Winners Think Differently

lora legacy duathlon runThere is a great article entitled 5 Key Attributes of Winning Athletes that I read recently that I really liked!

The 5 Key Attributes Include:

1.  Winners set goals. (watch for my video clip on this next week)

2. Winners make good decisions.

3.  Winners plan to win.

4.  Winners visualize success.

5. Winners are constantly learning and asking questions.

I hope you will check it out.  Here’s some of my favorite quotes:

“Winners think differently.  They do.”

“Winners are constantly focused on moving forward, getting things done, taking action and improving…winners are striving to be the best they can be.  They aren’t afraid of hard work”

“I believe winners are made and not born.”

“Winners are confident, but never so confident to think they know it all.  They are always seeking the advice of experts, looking for an advantage, seeking the latest knowledge in the field and doing everything they can to improve.”

“You’ll have setbacks, challenges, and failures along the way.  That is part of the process and completely natural.  Winners have to deal with all of that as well.  If winning was easy, then it wouldn’t be as satisfying!”
