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.
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
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
