How to be a winner

How to be a winner

Unlocking your winning mindset is the key to being successful at what you do. Don't have a clue how to do this? Far from just ‘working harder’, you will need to open your mind about new approaches and attitudes to life. 

The following tips will help you develop a winning mindset so you can achieve your potential:


Feeling inspired to do your best is the blueprint for success. You will need to read, watch and listen to all the great inspiration in the world to build up this feeling. Autobiographies, inspiring podcasts and motivational quotes work well for lots of people.

A good role model can also do wonders for your inspiration. This could be anyone famous or just someone you know who provides you with the drive, commitment and passion to aspire towards your best.


Don’t wade through life in neutral; move up your emotional gears into unbridled passion and enthusiasm that will propel you forwards.

Of course, you will have days when everything sucks and you’ve lost your drive. But that’s when you need to stop looking for excuses and shift your attention determinedly back on your goals to regain the passion that’s crucial for a winning mindset.


Your mind and body are so attuned to each other they will feel their best when both are healthy. So maintaining a fit body is an important part of keeping your mind focused, alert and determined to win.

Stick to a regular exercise routine of both strength workouts and full body workouts that you enjoy to keep yourself in top notch condition. Your body will then be ready to handle the pressures and challenges that come with a successful life. 


Remember to praise your progress and not perfection as you work towards your goals. Taking a moment to look at your current position helps reinforce how far you’ve come compared to where you were.

Winners are also excited by future challenges, which helps motivate them and open up new opportunities. So be the person who ignores criticism, remains inspired and steps up to tackle a challenge. In other words, a real winner!
