How to Think Like a Winner
#1 Create a pattern of success
One of the best ways to think like a winner is to create a pattern of success. This is accomplished by setting goals and consistently achieving them. There are many ways to set goals. To achieve them and create a pattern of success there is a proven method. Create a realistic but motivating goal. Create a series of smaller goals to help you achieve your big goal. Plan how you’re going to achieve each smaller goal.
For example, if you were a business coach, your larger goal might be to have $100,000 in sales this year, Then one of your smaller goals may be to launch either a service or information product each quarter. Plan how you’re going to launch your product or service successfully. Create measurements to determine your success. As you achieve each smaller goal, you’re creating a pattern of success. As you become accustomed to succeeding you’ll naturally begin to feel, act and think like a winner – because you'll be one.
#2 Positive affirmations
We all struggle with limiting beliefs and doubts. However, to think like a winner you need to think positively. Turn your fears, limiting beliefs and doubts into positive affirmations. For example, “I'm no good with money” can become “I'm in control of my financial future. I'm capable of success.” Repeat the affirmation each time doubt creeps into your thoughts. Make a habit of repeating the positive affirmation regularly. Make it part of your inner dialogue. Soon you’ll begin to believe and act like it’s true.
#3 Surround yourself with supporters
Make sure your friends, family and associates are of like mind. It’s unhelpful to give your attention to naysayers. Believe you can accomplish anything and surround yourself with people who feel the same. Positive and enthusiastic people are powerful. Their passion is contagious. When you surround yourself with these people you really can accomplish anything.
Finally, accept that some days are going to be more difficult than others. Instead of fighting these days (or longer time periods), experience them with an open mind. Embrace them as learning periods and persevere. Winners aren’t people who never fail or struggle. Winners are people who persevere.
Set goals, maintain a positive mindset and create a strong support network. You're a winner. Always remember that.
