THE ATTITUDE OF A CHAMPION! 

Dr. Denis Waitley-Former Chairman of Psychology on the US Olympic Committee's Sports Medicine Council

A closer look at the attitude of successful athletes reveals much about their character, integrity, commitment, personal fortitude, aptitude and attitude. While all of these traits are important, as a coach, we like to spend alot of time working with an athlete on his/her attitude. We feel that this trait will shape us the most on our athletic journey, and has the potential to make us or break us along the way.

A champions attitude is reflected in his/her character, integrity, commitment, personal fortitude and aptitude. A champion's attitude determines his/her resilience and outlook after facing setbacks and defeats. It's not a question of whether we'll lose or fail at some point along the way, but rather how we handle it when we do. Have you ever taken a real hard look at who you are and how you will handle these hurdles?

Champions pay the price

Everyone wants to win, but few willingly invest the time and effort victory requires. Paying the price means developing the skills and training regimen of champions-observation, imitation, repetition, and the internalization of knowledge into habits. It also means learning why and how to go the extra mile, and then seeing success as a marathon, not a dash. Champions view failures as temporary inconveniences and learning experiences.

The Olympian Within

Winners believe in their worth before they perform. Most people base their worth on their current status or achievement level, which means that until they are judged successful by society's standards, they have little to be proud of. Champions beleive in their dreams when they have only a dream to hang onto, even in the face of criticism and superior achievements by others. Non-Situational Integrity Authentic, lasting winners have an uncompromising attitude about self-honesty. They function according to an "integrity traingle" that consists of three basic questions: (1) Are my beliefs based upon truth? (2) Do my words and actions correspond with truth and honesty? (3) Before I speak or act, do I honestly consider the impact of my decisions on other people and the environment?

The Coachability Factor

Champions are always open to alternatives to improve their performance. Consistent winners are not arrogant egotists who dominate the spotlight. The most successful individuals in the game of life often are the most approachable, most gracious, least judgmental and most self-effecting. They are the ones who are most eager to learn and improve.

Being A Team Player

A team in harmony is synergy in motion, where the whole is greater than the sum of the idividual talents. When all assignments are understood-when each person takes 100 percent responsibility for the outcome-a quantum leap in performance takes place. Winners learn how to become interdependent without sacrificing individuality, how to stand while fitting in.
