#74 What does it take to get into the top 5 percent? – *Topic Week 4* – Mindset

In order to get to the top, you need to have the right mindset!

The winner mindset!

The second you get on the back of a horse, it already knows what kind of a person you are. No matter what you want to do in life, if you hesitate on doing something, we will all notice and ignore you. If you do not believe me, make a test. Get into a crowed and try to get from one end to the other. If you hesitate once, your way will be blocked forever. But if you are determined to get to the other side and really believe in yourself, you will just walk trough, touching others on the shoulder, “Make some space!”Hey! Let me trough! Thank you!” and the other side will just be a matter of time.

It doesn’t matter if you want to walk trough a crowd, get a new job, start with that business idea or get what you deserve. The moment you hesitate, the battle will be won by someone else.

In the sim racing world, where I am currently preparing myself for the real world of motorsport, you can see this in every race. If you are closing in on someone and do not show him instantly that you are the boss who is overtaking him, he will blog you off without any effort. This is just a matter of psychology. If you can pretend to be someone else, even though you are not on that level by now, he will be defeated before you actually start to do something. Just flash your lights, make yourself big in his mirrors. Break into the dark spot, where he can not see you anymore and he shall be defeated.

Distracting and pretending. The key to success in sim racing.

But how is this helping you to get into the top 5%? Well, as funny as this might sound, but this strategy works even if there is no competitor at all, but rather just your mind. If you play a role, pretend to be in a certain situation, you can actually trick yourself. With the right mindset, your brain will think that you are already at that point in life, where you want to be.

Pretending until it gets reality.

If you want to become a singer, pretend to already be one and do what a singer would do. If you want to be a professional photographer, do what a professional photographer would do. This is of course using “the law of attraction” but it also helps you in order to stay motivated.

Why do I work so much on my racing career, even though it will take years until I will be able to make the next step? Because if I do not start now, why should it change in the future? I will not wake up one morning and realize, that I became a racing driver over night. This is a long process, as everything else in this world. If you do not start you will not finish.

The best time for starting is right now!

Forget what your parents, your friends, your wife or husband, your kids, your colleagues or your neighbors are saying. This is your dream! This is your life! Not theirs!

But a dream stays a dream, until you actually do something about it! So, DREAM –> ACT –> SUCCEED

Three steps to your goals. Follow the path wherever it will lead you!

See you next time!
