What a Champion Does

We always feel great after a win, whether it is a promotion at work, on the playing field of sport, having your proposal accepted.

What do you do after a negative event?

Your business relationship fails,
Your spouse want’s a divorce,
A family member dies,
Your job is terminated?

And if you are Rafael Nadal you are beaten at  Wimbledon and lose your number 1 ranking.

Djokovic defeats Nadal 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3
My take after the match:
It was really entertaining! I was looking forward to a 5 set match being a Nadal fan. Novak Djokovic had the energy and all the momentum.

So does that make Nadal a total looser?
“It’s not the event itself that does us in, it’s how we perceive it.”
–Dr. Karl Menninger, psychiatrist and author

Of course not, a true champion realizes that losing a match is just part of the game. The Champion will continue to work on his/her inner and outer games. The goal is to stay at the top of their form and attack when they see an advantage.

Action steps:

4. Find mentors
