“A champion needs a motivation above and beyond winning.”
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.
- They were driven by an internal need to perform rather than any particular external goal like fame or fortune.
- 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.
- Setbacks just made the highest achievers more determined to win.
