If you did it, own it. If you said it, stand by it. Not just the mistakes, but all your decisions and choices.
Taking responsibility for all your actions is a must for a Champion. Whether positive or negative own your stuff. We usually talk about taking responsibility for your actions in the negative aspect. However, I want to encourage you to take responsibility for the positive stuff that you do too. Stand by all that you do. By doing this you will be more careful in all that you say and do. We all have done and said things that we aren’t proud of and some we are proud of. The common denominator is that we are the one that did it or said it. As a Champion you have to be transparent. So be careful what you say, what you do, and where you go. People are watching you and listening to you. As a Champion you are in more of the spotlight than you may like. You may not be on the National News but if you’re not careful you just may be. When I see you on the news I want to see you lifting a Championship trophy. Are you responsible for your actions today?

A Champion’s internal pressure is getting on yourself for something no one else would even notice and challenge yourself to get it right.
An unstoppable person is one who notices the small things we didn’t do right and then making the corrections. Many people, those who have decided to be average, don’t even notice these things any longer. Being a Champion means you do take notice of the small things. I have heard that we are not supposed to sweat the small things. People who don’t take notice of the small things can be good, but they will never be unstoppable. Not unless they do correct the little things that aren’t right. Even some of the people who are great notice the small things that aren’t right, but they don’t take the time to correct them. Again, it’s the Champion that challenges himself to make the correction. You can see why there are not many Champions in the world today. You have to be willing to do what others won’t do. Then when you reach the top, you raise the top even higher. Are you correcting the small things in your life today?

When you’re confident, you don’t care about what others think; you can take your mistakes seriously but still keep moving forward because you know its ok.
If you are trying, making attempts, making a difference then you are going to make mistakes. It is unavoidable. The only ones that aren’t making mistakes are those that are doing nothing. At the same time, doing nothing, is a mistake in itself. However, if you are unstoppable, then when you do make a mistake, you make it right and then move forward. You don’t beat yourself up and spend a week in a funk. A Champion has the unique ability not to take himself too seriously. They are serious about what they do, but know they can laugh at themselves when needed. There is a balance in being unstoppable and relentless. When you can shake off a mistake and keep doing what you do, then you are close to having balance. Many people never find the balance in their life that it takes to be a Champion. Are you able to move forward when you make a mistake?

A Champion steps out of his comfort zone and challenges himself to get to the next level.
To be unstoppable you have to be relentless in doing what it takes. Far too many people lack the ‘whatever it takes’ attitude. Getting to the next level is one of the things that being a Champion is all about. You have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Another reason that most people don’t go to Champion status. You will never know how high you can go if you don’t push yourself past your limits. We place limits on ourselves that are far lower than they should be. Today would be a great day to step out of your comfort zone to see how far you can go. To be live with full purpose this is a must. Don’t stop short of your true destiny, because you didn’t want to move past comfort. I don’t think you can be comfortable knowing that you aren’t doing all you can do. Take your life to the next level and see just how exciting it will be. Being a Champion is the adventure of a lifetime. Are you ready to step out of your comfort zone today and become a Champion?

You can’t be relentless if you can’t take discomfort, and you can’t be unstoppable if you only deal with pressure when you have no choice.
Being a Champion is not easy. It takes hard work, dedication, and discipline. People that are Champions never try to just get by or find the easy way out. However, once you make being unstoppable and being relentless a lifestyle you will be surprised how much easier it does get. You will have days that you don’t want to go the extra mile. There will be times when things go wrong. These are the days when you face adversity and back it down. I see people, especially parents, that don’t want their kids to have to deal with any adversity. They want life to be all smooth and easy. This will only make their adulthood that much harder. I’m no parent expert, but I do know that we all have to handle adversity in life. How we handle being uncomfortable and deal with pressure will determine how far you go in life. Are you comfortable being uncomfortable?

Your level of success is defined by how well you look at pressure and deal with it.
One of the major things that determines who is a Champion is their perspective of pressure and then how they deal with that pressure. We have talked in the past about how Champions use pressure. Champions take pressure and ride it to the top. Pressure is like helium to a someone who is unstoppable. They use pressure to rise. Others allow pressure to take them down. We all have to deal with pressure, so why not use it to your benefit. When you feel the symptoms of pressure coming on; stop and change your perspective of the pressure. You are in control of the pressure, not the other way around. Take your game to the next level by riding on the pressure. So you can see that pressure is under control. Never again allow it to hold you down. You are relentless and unstoppable; therefore, pressure has no control over you. What is your perspective of pressure?

The drive to get to the top and stay there year after year? The Champion inside of you.
Every Champion has an internal drive to be at the top. That drive is what makes them relentless. However, Champions not only get to the top, set the standard, but they stay there. It’s one thing to get to be number one, but it’s much more difficult to stay there. Don’t listen to those telling you that you can’t make it. Then when you do make it, they tell you that you can’t stay there. Eliminate the negative voices from your life. Being a Champion means that you have to be determined. Nothing can stop you, no one can stop you. Check your internal drive today and make get ready to go to the next level. I am excited about what lies ahead for you. I want to hear about your Champion experiences. Share your story! Are you ready to get your drive on today?

Minimal expectations, minimal pressure….minimal rewards.
You will get out of it; what you put into it. Have you been disappointed to the point that you don’t expect much anymore? If I don’t expect much then I won’t be disappointed. However, a Champion isn’t like this. A Champion knows that with high expectations, high pressure; there will be high reward. Nothing worth doing has low expectations or minimal pressure. High stakes, high risk, high payoff. It all goes to say that; Champions like the thrill of pressure situations. Don’t ever look for the easy job or situations. Never let the fear of the power of situation cause you to step back. Be the one that has the expectation of being a Champion. Be the one that uses the pressure to bring out the best. The reward then is being unstoppable and relentless. There is nothing like being the one who goes against the odds and wins time and time again. Expectations, pressure, rewards anyone?

Champion intentionally creates situations to jack up the pressure even higher, challenging yourself to prove what you’re capable of.
We have talked in other blogs about how a Champion uses pressure like helium, to rise above those that pressure is like an anvil. With that being said, an unstoppable, relentless Champion will create pressure situations in order to rise to the top of their game. The only way to truly see what you are made of and what you are capable of is to perform at the highest level. What makes others give up and quit; is what takes a Champion to the very top. They don’t give the honor of being Champion to those that can’t handle the pressure. Honestly, a Champion isn’t usually one that can just handle the pressure. The Champion is the one who isn’t willing or wanting to, but does create the pressure. Control the pressure, control the situation. Pressure makes people make mistakes and get careless because they don’t like pressure. If you fear pressure then you won’t perform well. That’s why to be a Champion you have to welcome pressure, perform at your best under the most pressure, and then finally create the pressure. Are you creating pressure to take you to the top today?

You can feel your negative desires and act on them, or not act on them; your self-control is what distinguishes you from everyone else.
To have the pizza or not to eat the pizza. That is the negative desire I feel right now! Yours maybe the chocolate cake, the affair, the drugs, to gossip and so on. To be an unstoppable Champion you have to be able to be in control of your negative desires. There is a Bible verse that says; God will give you the desires of your heart. I take this to mean that He will place in your heart His desires. There is no desire of God that is negative. So I have to believe that He will give you the self-control to overcome the negative desires that come to us. No Champion gives in to the negative desires. Doesn’t make a person perfect by any means. However, Champions do and don’t do what others aren’t willing to do or give into. This is one of the big reasons there are few relentless people. I believe that you are one of these people; Champion that is. Self-control is a major key to living your purpose filled life. Are you controlling your negative desires today?
