The Simple Steps People Forget When Trying to Change Habits

None of us are invincible. We all have something we won’t to change in our life. We have to deal with the uncertainty in our life. I have coached business leaders who have lost their certainty to the point of developing a slump that lasts longer than it needs to. When your life doesn’t match your expectations  you will be unhappy. We all go through stages of life where we need to reevaluate our self.

Regardless of the setting or circumstance, and whether the challenge is in sports, life or business, the core characteristics of all great champions are the same. They way they think, the way they prepare, how they work and how they live has produced a set of characteristics we can all work to attain, as follows:

How They Think

1. It’s Always Personal. Great champions hate to lose even more than they love to win. (This was one of the standout characteristics people noted in Josh James, the Utah executive who grew his company Omniture to success against all odds to achieve a $1.8 billion acquisition by Adobe. Now he’s back in the game with DOMO, a company Forbes acknowledged as one of America’s Most Promising in 2012.)

2. We are the company we keep. Great champions understand the power of association. While they are generally willing to help others at all levels, they are highly conscious that their own greatness is in many respects a summation of the top five individuals they associate with.

3. They Believe in a Higher Power. Champions emerge from a wide variety of faiths, but nearly universally they carry an internal believe in a higher spiritual power.
