Perhaps you lost your last competition or failed in your attempts to achieve past goals. Use past failures to add fuel to your fire. When I fail, I remind myself of how bad it feels to come up short of my expectations and desires. I convince myself to never lose again. True champions use failure as a steppingstone to success.
If you have failed in the past, analyze what you did wrong and what you can do in the future to prevent repeat occurrences. Convince your mind that you can accomplish anything you desire. You will often learn more from one loss than you will from all your victories together. You must use your experience as an opportunity to improve in the future. Perhaps you lost a competition due to fatigue. Use your knowledge to prevent a repeat occurrence. Determine your goals, believe in yourself, and accept nothing but the best.
No matter your aspirations in life, do not accept anything but the best. Apply this philosophy to your life and you will reach new levels of success. Train hard, train smart, and never quit.
OK, now that you have the mindset of a Warrior, let's get down to business. Now it is time to get the body of a Warrior.
The Warrior's Way
"Leaders aren't born they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that's the price we'll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal." - Vince Lombardi
"Defeat is a state of mind. No one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality. To me, defeat in anything is merely temporary, and its punishment is but an urge for me to greater effort to achieve my goal. Defeat simply tells me that something is wrong in my doing; it is a path leading to success and truth." — Bruce Lee
"Failure to prepare certainly means preparing to fail." - John Wooden
"The Ultimate Warrior leaves no openings - Except in his mind."
"Be master of mind rather than mastered by mind." - Zen Saying
