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 seven, CHAMPIONS are never satisfied with their performance, but are always content with the fact that they are continually striving to get better.
- How do I get better?
- What do I measure to move forward each day?
- How do I know I am moving forward?
- Was that my best effort?
- What could I have done better?
These are some important questions I ask myself on a daily basis.
I know to get better each day and move forward I must measure my events however small they seem. I chose to journal and in most cases I can see my effort. The effort may be small, the question is did it move me forward for my long term goals.
I am always amazed and feel there were always opportunities I could have used to better advance my results, seldom satisfied.
Even when I reach most goals I feel like there must be something more, and still unsatisfied wanting more.
What will you reach for today? I hope it moves you forward, and I hope you are unsatisfied and reaching for more.
Thanks for spending a few minutes with me today.
