How to Become a Champion
What does it mean to be a champion? Do you want to be one? Do you think you have what it takes to be champion?
Cambridge dictionary defines champion as a person who enthusiastically supports, defends, or fights for a person, belief, right or principle. It is also defined as a person who has defeated or surpassed all rivals in a competition, especially in sports.
Champions can instigate change. They can solve problems, promote innovative ideas, or even motivate others for change to happen.
Who comes to your mind when you think of a champion?
Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr., better known as Muhammad Ali, is a prime example of a champion. He is regarded as “The Greatest” in the world of boxing.
His main fight was not in the rings for money, it was for equality and freedom. He knew he had a profound impact on people, and he used that to put out his message and inspire others.
There are many more shining examples of a champion in the world today who has impacted the lives of others and made their legacy. They have become heroes who have defied the odds and achieved greatness.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lebron James, and Dwayne Johnson are some of these champions. They have triumphed over their own challenges and have inspired others to be their own heroes.
This means that being a champion is not limited to one person or to those who have talents or who are privileged. Anyone can be a winner provided they develop the champion within them.
Would it not be great if you were also a champion?
As previously said, being a champion does not rely on talents. There are certain things you need to realise for you to be one.
Ways to be a champion:
Firstly, there is a need for you to stop and look at where you are. Assess yourself without criticism, judgement, or blame. Look at what you have done or accomplished and the things that have gotten you to where you are today.
Analyse which ones are working for you. What results have you produced? Learn to let go of those that are no longer serving you.
Taking a pause is important for you to become aware of what is really happening, what you are doing to yourself, what things you need to improve on or learn.
If you do not stop and look at where you are, you will just keep doing what you have always done and continue to get what you have always got. Take a moment to see where you are and where you want to go.
Are you going on the right track?
Constantly reinvent yourself.
Next step to becoming a champion is to constantly reinvent yourself. What does it mean?
Reinventing yourself is changing yourself to be someone better. We all go through some changes in our lives. Think about it. The person we are today is different from the person we previously were.
Most of us change as a reaction to the challenges or the things around us. It is something involuntary. Only a few have consciously chosen to be the person that they are.
This is what reinvention is about, to mindfully become someone different, someone better than who you once were and to be the person you want to become. Constant reinvention is simply doing it repeatedly.
You should never stop improving yourself. Gain more experience, continue to learn new things or skills, gather insights. You must always strive to enhance yourself for it is growth and as a human being you are meant to grow.
Everyone of us has the capacity to reinvent ourselves to become someone better so know the person you want to be. Identify with your future self and bring that person into reality.
Play a bigger game.
To be a champion is to play a bigger game. Bring forth your message. Be who you were meant to be.
Being a champion is not about winning a game nor competing with others. It is the impact that you make that matters most. Think of why you were placed on this Earth? What were you meant to do?
How can you help others? How can you make someone else’s life better? How can you make a difference? What can you do to implement change?
These are the important questions you need to tackle in your every endeavor. It is also significant for you to express your uniqueness and do things like no one else could.
You have your own personality, your own identity. You do not have to be someone others want you to be nor conform to what society tells you.
You can be someone different and create your own unique ideas. Be bold and bring your intentions to life.
Think greater than you feel.
Determination and discipline are key to being a champion. To be determined and disciplined is to think greater than you feel.
This is tantamount to having the mental and physical capacity to overcome your feelings and do what is required of you. Fear often prevents you from doing and achieving many things.
How many of us give in to temptation, to procrastination, to rumination and to distraction just because we did not feel like doing something?
Our mind always wants us to stay where we are. It does not want us to move out of our comfort zones or what we are familiar with because it wants to protect us from what is unknown.
Overcoming the feeling of “I don’t feel like doing it.” Is one of the best things you can do in your life as this can pave the way for greater opportunities and bigger accomplishments.
You can be determined and disciplined and face the challenges that life presents. All you need to do is change how you feel and change your actions.
You do not have to be a victim of your emotions. You can go out and build a better future if you have the determination and discipline of a champion.
A champion has the capacity to inspire others to do something great. Being an inspiration is like leading by example. It motivates others to express their own identity and work toward their goals.
Through inspirations others can discover previously unknown possibilities, understand their capabilities, spark creativity, and boost productivity.
Being inspirational gives you the power to influence others to do things that they may have previously thought of as something unworkable or unachievable. Real people who have done remarkable things have all followed someone else.
Inspiration gives other people hope and belief in a better future.
Reinvent yourself. Play a bigger game. Think greater than you feel. Be inspirational.
Be a champion and live an extraordinary life.
