However, studying the character of the successful previous contestants and the eventual winners of the American Idol music show, the following are the things a contestant must do in order to win the contest: This is the blueprint of success in life.
- Preparation: The preparation is the key step towards winning the American idol competition. Preparation is in three dimensions; the preparation of the body,preparation of the mind and preparation of the soul.
Preparation of the body involves preparing both physically and healthwise. The contestant must exercise sufficiently to keep their body fit to face the challenging performances to be endured during the American Idol singing competition. The contestant must also feed the body the right foods: Balanced diet that will provide the body with healthy nutrition that it requires to survive the contest.
Preparation of the mind involves feeding the mind with the right information both visual and audio that serves to motivate the mind to develop a "tough skin" that will withstand all the stresses , disappointments and successes involved with the competition and its challenges.This can be achieved by reading motivational materials,books and testmonials. May also achieve mind preparation by watching past competitions and the winning performances.
Preparation of the soul involves reconnecting with the inner self. The contestants must reach out to their innermost feelings,emotions and connect with their hearts. Those who are believers must reach out to their supernatural beings and beg for devine help to win the American idol music contest. The contestant who prepares well separates himself or herself from the losers in the American Idol show.
2. One must show up to win the American Idol Contest.
In order to be a winner of the American Idol show, one must show up at the auditions.At the auditions, one must perform and win the hearts of the judges to earn an invitation to compete in Hollywood,yoyoyo! Once selected to participate in the show in Hollywood to even have the slightest chance to win the competition. No show, no win of the American Idol. one must show up at the competition in Hollywood to be a contender at the crown of the singing comeptition. It is common sense that with the dream to be an American Idol winner, one must take the initiative of appearing at the TV competition. Once one prepares well, one needs to show up to compete or else the preparation is worthless.
3.One must be coachable and a good student.
A good student listens to and applies all that they learn from their coach.To win any contest, the contestant must follow their coache's eachings and follow them to the letter being very creative in thinking and implementation.

4. Must be persistent and consistent in their performance
One day great, next day poor- This kinds of performance will cause loss of connection between the contestant and the judges,audience and the viewers. The best performers are consistent and they always go beyond the expectations of their people. During the American Idol competition, in order to win, the competitor must be persistent in their performances irrespective of the challenges,obstacles, critiscism, disappointments and any problems they face. DO NOT LET ANYONE OR ANYTHING STOP YOU FROM ACHIEVING YOUR DREAMS!
