I hope you are in good health. The last couple of my blogs were of the book review of how to win friends and influence people. In this blog, I'm going to discuss the review of the book 177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class: The Thought Processes, Habits, and Philosophies of the Great Ones. Well, I cannot discuss every one of them briefly in one blog, but I'm going to divide them in a couple of blogs and discuss with you briefly. Steve Siebold, who is the author of this book, is one of the greatest mental toughness coaches in the world. For years the author has met world-class business-mans, athletes, and people from different careers and he has discovered these mental toughness secrets which have also helped me a lot in my career.
Secret number 39-47
Secret 39: The great ones choose discipline over pleasure
The only one who you can count on, to stay on a discipline is the great ones. While average people sometimes choose pleasure and short-term gratification and end up not achieving their goals. While great ones or champions stay in discipline, they are not even distracted by short-term instant gratification. Champions believe anything that comes instantly is not even worth giving a try. That is the only reason why champions can keep them disciplined on a diet or exercising or striving to achieve a goal.
Secret 40: The world-class is determined to win
Sometimes, if there is one thing that can separate the winner from the loser is pure determination. Average people might be able to bear hundred failure, while champions can bear thousands of failures. The pure determination to accept nothing accept total victory is the habit of champions, that make them champions. Next time you come up to a failure or rejection, never take no for an answer. Keep on pushing as long as it takes or whatever it takes put everything of what you got in the process and you'll see you would be a champion.
Secret 41: Champions dedicate their lives to greatness
Average people, when a thing is going well they are dedicated to the thing they do and when adversities struck in they start to give up. They want instant pleasure as soon as pain kicks in. While champion, whether they are winning or losing they are dedicated to being great in what they do. It is not what they do, that defines them, it what they are. They are most dedicated and determined people alive on the earth, that is why they are the champions
Secret 42: Champions are driven by world-class beliefs system
Champions are master of their beliefs formation. They have such kind of beliefs that does not limit them but instead make them achieve greatness. While average people who're beliefs are not even their own, they are influenced by the people who are living an average life. So, that is the reason why average people stay average even after doing everything because their belief is stopping them from doing something. While it is the beliefs of champion that make him not take a "no" for the answer.
Secret 43: The world-class has great expectations
Champions are the only people who can expect to win in the most adverse situation. While people only expect good thing when things are easy and as soon as things get tough they start to give up. While the champion expectation is always high, even if they lose after high expectation they start to feel that they have done a mistake in the process and they need to learn from the mistake and try again until they achieve what they want.
Secret 44: The great ones are most enthusiastic people alive
Enthusiasm is the only thing that can make a person perform at a higher level. All the champions are full of enthusiasm, their enthusiasm not only motivates themselves but also the people around them. Whenever a coach has to motivate a team, he only targets the enthusiasm of the team and that enthusiasm is the only thing that makes them better than they would.
Secret 45: Champions love what they do
Champions always love what they do, it does not mean that they do what they love. They love what they do, unlike average people who are victims of the society, who tend to believe the job they are doing sucks, it does not suck they don't just love that. While champions know that at any point in time, they chose to be there where they are, no one forced them to be there. That is the reason why champion love what they do because what they do is not a enslavement for them.
Secret 46: Champions create a winning environment
Average people tend to create misery in their lives, the reason behind that is that they don't get out of comfort zone, they tend to create misery by telling themselves they have no choice of their own. While champions create the winning environment, through discipline, learning and growth, all of that make them not accept "no" for an answer.
Secret 47: The world-class make exercise a priority
Champions know that health is the key to success. While exercising keep them physically and mentally able and they know that the kind of confidence their body gives them. While average people are living in an illusion that they don't have time for exercising, champions are the busiest people alive on the earth. When they can take time out of their busy life to exercise then so can average people, but they tend to believe they don't have time.
