Making of a Champion Week 10 Endurance and The Death of Champions

No discussion on championship performance could or would be complete without 2 final considerations.

2. The role or the significance which champions play and how it is missed when it is missing.

Let's look at those ideas this week.

Well, when it comes to championship performance in things that matter most, as I think you'll discover today, love really has quite a bit to do with getting priorities right. Let's look at that today.

Making of a Champion Self Discipline

November 12th, 2017

What is self discipline? Ask 10 people on the street if they believe that self discipline is essential to championhip level performance and achievement and probably all 10 would say yes. It might be one of the few items they'd agree are essential. If discipline is that important, then we should understand it completely, understand what it can give us, but also what  it can't. Let's look at that today.

Making of A Champion. Determination.

October 29th, 2017

In our latest installment of the Champions series, we're looking at another of the non-negotiable qualities of championship performance. Determination. Desire and determination fit together like a powerfull car, a cool road-trip destination, and the good gas to power that car to get you to that cool place. Desire without determination is nothing more than a hope against hope that something good will come your way or mine. Let's look at that today.

Making of a Champion. Humility Review

October 22nd, 2017

Sometimes it's the common, the ordinary, the obvious that we get tripped up by. So careful in accounting for all the other details and neglecting the things which are told to us, emphasized for us and even learned by us with repetition. And yet those are the things that snag us. What if pride is one of those?

Making of a Champion. A Champion’s Foundation

October 8th, 2017

Beginning today, we'll explore - in a multi-week series - what champions are made from. Not so we can merely discect them to see what makes them great. It's nice to know what makes others great. But isn't there a little more to life than just an idle fascination with the lives of others? Wouldn't you like to be great? To be a champion? Sound too cheesy?  Too lame or over the top? Or perhaps it sounds wildly unimaginable standing where you do now? Perhaps not. This week we begin an exploration into the qualities of heart that can propel any human to greater levels of value and "performance with a purpose".  To study the qualities isn't enough. To memorize  them and be able to recite them and even to talk about them isn't enough. What will matter most is if we are  willing to engage with them, make these qualities our own in increasing amount. The world really doesn't have that many champions. Not because it couldn't have more, but because the effort involved and commitment demanded is more than most are willing to give. Are you? Are you willing to give and to give until?  Join with us on this journey. Find out. See for yourself if you're willing to become what you must to achieve all you can. Let's get started.
