EVERY CHAMPION WAS ONCE A CONTENDER THAT REFUSED TO GIVE UP!!!
In this presentation we will be looking at what it takes to make a winner? The role of dreams-belief & achievement in this process are examined. What kills dreams- expectations, fear, & risk are the major culprits, but can be controlled by learning to harness & adopt change, aggression, & courage. Preparation is discussed at length in this webinar as well as focus/ concentration/ intensity. The development of talent & skills through practice techniques, teamwork & competition show the right path to success & learning to win. Other topics covered in this session will be the roles of: attention to detail, dealing w/ pressure, smart practice, confidence, multi-tasking, passion, energy & enthusiasm. Goal setting, attitude, responsibility & desire will also be addressed. Learning to win is a difficult concept for many, but once learned not to be forgotten or left behind!
