Secrets to Game Changers’ Success – And Why You Need Them on Your Team

The path to success is rarely straightforward, even for the game changers out there. Maybe ESPECIALLY for the game changers out there. Regardless of the industry, game changers have distinct qualities in common – they are relentless workhorses, they are fearless in their pursuits and they know the importance of getting back up after they’ve stumbled.

These characteristics manifest themselves everywhere in your organization. That’s why you need game changers on your team – not just for what they bring to the table, but for how they inspire those around them. Let’s dig deeper.

game changer [geym cheyn-jer]:


A person or individual that effects a significant shift in the current manner of doing or thinking, often by introducing an element or factor that changes an existing situation or activity in a significant way.


Game changers believe a work ethic is like a muscle – the more you work, the more you’ll see results. Those results motivate them to want to do more work, and then they start building incredible momentum. The momentum fuels internal confidence, inspiring them to make even more gains and it becomes this upward trajectory of unbelievable execution.

This is kind of energy is almost tangible, and it is definitely contagious. Watch how your game changers lead by example and rally teams around them to achieve game changing results.


We’ve all heard the quote: “Bravery is not the absence of fear, but action in the face of fear.” Game changers are not just unafraid to go after what they want, they do not let fear of failure stop them. Failure is not fatal, nor is it the opposite of success. In fact, failure is often necessary.  When you adopt this mindset, as game changers do, what’s left to fear?

This kind of confidence is pervasive, especially when it’s on display day in and day out. Perhaps your team’s ambition won’t change, but their belief and enthusiasm in crossing the finish line will.


Game changers don’t embarrass easily, or at all. They plan, execute, learn from the results and start the process again. And remember, they don’t hit home runs every time, or even every third or fourth time. There’s a lot of learning that goes on. There’s a lot of iterating, trial and error. Game changers are all about trying again and learning something from every attempt.

This process requires a healthy amount of humility and grit. Game changers normalize these “learning opportunities” for your team. They can shift mindsets and influence others to think and work differently.  They show that it’s ok to fail as long as you look to get up and move forward once again.  This is the kind of impact a game changer can bring. This is the kind of influence they can have and the kind of success they can inspire.
