Tom Fairey on Mirror Talk Soulful Conversations

“Thomas is not your regular entrepreneur. In fact, he’s everything but normal.

After he wrestled a huge Russian guy for money (and won), he got an idea that led to an extraordinary journey of starting Stakester – a platform allowing video game players to back themselves. If you’re better than your friend, you win. If not, well…

He travelled to New York to introduce this concept to the Rockstar Games co-founder Gary Foreman. Gary listed 16 reasons why it won’t work. Then he joined Thomas’ team.

Since then, Stakester’s been able to raise millions of dollars, attract thousands of competitive players and spread the message about fundraising and building & scaling a successful online business.

Tom also runs The Back Yourself Show. A podcast on a mission to empower those thinking about launching their own startup and turning those who have into superstar successes.” The Back Yourself Show presents a leading conversation within the start-up community globally


Developing a Championship Mindset

Unlocking the Secrets to Success

Achieving greatness in any endeavour requires more than just skill and talent; it demands a championship mindset. Whether you’re an athlete, entrepreneur, student, or professional, cultivating the right mindset can be the key to unlocking your true potential and reaching the pinnacle of success. In this blog post, we will explore essential strategies and techniques to build a championship mindset that will propel you towards your goals.

Set Clear and Ambitious Goals

The first step to developing a championship mindset is to establish clear and ambitious goals. Define your objectives with precision and ensure they are challenging yet attainable. Break them down into smaller milestones, creating a roadmap that will guide your progress and keep you motivated. Visualize your success regularly and let this vision inspire you on your journey.

Embrace a Growth Mindset

A championship mindset thrives on a growth-oriented perspective. Embrace failures as opportunities to learn and improve, rather than setbacks. Recognize that challenges are stepping stones to success, and setbacks are an inherent part of any journey. Cultivate a belief in your ability to develop and acquire new skills, and use constructive feedback to fuel your progress.

Cultivate Resilience and Mental Toughness

Resilience is a hallmark of a championship mindset. In the face of adversity, remain steadfast and maintain a positive outlook. Develop mental toughness by embracing discomfort and pushing your limits. This will enable you to bounce back stronger from setbacks and maintain focus under pressure, ultimately leading to better decision-making and performance.

Practice Visualization and Positive Affirmations

Visualization is a powerful tool in building a championship mindset. Create a mental picture of your success, imagining every detail vividly. Pair this technique with positive affirmations that reinforce your belief in your abilities. Repetition of these mental exercises will build your confidence and align your subconscious mind with your goals.

Develop a Strong Work Ethic

Success rarely comes without hard work. Cultivate a strong work ethic that emphasizes dedication, consistency, and discipline. Put in the necessary effort to hone your skills and improve continuously. A championship mindset thrives on perseverance, and dedication to your craft will set you apart from the competition.


In summary, building a championship mindset is a journey of self-discovery and personal growth. By setting ambitious goals, embracing a growth mindset, cultivating resilience, and maintaining a strong work ethic, you will be on your way to achieving greatness in your chosen field. Let this mindset be the driving force that propels you towards success.
