It’s an Olympic year and I love everything about them. While watching the Olympic trials, I realized there are 5 major similarities between Olympic athletes and successful home business entrepreneur.
Extraordinary Focus, Visualization and Meditation
Years before they Olympians compete there is an unrelenting focus on winning the gold, they focus on their physical goals, but even more important is focusing on the mental part of their game. These athletes spend quality time visualizing and meditating on their craft with the help of coaches and consultants in order to achieve their dreams.I don’t know one successful home business entrepreneur who doesn’t do the same thing. Visualization and meditation help retain focus.
Focus on Personal Development
All opportunities agree on this, you must develop yourself and have a sense of who you are and how you communicate with others. Personal development is directly related to the money you make. Olympic athletes are constantly developing their inner game because they know their mindset plays a heavy roll in winning the competition.
Focus on Executing The Things That Get Results
As Entrepreneurs we focus on Income producing activities. You can do all the visualization and meditation and personal development you need, but if you are not doing the things that make you money every day they will come and take your furniture.
Our income producing activity is simple: find leads, put information in front of the leads and following up with those leads. Our income producing activity is easy to understand.
The Olympic athletes income producing activity is going to the gym, pool, track, etc. Doing the things they need to do to refine their craft and refine their bodies so that when they show up to a competition they are at their peak.
Stay In the Game
Obviously, it is the same for Olympic athletes. They have to show up to practice, show up for their meets, show up for their coaching program and show up to the Olympics. These athletes are not going to win a gold medal if they don’t show up.
See Yourself as a Leader
You must see yourself as a leader now! Those leaders in your company are the same as you. The sooner you incorporate that in your mind and heart the sooner you will be a leader too. Look at the other people who have already achieved what you want to achieve, do what they do, and you can have their results.
Olympic athletes show up as leaders in their field of competition. They show up as winners!
