Confidence, Depression

Posted by johnson.jonathan.m on July 4, 2013 at 3:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Confidence is the tool that allows someone to perform at his maximum potential. Depression is the tool that causes the same person to person at a lower end of his potential. Let’s say there is a boxer. How well that boxer fights on a given day depends upon what I call the confidence bar. If the person is confident the bar is filled. If the person is depressed then the bar operates at a minimum. Winning and growth in training gives confidence which feels the bar. Not properly taking losses and environmental factors can cause depression, which depletes the bar. Keep the bar filled my friends.

Having Winners on your team v.s. Good People

This video got my mind thinking http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=VTMhOHuZZAw&NR=1

For the people who do not want to watch the video it is Robert Kiyosaki (a successful entrepreneur), his daughter, and three other entrepreneurs discuss winning and how their non-stop goal to win is what keeps them motivated and driving.

Now, they did say some pretty good stuff but the overall theme was winning, winning, winning. I love winning, Put me around winners and people who only want to win.

Now, I’ve heard the winning be around winners speech all the time but it never fully rings a bell in my head. I always immediately think about having good people that are pleasant to be around that have the capacity to learn and gain new skills. The person just being a good person is the main thing that I found I needed in the past.

My favorite example of this was when I used to play basketball during lunch in middle school. Everyone would always choose the bigger, taller, more athletic kids to be on their team. Me, I always had my buddy Irfanali Karim who was easily the smallest person on the court but was one of the most nicest and pleasant guys I met while in middle school. He would be on my team and other guys like him and we would compete with the most grizzliest of opponents. It was pleasant to play with them whether we won or lost and our chemistry would grow every game because we were nice guys that liked playing with each other; we weren’t people that disliked each other that were on the same team just for the purpose of winning.

That’s just my opinion. I’ve never felt happier on the court than when I had those good guys on my team. And… we also won.
