As I mentioned, I recently entered a contest at ChangeThis– whose “. My proposal “Stop Bring Productive, Start Being Successful” was selected to be voted on. The person with the most votes for their proposal gets their manifesto (long article) published. I was against 9 others with big ideas. Fortunately, with your help (Thank You) I won! The manifesto is coming soon. Here’s some of my take aways.
Think Like a Winner
Put your concerns aside and do your best. Confidence and determination are key. Think of a plan how to get success and do it.
Put Yourself in Position To Win
“You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take.”
If I had been intimidated by the other good ideas I wouldn’t have entered. As the lotto says- “you gotta be in it to win it” (not that I’m advocating playing the lotto). Take whatever cliche you want, the point is if you aren’t trying, you definitely wont win.
Look For Inspiration
By blog buddy Francis Wade of 2Time had entered a previous contest and won.
Ask for Help
You can’t win on your own. I asked Francis for some pointers. I asked my readers to vote. I asked my online buddies to vote. You all came through. Thanks.
