3. Champions learn to think on their feet
Being able to think on your feet is the result of training and discipline. You can’t sprint unless you have built up the strength to do so.
Thought without action won’t amount to much in the long run. Those great ideas you have will remain great ideas unless you actively do something with them.
Don’t wait for dire circumstances to test your quick-thinking ability. Test yourself daily and be on alert at all times. As Napoleon said, ”A leader has the right to be beaten, but never the right to be surprised.”
4. Champions strive for wholeness
See yourself as an organization. Pay attention to every facet of your life. What’s strong? What’s missing? What can you do to make the big picture better? Whatever you do, don’t stagnate. Don’t become complacent. Don’t pretend that 50 percent is enough, whether you’re giving or receiving. Things move too fast today to fall into that trap
5. Champions give their higher self a chance
When a champion achieves, it’s not a plateau, it’s the beginning.
Champions move forward at all times; they have anticipation for their next victory and have another goal immediately lined up. It’s enthusiasm that can’t be fabricated.
Champions go for the challenge, so the next victory is what they are thinking about. They have an obligation to themselves to best themselves. That’s living in the highest realm.
Your higher self is in direct opposition to your comfort zone. An indication of life is growth, and signs of growth have to be there.
Being industrious can be a magnet for new ideas, while idleness and inertia can be magnets for negativity.
”An achievement is a bondage. It obliges one to a higher achievement” – Albert Camus.
