Traits of a Champion

Let’s face it.  Many of us are under stress and striving for balance and harmony in our lives.  The ability to focus and endure the tough times allows you to stand-out. 


You can achieve improved focus by concentrating on elements you can control and not spending time on those you can’t control. 

Attention to Detail
It goes hand-in-hand with focus but if you do the small things and pay attention to the details of your work, than you are more likely to be successful.  Do you strive for detail?  Do you follow-up to complete a project until the very end?  Are you good at communicating messages to staff or your team?  What areas can you improve upon to enhance this area of your life?

Hard Work
Legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar says “if you want to be successful, you need to be hard-working and industrious.” 


I believe the road to success is paved not only with great intentions, but hard-work, enthusiasm, and a detailed plan, as well.

Play with passion and positive energy and it will rub-off on all that you touch.  Passion breeds enthusiasm and enthusiasm develops a positive energy.  A positive energy attracts success.  Play the game to win and not to “not lose.” 


In times of fear, struggle, and challenge, it is critical to focus your attention inwards and find the inner spirit that guides you.  If you are in the right place, you will find your passion that drives you to deliver consistently.

Mental Toughness 
Are you going to face adversity?  You bet!  And the higher you go up the pecking order, the more shots will be taken at you.  The key is focus once again on the things you can control and ignore the negativity.  


It is important that in your heart of hearts, you know that you are doing your absolute best and being honest with yourself.  Fight the good fight and keep focused on only the things you can control.  When you find yourself in a rut, focus on what needs to be done to climb out of the rut.  Sometimes it means just stop over-analyzing everything and just start “playing” again. 

You must believe you can do something.  Sometimes we don’t know how we are going to get to where we want to go or what it’s going to take to get there.  I love saying “For what your mind can believe, you can achieve.”  Write down your intentions and start to believe that you can achieve anything you so desire.  Surround yourself with a great team and work towards your burning desires.

Positive Mindset 
Developing a positive mindset is one of the most powerful life strategies there is. Using powerful positive thinking techniques, visualizations and positive affirmations, it is possible to achieve whatever you want. Professionals and business people can use these techniques to develop personal power or gain a competitive edge. At a personal level it will transform your life, your health and renew the joy and passion for life. Imagine waking up each morning, bursting with excitement, energy and joy for the new day! It really is that powerful...

Physical Conditioning
All of these traits are important, but it is the physical conditioning that drives the confidence, belief, conviction, and mind-set of a champion. 


Train like a champion as you strive for greatness
As you strive for your “dream” in your life, train at least 4 times per week, improve your nutrition, and condition your mind and your body for success.  Physical conditioning sets your mindset of success.

Relax & Rejuvenate
One of the hardest things to do when you are driven is to actually take time “off” from your mission.  When doing something you love and are passionate about, it is often easy to work, work, work.  My encouragement to you is to strive to take time away from work. 


Take a yoga or meditation class, set boundaries with your time, schedule in your workouts and vacations into your calendar, discover a hobby, read a good book, or even take a nap.  Give yourself permission to pamper and take care of yourself.  We all need to occasionally step away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life.  This will re-energize you and allow you to thrive in all aspects of your life. 

As you work towards achieving balance and harmony in your life and business, remember the traits that champions use to stay hungry for success.  These are just some of the traits that I believe are critical to derive great results in your life.  Keep your eye on the prize and stay focused on whatever it is you so desire.  Regardless, I encourage you to keep balance in your own life and do all that you can to take care of yourself first, so that you than can take care of others.  After all, if you are hurt and on the sideline, you aren’t going to be able to maximize your effectiveness.

All the above traits are achieved by the
regular practise of Astanga Yoga (Power Yoga).
