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?

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?

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?

No matter what you want for yourself, your ultimate power source will come from the neck up, not the neck down.
Our thinking will determine if we change the way we act on the outside. On the other hand, when we just go through the motions without changing the way we think, there will be no lasting change. If you have been wanting and desiring to make changes in your life; start with your thought life. Our thought life will determine if we fail or succeed. We have to get our mind right, and then the body will follow. Change does take mental discipline; which a lot of folk today don’t seem to have, but you do. You have the potential to be a Champion. You have a sharp, strong, good mind that is disciplined. Make up your mind to make up your mind. Today you will take authority of your thought process and thought life. Today is your day to begin making the changes to take you to your destiny. Ready to control your mindset today?

If you’re serious about going where you’ve never been, pushing higher and farther, it’s time to trust the voice inside to be unstoppable.
We all have that inner voice that pushes us forward. We also have one that tells us that we can’t make it. Which one do you listen to? The one you feed the most is the one that will speak the loudest. To be unstoppable you have to completely shut out the other voice. Don’t let it continue to talk to you. Today it’s time to trust the relentless, unstoppable, Champion voice that is speaking to you. Unfortunately not everyone listens to this voice. If you are going to be your very best, however, you have to listen to the voice that refuses to let you give up. There is too much for you to accomplish to even consider giving up. I understand that you may be going through a tough season in your life. All the more reason to step up your game. Put in the work and time to be the absolute best, to be unstoppable. You will never regret the effort you put into being your best. You would regret not putting in time and listening to the inner voice that encourages you to be unstoppable. Which voice are you listening to today?

Champions don’t have to show you who’s in charge–everyone already knows.
The person that refuses to give up, is relentless is the one that will be in charge. They may not start out in charge, but in time they will be. The people that are unstoppable always make their way to the top. Some take longer than others, but they make it and then they stay there. They don’t go around telling everyone how great they are and how that they run the show. Champions let their actions do the majority of the talking. When it’s time to talk they talk. Most of the time, though, they let what they do speak for them. Watch those that are Champions in what you do. Learn from them. A true Champion will take the time to help you on becoming the best. They know it’s not all about them, but how they can help others. Being the best at whatever you do will mean you will be the one in charge one day. So learn today how to be humble and great at the same time. Are you ready to be in charge today?
