”A winner performs when it really matters no matter the conditions, obstacles and competition.”
Everyone wants to win in something, It might be winning in sports, winning in life, winning in love, winning with money or all of the above.
What do you want to win in?
My passion and my profession is to study success, to study winning and what the habits of the happy, the successful and the winning people really are.
I don't just study other people, I try it myself just to see if it works and to elevate my own life. With the risk of repeating myself I have succeeded with many things in my own life just by implementing the habits of other successful people.
Without further due here is: The 10 Habits of a Winner

The 10 Habits of a Winner
1. Works harder (than 99% of people)
The people that takes their life to a whole nother level and leave the others behind in awe are also the ones that works harder, a lot harder than 99% of the rest of the world. Sometimes we want to believe that success is talent, and talent is success. The truth is that a lot of times talent is spelled hard work.
2. Works smarter (than 99% of people)
If you want to be a winner, it is not enough to work harder than most people. You don't have to be smart to work hard day and night. A lot of people do, with none to very little success. The winners works smarter and knows when to pull the trigger and when to take a step backwards. The winners are those that gets maximum results with as little effort as possible. The winners works hard but also smart to get great results without burning themselves out.
3. Remains calm in stormy weather
We all know that storms will come our way, sooner or later, no matter how lucky we are. The difference between the real winners and the rest of the world is that they remain calm even in stormy weather. The winners knows the difference between panic and fear.
When you are able to control yourself, you can make the best decisions even in stormy weathers.
4. Knows exactly where he/she is heading
Goals, goals, goals. Ask a winner where he/she is heading and he/she will tell you exactly where he/she is heading today, in a month, year and even in 10 years. Off course the winner knows that the course can change during the way, and are not afraid to change the goal if needed. A great way to learn more about goals and to create your own blueprint for life is to read The Goal Book.
5. Doesn't believe in shortcuts
Shortcuts are great but we will never find the big champions on that road. On the shortcuts we will find the losers, the cheaters and the lazy ones. The real winners knows that it takes time to be great and that the more effort you put in the more "luck" you will receive. The winners life gets easier and easier for every day because a winner constantly evolves in every area of life. He/she is willing to do the uncomfortable today and tomorrow to get the comfortable life in the near future.
6. Studies everything
The winners are the students of life. They can become a better investor by studying a farmer or run faster by studying a kid playing. It might sound strange but the real winners can connect dots that others can't and are not afraid to learn from everybody, everyday and every time. But they are also so smart to know when to listen and when to trust themselves.
7. Doesn't believe in failure
As the popular song by Lukas Graham states:
"I can only see my goals, I don't believe in failure."
A winner is like everyone else afraid to fail, but he/she finds the courage to do it anyway. And when the winner falls of the horse (fails), he/she raises up faster with new knowledge to become better the next time. The winner doesn't give up and have realized that it is part of the learning and winning process of life.
8. Have a heart like a lion
To have a heart like a lion means to never ever give up and stay strong when needed. But also to show love and affection. The winners hearts are big and courageous in the toughest of times. Everybody can win when the sun is shining, but it is only the winners that can defy the hardest of obstacles and win when all odds are against them.
9. Is bulletproof to opionions (of sheep)
We live in a beautiful world with encouraging people. But there is also a few "sheep" out there. The sheep are the ones that are jealous and cowards. They love to see you fail and love to give you advice that has no knowledge or good intentions. A winner is bulletproof to this. The winner knows that the sheep are not to be listened to. Instead the winners focus all their attention on the things in life that elevates life and takes them forward.
10. Does all the work behind the lights (for many years)
A real winner has his/her motivation in the heart. He/she doesn't need any lights to shine on him/her to get motivated. The true champion lives in his/her own world and are ready to do all the work behind the lights for many, many years, before no one knows his/her name.
When the day comes for the winner to actually succeed in the real world, he/she is not surprised. The winner knew all along what he/she was made of and would do it all over again if necessary.
Use these habits to become a winner in your own life, on your own terms!
