"The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom."
Winners enjoy the tranquility of quiet achievement. These top achieving individuals are quite comfortable about who they are, what they stand for and where they are going. When they win, as they invariably do, they never see any need for self aggrandizement. And you will never catch them boasting about this and bragging about that.
These champions do not need others to tell them how great they are or pat them on the back after their latest victory. Accolades such as these are nice, but never necessary. They prefer the path of modesty and quiet confidence. A winner's real satisfaction comes from within, knowing that he or she gave it their best and in the end came out on top.
"Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action."
The very best prepare to win, play to win and ultimately, expect to win. Whenever they lose and everyone who ever plays any game loses occasionally they simply congratulate the victor and then immediately get to work correcting their mistakes.
They view any setback as an invaluable learning experience and an opportunity for self improvement. They make certain they are better prepared the next time around.
"One that desires to excel should endeavor in those things that are in themselves most excellent."
Winners are ever the competitive lot, yet they realize that they ultimately compete against only one person. It should come as no surprise to find that the one person winners compete with is themselves.
They set their own standards for achievement and then set out to obtain them. They establish their own barometers for excellence and then relentlessly pursue them. They then go out and paint a portrait of excellence daily.
"Winners take time to relish their work, knowing that scaling the mountain is what makes the view from the top so exhilarating."
Instead of wasting your time worrying about keeping up with others, why not choose to focus your efforts and energy on the realization of your own dreams and aspirations? When you choose the path of quiet achievement, where you let your actions do all the talking, youll begin scaling those mountains you once thought beyond your reach.
A relentless quest for excellence in everything you do will speak volumes about you and your character. As the sun sets on yet another productive day, you can take great pleasure in knowing you did your best, gave it your all and that tomorrow, you will do even better. Make no mistake about it, people will sit up and take notice whenever youre out there doing your best every day.
The Bottom Line: Youll find there is no need to talk a good game when you let your actions do all the talking.
