Qualities that will make you a winner

Standard
“Opportunities don’t happen. You create them.” – Chris Grosser

When it comes to life (and business) we sometimes don’t understand why some people are successful and others aren’t (we aren’t). We compare, blame, and even associate luck to our success or failures.

For long time I felt that I had lots of thing to offer, a huge potential inside me that I wasn’t using. Therefore, I was feeling unfulfilled. I used to blame others, my past experiences, my bad luck, etc. I was focusing on the negatives instead of the positives – and let me remind you that all experiences have their positives: my past experiences took me where I am today, helped me to grow every day, as a person and as a professional. We ALL have the potential to do whatever we want, this means that we all can make our dreams happen. However, sitting on our couch watching TV is not going to make a shift. We need to take control of our life and take action for it to happen. We need to have a clear WHY, a purpose, that drives us towards our goals. And we need to want to make the change.

We all have what we need to succeed inside. We do have to develop it in order to get there though. We do have to be willing to grow as a person in order to develop ourselves into a winner, in life and business.

Nothing worthwhile is easy – isn’t it? Have you ever wondered what is required to take yourself to the next level? I actually have. And what I realised is that the starting point is making a choice. Success is a choice. Winning is a choice. If you want to separate yourself from the rest, you just have to make choice.

I’m going to share with you three qualities I believe can take you wherever you want to go:

  • Believe: believe in yourself, in what you are doing and why you are doing it. Have a crystal clear WHY and believe that you can do whatever it takes for the right reasons.
  • Commitment: be committed to what you do no matter what. Do what it needs to be done, even when you don’t feel like to. Be discipline with your actions, with your goals, with your MINDSET and ownership, take responsibility. Be committed and discipline in gratitude and practice it every day.
  • Attitude: have an excellent attitude and attract excellent things. Make sure you set your attitude for the day every morning and check on it along the day.

Some more I’ve been taken through recently that I do believe play an important role in our success are:

  • Be passionate and fall in love with what you do every day.
  • Make a difference in other people’s lives.
  • Respect: yourself, those who surround you and what you have in front of you.
  • Practice no matter how good you are at something and put things on perspective.
  • Have the courage to give 100% even when things feel off.
  • Leadership: know your why and empower others, inspire those who surround you.
  • Be focused, take ownership and responsibility – no excuses.
  • Bounce back: be resilient, let things go and move forward.
  • Visualisation: visualise your future before it happens and take action to make it occurs.

I guess we already know most of those things, but sometimes we need to remind ourselves what requires to build the life we truly desire and deserve. Don’t be scared to dream big. Do it and take the required steps to make it happen – take action! Leave your comfort zone and find the way. As the say goes: “when there is a will, there is a way”.

So, what’s your dream? And how are you going to make it a reality?

Treat every single day with gratitude and love!

With lots of love,

Laia

    What we can guarantee in life is that sometimes it won’t go well and the concept of positive thinking can be destructive because it always puts the blame on our own shoulders. Sometimes in spite of doing our best a nasty shock hits which was beyond our control but we must face up to it and it is this facing up that builds character.

    • Totally agree – I’m who I’m today thanks to good and bad things that happened and I had to face and keep going, always learning along the way. Still, I think positive mindset and thinking is great along the way, even when it’s hard to see the positives. Thanks for sharing Kersten! 😊 Would love to hear more about your story!

        I’m 76 now and have managed with the constant help of my wife to bring up four children with moderate success. My oldest boy is now over 50 and unmarried but has a good job.
        In the early days we had a tough time due to a shortage of money and adolescent difficulties.
        I have no higher education and lacked in many ways until I could retire and educate myself to some degree.
        Despite some rocky times we are still together and live in a small bungalow on the south coast of England .

        • Thanks for sharing! 😊 So great to hearing you are doing well. Life always has rocky times – what’s important is to keep trying and never give up I believe (my personal approach of course!). And wow, 4 children – gold medal for you two! I’m about to have my first!

            Congratulations ! Children bring both joy and sorrow , like most things in life , we had three boys and one girl who is now a hairdresser. Two boys are married and the girl lives with her partner.

                To be quite honest I feel it was more by luck than judgement we all came through the maelstrom. It was touch and go at times. Our two middle boys fought like demons as young teenagers and one day I tried to separate them and we all landed on the floor. My wife screamed which saved the day . Now they run a business together.

  2. Thanks for your comment Isabella! This is just my humble experience. Life thought me that copying others and not having a purpose is not genuine. And you need to be genuine in order to succeed, personally and professionally I believe. I’m readying a book about what you mention, it’s called Badass your brand by Pia Silva 😊
