Qualities of Champions

In today’s world, the same way we have certain ingredients that bring out the taste of food. The same true apply to us; there are certain attributes or characteristics that make champions to stand out and to achieve their dreams. Here are few:
Champions are visionary leaders. They identify their visions at early stage; this means they define their destination before they ever start the journey. The “why question” are much more important to them than “how to get there.” But, what are other attributes that set them apart? Bill Hybels said, “Visionary people face the same problems everyone else faces; but rather than get paralyzed by their problems, visionaries immediately commit themselves to finding a solution.”

Another attributes is that they are courageous people. According to them, as Norman Vincent wrote, “Courage does not mean the absence of fear, courage means being afraid, but doing it anyway.” This means, although you may have failed before yet you are taking bold step to try again. Nelson Mandela put it this way, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
To them, no matter what they went through – the challenges and uncertainties they stay focus until they succeed. Denis Waitley said, people of focus “Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.”

Why do many people give up on their dreams, and champions succeed? Napoleon Hill suggests, “The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.” Champions never stick to one plan rather they always think of new ways of doing things, handling issues and adapting to changes in order to achieve their desire goals.
Possibility Thinkers
According to them, “If you think you can, you are right, but if you also think you can’t you are right,” make your choice. That’s why, champions are possibility thinkers. They see every challenge as an opportunity, and every stumbling block as a stepping stone. Most of all, they don’t react to issues rather they respond to it effectively.
