Secrets of a Champion Mindset


Molly Fletcher
The Female Jerry Maguire

Most people overestimate talent and underestimate drive. Top performers know that complacency is the enemy of success. But the real magic happens when you stop focusing on the competition against others and start competing against yourself. This simple mindset shift unlocks potential by focusing on the process, the journey and the everyday discipline that separates the best from the rest. High achievers know that the view from the top is nice, but it’s the climb that makes it worthwhile.
