From a new breed of motivators, America's Attitude Coach Ray Pelletier gives you a practical guide for translating your personal mission into concrete action. Make today your January 1st. Say goodbye to negative thoughts and change your life by giving yourself Permission to Win.
Talking with Champions
Poor perceptions of ourselves are formed in early childhood and may stay with us for rest of our lives, unless we make an effort to change and have a winning attitude.
Decide to Win
The first step to winning is: You need to Decide to win. Your January 1st marks day you decide to restructure your way of thinking and escape from every cell to which others have confined or limited you.
What is winning?
Winning is acknowledging one of life's greatest truths -"It doesn't matter what happens to you, just what you Do with what happens to you!"- a winner is someone who knows how to overcome adversity.
Goals and Missions
Your mission refers to your reason for being on earth, your purpose in life. All of us need a vision and mission that reflects our unique talents and desires. It is something eating away at us and is inner voice that tells us what we should be doing with our time.
Some of unhappiest people are those that never set goals for themselves and continue working at a job that they hate, or staying in a dead-end relationship. These people cheat themselves of higher personal fulfillment and inner peace.
Attitude - Magic of Mental Coaching
You need to find yourself a coach. Where can you find best coach? Look in mirror. If you are going to be a long-term winner, you have to access your subconscious mind and reprogram it with positive thoughts and experiences that will keep you on top! If you've been programmed to think you are a loser and will never amount to much, chances are that's what you will become. You can re-program yourself to think you are a Winner.
Learning makes it happen
You are responsible to yourself to get best education to prepare you for your dream. Keep in mind that many cases of "overnight success" actually took years to achieve. Remember: Winners never stop learning.
Communicating - hub of wheel
Winners follow these principles of effective communication: 1. Think before you speak. 2. Maintain control of your emotions and be positive, open-minded, and respectful of other's views. 3. When communicating with others: Be polite. Don't interrupt. Be attentive. 4. When you've got something to say, begin by listening. 5. K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple, Simon! This means great communicators use plain, simple, concise and direct language. Nobody likes a pretentious person who only uses big words and likes to sound superior. 6. Raising your voice unnecessarily can be interpreted as a sign of anger or frustration and is to be avoided in every instance. Keep focused on your goal.
Family and personal relationships
Winners are able to weather a storm and come out okay. If your spouse has left you, it may be time to put on a winner's hat and move on. Create your new life and don't get bogged down in depression and non-activity. Remember, we can't adjust wind, but we can adjust sails.
