Respect and Awe

There is no privilege greater than the pressure to be a Champion, and no greater reward than earning the respect and awe of others.

I challenge you today to respond to the internal pressure to be a Champion. The price of being unstoppable is high, but the payoff is higher. We all want the rewards of being a Champion, but few are willing to put in the work. There are days when you just don’t feel like doing what it takes to be relentless. Those are the days when you have to double your effort. Do something that you don’t want to do. Champions don’t go by their feelings. Champions go by what has to be done and then do it. Remember, do or do not; there is no try. Determine today that you will do the work of a Champion. Whatever your field is, do your work with excellence. There is absolutely no reason or excuse for you not to be the best at what you do. You were created for this. This is your day. Be the Champion that you know you are supposed to be. Are you ready to do the work of a Champion?

Moving On

Whatever happens, you’ll get through this and we’ll be stronger than ever before.

In life you are going to face opposition, especially on your journey as a Champion. The adversity is going to be bigger and stronger all the time. 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. Don’t stress over the outcome because you are unstoppable. You play until you win and nothing else. You are strong now, but you will continually grow stronger as you move forward. Honestly, I am excited about your quest. I know you are going to accomplish awesome things in your life. Use your purpose to shape your destiny. Use you gifting to be the difference on other’s life’s. You are very special and unique, so use that to make it to the next level in your life. Are you strong?

New Levels

It should be your desire that you continually progress, that you reach higher heights and go to new levels.

During times like these, it’s easy to get discouraged and allow fear to creep in. But instead, why don’t you focus on the fact that you are a Champion. There is nothing too difficult for you; nothing is impossible, nothing is beyond your ability. You are safe. You are cared for. No matter what you may be going through today, you can trust that God is for you. Instead of getting down and depressed over your circumstances, look up and get a vision of God turning that situation around. Do what you do and let the rest go. You have what it takes. You are unstoppable, a relentless Champion! Face the situation and know that; you got this. Are you in control today?

Greatness

You have to remember, as a Champion, you have greatness on the inside of you.

When you go through disappointments or tough times, you may feel like you’ve been buried. You may feel like you’re in a dark, lonely place. You may feel like it’s the end; but in reality, it’s only the beginning. The fact is, you haven’t been buried; you have been planted. That means you’re coming back. And not only are you coming back, but you’re coming back in strength, better and stronger than before! In those tough times, you’ve got to draw the line in the sand. Make a declaration, “This tough time is not going to bury me. This loss, this disappointment, this injustice is not going to cause me to give up on my dreams. I refuse to live in self-pity. I know I am a seed. That means I cannot be buried. I can only be planted. I may be down, but it’s only temporary. I know I’m not only coming back, I’m coming back even better than I was before!” Are you planted today?

Showing Courage

Courage is the difference between dreaming of the life you want and living the life of your dreams.

When you step up to the person who were created to be; it will take courage. If you have already taken this step; then you know exactly what I am talking about. You will be told you can’t do it, you’re crazy for trying, what are you doing and so on. I have been told more than once that I will never make it as a Sports Psychologist. Well I am doing quite well! Now, don’t let the negative folk stop you. Matter of fact you should get them out of hearing distance. There are some people that you can only love from a long way off. All negative people are in that group. When you step up to be a Champion, it will take all the courage you can muster. Negative people will not add to your courage tank. Champions are positive and are courageous. There is no one else on the planet that can do what you were put here to do; just like you can do it. That alone takes courage. Knowing that you are going to be the target of non-champions takes courage. However, you have the courage. You have the goods. You are a Champion. You are relentless. Go do what you do and let the rest go. Be that Champion you have dreamed about being. Are you showing courage today?

Being a Champion

Every struggle, every challenge, every failure is meant to help show us who we are in this moment and how far we have to go to be a Champion.

Every thing in life happens for a reason. You may not like the reason at the time, but know that it all works in your favor. It’s all in your perspective. A Champion takes the worst of days to build the best of days. Being relentless and unstoppable requires you to take every day and make it your best. Some of the worse days of my life have been my best. As a Champion being your best at your lowest point is a necessity. There is no time for pity parties, blaming others or looking for a way out. Go through the tough times and learn. A Champion never stops learning, it’s a daily process. Take inventory of your life today. Where are you at in life? Are in a good season or a tough season? Know that every tough day is a good day. Be the Champion that you were created to be today. You ready to be a Champion?

Failed Experience

If you didn’t fail, you wouldn’t become the Champion you were created to be.

No one that has become a Champion has never failed. The failures that you go through are what teach you what being unstoppable is about. A Champion is the person that keeps getting back up when knocked down. When people are talking about how you aren’t any good and you don’t have what it takes; you simply get back up. When no one else is believing in you; you get back up. There is no quit in a Champion. There is no give up in you. When you come back from a failed experience, a lost game, you are proving them all wrong. Not because you need to prove yourself, but because you’re a Champion. Don’t let failure define you, but let coming back from the failure define you. Be the overcoming, relentless, unstoppable Champion that you are. Failure is never final but it’s a fresh start. Are you bouncing back from a failed experience today?

Under Control

Did you know that when you allow someone else’s words or actions to upset you, you’re allowing them to control you?

When you say, “You make me so mad,” you’re really just admitting that their actions have power over you. As long as that person knows they can push your buttons, as long as you keep responding the same way, you are giving them exactly what they want. Sure, people have a right to say and do things that are upsetting, but we also have a right to not get offended. We have a right to overlook their actions. It’s an honor for a man to keep “aloof” from strife. In other words, we have to remove ourselves, either physically or emotionally, from strife and offense. It’s not easy, but we can choose to let it roll off of us like water off a duck’s back! Remember, you don’t need everyone to agree with you all the time. You don’t have to have the approval of others in order to be the best. Your job is to be the person God made you to be. Overlook offenses and let go of strife so you can live in peace and victory all the days of your life. Are you being controlled today?

Bring Out Greatness

Champions don’t succeed because they are great.
They succeed because they bring out the greatness in others. Bill Russell, who played for the Boston Celtics, often said his goal was to make his teammates better. Bill Russell is a Champion. A Champion will demand the best from those around them. Being relentless you will not tolerate anything less than your best. When you bring out the greatness in those around you, you will win. Your mindset is about what is best for the team, not necessarily what is best for you. Sometimes what is best for all may not be so good for you, but as a Champion that is okay. You have the ability to be the difference in people’s lives. If you are going to be a Champion, make sure that you are others minded. Bring out the greatness in those around you and you will succeed in life. Are you bringing out the greatness?

Embrace It

The struggle, adversity, and victories are all part of the Champion’s process and we must embrace all of it.

I have never known a great person that has not been through some tough times. It’s not necessarily the adversity that makes you a Champion, the struggle exposes the greatness of a Champion. A Champion never tries to avoid the struggles and adverse situations. I have seen some that will embrace the tough times, but when success comes, they shrink away from it. Fear of success is not uncommon in many people. However as a Champion you have to embrace both the tough and good times. Be at your best at all times. Even your bad days can be good days when you learn from them. Be a learner all the time. Whatever the situation take what it is offering. A Champion must be aware what is the truth of the situation. Embrace the struggle, the adversity and the victories in life. Are you embracing them all?
