In their early days ELO were touring monsters…I recall them playing London Ontario at least twice, and the highlight of the show was always their closer, Roll Over Beethoven

Do you think like a winner? by Paul Kaye

Do you think like a winner?

Having a winning mindset is the most powerful tool in achieving success!

Often you see and hear sport coaches and athletes talk publically – and proudly – about the need to develop a winning mindset; the need to have a “positive mental attitude.” It has always surprised me that outside of sports this way of thinking – and its importance – is not understood and often quickly dismissed. Declaring the importance of having a winning mindset in the office can get you dismissed as soft. Everyone is so busy trying to get things done that they reject anything that sounds idealistic. But… Here is the truth, battles are won and lost in people’s minds long before they are fought! I can think of one team of content creators who have talked themselves into defeat. They think they are being beaten and it is that mindset alone that is causing them to misstep.
