“Somebodies are not determined by whether they won or lost. Somebodies are people who go for it with all they have.”
Carol Dweck, Ph.D.
Coaching Tip of the Week:
In her excellent book Mindset, which the ASPIRE Success Club has explored indepth this quarter, Carol Dweck discusses (among other things) the mindset of a champion. Worrying about being a nobody does not motivate and sustain champions, she suggests. Instead, champions focus on growth, development, self-motivation, and character.
Do you have the mindset of a champion? Or do your thoughts focus more around your ranking, how you look, or what others will think?
This week, develop your champion mindset.
Take actions that move you in the direction of your goals. Review your values and Purpose Statement every morning and strive to honor them at all times. Do more than what’s expected, leave things a little better than you found them.
At any given time, ask yourself, “What would a champion do?” Then, do that.
