3 Things All Champions Share

A champion needs a motivation above and beyond winning.”

-Pat Riley


To uncover the mentality of true champions, a recent scientific study was done by the Institute of Coaching and Performance at the University of Central Lancashire in the UK. Their results showed 3 things that all champions shared to reach their peak performance whether it was in sports or business.

  1. They were driven by an internal need to perform rather than any particular external goal like fame or fortune.
  1. The very best were never satisfied – no matter how fast they ran or how many accolades they won, they still wanted to push themselves to be better.
  1. Setbacks just made the highest achievers more determined to win.

What are you willing to do to unleash the champion in you?
