The Working Of A Champion
Are you committed to work (train) when others are not? Most people want to do something great or be a Champion….very few are willing to put the work in to accomplish “greatness”.
What are you doing in your downtime? Are you trading your future for playing games and frivolous activities ? Are you willing to work when no one is looking…so you can excel when the world is watching?
Don’t cheat the process of becoming a Champion. Pick something and learn how to train to be great at it…the discipline will translate to other areas of your life.
Champions Love Giants – hard things that will make/keep them GREAT!
Step One: Set a modest goal
Ask your parents to help you set a goal in key areas – School, Family, Sports
Make sure the goal is attainable (can achieve in 3-4 weeks) in order to build confidence and progress
Step Two: Break down goals in action steps
Establish 2-4 key activities that will help build toward goal success – ex. Make all-A’s
Meet with teacher(s) – establish feedback (weekly grading) system
Set aside 1-2 hours when you arrive home to complete all homework
Have Parent or sibling double check homework for completion, accuracy and excellence
Step Three: Submit to be accountable
Ask a Parent or sibling to verify key activities (may want to create a check-off chart to build visual history of success)
Ask teacher to communicate weekly progress recap
Step Four: Celebrate success and set a new, more challenging goal
Champions understand one of the rewards for accomplishing a goal is setting/achieving a higher goal
The purpose of establishing and achieving progressively goals is three-fold:
- Establish great work habits – persistent hard work brings success
- Repeated successes builds the confidence and creates Champions
- Champions learn to enjoy the process of winning as much as the win or trophy
Good luck accomplishing your goals! You can do it—there’s a CHAMPION within you! Unleash the Champion… work hard!
