The Ten Step Blueprint Of Successful People!

I came across an interesting entry on Gary Vurnum’s blog which I just had to share….

(Gary’s site can be found at…http://www.oursuccesspartnership.com)

A professor at the University of Wales grilled ten top athletes in order to come up with a definition of mental toughness.

By pinning this down so precisely…he also produced a blueprint for the elite businessman or woman.

Here it is…

1) You have to have unshakeable self-belief.
2) You bounce back from setbacks with increased determination to succeed.
3) You know that you are better than your opponents.
4) Your desire for success is overpowering.
5) You are fully focused on the task in hand.


6) You regain psychological control after unexpected events.
7) You ignore others’ performances and focus on your own.
8) You thrive on the pressure of competition.
9) You can block out personal problems.
10) You can switch your professional focus on and off.

Now…I don’t know about you..but isn’t this a fantastic blueprint (with a few changes in wording, of courses) for living an ‘elite’ life?

It certainly got me looking at how I deal with things both in a business and personal sense.

What about you?

    That’s all well and good, but if you don’t possess the above 10 attributes (e.g., having an unshakeable belief in yourself), obviously you are out of luck.
    Where could you possibly get them from if you don’t already have them, if they’re not inherent to your personality?
