Abstract

Activity and self‐confidence are key elements of management success. High achievers are recognisably more open to choices and search for more efficient ways of doing things. True winners project their success, they look like winners. This article examines the psychology of winners and their patterns of success, including theories of self‐expectancy, self‐motivation, self‐discipline and self‐projection. This all adds up to a practical guide to goal achievement.
