A Quick Guide to Channel your inner winner!
What does it take to succeed? It depends on YOU, The questions you should be asking is “what am I prepared to do to Succeed?” “What do I need to do to achieve that goal I want” you will find people will answer differently and people will take different routes to success.
Fran wanted a business investment, to get this she had to succeed at something totally alien to her. She had to adapt and turn her mind to something totally new in order to get where she wanted to be.
Let’s look at a few ways to help channel your inner winner:
Where do you want to be? What do you want? Do you want to be able to play the guitar? Learn a write an app? A degree? Or get your nosey neighbours evicted? (Don’t actually do that). Take a few moments to think, imagine yourself at the goal you are aiming for, imagine yourself at the top of your game. How does it feel? What would you do when you have achieved your goal? Buy your dream car?
Write down what you want to achieve and how long you want to set yourself to achieve this…and make it realistic, it doesn’t matter how clever they are no-one is going to be able to be heavyweight champion of the world in 2 weeks .
Set some sub goals
Now you have a goal, great! (That’s more than Leeds united ever have ) and a timeline, you should dissect your timeline into a selection of mini goals to use as stepping stones to get to the end goal. Of course, you may hit some hurdles along the way, but that’s when you need to adapt, What do you need to do to overcome any problems and reach that end goal? Work out as many small goals as you need, any problems that may occur and write them down, see the it as a journey or a process! We use processes daily to get an end result, like make a cup of tea!.. here’s a little more relevant practical test your end goal being enjoyment ….see below :

In this example the steps to reach the end goal are simple, with minimal effort and minimal sacrifice to your daily routines. Focus on one sub goal at a time without thinking of the end goal as the target as this will encourage you to skip necessary steps to get there.
Be able to Adapt
Things in this world are changing fast especially in our new digital age where change is dynamic and information spreads like wildfire. You will ultimately hit some sort of hurdle in your quest for succession.
Being able to adapt will see you excel in different areas needed to achieve your goal, for example, if your end goal is to compete in a body building competition – you will have to adapt and change the exercises you do to hit different muscles in order to achieve optimum muscle definition! Your sub goals will become daily or weekly workouts and will take considerably longer than the previous example of buying my book!
Remember, the less sacrifice you have to make the easier it will be… if it’s a big end goal, you will need to make sacrifices but do what you need to do to keep in mind ….IT WILL BE WORTH IT!
1. Work out your end goal.
2. Work out what you need to do to get there and write it down.
3. Set a realistic time frame to achieve it.
4. Set some realistic sub goals and checkpoints along the way.
5. Bask in the glory of success when you finally reach your end goal.
I hope this has inspired some of you to go out there and get what you want! Thankyou for reading and see you next time.
