Developing Winner’s Energy

Developing Winner’s Energy and The Art of Positive Momentum.

A winner is defined as a person or thing that is victorious in a contest or endeavor. All people who compete in a given activity seek to win. It is an extension of effort and the willingness to deliver our best outcome.

Winners often leverage the energy from smaller moments that they craftily snowball into bigger moments, events, and performances.
They are able to set the bar higher than their peers because they are climbing on the shoulders of past achievements in order to get there.

Bulletin Board Material

In team sports such as football, soccer, hockey, and rugby, you will often see coaches motivate their teams by using comments delivered via the media from opposing teams as a rallying cry. This is known as bulletin board material.
What you will be primarily engaged in while developing and maintaining winner’s energy, is the act of rallying behind events in your own life, and developing billboard material to motivate yourself to greater heights.

Below I’ve listed a few methods that I personally use to develop Winner’s Energy

How to Develop Your Own Positive Momentum
*Take inventory of moments where you felt great.
*Write down your 5 best qualities
(Examples of writing down your 5 best qualities)
1.) I am most comfortable when speaking in front of an audience
2.) I am calm and action-oriented during high pressure, panic-filled scenarios
3.) I am respectful of the time, energy, and effort that my friends add to my life
4.) I take my health seriously. It is a high priority for me
5.) I am a hard worker with clear goals on how to succeed within my career
*Organize your moments in a regularly referenced location to draw inspiration from. I personally use Vision boards combined with a notebook that I read through at least 3 times per week.

Developing Winners Energy

What if I don’t have much positive momentum?
My belief is that we all have had moments in our life that serve as the catalyst for positive momentum.
The difference between winners and losers is that winners understand the importance of harvesting those moments
and transitioning it into energy or momentum which serves as the fuel for even bigger accomplishments.

1.) Select the moments where the ball didn’t bounce your way in terms of outcome
2.) Write down the ideal outcome for that losing scenario
3.) Build your momentum based on ideal outcomes

Every champion or high achiever uses a form of this method. It is my intention that this post will help you to identify with the key ingredient for success so that you may be, do, and have more for yourself and your loved ones.
