How to Be a Winner: 10 Tips to Achieve Success

Chitrangada has a deep understanding of the Teacher-Student relationship, due to her teaching experience. A good teacher leads by example.

"The bad news is TIME FLIES.

The good news is YOU ARE THE PILOT."

~~~Michael Althsuler.

"It always seems impossible, until it is done."----Nelson Mandela.

How to be a winner!

How to be a winner!

Winners never quit , quitters never win!

Winners never quit , quitters never win!

Who are the Winners?

A normal and regular day at an office. The Boss gives an assignment, a difficult one to his team. While others are still trying to figure out, how to complete the assigned task, there is an employee, who finishes it, within the assigned time and not only finishes it, but impresses his Boss, with his fine execution of the task.

Sounds familiar, Isn't it?

Quite often, we observe that certain professionals, succeed in whatever jobs or projects, they take upon or have been assigned by their seniors.

This is also true, that we start thinking, that they are perhaps more lucky or the favoured ones.

While this may be true sometimes, but not always.

So what is it, which makes a certain individual-----a Winner?

The fact is that the winners are not those persons, who never ever fail, but they are those persons, who never quit.

It is sometimes rightly said, that the achievers and the successful people, do not do different things, but they do things differently, from others.

Consistent effort and constant motivation can lead to Success.

Focus---Focus--Focus!

Possible vs Impossible!

10 Important Tips to become successful and become a winner:

Here are some of the rules or tips to be followed, which lay the foundation for a person, to become a winner.

1. Setting a Goal:

Setting a goal, is the first and the foremost, in turning the invisible into a visible. Unless you have a certain goal, of what you are going to achieve, how can you become a winner. You must have a vision first, and then follow it, with passion.

2. Ideas:

It is imperative, that you should have good ideas, to fulfill your aim and equally important is, that they should be driven into practice, with lot of patience and courage.

Also remaining motivated, with positive thinking, lays the foundation for emerging the winner.

3. Focus..Focus..Focus...

This is perhaps the key point to fulfill your set goal. Unless you focus completely, and keep your mind on the things you want, at the same time off the things you do not want, it would be very difficult to target your goal.

4. Team work and Team spirit:

What does the term, team work mean?

When you are working at your office or the workplace, you have to work along with a team. The Team has to act together, taking each one's opinion, without clashes of opinion, so that everyone achieves more. No ego clashes please, if it is a team job.

5. Be open to suggestions:

If you think or presume, you know everything already, where is the reason to improve. Be open to suggestions and make changes and improvements. The desire to always learn and grow, will lead you to be a winner.

In order to win, it’s important to set goals and targets and pursue them with planned efforts.

Mind the P's:

Plan-------Prepare-------Proceed-----Pursue!

The Winners Do Things Differently

6. Tough Times:

It‘s quite natural, that the difficulties are bound to come, when achieving a goal. One should not look at them as something bad or as obstacles. They are in fact, the opportunities to grow and learn. If one door is shut, another one opens, with new possibilities.

Don't we have speed breakers on the roads? But the road, ultimately does lead you, to your final destination.

It‘s rightly said, that you learn by your mistakes, and each obstacle is a stepping stone, on the road to success.

7. Possible vs Impossible:

As it is said, Impossible word is in the dictionary of fools. The difference between possible and impossible, lies in a person's determination. If you are determined to achieve your goal, nothing can stop you from achieving it.

8. Growth with Balance:

It is your ultimate 'Aptitude' and not your ' Attitude', which determines your 'Altitude' or 'Growth' or progress, in the goal, you have set for yourself.

Do not spend too much time in thinking about a thing, otherwise you will never get it done.

9. Plan---- Prepare---- Proceed----- Pursue------

Mind the 'P's:

It‘s important to follow the 'P's to successfully achieve your goal and become a winner.

'Plan' with a 'purpose' and 'proceed 'with a 'positive' approach. Again 'pursue', with 'patience' and 'persistence'.

10. Success:

Doing the right thing, in the right manner and at the right time, will certainly lead you to success.

We often read about these tips and positive quotes on Inspiration everywhere, and try to follow them also, but do we sustain our efforts!

Most of the times, we start with great enthusiasm and later on, we just loose that rhythm. So, in order to become successful, remaining motivated and focused, is very essential.

To become a winner, you have to give your 100%

**A winner is a dreamer, who never gives up.

—Nelson Mandela

**Be confident in yourself, and believe that you are a winner.

Your self confidence will make you unstoppable.

Thank you so much Lora, for reading the article and appreciating it. I am glad that you found the tips to achieve success, useful and informative.

You have added more value to the article with your insightful and thoughtful observations.

Appreciate your kind words and support. Thank you for reading and happy weekend.

Lora Hollings on September 25, 2020:

This is an excellent article on how to achieve success, Chitrangada. I love all the points you made. Minding the "P"s is a great method in achieving our goals. If you don't plan with a purpose and don't pursue with patience and persistence, then you are not giving yourself the best chance at accomplishing your goals. Many people give up on themselves, too quickly, thinking that it is just to difficult for them when in reality, it is because they didn't plan ahead and weren't patient with themselves. We can become our own obstacles or our facilitators in achieving success! Thanks for the great tips you offer in your article and the video is very helpful too.

Thanks MarieAlana, for your visit and valuable feedback. I appreciate your insightful comments, adding more value to the hub.

Thanks, you found it motivating.

Marie Alana from Ohio on March 20, 2013:

This is a very good and motivating hub! You have made some valuable points. It is very important to be open to suggestions. One can not get there alone. One must be open to suggestions in order to see where they are and to notice how they might get there. I wrote in one of my hubs about how people can learn things through participating in those extracurricular activities and by being on a team. I guess it is also true that people can be on a team in the workplace. Great hub!

Excellent points, all of them. I agree that it is the mind-set that makes a winner. Positivity is so important, as well as the knowledge that failure is just feedback, and merely a stepping-stone on the way to success.

Thanks for sharing! Voted up and awesome!
