Are you a champ or a chump?
Have you ever thought about the differences between being a Champ and a Chump? They are subtle, but very important. Having been a basketball coach for over 40 years and now a professional speaker, I have gathered many details on the subject over the years. In the #CJJblog this week, I give you 12 main differences between the two. Enjoy.
- Champ: Always curious – Chump: Know it all
- Champ: Growth mindset – Chump: Fixed mindset (done learning)
- Champ: Takes pride in being a role model – Chump: Doesn’t care about being a role model
- Champ: Words match their actions – Chump: Words do not match their actions
- Champ: Service leaders and add value to others – Chump: Takers
- Champ: Team first (we > me) – Chump: Self first (me > we)
- Champ: High energy and consistently enthusiastic – Chump: Eeyore syndrome (downer)
- Champ: Optimist – Chump: Pessimist
- Champ: Outstanding work ethic (goes the extra mile) – Chump: Poor work ethic (lazy)
- Champ: Always gives their best – Chump: Gives their best when they feel like it

- Champ: Consistently does the right thing – Chump: Unreliable and breaks trust
