Thinking like a champion requires letting the logical side of your brain do the talking—and it is essential to feed it regularly, says Vincent M. Tome.

While many people are confused about their path in the world, the is no one path readily available to them—they need to figure it out for themselves.

Logically thinking things through is one of the best ways to navigate the stresses and pitfalls of life. If someone is meant to run a business, they must be well-versed not only in their craft, but every essential aspect of the business, such as marketing, account, sales, and more.

People are often told to stay motivated. However, it hardly seems an easy thing to do with everything going on in the world. This is where “The Art of Thinking,” the podcast, launched by Tome, might help. He admits that the podcast is “not for everyone.” Rather, it is for go-getters who are willing to take the risk of working endlessly and tirelessly to achieve their goals.

Tome splits the brain into two parts—the “champ” side and the “chump” side. It is here where the difference between hard work and laziness becomes obvious. The champ knows what needs to be done—and the champ in the brain needs to be fed. Eventually, it will take over the chump.

Talking about it psychologically, it pays to think like a champion—to nurture the champ side of the brain ensures the work gets done. The champ side won’t make or tolerate excuses. The champ works to achieve goals, and even in failure, learns to adapt and come out looking stronger, wiser, and better.

Isolation is key, according to Tome. Relying on motivation is just one of the numerous distractions that people face every day. Let’s face it, it is tough to stay motivated all the time. Isolating yourself from the distractions of life ensures that your goals become fixed points.

In the end, it important to pull through, says Tome. It involves doing the hard work whether one feels like it or not and turning that work into profit. Champions learn to do it over time, by holding themselves accountable for completing tasks without any excuses.
