About Key To Victory

Hi, I’m Igor Smirnov and welcome to Key to Victory.

I’m a Psychologist, Author, Chess Grandmaster & a World Famous Coach, Internet entrepreneur and an Investor.

I started Key To Victory to provide you with the inspiration & strategies for turning your dreams into reality.


What differentiates people who ACTUALLY live their dreams?

Let’s use an analogy from sports –

When a person wins a competition, it’s a reflection of his/her level of mastery. The same holds true for life.

The more you develop your knowledge, skills and personal strengths, the greater are the results you will be able to achieve.

Our mission is to help you achieve your goals faster & easier.

You’ll find scientifically proven facts from psychology, neuroscience and other areas to help you maximize your potential.

We will also share stories from top performers from fields such as sports, entrepreneurship as well as stories of ordinary people who managed to transform their lives for the better.

“Building Unstoppable Self-Confidence”



I’m a family guy in my early thirties with an obsession for personal growth and a desire to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

I was born in Ukraine to an average middle class family. There was literally nothing special about me. Growing up, I lacked confidence, was troubled by social anxiety and faced various health issues.

My discovery of ‘personal development’ in my early years has revolutionised my life.

It required LOTS of efforts, however. It took me 5 years to get a Master’s degree in Psychology. I’ve paid $500 per hour for business coaching! In addition, I have invested a lot of money and time on seminars, courses, books, events and coaches.

Therefore, I’d like to share with you the things that worked for me so that you can “get there” with less hassle.

What do I mean by ‘I was able to accomplish my goals?

  • Became a ‘Chess Grandmaster’ (the highest chess title), won many tournaments and became known as one of the world’s best chess coaches.

  • Created 6-figure online businesses – Chess Academy and Key To Victory.
  • Helped millions of people achieve their goals through my free content and the advanced course “Mastering Self-Confidence”.
  • Saved and invested $100,000+ on stock market.
  • Travelled around the world and have visited 20 countries thus far.
  • Learnt a second language (my first language is Russian).
  • Practiced karate and boxing; also shifted to yoga and bodybuilding. All enabled me to fix my health issues that hindered me for years.
  • Overcame my social anxiety and even became a public speaker.

Why am I sharing all of this with you?

It’s only to demonstrate that everyone can transform their life for the better, even those who need to start from scratch.
