7 ‘C’s That Create Champions

Champions

I’ve been watching some of the Summer Olympics games. I’m always inspired by the performances of the Olympians. Their drive and commitment to excellence… perfection, even… are truly admirable.

Whether you’re an athlete, entrepreneur, employee, executive, homemaker, artist or fall in some other category, if you have dreams and ambitions, the concepts below will help fuel YOUR achievement.

1. Clarity
True champions know their ‘end game’. They are focused and have a deep sense of what they want to do and why. It’s a priority for them. It defines them and they organize their lives around their goal.

2. Competence/Capability
They may have natural skills and abilities. But it’s possible, they may have developed their skills out of a decision to do so. In other words, their skills have been cultivated from years of classes, practice, coaching and hard work.

3. Curiosity
Many of the things I’m good at now are the result of developing an interest and learning everything I could about it. People who excel in certain areas may have just been curious in the beginning. They wanted to know how things worked. They studied and continue to wonder how to become even better, faster, stronger, more adept…

4. Centeredness
To experience peak performance, one must ignore distractions and stop listening to the naysayers. Can you imagine doing your best with hundreds, thousands, millions of eyes staring at you? Excellence arises from within. Focusing your attention on the quiet part of Self who knows exactly what to do or say and how to do or say it. At some point, you have to shut down outside influences and trust that you know enough and are enough to be excellent.

5. Courageousness
Google defines courageous as ‘not deterred by danger or pain; brave’. I didn’t know Google was in the dictionary business, but I liked the expression they offered. Being undeterred is what allows champions to move forward in the face of outside obstacles and internal insecurities.

6. Confidence
Many people, unfortunately, believe confidence is a prerequisite for accomplishment. It’s not. Confidence is what arises generally after a significant, momentous event has ended. It’s often only after overcoming obstacles and confronting internal fears that one feels truly invincible (or at least, prepared) for the big event on the horizon.

7. Caring
I’m always moved by the celebrations of love and appreciation for team members, even rivals at times, I see as they watch each other perform. Nothing bolsters a healthy, human ego like being able to empathize and care for someone else. Bullies may make apparent progress, but (I believe) their souls are suffering and their accomplishments, hollow. “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”

4 Features Of An Ideal Press Release

There are some people who feel that press releases don’t have as much weight as they had before. While there are some people who misuse them, when written properly, the releases still have a great impact on helping you to generate buzz about your products and brands. To help you out, here are the features that you should ensure that your release has for it to give you the desired results:

It should be newsworthy

If you look around you will find plenty of people penning news unworthy releases. For you to be successful, you should ensure that your release has something worth mentioning. This could be abnormal profits, an introduction of a new product or anything else. As rule of thumb, you should never write a release that isn’t adding new information to the people.

It should be informational

Originally, people used press releases to popularize their brands. You won’t go anywhere when you do this. The press release that you put down should be informative. If you have introduced a new product, you should tell people more about the product and not about your company. You should talk about the facts and statistics about the product for the journalists to pick it up and publish or distribute it.

It should be timely

Your press release won’t have the ideal impact if you release it at the wrong time. Experts recommend that you send the release during the productive hours of the day. This should be before 10:00 am. You should be cautious of the day that you send it out. As rule of thumb, you should send it on Tuesday or Wednesday. Never send it on Monday, Friday or during the weekends as few or no people will read it during this time.

It should be easy to read

No one is going to read your press release if it’s written in a hard-to-read language. Also, no one is going to read or even share it if it’s not beautifully formatted. Your release should be written in an easy language. It also should be professionally formatted so that people have an easy time navigating through.

Conclusion

Press releases are still effective and impactful when you write and distribute them properly. If you don’t have the skills to do it right, you should hire a professional to help you out. The professionals will write the releases for you and even distribute them on your behalf.

An Extreme Super Moon and Uranus in Aries Seem to Be Responsible for the Earth Quake in Japan

Quake

The world is holding its breath and praying for a miracle. Our hearts are wide open and we feel ourselves truly living in a global village. We feel helpless and under the waters emotionally. We are all one and connected inside and of course, we will be impacted by fear and depression circling around the planet. What can we do?

For now, we can only hold our head over water, do one step after the other. We can help the Japanese through our prayers and with money. Every dollar counts and Google has set up a link on their home page to the Red Cross to make it easy for people.

I am deeply impressed by the Japanese nature of calm and self-discipline to deal with the current situation. I think we can all learn from that; it is the best attitude to deal effectively with disasters.
