Mindset Of A Champion

What does the mindset of a champion encompass? And what do these individuals all seem to have in common? In today’s episode of the Decide It’s Your Turn™ Podcast, Molly Fletcher joins Christina to share the similarities she has found among champion athletes and how we can implement their best practices into our own lives.

In this Decide It’s Your Turn episode, you will learn:

  • Three key foundational pieces that successful champions have in common
  • Why adding value first is important
  • How to create a life you love by leading with your passions
  • How to grow your confidence

Traits Of A Champion


As a sports agent, Molly has witnessed the behind the scenes moments for highly successful and champion athletes. She started to notice that successful people had similar traits such as being curious, having a clear purpose, and constantly learning how they can improve.


Molly shares three key foundations she’s identified in highly successful individuals:

  1. Mindset
  2. Curiosity
  3. Discipline


Learning that “no” is feedback, rather than a final answer, will allow you to keep moving forward towards your goals and develop your own champion mindset.

Adding Value In Advance


Before stepping out and asking for an opportunity, try adding value first. This can look a lot like acting like you’re a business owner before you actually have the official business. When you do this, you position yourself to have authority over what you can bring to someone or a team, but it has to come from a place of love and authenticity.


A large value add is strongly being anchored in curiosity and having impeccable listening skills. If you look at the mindset of a champion, this is something common you’ll find among many of them.

Building A Life With Your Passion


We’re presented with so many decisions and opportunities in our lives, and it’s really important to find your unique personal purpose statement you live life by.


When you trust your gut in decision making, that’s when you unlock the magic of building a life you love with your talents.


In our personal and professional lives it’s more difficult than ever to stay present. In this part of the episode, Molly shares her hopes of helping people connect more with themselves through her speaking and career.

Growing Confidence


To gain confidence and learn how to develop the mindset of a champion, you have to first understand that it is a muscle that needs to be exercised. Once you begin to take action consecutively, you then become more confident as you do so.


Much of confidence is built in the moments where one may feel discomfort or may be experiencing a challenging moment. Stepping into these situations allows you to build self-trust and equips you to take on even bigger moments to come in the future.

Leaning Into Clarity


Molly’s superpower is connecting with others in a way that is real and authentic. She allows this to be a place where they can start a journey and grow together to accomplish something great.


As women, we juggle so many different areas of our lives and it’s difficult for us to find balance. Molly shares two pieces of advice for women who are struggling to manage their life and also pursue their passion:

  1. Always remember to be gentle with yourself.
  2. Get really clear on what matters most to you and have the courage to say no to the things that don’t.
