Yes, I know it is not politically correct for you to want to want to be a winner. The truth though, is that inside; we all have a desire to be one. I believe that we are all engineered for accomplishment, designed for success and that we are all endowed with incredible potential to be great. If any of this offends you, read no further, because, this article will challenge you to step outside of your comfort zone and may ask you a few uncomfortable questions about why you have not realised all the possibilities, which are available to you. It may even make you feel a little guilty for not giving your best, thereby remaining stuck in average.

You can achieve Greatness
You are hard wired for accomplishment and have, unlimited opportunity pent up inside you, to achieve greatness and have a special set of incredible gifts available to you, which give you access to incredible power and empower you to unlock your greatness. This gives you the opportunity to accomplish greatness and to become a winner, if you can just find the right way to channel your unique gifts towards creating the success you desire.

If greatness is available to all of us, then why do so few people ever unlock theirs and live all the wonderful possibility, which is available to them? The answer is hidden within that dirty four letter word, called “WORK”. Everybody who wants to be great, does not have the daily discipline to do the work needed to give life to their greatness. Is this description accurate for you?

Vince Lombardi, Coach of the Green Bay Packers said it so wisely, when he said “Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to win is”. The truth as stated so wisely by Vince Lombardi, is that you can never achieve anything meaningful, unless you want it badly enough. Unless you have a deep rooted desire to do something, you will never have what it takes, to carry out the planning and preparing necessary to invite just that into your life.

Want it, Believe it , Achieve it
It is a well-researched fact that you invariably move towards the strongest impression in your mind, or said differently, “What you think about, you bring about”. The strongest impressions or the most prevalent or vivid thoughts in your mind, are the things you will be driven to do. It is for this reason that desire, plays such a crucial role towards inviting success into your experience. Without desire you will never be inspired to do the work necessary, to create the blue print or map you need to plot the course towards the greatness you want.

It is only when you truly want to achieve something that you will think about it most of the time. The more you think and talk about something, the more you program your mind to be on the look-out for opportunities and new ideas, which will help you make just that happen for you. Obviously the more you think about something, the more inspired you feel and the easier and more enjoyable the whole process necessary to plan for, take action daily and to invite it into your experience will be. Allowing yourself to feel desire and to have huge expectations, keeps you focused, accountable and driven to succeed.

Desire is your catalyst for success
Putting your chin out there and allowing yourself to feel the desire to unleash your greatness, is the first and most crucial step towards achieving the greatness you want. You most certainly have the potential to be incredible. Potential means nothing though, unless you get off your Butt and actually use your potential to be the best you can be. You have what it takes to turn your unique talent into incredible success. All that is required is effort, hard work and a huge dose of perseverance.

Inspiration comes from within
You were born to win. Dare to search within, you will discover and will finally unlock your greatness. I know it is there, if you are only willing to look and uncover it. Once you have unlocked your greatness, the next step is to create a crystal clear picture, clearly defining your desires. Then create a plan to support you to take action daily, so that you can travel the path towards the picture of possibility you have envisioned and you will finally begin to see your greatness emerge. Now get off your Butt and actually take the daily action, as outlined in your plan and you will finally unleash your greatness.
