Instinct To Win

Fighting Spirit

It’s not enough to want to win. You must have the instinct to win and if you don’t have it, you better well learn how to develop it. An instinct is an innate pattern of behavior in response to certain stimuli. The key word is innate. Many lack the natural drive to win or the fighting spirit to get back up from one’s losses and head back into the ring.

Not having the instinct to win does not mean that you cannot develop it as second nature. But developing a behavior as second nature does not come easily. It takes much practice and hard work to acquire a winning mentality, the necessary stamina, the right resources and even the valuable connections.

A lot of people also make the mistake of trying to win on their own; essentially taking all the credit and placing themselves on a pedestal. If heading down this road, then you will be in for a quick surprise. These selfish paths often lead to a dead end “right quick.” You should always be willing to work in a team when it comes to winning.

There is no sport, job or activity in this world that revolves around winning solo. For instance, tennis, golf, boxing and chess players mostly all have coaches. Businessmen, doctors, lawyers and entrepreneurs mostly all have supervisors and colleagues who they can run thoughts, ideas and questions by.

You cannot win on your own for too long. But you also cannot win on your own without a fighting spirit. You need to be willing to embrace the spurts of motivation that pop up at random times of the day and capitalize on them. Many people experience motivation but do not harness this energy; it gets redirected into laziness or passive activities.

If you want to be the best, then you have to start thinking like the best. This doesn’t mean that you should become arrogant or cocky; that’s another road that often turns into a dead end “right quick.” You can easily be winning and still be a caring, loving, compassionate and respectable person.

Never allow the idea of winning to get to your head and change your personality for the worse. Remain humble, dedicated and carry yourself with dignity. Show the world that you are great at winning, while still remaining respectably stylish in character. If you can do this, then even more doors will open up for you!

Living Your Dreams

To achieve the big dreams which you have been entertaining for years, you must be certain that you are in the right state of mind. You cannot be 100% focused on your current situation without a little dreaming in-between. Dreams are present-day unrealistic thoughts and fantasies which have the potential to become a reality in the future!

Your dreams should be alive and active every single day, regardless of whether you hold a killer job or no job. Dreams are there to smooth out the bumpy roads and provide you with hope that you will one day be in a better position in life. But not all dreams are related to wealth and prosperity.

Some dreams are about good physical health, new positive relationships or improved mental health. These dreams have nothing to do with money, fame and materialism; but these things aren’t bad either. It all depends on what you want. God gave you free will to decide what you want in life!

If one of your dreams involves a big fat piece of cake by the ocean, overlooking the turquoise water and purple sunset, then visualize and believe that every day of your life, until it becomes a reality! Never let someone else put you down because of your “grandiose” dreams; they’re not grandiose if you can visualize them with your mind’s eye!

People will always have a tendency to discredit your dreams because it’s human nature to not want others to get ahead. But don’t be like them. If someone accomplishes their dreams, sincerely congratulate them for their achievements! Having a good heart free of jealousy and envy will propel you towards your dreams at a much faster rate.

And lastly, live your dreams like there’s no tomorrow. Daniel Craig’s upcoming movie title “No Time to Die” says it best: there’s no time to cut your life short because every day is an opportunity to work towards your dreams. And you must believe that they are achievable; believe with all your will and you will succeed!
