7 Characteristic Traits of A Champion

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be at the top of your game in business or life?

Have you watched great athletes or leaders achieve outstanding results?

Do you feel you have what it takes to do the same?

So, what makes a champion? Raymond Floyd, 1976 Master Winner stated “It’s what is above your shoulders that make you a champion” and that is the truth. The mental game is what makes or breaks you in business, life or sports.  Champions have certain qualities and abilities that gives them the edge to produce amazing results. Here are ones I help develop and feel are 7 key qualities that produce champions:

  1. Attitude
    Attitudes are shaped early in your life and influenced by your caregivers, teachers and peers. How you perceive things effects your outcome. Developing the right attitude, a healthy good one where you perceive the opportunities and solutions that allows you to deal with whatever comes your way.
  2. Confidence
    Building confidence impacts your capacity as a performer and what you can cope with. It builds trust and hope. When failure or mistakes occur, confidence helps you bounce back with determination and fight the self-doubt that may arise.
  3. Courage
    To have courage is to have heart and act bravely even when fear is present. Courage allows you to face the fear and knock it out of your way. When things go wrong, courage keeps you moving forward. It helps you battle fatigue, competitors or injuries.
  4. Discipline
    When I talk about discipline I reference mental discipline. Mental discipline is the ability to stay focused on task and eliminate distractions both internal and external.  As a champion you know what direction you want to take and how to take it. You have the ability to control your mind. Mental discipline takes great effort and focus which helps you effectively execute.
  5. Concentration
    Concentration is about laser focus and awareness during performance. Void of thought and distraction and ability to execute. Mind is clear and concentration is on the task at hand.
  6. Intelligence
    Having intelligence gives you the edge. It allows you to know what is require. You can determine the techniques and skills that are needed. You can develop a strategy and focus on what is necessary to execute a plan. Intelligence allows you to analyze and adjust what is needed especially when problems arise.
  7. Relentlessness
    This is the will to win. Relentlessness is the ability to do the right thing, to persist and execute even when times are turbulent. You learn to stay the course, battle through adversity and stay focused.
These are just 7 of the traits and there are more.  These are traits that you may have and if not they can be learned. Reflect on which ones you have and those you want to develop.

When so many thoughts are floating around in the mind it creates what I call “mental chatter or chaos”.

Superbowl & 5 Steps to Make a Comeback!

When things seem to be going downhill be it in your career, your life or sports are you able to turn it around? 

Can you stop the spiral downwards and get back on track?

I’m unsure about you, but I’ve had times when my business felt like it was in a slump or during hockey season when I just couldn’t make the plays or score the goals.  It happens and you say to yourself “Can I make a comeback?”

On Sunday, I watched the New England Patriots make a comeback as they beat the Los Angelos Rams 13-3. The year before the Patriots were beaten by  Philadelphia Eagles with 1 quarter left and wondered how Tom Brady felt. Determined, driven to change the outcome this year? Yes! Did he dwell on last years defeat? No, as he is a leader with accurate passing, heart and grit – and that delivered him his 6th Super Bowl ring. What does he credit it to? The team and mental toughness, which included laser focus, a skill I teach. He gained back control, and with the help of his team mates, Tom Brady made a comeback – winning Super Bowl 2019.

Sometimes it comes down to the crunch and you are unsure if you can turn things around. So what do you do if you want to make a  comeback?

Holiday stress can bring many joys and celebrations.  It can also bring headaches and heartache. Some embrace it and welcome the hectic pace; parties and gift giving, while others may hibernate and avoid it.

For those feeling stressed during this busy time I’d like to share some tips and advice so that you can put stress to the test and deal with it.  I use stress almost like an antibody and instead of letting it stop me in my tracks, I look at it as an energizer and develop a plan to conquer it.
