past your comfort zone in order to achieve greatness.
- Define your personal philosophy
Create a clear outline of what you want to achieve. In the absence of a roadmap, you will be wasting your time. Identify who you want to become to accomplish your ultimate goal.
It is important to calibrate who you are and who you want to become. Physically writing what your personal guiding philosophy, helps you line up your thoughts, your words and your actions across any environment.
There is a sense of power that comes from a personal philosophy.
Reverse engineering helps us keep our end goal in mind as if it is already in our kitty.
- Work on your recovery everyday
If you’re going to be a top performer in your field, you have to make time for and focus on recovery.
There is no way to grow physically or mentally if you’re constantly exhausted. In order to perform at your highest possible levels, you have to pay attention to recovery each and every day.
Focus on the four pillars of recovery: sleep, diet and hydration, movement and exercise, and mental practices such as meditation after a long day.
- Coach your brain to be optimistic
It is important to focus on the positive in every experience. The neuroplasticity of our brain is the most beautiful tool that we possess. Both optimism and pessimism are learned behaviors. We can rewire our brain to work in our favour.
Firstly become aware of your inner dialogue. Everyone has negative thoughts at times. The worst thing you can do is ignore them. Instead, acknowledge them, examine the causes behind them, learn from them, and move on.
Focus on the good things in life, train your brain on a regular basis by keeping a daily journal where you note three to five good things that happen everyday. This not only causes your subconscious to focus on the good, but also sends you to bed in a better headspace.
- Don't be attached to the outcome
In order to be a champion, you have to be driven such that you push yourself like you never have before. But, many a time there will be times that no matter what you do, you will fail. So it’s important to strike the proper balance between being driven to succeed and the outcome.
Every failure is a learning experience and can push us forward in ways nothing else can. Keeping a growth mindset not only allows you to learn from your mistakes; it ensures you never repeat them again, making you much more experienced and aware in the process.
A high-performance mentality and lifestyle are critical components to finding success in business and life. These tactics will help you get there.
