A follow up to “The True Meaning Of Champion”, Ray Evernham.
One of the greatest crew chiefs and most successful car owners in the history of NASCAR history. That is how the first line in his resume reads. The accomplishments are broken down to specifics such as three time NASCAR Cup Champion, 51 wins in 216 races, voted “Greatest Crew Chief of All-Time.
If success leaves a trail, I’m following this guy.
He was speaking about and shared 12 good definitions, here is number six, CHAMPIONS love competition-the challenge of becoming more disciplined, more intense, more prepared. They realize the harder the battle, the greater the adversity, the stronger they’ll become, the quicker they’ll achieve their goals. They relish the battles. CHAMPIONS are driven to excel.
We are not all born to be race car drivers, that being said we still can complete at a high level regardless of where we are today. I would challenge you to start by competing with yourself.
This may sound a little boring, until you have mastered all the basic skills where you are today you will be defeating yourself and your efforts each day.
My first step to being a CHAMPION is to master the day in front of me.
- Did I make the right first impression?
- How are my communication skills?
- Do I have all the technical skills to preform my job at the highest level?
- Do I know what the highest level is for me?
- Am I moving forward everyday?
- What have I done to expand my knowledge?
I want to be the CHAMPION of my own world, and it takes work.
Understand you are your own biggest challenger, are you up to the task?
Thanks for spending a few minutes with me today.
See you tomorrow.
