Do you have what it takes to be an All-Star? You don’t have to be a basketball superstar to be one, says AXA Philippines, one of the country’s leading insurance providers. All you have to do is take control of your life by creating your own game plan.
AXA recently unveiled a motivational video, “#TakeCharge,” which enumerated qualities that make a winner. Here are some tips to become your own ‘All-Star’:
Never stop grinding. Winners never quit, quitters never win. Becoming an All-Star means that you never stop training. Explore the extremes. Never underestimate how far you can go. Try new things,test your skills, and strategizeso you can fulfill your potential.
Trust the process. It’s good to strive for good results, but what’s more important is the process, how you become better at what you do. Whether you’re a leader, athlete, or parent, it is important that you frequently remind yourself why you do it. When you prioritize the process, you seek feedback, mentoring, and coaching,even when you’re at the top of your game and you become better for it.
Don’t make excuses. Blaming everyone else won’t get you anywhere. Instead of pointing fingers and making excuses about why you aren’t happy or successful in your life, own your mistakes and learn from them. After all, mistakes in life also teach us valuable lessons.
Take time to rest. Know that recovery is part of the training process. It’s okay to stop every once and a while not only to rest but also to rethink your strategy.
Always be prepared. Being prepared is the key to being an All-Star. Champions are always five steps ahead. Be ready for any and every possibility. Having a game plan is the best way to do this. The earlier you prepare, the better.
