To Be A Champion - You Must First Become A Learner!


Sit down relax and ask yourself a question that what do successful have that makes them successful? Ever wonder how those champion
achievers in your company,school
manage, month after month, to
get the most new business, the
biggest bonuses, the largest
paychecks?

Well let me tell you a secret. No one starts out as a Champion but like an ordinary person. Most of them started out like you and me. So what is it that makes a Champion different from the rest people?
Champions have an attitude, a mindset that sets them apart from the rest. But most of these qualities are not exceptional.
Indeed each and every one of us possesses these qualities when we start out in life. But somewhere along the way we tend to lose them
and diminish our own potential.

To be a Champion, you must first become a Learner ! Let me throw more light into it:

1. Champions are Willing to Learn.
Just like children come into this world with an innate desire to learn, to understand the world around
them. They're like sponges observing and absorbing every fact, every reaction. Because they know that their very survival depends on
it. One of the most important qualities we need to succeed in business is a willingness to learn - to be teachable.
To become a champion, you must be willing to educate yourself or be educated, to read about, learn and absorb all the things you need to
know, even if they are completely new to you. If you don't, you're doomed to fail from the
start. If your not informed,you will be deformed.

2. Champions are Willing to Act.
Have you notice how children completely geared towards action? As soon as they learn a new
skill, they want to put it into action.
Just the way they practice things they see in movies. Champions are the same. They put their newly
learned skills to use, taking concrete steps to improve their performance, so they can take their business to the next level.
They know that they must act on what they have learned, even if they haven't perfected it.

3. Champions are Not Afraid to Fail.Just as a child picks itself up again and again, every time he/she falls while taking its first steps,
champions are not afraid to fall down or fail. The problem lies when he cant stand up.
They know that failure is the best teacher. They learn from their mistakes and keep fine-tuning
their methods till they succeed.
Champions have the courage to fall down and not be discouraged. They pick themselves up and keep trying.
They never quit.

4. Champions are Willing to Adapt
Darwin got it wrong. Survival does not happen to the Fittest, but to the Most Adaptable. As children, we adapt to long-term change
relatively easily. We are more willing to accept situations and adapt our behavior accordingly.
Unfortunately, as we grow older, we become more rigid in our thinking, unwilling to accept that there may be better ways of doing things.
In a changing business scenario, resistance to change makes us obsolete. We end up losing
out to players with a better understanding of changing trends.
Champions are those who can adapt
themselves and their business to changing trends.

5. Champions are Willing to Innovate
Children are extremely inventive beings. They come into this world with no preconceived notions of doing things. In their minds there are
no limits to what they can do or how they can do it.
Champions apply these very principles to take their business to the top. They not only learn from what has been done before. They find ways of doing it more
efficiently, more cheaply, more successfully. You don't have to be like a child in all respects
to succeed. It's probably not even desirable. But if your pre-conceived notions, fears and hesitation are preventing you from reaching
your goals, try looking at the world through a child's eyes. Be determined to have success. Hope you will change your negative mindset now and do what champions do to obtain the trophy. Think positive.
