Winner was once a beginner

by Trend Enterprises Inc

Do You Believe Winners Are Born or Made?    

I used to wonder whether “Winners and Leaders” were born or made.   :roll:  I never thought of myself as either a winner or a leader.  I was more of a follower and a person who always stayed on the side or in the corner.

I Started To Study Winners

When I started my home-based business, I was told to study successful people by reading books, listening to tapes, and attending seminars.  As I studied many “winners”, I found that most of them were not winners in the beginning.  In fact, it was usually the opposite!  They did not look like they would be very successful when they were young.  However, each of them had a strong desire to learn, take action, master the skills that they needed, and be willing to do “whatever it took”, even if they were scared.   8-O

Every Beginner Had Mentors and Heroes

Another common trait which every successful person has is that they looked up to other people in their field of interest, and sought guidance and encouragement from them.  It’s so interesting to see one famous person looking up to another person, and then seeing how that senior person also has an idol she looks up to.  It’s truly the “circle of life” and how success is emulated from generation to generation.

Real Life Examples – Josh Groban, Celine Dion, and Barbra Streisand 

I found these videos where Josh Groban started out singing at a rehearsal with Celine Dion and then became the famous singer he is today.  Then I found a video of Celine Dion who is expressing to Barbra Streisand that she has been her idol, and that Barbara completes her!  Wow!  That is so cool! :lol: And we all know how famous Celine Dion is today!

 Success Leaves Tracks

I have been studying success for over 16 years and applying success principles.  I have found that success does leave tracks!  The basic foundation principles of success are all the same.  I did a post on Charice, the young singer from the Philippines, whose story exemplifies these steps. (click on her name)

John Assaraf of the Secret, recently posted “Research suggests that it takes at least 10,000 hrs of hands-on experience, rehearsal and practice to master a craft, sport or career. That’s 3 hours/day for 10 years or 6 hours/day for 5 years. Have you invested that much time to anything specific like a musical instrument? Playing chess? Building a business? Being a parent? Many people want to be paid like an expert, yet haven’t done what it takes to be one.

Do you agree that everyone starts as a beginner?   How did you like those videos?  :lol:  We would love to hear your thoughts and feelings in the comments below. :-P  May we ask you to click the “f share” button at the top of the article, to share on Facebook or “retweet” this on Twitter?

    Every great person today has his/her own personal heroes. Our success is our own making with the help and wisdom of our teachers and people we look up to.

    Kellie,
    I live your blogs and vidoes!! You are certainly a driving force to help us see just how we can achieve what we want in life AND how to get there. I am learning so much in the short time I’ve known you and I am thankful to you and those that were divinely directed to me. Yes, we were not all born winners, but we certainly can become winners. We need to do whatever it takes to succeed. Emulating other successful people, listening to them and following their examples, and being consistent, never stopping, but always moving forward each day is exciting!

    my first thought is, i gotta tell my mom! i just spent a week with her over the holidays and she plays josh groban CD like it’s nobody’s business :)

    i love how you shared the josh–>celine–>barbara connection. i’ve heard about tony robbins–>jim rohn–>earl shoaff (and mark, too! ;) and it’s so cool to see how these “winners” are connected. it really is a small circle at the “top” with plenty of room for us all.

    i do agree that everyone starts as a beginner (or “every master was once a disaster, as i heard once at an event!). and, it’s critical to always be a willing student, even when you’ve achieved success. there is always someone to learn from for sure.

    lots of love to you kellie… mahalo!

    Definitely agree!

    When you have big dreams, it only makes sense to model someone who has done what you want to do, and then give them credit for leading the way.

    But what’s really cool is that, while each of us can follow or model a leader, we eventually get to branch out on our own and make our own path. And become an inspiration for others.

    Life is a circle ….

    Kellie,
    Really loved this blog post…WOW! I saw you the”for things to re on the right, training at the 2005 Atlanta Extravaganza and listening to the videos at the same time brought me to a very surreal moment because I have always looked up to you and thought it so beautiful to have you as a part of my life for the past 12 years brought tears to my eyes. Yes, every winner was once a beginner. One day too I will be winner that will help a beginner become a winner like you have journeyed along with me to do. Much love<3
