The Champion Mindset is a term first coined in 1998 by Dr Allan Snyder, Director of Centre for the Mind at The University of Sydney.


"...in my opinion, what makes a champion, and I mean a champion in the broadest sense, is a champion mindset. A champion mindset! The world is viewed in its totality through this mindset. And, if you have done something great in one field, you are far more able to do it in another. Your champion mindset is the transferable commodity and not the skill itself."

Quoted from Dr Snyder's articles
- The inaugural Edwin Flack Lecture, Australian Olympic Committee, Sydney 26 June 1998
- Olympic Review June 1999 - the official publication of the Olympic Movement
- Their Winning Ways, The Australian, 8-9 April 2000
- What Makes a Champion?, Allan Snyder, Penguin, 2002


With these words, Professor Allan Snyder coined a new phrase - he introduced a powerful concept to the world!

Today, Champion Mindset programs proliferate worldwide.


Full quote:

"Great achievers have a vision that they will succeed and sometimes even see the steps leading to their success. So, in my opinion, what makes a champion, and I mean a champion in the broadest sense, is a champion mindset. And, if you have done something great in one field, you are more able to do it in another. Your champion mindset is the transferable commodity and not the skill itself. It is our mindsets which ultimately limit our expectations of ourselves and which circumscribe our boundaries. It is our mindsets which determine whether or not we have the courage to challenge others and to expand our horizons."
