When you’re a Champion in the zone, you operate with no wasted motion, no chaos, no warning.
When you are the greatest of the best you don’t have to let anyone know what you are about to do. You just get the job done. There is no going out of your way to let others know your plan. You just execute the plan and move on. Those that haven’t reached Champion level may need to talk about what they are going to do. Not you! There are no warning shots, just you doing what you do. Next. There is no panic in your life. A Champion never panics or whines or makes excuses. Being unstoppable means you finish the job at hand. You start strong; finish stronger. To some all this sounds strange or impossible. For someone who is relentless it makes perfect sense. Do what you do best and do it better than anyone else ever has and then go higher. Demand excellence from yourself and those around you. Nothing wasted nothing left undone. Have a Champion mindset today. You have what it takes to be unstoppable, relentless, a Champion. Are you ready to be in the zone today?

The reason it is so important for you to set and achieve goals is that you have a unique purpose that only you can fulfill.
It’s kind of like building your own house — something you had better not attempt without a clear vision of your goals and a good set of blueprints, or you may wind up with some extra doors or windows and no place to put them! If you have a problem being focused and setting goals for your life, one of the best things you can do is to start writing them down, both short-term and long-term ones. It’s amazing how your life can begin to take shape when you can see on paper where you want to go. Are you ready to accomplish your goals today?

At a critical moment when everyone gets too pumped up and overheated, the Champion is the guy telling everyone to keep it cool.
To be a Champion you have to be in control of your emotions; so that you can help others to be in control of theirs. The greatest have found a way to stay cool under pressure and use that pressure to their advantage. At the moment when tension is high and others lose control; you being unstoppable, remains steady and focused on the job at hand. When others are losing it; a Champion is winning it. Bottom line, being relentless is being the one who can still operate at the highest level at all times. Pressure can bust pipes but it also produces diamonds. It’s how you manage the pressure and stress. Being the best is an every day process. It’s not being good one day and better one day; then the best one day. You have to bring your A game every day at whatever it is you do. I know giving your absolute best effort every day will not always be the same amount of effort. But just give it your best day in and day out. Are you able to produce under pressure?

A Champion is never going to stand up in front waving a towel; he’s down at the end alone, focused and unemotional.
When you are the greatest of the great you aren’t showing off. You aren’t all rah rah, but you are already preparing for the next play. There isn’t time for all the theatrics. There are other people that have that responsibility. It’s not to say that you never show emotion, but only when you have finished the job. Then it’s not all the jumping around and screaming and hollering. You acknowledge that you have won and start preparing for the next level, Being a Champion is not like being like everyone else. To be at that level requires you to stay intensely focused, staying cool, and doing work. It is your place to be the one who stays in the game and keeps others there too. I hear all the time, ‘I can’t do it, it’s too hard.’ Yeah, it’s going to be hard but you welcome it. You are relentless at what you do. Practice keeping your cool and focus in the heat of the battle. When others are getting all emotional, you are at your best and getting the job done. Are you focused in the midst of chaos today?

One of signs of greatness is wanting something better for others. It’s the willingness to take second place if it means willfully moving others higher.
It’s easy to be someone’s friend when they’ve got it all together, when they’re walking in blessing and prosperity. Anybody can believe in people after they’re successful, after they graduate, after they’re promoted, after they get their big break. But, people need our support the most before they get their breakthrough. They need us to look past their faults and failures and see their potential. Most times, people just need a little “push” of encouragement to keep them moving forward. We should always put ourselves in the other person’s shoes and see things from their perspective. You may have some good advice that could save them a lot of heartache and pain. Don’t keep it to yourself. Pick up the phone. Help them win. Maybe you excelled in a college course that they’re struggling in. Don’t sit back and think, “Too bad. They’ve got to learn it the hard way.” When you help others rise higher, you are fulfilling your mission. Today, share your love, support and encouragement. Invest life in others, see their potential. Is there someone you need to help move higher?

However, know that you will overcome and be much stronger because of it. It’s not the adversity that necessarily makes you a Champion, but it does reveal that you are a Champion.

You cannot expect success to show up or to last without knowing your purpose in life.
If success did show up you would not recognize it without first knowing what your purpose is in your life. Before you look for success, start discovering your purpose. Find out why you are here. What is it that you have been created to do? What is it that you are good at? What just seems to come natural to you? Those are questions that will help you find your purpose. When you discover your purpose then success will follow. It probably won’t come immediately, but given time to work your process, it will come. Never stop living in your purpose zone. Stay there and you will make a difference in your life and others. When you are living out your purpose, the smallest things can seem exciting. Just going to be the mailbox can be the adventure of your life. Want success in your life, then find your purpose and live there. Have you found your true purpose in life?

With so many people in the world telling us we can’t succeed, we need to hear people telling us we can.
Too often we think it’s our role to inject a dose of “reality” into someone’s life. We think it’s our job to protect people from the pain of failure and defeat. We think we must point out how bad the economy is and how horrible the job market is and how the sky is falling. We think that dreams were meant for others. I say there are enough pessimists and “realists” in the world. The world doesn’t need more negativity and impossible thinkers. The world needs more optimists, encouragers, and inspirers. The world needs more people to speak into the hearts of others and say “I believe in you.” “Follow your passion and live your purpose.” “If you have the desire then you also have the power to make it happen.” “Keep working hard.” “You’re improving and getting better. Keep it up.” “The economy is tough but you can still grow your business.” “The job market is not great but I believe you’ll find the right job for you.” “We’ve hit a lot of obstacles but we’ll get the project finished.” “Even if you fail it will lead to something even better.” “You’re learning and growing.” I encourage you today to encourage someone during your day. Are you encouraging others?

If you get to a place where your thoughts are concrete, simple, and focused, and you take deliberate action, then your thoughts become reality.
Transforming something in your life whether it’s your attitude, mindset, financial situation or bringing change into a relationship can seem like an overwhelming task. But as the old saying goes, “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” The way you change your life is one thought at a time. Your thoughts set the direction of your life. If you need to change the direction you are headed, you simply need to change your thoughts in that area. When a thought comes to your mind that “you’re never going to get well; this is your lot in life,” don’t dwell on that. Don’t sit around and have a pity party. No, immediately reject it and replace it with the truth. I encourage you to be aggressive in taking every single thought and making it stand in truth. Stay determined, stay focused and keep stating the truth because you can change your life, one thought at a time. Are you shaping your thoughts by the truth today?

You can’t commit to excellence until your mind is ready to take you there.
Teach the mind to teach the body. Excellence is not a given for us. For you to have excellence you have to make it a mindset and a way of life. For you to have excellence in your life you will have to take responsibility for your actions. No more blaming your past, your parents, your weaknesses for where you are in life. For excellence to be your lifestyle you will have to break away from the normal, from average, from getting by. Excellence as a lifestyle will cause you to make changes in your thinking and your actions. You will have a paradigm shift toward excellence. We aren’t created with that excellence mindset but it has to be a decision. Being mediocre, average, or just getting by is the lifestyle that is comfortable and the norm. Being excellent in your life is a conscious decision that you have to make and carry out. You were created with the ability for an excellent life but you have to do your part. You can have inner excellence in your life beginning today. Make the decision to do your best in everything you do, then go do just that. Excellence and integrity will take you way far in your destiny and purpose. You will never go wrong when you choose excellence. Are you ready to make inner excellence your lifestyle today?
