How to Think Like a Champion: 5 Must-Adopt Winner Mindset

Imagine living the successful life you have always wanted, reaching your goals, and making all your dreams a reality, how does that feel?

Everyone wants to be a champion and a winner in every area of their life, be it financially, in a relationship, emotionally or even spiritually.

Here is something you need to know – living your life as a champion and reaching your dreams and your goals are very possible.

First, you have to start by adopting the right mindset.

Your thinking will shape your life. What you think, you will become. Therefore, you must carefully choose the thoughts that are going through your mind.

When you think winning thoughts, you will act like a winner and become a champion. On the other hand, if you put garbage into your mind, you will get garbage out.

So here are the five winner mindsets that you must adopt if you want to be a champion in life.

1. Champion Always Think Big

I know you knew this already, but I’m here to remind you again that you need to think big. Great people think big because they know that they need to be thinking anyway, so they choose to think big to get inspired.

If you are earning $3,000 a month, do you think earning an additional $100 will motivate you? Most likely not. However, if you think big, like earning $30,000 a month, driving your dream car, living in your dream house with your family, etc, those will inspire and motivate you.

Do you know that it requires the same energy to think, no matter small or big? The difference is that a big thinker will end up getting better results than a small thinker.

Your playing small will not serve the world. If you want to live a great life and be a champion, start thinking big now.

Instead of thinking of winning a friendly match with your friends, think about joining the competition and winning the state or country’s title.

2. Champion Always Think Possibility

You have to understand that there is a possibility to everything. When it comes to thinking big, do you feel powerless because you feel inadequate or do you feel powerful because it is possible?

If you are in debt right now, it does not mean that you cannot be successful financially. Everything is possible and living a financially successful life is possible to anyone who dares to dream.

You must first believe that it is possible only then you will be able to tap into your potential to reach it.

Will Smith once said, “The first step is you have to say that you can.” When you believe in something, you will do it and put in more effort. Will you ever bother trying to do something you don’t believe will happen?

Thus, believe that your dreams and your goals are possible.

3. Champion Always Think Action

When you study extraordinary people who have achieved outstanding success in life, you will understand that they are action takers.

Look at successful people such as Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Michael Jordan, Lionel Messi, Andre Agassi, Serena Williams, Richard Branson, Tiger Woods, etc, they all are proactive and they are always on the move.

They think about taking action every single moment. Do you think Michael Jordan achieved his amazing basketball success because he was talented?

Not likely, he trained hard and he trained every single day. Bill Gates is one the world’s richest man, even at the point of this writing, believes in hard work:

“I never took a day off in my twenties. Not one. And I’m still fanatical, but now I’m a little less fanatical.”

You have to be extremely hard working and take massive and consistent action every day if you want to be a champion.

This is the price you need to pay to be a winner in life. Hence, be proactive and start taking massive and consistent action from now on.

4. Champion Always Think Improvement

“Success in life is the result of good judgment. Good judgment is usually the result of experience. Experience is usually the result of bad judgment.” – Anthony Robbins

There is no way you can become a champion without learning and improving what you do. You have to become the best in your industry if you want to create extraordinary results.

Training and learning are what will make you better each day. Focus on the learning even when you fail.

There are no failures in life, you have to treat failures as lessons and experiences that you can learn from.

When you fail or when you screw up, great, because you will learn something so that you will do better in the future.

People who accomplish outstanding feats in life are usually people who have failed tremendously. Look at Thomas Edison, he tried and failed more than 10,000 times.

However, he did not look at his failures as failures; instead, he treated them as 10,000 successful attempts to find out what is not working.

5. Champion Will Persist and Never Give Up

If you want to be a champion, you must learn to never give up on your dreams and your goals.

A winner will never quit and a quitter will never win. Whenever you face hard times in your life never quit and never give up. You have to look for ways and solutions to the problems.

You will never be a failure as long as you never accept it in your heart. As long as you never quit and continue to march on, you will eventually reach your destination.

You will have to keep on trying until you succeed. Just like a baby learning how to walk. When she falls down, she will get up and try again, until she walks. No wonder everyone in this world walks.

Treat everything in your life the same way; keep learning, keep trying, and never give up until you ‘walk’.


Living your life as a champion and achieving outstanding success in life may not be easy, but if you adopt these five mindsets and always think about them, you will have no problem becoming a winner in life.
