Winners have a particular way to go about things, and that is what differentiates them from the rest. If you want to be a winner at whatever it is that you do, you need to start doing what winners do. Now there are a multitude of factors that can be looked at, but let’s start with 3 simple ways to create a solid foundation for developing the proper mindset of being a true winner.

Ongoing Motivation
Think about how many books and audiotapes and seminars, as well as all the articles online such as this one, that exist in the world. You’d think we’d have an overload of successful and happy people everywhere with all this information available. Here’s the thing though. Most people will read a book or listen to an audiotape once, and get a little bit of a lift out of it, but then it’s gone, and they figured that the content just didn’t work for them. Let me ask you this, how often do you bathe? Well, that’s how often you need to expose yourself to motivation and self improvement material. Motivation is not permanent, and neither is bathing! Start thinking along those lines, expose yourself to motivation continuously, and always look for ways to boost your determination and drive. Understand that the boost that you get is not permanent and that you need to keep absorbing motivation on an ongoing basis.

Positive thinking
Yes, we have all been told this over and over, how positive thinking is important. However, you need to look at positive thinking from another perspective. Truth is, positive thinking on its own will not move mountains. You can be the most positive person on earth but if you don’t take action or, don’t learn from your errors, and such, then it will all be in vain. But positive thinking is important because it is BETTER THAN negative thinking. With negative thinking, you don’t even stand a chance to succeed. You are not even in the ballpark range to make it happen. At least with positive thinking, the hope is there. A few tweaks, a few actions, a few lessons learned, and you are on your way to becoming a winner. Don’t let yourself remain a victim of negative thinking. Embrace positive thinking, not because that in itself is life changing, but because it can provide you with the opportunity to figure out how to change your life and because it is plain and simply better than negative thinking.

Take care of your health
Let me ask you this question: If you had a million dollar race horse, would you feed it junk food and let it slip into poor health, or would you do everything in your power to feed it properly and keep it in the best shape possible? Well guess what, you are that million dollar race horse! Never forget that. Start treating your body and your health with the proper care that it truly deserves. Remember to always work harder on yourself than on anything else in your life. Your body and health is the “battlefield”, where everything in your existence happens. Promise yourself to always maintain it in pristine condition and treat it better than you do anything else. Once you start doing that, then you will start being on track to developing the mindset of a real winner.
