“Whether you think you can, or think you can’t–you’re right.” ~Henry Ford …
The quickest way to failure… is to think you cannot succeed. That is why it is so important to not just strive to be a winner, but to think like a winner–they go hand in hand. Successful individuals manage to actualize their goals by focusing on positive thoughts.
When it comes to developing into the person we want to become, one of the best places to start is in understanding the way we think. Perhaps I am not very good at sticking with it… having a friend or someone to hold me accountable is a good way to help overcome that. Or maybe I get depressed easily, or give up when faced with adversity… reading positive and uplifting articles could provide me with clues and helpful insight on how I can manage my anxiety and fears. Often times, all it takes an awareness of our negative thoughts, and a commitment to try do our best to overcome them. Of course, if we work at it over time, our confidence will begin to improve and our performance and results will reflect our positive thinking.
Think like a winner… because you are a winner. You are the best and most able individual at being yourself in this world. And with a bit of conditioning, you will find that your negative thoughts are being replaced with thoughts that allow the winner within to shine through.
Whenever you encounter a negative thought of failure today, squash it!
Questions to consider:
In what ways do you think like a winner? In what ways do you act like one?
What are some consequences of not thinking like a winner?
How can we change the way we think about things in terms of success or failure?
