Helium

A Champion is never intimidated by pressure, they thrive on it.

As we continue talking about being a Champion, an unstoppable person, pressure is always a subject that comes up. Pressure is what you feel when you don’t know what you are doing or don’t feel confident in your skill to do it. Therefore, most people don’t like the feeling of pressure. Breathing shortens, difficulty in swallowing, and sweating are the usual signs of someone under pressure. Also, the performance suffers. However, for the Champion it’s just the opposite. Pressure isn’t looked at as negative. An unstoppable person takes pressure and uses it to their advantage. Instead of it holding them down and preventing maximum effort, it pushes them up. It’s like helium in a balloon. It raises the performance level of a Champion to another level. Pressure, to a Champion, separates them even farther from the rest. If you wanting to become unstoppable, relentless and a Champion, then adjust your response to pressure. Use it to make you better. How do you feel pressure today?

Are You Imitating

Have you ever spent time with a small child or baby and had them mimic your every sound or action?

To them it’s a fun game, but internally, they are learning by watching and copying everything you do. They just watch and do the same thing. That’s because we are all prewired to be imitators. Just like little children, we are all still imitators. So many people today end up imitating what they see in the world, on TV, in the news and magazines. But we need to imitate those that have gone before us and succeeded in what we want to succeed in. If you want to be a difference maker then be an imitator, not a copy cat, but do what they have done to succeed. If you need to change your actions today, change what you are imitating by simply changing your focus. Who are you imitating today?

Fan Day

If you’re going to pursue greatness, if you’re going to be a great businessperson, a great teacher, a great parent, a great leader, you have to understand that not everyone is going to cheer you on.

I’d love to tell you that your family, friends and co-workers will celebrate you, but that’s not necessarily the case. Some people simply can’t handle your success. As you grow and win, someone will get jealous. Someone will start finding fault. Don’t be surprised if a relative tries to belittle or discredit you. You can’t focus on making everyone around you happy or you’ll start changing and lose sight of your goal. Remember, your destiny is too great to be distracted by people who are never going to affirm you. Don’t take it personally. It’s not about you. It’s their problem. Shake it off, play your game, and be great anyway. Having greatness in the middle of criticism begins with forgiveness. Don’t hold a grudge. Let it go! Rise above it all and because you’re relentless. Are you ready to be unstoppable?

Watering Your Words

When somebody calls you something, either good or bad, that seed is planted in the soil of your mind.

However, you get to determine whether or not that seed takes root and grows. When you dwell on what was said, you are watering the seed. You’re giving it a right to become a reality. That’s why it’s so important to have a disciplined thought life. It’s great when people tell you, “You’re blessed. You’re talented. You’re going to do great things.” Water those seeds. Meditate on those thoughts throughout the day. That’s what you want to become a reality.Too often, we water the wrong seeds. We dwell on what the negative people say. These people can’t make a seed take root in your life. All they can do is sow the seed. You have complete control over what seeds are going to take root and grow in your own soil. Today, you might need to uproot some wrong seeds spoken over you. Let go of the negative and choose to think on the good. What seeds are you watering today?

Rut

Too often, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut, doing the same thing the same way over and over every day.

But if we are going to live at our full potential, we should constantly be growing and sharpening our skills. We should strive to learn and grow every single day because when you stop learning, you stop growing. When you stop growing, you stop living. In this season of your life, what are you doing to stretch yourself? What are you doing to improve your skills? Don’t get trapped into thinking that “good enough” is good enough. You were created for more than just average. Today is a new day, and there are new heights for you to climb. Pursue what you love and keep developing that area of your life. Take a class or find a mentor that will help you live skillfully. As you do, you’ll see growth and success. Are you in a rut today?

Adversity Will Always Come

Adversity is going to come and there is nothing you can do to stop it.

All through life, adversity tries to stop us with a yoke of bondage — a yoke of depression, a yoke of low self-esteem, a yoke of compromise. Adversity will try to hold you down so that everything is a struggle. You may be working hard, but you can’t get ahead because you have all these yokes controlling you. Maybe you’ve been living with a yoke your whole life. It’s been passed down to you. Maybe you don’t realize it. You can’t seem to get ahead. You’re struggling in your marriage. Your children won’t do what’s right. Low self-esteem, that’s all you’ve known. However, I am here to tell you that today you don’t have to struggle any longer. You have Champion qualities inside of you. You don’t have to be on the bottom another day. Start being unstoppable today. Be the Champion you were created you to be. Are you under a yoke today?

All Yoked Up!

A yoke is something that is put around the neck of an ox to help control the animal.

It limits its movement. If the ox starts to get off course, the yoke is used to pull it back. Even though an ox is very powerful, this small yoke keeps it from doing what it wants to do. Some people don’t realize today that they’re living with a yoke around their neck. They wonder why they can’t get ahead or why everything is a struggle. It’s because of the yokes that are dragging them down. Negative words that were spoken over you can become a yoke. Every time you start to step out, you hear that voice, that parent, that coach saying, “You’re not that talented; you don’t have what it takes.” It plays again and again. Eventually, you shrink back. That’s a yoke. Today choose to forgive and release the yoke of bitterness. Don’t go around being burdened any longer. Are you under the yoke of unforgiveness today?
