Train Like a Champion

04 Jun

Every Monday the CEO of OCuSOFT, Cynthia Barratt, sends the entire company a motivational email from Boaz Rauchwerger. The emails are always very informative and motivational. What a great way to start the week!

I found this past week’s email very informative and I thought I would share it with you as this month’s fitness tip. The main point I’d like to get across is what it is like to be a Champion. A champion does what has to be done, when it has to be done, whether they feel like it or not. And Napolean Hill who wrote the book Think and Grow Rich states that the people who achieve the most do just 10% more than the average person. They go the extra mile, whether they feel like it or not.

What will it take for you to give that extra 10%?

One More Shot Today?

I was watching some of the NBA playoff games. The finals are starting this week between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors.

Basketball, at this level, is obviously a tough game. A number of players have been injured in the finals to the point of not being able to play. Others have played hurt and yet kept on going.

It was late in the fourth quarter and the Chicago Bulls had tied the game. The Cavs had 1.5 seconds on the clock and they would get the final shot. James hit it from the left corner and Cleveland won the game.

Napoleon Hill, in the book “Think and Grow Rich” stated that the people who achieve the most do just 10% more than the average person. They go the extra mile, whether they feel like it or not.

In fact, that is the definition of a Champion. A Champion does what has to be done, when it has to be done, whether they feel like it or not.

Champions, like all of us, get down. They just have a way of boucing back quicker

Attitude is Everything! 

So, how can we improve our attitude when we don’t feel like it? Here’s one way I suggest to my audiences. Post the following sign where you can see it every morning and just touch it!
Don’t analyze it. Just touch it every day and see what happens in the next month or two. You may just have an opportunity to take a winning shot by paying attention to a loved one, to exercising when you don’t feel like it, to watching your money more carefully, to going the extra mile at work or in your career.

The video in this newsletter, “The First 15 Minutes of Each Day”, will further help you get each day started like a Champion.

The ball is in your hands. How about taking just one extra shot today?

A Champion’s Affirmation:

“Every day I play like a Champion!”

You are special. You are unique. You are destined for greatness. You are a Champion! Have a powerful week!

One thought on “Train Like a Champion

  1. I DEFINITELY agree if I miss ANY day at the gym, Monday is a day I NEVER miss! Sometimes if I HAVE to miss a Monday (like for example if my dehautgr is sick and I can’t take them to the gym day care), I just can’t get into the swing of it for the rest of the week!
