A winner’s mindset is something we could all benefit from to improve ourselves.
Winners are not people who win at everything, they are people that have character, shake off the losses, and have an appetite to be better every day.
The wins will come with consistency.
Winners are inspiring and can influence the people around them with their positivity and energy.

17 Things Winners Do
1/ Persistence - whatever you’re working on and however many times you screw up, if you know what you’re shooting for matters and will have an impact, keep going. If the path was easy everyone would be doing it, you will have bumps and setbacks as your run down your goal.
2/ Hang out with other winners - winners surround themselves with positive and inspiring people who lift them up when they’re struggling and direct them when they need focus. Look at your circle, is it benefiting your journey or hindering it.
3/ Adopt a Growth Mindset - your thinking has a huge impact on your success. People with a Growth Mindset are humble and approach things very differently from someone with a Fixed Mindset. Growth Minded people believe their intelligence, skills, and experience can be developed with practice and persistence. They take ownership. They believe just because they are in this position today does not mean they cannot be in a different position tomorrow by taking big action. What Mindset do you have?
4/ Eliminate the noise - negative media, people, or any unnecessary influences within your space should be eliminated. Winners ask themselves the question “Is this helping me get to my goal?”. If it’s not, then part ways.
5/ Vision - winners have a vision of their future self. What do they look like in 3, 5, or 10 years’ time? A clear image of a potentially positive future state is powerful. It provides direction, it provides optimism, and most importantly it helps us to keep going.
6/ Goals - without goals, how we do measure progress? Set goals and objectives for what you want to achieve. Goals give you focus, direction, and a target to hit which helps you consider even the smallest of decisions.
7/ Humble - winners have confidence and self-belief but are not arrogant. They are supportive of the people around them and grateful for how far they have come and the opportunities that have opened up. They mutually respect everyone around them and are always looking for ways to give back and help others.
8/ Rest - switching off and disconnecting from any activity helps you recover. Don’t over do it. Winners take time away from their craft to reset themselves and focus their minds on other things. This enables them to come back stronger and more creative ready to achieve their goals.
