Kampiun, mungkin sudah agak jarang kita dengar alam percakapan sehari-hari atau dalam tulisan. Sudah lama digantikan dengan kata juara. Barangkali kita saat ini kalau mendengar atau membaca kata kampiun, asosiasi kita bukanlah kepada pengertian juara, melainkan pada makanan yang dijual di bopet a’la Padang, yaitu bubur kampiun. Mungkin juga berasal dari pengertian juara juga, bubur yang di Jawa dikenal sebagai bubur sumsum, yang biasanya dihidangkan pada suatu acara pembubaran panitia atau selesai diselenggarakannya suatu hajatan, dengan harapan semua penat-penat akan sirna.

Kalau bubur sumsum betul-betul mengandung sumsum tulang belakang atau bagian tulang sapi, barangkali mitos tersebut dapat dibenarkan, karena sumsum mengandungi zat-zat yang berupa sel-serbaguna yang akan menggantikan sel-sel tubuh yang rusak karena kerja yang melelahkan. Tetapi yang disebut bubur sumsum [dan mungkin juga bubur kampiun] hanyalah terdiri atas tepung beras dan santan kelapa. Waktu menyantapnya diberi lelehan gula merah [gula Jawa], apa iya akan menghilangkan penat-penat?

Di kota tempat kelahiranku dulu, bubur semacam itu disebut bubur lemu, dan lebih banyak disuapkan kepada bayi atau balita ketika mulai diperkenalkan pada makanan padat [yang halus]. Baru setelah memasuki Jakarta, saya mengenal bubur sumsum tersebut, yang semula saya kira betul-betul mengandung sumsum, ee tahunya hanya bubur lemu jualannya buk.

Kita sering mendengar, bila mana seorang petarung yang dinilai memiliki kemampuan lebih unggul dan diatas kertas diperkirakan akan memenangkan pertandingan – terutama pada pertandingan final – untuk menentukan siapa yang berhak menyandang gelar juara, dan ternyata kemudian kalah maka dikatakan petarung tersebut tidak memiliki mental juara.

Benarkah ada yang disebut mental juara itu? Dan kalau ada, apa sajakah hal-hal yang berkenaan dengan mental juara tersebut? Pada halaman berikut, saya kutipkan suatu tulisan dari Jon Gordon, mengenai lima hal yang harus ada dibenak seorang kampiun. Dan katanya itu harus dipelajari dan bisa dipelajari, bukan bawaan orok atau gawan bayek. Tapi rupanya termasuk barang yang mudah dikatakan dan sulit untuk dilaksanakan. Kelima hal tersebut berkenaan dengan mindset and believe system [pola pikir dan keyakinan diri] yang ada di benak kita.

Si Jon ini banyak menulis buku, antara lain The Energy Bus, No Complaining Rules, Training Camp, dan The Seeds. Anda bisa menemuinya di http://www.jongordon.com/ dan anda bisa memperoleh kiriman tips mingguannya [yang merupakan bagian dari promosi bukunya sih].

5 WAYS TO THINK LIKE A CHAMPION

 

I meet and learn from Champions every day. Not just in locker rooms but in classrooms, hospitals, homeless shelters, homes and office buildings. I’ve learned that to be a champion you must Think Like a Champion. Champions think differently than everyone else. They approach their life and work with a different mindset and belief system that separates them from the pack.

  1. 1.     Champions Expect to Win – When they walk on the court, on the field, into a meeting or in a classroom they expect to win. In fact they are surprised when they don’t win. They expect success and their positive beliefs often lead to positive actions and outcomes. They win in their mind first and then they win in the hearts and minds of their customers, students or fans.
  2. 2.     Champions Celebrate the Small Wins – By celebrating the small wins champions gain the confidence to go after the big wins. Big wins and big success happen through the accumulation of many small victories. This doesn’t mean champions become complacent. Rather, with the right kind of celebration and reinforcement, champions work harder, practice more and believe they can do greater things.
  3. 3.     Champions Don’t Make Excuses When They Don’t Win – They don’t focus on the faults of others. They focus on what they can do better. They see their mistakes and defeats as opportunities for growth. As a result they become stronger, wiser and better.
  4. 4.     Champions Focus on What They Get To Do, Not What They Have To Do – They see their life and work as a gift not an obligation. They know that if they want to achieve a certain outcome they must commit to and appreciate the process. They may not love every minute of their journey but their attitude and will helps them develop their skill.
  5. 5.     Champions Believe They Will Experience More Wins in the Future – Their faith is greater than their fear. Their positive energy is greater than the chorus of negativity. Their certainty is greater than all the doubt. Their passion and purpose are greater than their challenges. In spite of their situation champions believe their best days are ahead of them, not behind them.

If you don’t think you have
what it takes to be a champion, think again.
Champions aren’t born.
They are shaped and molded.
And as iron sharpens iron you can develop
your mindset and the mindset of your team
with the right thinking, beliefs and expectations
that lead to powerful actions.
