Winning 101: What a Winner's Mindset Looks Like
You've probably heard a lot of talk about how important it is to have the "Winner's Mind," but are you curious
about what that actually means and how you can develop this mind set for your personal growth?
If so, these five winning mindset principles will help you to get your thoughts directed towards a brighter
Definiteness of Purpose
The first principle of building a winner's mindset is having definiteness of purpose. If you know exactly what
you want, it's much easier to stay focused on what will help you get it instead of being distracted by worry, fear
and the opinions of others.
Definiteness of purpose also gives you certainty and decisiveness which naturally breeds confidence,
self-reliance and which inspires practical actions.
Many people who "lose" in life do so because they have too many things that they're interested in or distracted

Proper Care of Your Mind
Winners acknowledge that their minds are body parts and that the mind must be consistently trained, cleaned out

their mind. Little do they know that through deliberate training, they could gain control over their thoughts.

The art of selective ignorance is crucial to building the mindset of a winner, and it's best accomplished by
building a clear inner vision of what you want. Again, this is why it's important to start out with definiteness of

learning experience and an opportunity to begin again more intelligent.

wisdom gained in order to build new plans towards achieving their definite purpose.
With a definite purpose in mind, it's much easier to get back on track and start taking action after a failure
has taken place.
And it's this which empowers winners to cultivate the most important characteristic of a winning mindset...
Never Give Up
One of the last speeches which Winston Churchill ever gave during his lifetime was as follows:
"Never give up. Never give up. Never give up."
And that was it. After nearly 80 years of life on this planet and experience in leading a world power, this is
