"I want to win, let’s cross fingers for it !"

Updated: Jan 6

Does this happen to you, willing to win and then hoping that it will be the case?

A bit like in business where you would publish a post or an ad and then wait for people to come to you and buy your products or services, etc. This is called “P&P”, in other terms, "Post and Pray."

I can see many sportive people arriving at a competition and doing just that: hoping to win. In case they do, it can even come up as a surprise, and if they don’t, then this is the open door to self-doubt, fear, excuses, you name it. Doubt. Doubt is your own worst enemy. It hides deep in our bodies and lurks around, waiting for stress or fear to pull it to the surface.


Confidence on the other hand is inner faith. A deep knowing and sureness that you have what it takes to accomplish what you set out to do.

Winning should not come up as a surprise or be the result of a "nice" coincidence. Winning should certainly not be a one-off event.



What makes someone win? What makes someone win that is not a simple coincidence?

For those answering "confidence", then you win :-)! Confidence shall indeed be on the top of your list! Let me ask you a couple of questions:

1. What is it that you set out to do?

2. On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your rock-solid self-confidence?
