The Will To Win


Self-Motivation

This makes you believe in success and obliterate any negative emotions which could stop you. It is also a conviction that any setback can be overcome.

Calculated Risk

Calculated risk is based on sound judgment, common sense, intelligent and experience. It is part of the gain/loss equation that you always have to consider when putting something at risk. If it is a question of putting at risk, or letting go of, a limiting belief and replacing it with the conviction that success is within your grasp, the risk is worth taking.

You should be constantly willing to expand the boundaries of calculated risk not only quantity but also in quality. In quantity, it is usually a question of money. In quality, it is changing ones mindset and applying new ideas in different ways. It comes down to what you can reasonably afford to risk and what you can reasonably expect to gain.

The Mirror Effect

This effect can be noticed in many successful entrepreneurs, who faced many hurdles but never give up. In a way, self-reflection is the only face you need to have. Consult others but be your own counsel, because you will live with the consequences of your decisions.

Whatever It Takes

This concept can be seen in those who do whatever it takes to reach their goals. This may require you to undertake activities which you may not be comfortable doing in the beginning. Deep down, you know that creating a new, bolder comfort zone will lead you one step closer to success. It doest not have to be a complicated manoeuvre. Even a series of simple things can make things happen.

Just For The Record

Imagine there is an attempt to set a Guinness world record for the most number of couples in a speed dating activity. Speed dating might seem like a piece of cake, but getting into the Guinness World Records (GWR) takes a lot more time. We breaks the code on how to get immortalised.

  1. Get together a group of people if you intend to play a numbers game, or hone your unique/grotesque/outrageous stunt to perfection.
  2. Go to www.guinnessworldrecords.com and click on the link that says "Make a record attempt" and follow instructions.
  3. Send in the required documents and agreements via snail mail to Guinness World Records, 338 Euston Road, London, NWl 3BD, United Kingdom.
  4. If there is no such record existing, GWR will draw up rules specifically for the attempt. If there is an existing record, GWR will send out the corresponding rules and regulations that must be adhered to.
  5. Go "do your thing", according to the rules and regulations. (GWR witnesses are not required.)
  6. Once the attempt is completed, submit the materials to authenticate the record attempt. These could be video footage, photos and documents
    signed by the independent witnesses and participants.
  7. Pray that all is in order and that GWR will approve the record and award the certificate.
  8. Get your Guinness World Record certificate and blow the trumpet until someone decides to break your record.

Are you getting any ideas yet?
