10 Stellar Qualities Of True Winners

Published

on

Some say winners are born, others say they are made. However you term it, winners have admirable qualities that separate them from the many. They are rare and unique.

To be a winner you have to understand what winners do to succeed. And it all starts from their habits or admirable traits which help them navigate the hurdles and uncertainties of life.

Here are 10 stellar qualities of winners:

1. They are solid

Winners don’t rely on luck or believe in accidents. They make their own luck. They know that at the end of the day what is required of them is not in bits or parts. Winners are all in and consistent to the core.

 

2. They retain their values

What people will admire in a winner at the end of the day, may not be their looks or talents. It could come down to their character and what they truly represent. What’s their identity and what core values do they uphold.

 

3. They are mentally strong

Winners stay on top of their game by retaining mental acuteness and staying strong despite the odds they are faced with. They would delay gratification and discipline themselves so they can succeed at what they do.

 

4. They connect

True winners know that victory is not about them. It is about everyone on their team and even people who cheered them on when they were fatigued. They connect with their team, their audience, supporters and even those who they have defeated.

“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships.” – Michael Jordan

5. They listen

True winners are not adamant or stubborn. They listen. They know the importance of adapting and swimming with the tides. If it doesn’t object with their core values, true winners will listen and see how they can modify their way to success.

 

6. They know their strengths and flaws

True winners are best at what they do. They do not deal with cards that they do not have. They know what they can take and what they cannot take. Importantly, such knowledge helps them make decisions they can solidly stay with.

 

7. They contribute

They are not selfish. True winners are always looking for ways to improve their environment. They want to contribute and participate rather than just stand on the sidelines. They would do what is necessary to make sure their environment feels their impact or efforts.

 

8. They are optimistic

True winners are not negative. They know that things could go right if they stay on course and develop the right strategies to tackle problems. They are believers in possibilities rather than impossibilities.

 

9. They assume responsibility

They do not shy away from responsibility or the mantle of leadership. They would always step up to the plate and do what is necessary for the greater good of all. They do not make excuses or accept such, rather it is about taking charge and fixing whatever they find is wrong.

 

10.They seek support in other winners

They know that to be a winner you need to establish the right relationships with others who have a winning mentality. They seek support and walk in strides with people who recognize and can strengthen their cause. At the end of the day what will take you from where you are to where you should be will be reliance on the right network of support, especially when the chips are down.

“You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.” – Zig Ziglar

Winners may be rare, but they are present in our society. It all starts from acknowledging what greatness is within you and the desire to step up your game. Winners do not accept mediocrity or tolerate average, they continually strive for excellence in what they do.

Yes you could add that they are passionate and enthusiastic in this regard, but what matters is that they are willing to do what is necessary to always reach their goals.

The Real Reason You’re Not Living the Life of Your Dreams

this is why you're not living your dreams

In August of 2018, I was sitting on the couch and complaining to my wife. The Oregon fires had caused a summer of smoke which meant we weren’t spending much time outside due to our one-year old daughter and my wife’s asthma. My waistline was slowly expanding and I was growing tired of living in the same place for over 25 years (my wife and I had settled down in the town where we grew up; a southern Oregon city of about 40,000 people). To make it worse, we had visited Cairns, Australia in May of 2018, which made our antsy desire to do something else with our lives even more unbearable. We couldn’t stop day-dreaming about travelling the world! (more…)

I have read Dr. Peale’s book “Enthusiasm Make The Difference.” As a matter of fact, I have read a few of his books. All of them are good reads. I love the examples and stories of his patients and clients in a world so far different than ours today. The stories are pre-internet days. Pre-everything days really. Some say it was much simpler then, than now. To a certain extent, I agree with those people. Life has sped up. (more…)

Many people think they know the vision for their life, but they confuse it with objectives like wanting to make a certain amount of money or achieve a certain job title. Other people only have a general idea that is not well defined—like “I want to help people.” A life of freedom and fulfilment requires a clearly defined vision that encompasses your entire life, not just your work. Your vision is the glue that holds together all of your daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly objectives for your life. (more…)
