A Champion shuts down the desire to give up and allows themselves to discover what you’re really made of, what you’re capable of doing.
The only way you will ever truly know what you are made out of is to shut down the desire to give up. You are able to do more than you think you are. We have to push ourselves past the outer limits. When the first desire to give up comes, don’t give in to it. There is far more out there for you; if you will just continue to push on. Most people never really go past the first pains of the desire to give up. To be unstoppable you have to do just that; don’t stop. Take the next step and move past average. Become the Champion you were created to be. It’s exciting to discover what you’re made of and just what all you’re really capable of doing. Are shutting down the desire to give up today?

Taking on responsibility not looking for privileges is a mark of a Champion.
When you are given much, you tend to expect much. That is one of the issues with privilege. When you haven’t had to work hard for something, but have been given it, it’s not the same. Privilege over responsibility has hurt a lot of people. The better and higher a person goes they expect more and more privileges. However, a Champion knows that the higher they go, the more responsibility they have and the fewer privileges. It’s the upside down triangle image. The farther up you go the smaller the privilege point. I have seen many people fall because they couldn’t handle the privilege point. A Champion has to be take on more responsibility than those around. A relentless person is one who isn’t looking for privileges in the first place. Be the person in the room that takes the responsibility for making it happen. Don’t look for someone to hand it to you, but go do it. That’s a key point for a Champion. Be unstoppable by taking the responsibility of getting it done. Are you taking responsibility today?

A Champion doesn’t want to give up the thing others aren’t willing to do.
Being a Champion is tough work. Doing what others aren’t willing to do is one thing that separates the best from the unstoppable. The best are really, really good, but a Champion is a stop above the best. Being a Champion means you aren’t just the best, but you are relentless and unstoppable. You have to do the unthinkable. You have to do what can’t be done. A Champion doesn’t see anything as being impossible. They see the impossible as necessary. I want to encourage you today to step up to the plate and do the impossible. Do what others aren’t willing to do. Take your purpose in life to the next level. Be the Champion! Be relentless and unstoppable. Are you willing to do the thing others aren’t willing to do?

The ability to show up every day and do what no one else is willing to do, that comes from the Champion inside you.
Champions do what others only talk about. There are a lot of people today that want to, but are not willing to pay the price. That is what makes a Champion a Champion. I have never met anyone that didn’t want to be a Champion, but wouldn’t do the work. If you desire to bring out the Champion in you, then just be consistent in showing up each and every day. Then do the work that is required and do it with excellence. Someone who keeps showing up can’t be stopped. Being unstoppable isn’t easy, that’s why so few actually follow through. However, I encourage you to be relentless in your pursuit of being a Champion. You have what it takes. God created you to be a Champion, but it’s up to you to become a Champion. Nike has it right; ‘Just do it.’ Get going today. Get your process established and then work your plan. Are you ready to show up and get it done?

Staying safe means being limited, and you can’t be limited if you’re going to be relentless.
Being unstoppable means playing with reckless abandon, but being controlled. When I say staying safe means you are limited; I don’t mean that you are careless. A Champion definitely has a plan; that’s your process. To live with destiny and purpose though means you can’t stay safe. It’s time to take the limits off your life. John Maxwell talks about the Law of the Lid. Being safe, being limited is having a lid. Being unstoppable means being unlimited, not playing if safe all the time. Take the lid off today, remove the limits from your life. Be the unstoppable Champion that you were created to be. Others may decide to put a self imposed ceiling on their performance but not you. Also, never allow anyone else to limit you. Be careful, but care free. Have a process that you follow, but don’t play it safe. Play and live your life to the fullest. Make a difference that is felt in generations to come. Are you limitless, lidless and relentless today?

The minute your mind thinks, “Done,” your instincts say, “Next.”
We talk often about not giving up. It’s entirely up to you. When you have been pushed to the outer limits of your mental and physically endurance, it’s time to find that extra gear. This is the make up of a Champion. When everyone else is stopping, you’re just getting started. When others are giving up; you are finding a way to win. Being a Champion means you don’t quit when everyone does. A Champion has a different mindset from the rest of the crowd. You have to get accustomed to the truth that you are going to be in a small crowd compared to those that just want average. However, it’s worth it when you experience being unstoppable. The hard work that goes into being a Champion is really a small price to pay. Next?

Good enough is never good enough.
A Champion doesn’t do just good enough. Many people today want to do just enough to get by. Fewer and fewer are willing to go the extra mile. It’s getting tougher to find someone to simply go the first mile. I want to encourage you to have a; ‘and then some,’ attitude. Use your gift/talent to take you to a higher and new level of life. There is nothing like the adventure of walking in your destiny every day. Don’t settle for getting by or good enough. Don’t take your life for granted. You are here for a reason, you do have a purpose in the world. There is a specific reason for your being here. I am excited about your future. You are going to make a difference in the world. You have what it takes to be a world changer. You ready to go the extra mile today?

Being relentless is what separates the good and great from the unstoppable.
What do you want to be good, great or unstoppable? First, don’t settle for good or even great, go for unstoppable. You may have settled in the past, but you don’t have to now. You have what it takes to be unstoppable, but you have to be relentless. Your purpose is too big and your destiny too awesome not to be unstoppable. Being relentless is not ever giving up, performing at your best at all times, operating in excellence in what you do. When everyone around is complaining and talking about everything being unfair; you keep moving forward. You are positive even in the middle of hell you are not distracted by what others are saying and doing. You are focused on the task at hand. Being relentless is going to put you in a small group. When you become relentless you are in rare air. Most people never go there, some don’t even want to. Be willing to pay the price and then go do it. Are you relentless?

If you want to be unstoppable, you have to face who you really are and make it work for you, not against you.
People pretend to be something that they aren’t, whether for the worse or for the better. Either way it won’t work if you want to be unstoppable. To be unstoppable you have to know you are in all reality. Once you know the true you, you then make it work in your favor. You were created to be a difference maker. You were created to be unique and specifically you. Being unstoppable doesn’t mean that you are perfect. However, if you are living in your purpose zone then you are perfect. Your imperfections are what make you perfect for your destiny. Be comfortable with yourself. Being unstoppable also means that you don’t stop yourself. Don’t wait another day. It’s time for you to step up to unstoppable. You have too much living to do not to be unstoppable. Are you ready to face the reality of who you are today?

A Champion’s attitude can be summed up in three words: ‘I own this’.
When you’re a Champion you don’t back down from a challenge. You know that no matter what happens you will find a way to win. You have the confident, borderline cocky attitude of ‘I own this.’ An unstoppable person is very confident but humble at the same time. There is a fine line there, but you are willing to walk it. You have to know that you have what it takes to get the job done. Whether it’s athletics, business world, or school; you know that you are going to get it done. There is no question that when you get knocked down that you will be back up. You have a destiny to fulfill. Too many people don’t ever get started living their destiny. This makes it even more important for you to live out your purpose. If you’re down, get back up today. ‘You own this.’ We are in this together.Are you ready to be mentally tougher today than you were yesterday?
