What are the mental qualities that you need to be successful?
I was interviewed on Business Day TV about the psyche of success. The interviewer requested for me to analyse many successful people that the Champion Academy has studied in sport, business, the arts, and those that are just inspired by their roles in life. After analysis of these “whole champion” people, I then looked for common processes and qualities that made up their psyche. When I watched my interview on the show, I realized that actually, we all possess what is needed to activate a mindset for success. The magic of activating these qualities lie within the workings of three processes common to many whole champions and great leaders. These important processes are Self-awareness, Intuition, and Attention.
- Self-awareness allows you to observe that which you are thinking, speaking, and doing, which either serves or does not serve your success.
- Intuition gives you the capacity to tune in to your instincts and know something instinctively without reason or logic. Intuition enables you to take action with trust, without knowledge of the outcome.
- Attention is the key to mobilising the momentum on any successful path you embark on. Are you placing your attention on the vision, planning, and appropriate action steps that will move you toward a positive forward momentum?
