The crisis your going through today could very well define your purpose in life.
We all face crisis and tough situations in life. There is no getting around that truth. However, some never go through the test. They are defined then as a person who quits, gives up, never finishes. I have been defined this way before in my life. But! There is the person who gets back up when knocked down, straightens themselves up and keeps moving forward until they are gone through the season. These people are defined as champions, purpose filled, difference makers. That is the definition that I want for myself and for you. I want to see you dusting yourself off and getting back on the path to your destiny. You have what it takes to make it through that situation you are facing today. Don’t back down! Don’t give up! Don’t quit! This is your day! What is your definition today?

Champions don’t accept failure, they know there’s more than one way to get it done.
I have failed more times than I can remember, but I never accepted the label of a failure. I know that I have just found the way not to get the job done. That means there is another way of accomplishing the goal. I see far too many people today that after one or two times of failing at something; just giving up. Then and only then are you a failure. Failing does not make one a failure; giving up makes one a failure. Nobody gets it right the first time, every time. Failing from time to time, gives you an opportunity to grow, to learn, to mature. A Champion fails, but because a Champion is unstoppable and relentless, they never give up. A Champion is measured by how many times they get back up and keep fighting the fight. If you are working toward being a Champion today, then never let failing turn you into a failure. Get back up, and finish the race. Never, never, never, never give up. Are you learning from failing today?

Champions make decisions, not suggestions, they know the answer while everyone else is still asking questions.
If you want to be a Champion you have to be prepared. The Boy Scouts say; ‘Be Prepared.’ Well, a Champion is always prepared. You know what it is you do better than anyone else. For this to happen you have to study, listen and learn. Watch others that have gone before you see how they succeeded and failed along the way. See how they did it and then improve on it. When you do this, when others are asking questions about what to do, you already have the answers to the questions. This also helps you to be decisive. When you come to a crossroads you know the way to go. You have the information to make the decision before you get there. Therefore, a Champion is a person who makes informed decisions when others are still trying to figure out the questions. An unstoppable person is willing to learn in order to be a Champion. Are you in decision making mode today?

Making changes in your life can be difficult.
There comes a time when you have to take a good long look at yourself and make some changes. People around you may be telling you about the changes you need to make, but it’s all up to you. Until you make up your mind, develop a process of change and then work your process; you will never change. Don’t try to change without a process and without a few close friends to keep you accountable. It’s what inspected not expected that gets done. I have had to make some minor and major changes in my life. I have an addictive personality. If 1 is good then 17 got to be better. This is a major weakness that I have to work on. Not keep under control, but change completely. I will not be controlled or lead by an addictive personality. Yeah, change can be difficult but not impossible. I know that if I can make changes in my life then you can as well. We are all in this together. Don’t give in and quit. Keep up, develop your process and then use that to be the Champion that you are. Are you ready to make some changes today?

You have very little control of what goes on around you, but total control of how you respond to it.
Stuff going to happen in your life. Not all is good and not all is bad. There is nothing you can do about what comes into your life. What we can control is how we deal with it. We have total power over how our attitude is toward what happens. By allowing circumstances to dictate your response, you are being controlled by life. It’s time to take control of your emotions. It’s time to be in charge of how you respond to the issues of life. When you accept responsibility for your responses; then you start living with purpose and destiny. As long as you allow life to determine how you respond there will be no growth. As you begin to do this, you will grow and begin to get stronger emotionally. You can do this! Don’t let others and circumstances control you another minute. Take charge and control of your life! Are you controlling your responses today?

Physical dominance can make you great. Mental dominance is what ultimately will make you unstoppable, a Champion.
Now days everyone has talent. The difference maker then is; mental dominance. The mental game is what will enable you to be the Champion you want to be. All the talent in the world will only get you so far and will only keep you for so long. Talent levels will start to decrease in time. However, the mental conditioning will make you stronger than your opponent. When others are falling by the side, you will continue going higher. Why do we neglect to train our minds? I encourage you today to begin a mental conditioning program. You will see results faster than you may even expect. There is such a demand today for excellence in every field, not just sports. Take your game, whatever it may be, to the next level. It is a must if you really want to be the Champion God created you to be. To be unstoppable you must have mental toughness. If you truly desire the highest level of your destiny and purpose; mental dominance has to be there. Are you mentally dominant today?

Every movement has a purpose, and you know exactly what that purpose is; you’re never killing time or going through the motions.
Every day should be a full, great and fulfilling day. The choice is up to you. If you are relentless then you make every day something special. There are goals to reach. There should be no killing time or lost time. A Champion doesn’t waste time. You make the absolute most out of every minute. Even your rest is used to make you better. You are in constant learning and growing mode. This will only happen when you have discovered your purpose. That is when every day is full. No matter what it is you do, you do it with full energy. If you’re bored or not happy with your life. Then it is time to learn your purpose and become unstoppable. You may have thought that you had no reason for being here, you have no purpose or you were just a mistake. Nothing is farther from the truth. You have purpose, reason and there are no mistakes. You have Champion material inside you. Make the most out of every moment of every day. Are you ready for a purpose filled life?

I want you to become fascinated at the prospect of a challenge as opposed to frustrated.
Today’s life can be very noisy. If we allow it, all of us can live stressed, uptight, in a hurry and on edge. In the midst of the whirlwind of activity going on around us, we’ve got to learn to not let the busyness, the frustration and stress get on the inside of us. It may be hectic on the outside, but in your mind and spirit you can have peace. When life is coming at you from all directions I want you to be excited about the challenge. Frustration only leads to more frustration, which becomes a distraction, which will cause you to fail. Welcome the challenge. Get excited about it. Look at it as an opportunity for growth. See it as your time to show what you are made of. Champions love a challenge and you are a champion. Are you fascinated about challenges facing you today?

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!God is the architect of your life. His Word is a blueprint of His hopes and plans for your life. Trust Him to help you set your goals. 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?
