The Keys to Winning

It has been said that everyone wants to be a winner, however they define winning. Ever since Napoleon Hill spent more than 20 years to study successful people and organized them into amazing works like "Think and Grow Rich" and "Law of Success", many more successful people have been closely observed and extensively studied by other researchers. These people are the winner in their own field, as well as in life.

Today, we learned so much about winning that it makes winning become a lot easier than it used to be. In fact, with the right knowledge and concentrated effort from your part, winning is as predictable as the sun rising in the east and setting in the west.

Here are the three keys to winning.

1) Attitude

To be a winner, one must possess great attitude. Attitude is the composite of thoughts, feelings, and actions. Therefore, it's vitally important to have a great attitude, because thought leads to feeling, feeling leads to action, which in turn produce the result.

The good new is, attitude is a choice. It's something that you have complete control over, no matter what are the external problems or conditions. Attitude and result are inseparable. Attitude is the cause, and result is the effect. Positive attitude allow you to respond to the external challenge in a positive manner, whereas negative attitude will let you react to the same challenge in a negative way, which will eventually determine the result that you will get.

Therefore, cultivating a winning attitude is the first key to winning.

2) Empowering Beliefs

Second key to winning is to have an empowering belief system. The opposite of empowering belief is self-limiting belief. Self-limiting beliefs hold more people back from winning than any other factors. Most people have self-limiting belief due to the way they have been raised, the environmental conditioning, peer's influence, and media influence. It's very hard to get ahead in life by having self-limiting beliefs deeply ingrained in your brain. It's like driving a car with the emergency brake still on, you can work very hard, but you'll be making little or no progress.

It's therefore important to replace the self-limiting beliefs with empowering beliefs. The law of belief says that whatever you believe, with feeling, becomes your reality, whether or not the belief is true. The more intensely that you believe something to be true, the more likely it is that it will be true for you. So, your empowering beliefs will actually leads you into taking positive action and eventually achieve your goal.

You can cultivate positive beliefs through reading biographies and autobiographies of successful people, reading books on positive thinking and personal development, as well as associate with successful and positive people. All these will change your reference point and instill positive belief in you. Attitude and belief are closely link with each other, they work hand in hand, and one reinforces the other. So when you have developed positive attitude, it will be easier to develop positive belief.

3) Habits

The last key to winning in life is habit. Behavioral psychologists have estimated that habit determined more than 95% of what you think and what you do on a daily basis and because of that, habit has the power to determine your destiny. And since what you think and what you do will inevitably determine the result you are getting, it's overwhelmingly clear that habit is the essential component in the process of getting the result you want.

You can turn positive mental attitude and empowering belief into habits. In fact, that could be the most important habits that you can form, because it will serve you extremely well for the rest of your life. These are the internal habits.

External habits are equally vital. Some of the external habits include your working habits, planning, the way you run your day, and the way you get along with people.

Here is an exercise that will change your life for the better. Identify five winning habits that you need to form this year, and do whatever it takes to develop those habits. This is probably the most important idea that you will learn in this article, because that will change your life like night and day. After all, as mentioned earlier, your habits will determine your destiny.

In summary, when you develop winning attitude, winning beliefs system, and winning habits, winning is automatic. When these three keys to winning are in alignment, and you put your acts together, nothing can stop you from winning. You will be unstoppable.
