Dreaming

If your dream is to become an overnight sensation, go back to sleep. You’re still dreaming.

Everyone wants to be great, a Champion, but few want to put in the work.  It takes you working smart and hard to develop your process. Then take your process and work it out. Those people that are overnight sensations don’t last. They didn’t do the work to keep them where they want to be. Champions know what it takes to get to the top and then to stay there. Overnighters don’t know and don’t want to know. I know you will do the work required to be your absolute best. Don’t let those that don’t do the work and still want to be the best get in your way. They won’t be around very long. Keep working your process and the results will begin to show sooner than later. Are you ready to be a Champion?

Could Be

People have a problem seeing what could be because they can only see what is.

Wait!

Decide. Act. Succeed. Repeat. What are you waiting for?

Everything you need to succeed is inside you right now. It’s time to get moving. Make a conscious decision to be the greatest at what you do.  Then get to work doing it. Work your process that you have developed to be a Champion. Don’t stop until you have reached the level of success you desire. Once you have reached that level it’s time to start the process over in order to go to the next level. A Champion is a person that is unstoppable and relentless as we have said before. Therefore, when you reach the top you just simply raise the bar higher. There is no ceiling. Too many people simply stop growing and going higher once they succeed the first time. That’s what makes you difference. You have the repeat cycle. You are never satisfied where you are at.  What you are waiting for today?

Competing

Competing against others makes you good. Competing against yourself–because you’ve passed everyone else–makes you unstoppable.

The good are always competing against others in almost everything they do. However, the greatest, the unstoppable compete against themselves. When you compete only against yourself it means you have passed everyone else. In the natural you may not have yet, but in your mindset you have already passed them. It is only a matter of time before it comes to pass in reality. You have to have the mental perspective that you are unstoppable. Then you will be. Start looking at the person in the mirror each morning and compete with that person. Each day becoming better, best, the greatest. Champions compete only with themselves and you are becoming a Champion each day. You may have some setbacks that is part of life, but keep striving to be better than you were yesterday every day. Who are you competing against today?

Back Talkers

When people talk behind your back, remember they’re exactly where they belong…behind you.

You can’t let what other people say behind your back affect you. I know at times it can be hurtful but you have to be strong. People will say things about you to try to bring you down to their level. The thing is when they talk about you it only takes them farther down. Separate yourself from those that have nothing better to do than try to bring you down. You’re better than that. You are a Champion. When they see that what they are saying doesn’t affect you the way they want it to; then they will go on to someone else. Also, don’t get caught up in listening to these people talk about other people. Know that if they are talking about others, chances are they are talking about you too. Be the person you were created to be, not what someone else tries to make you out to be. No, you’re not perfect but none of us are. We all have made mistakes and made bad decisions, but you have greatness inside you. Get back up and keep moving forward. Leaving those back talkers farther and farther behind.

Overthinking

Overthinking kills progress. Trust the gut reaction that comes from being so ready, so confident, that there’s nothing to think about.

If you’re going to be the best of the best you have to trust your process. When you’re the best you don’t think you react because you have prepared for every situation. The worse thing you can do in the heat of the moment is think. When you stop and start thinking about what to do the Champion will have already reacted and moved on. Take the time and be disciplined enough to work your process. Everyone wants to be great but not everyone takes the time to prepare. Don’t just go through the motions but be relentless in your preparation. The best take the time to do what the others won’t do. I challenge you today to prepare daily so that when your moment comes you will know what to do without giving it a second thought. Are you prepared today?

Your Control

To be a Champion you have to know what you can control and know what you can’t.

First you can’t control other people or the weather, but we do seem to try. You control yourself, your attitude, your response to adversity. Stop trying to control other people. A person that is a Champion is not a manipulator. We don’t try to control the outcome as a Champion. You work the process and do your best all the time and the results will take care of themselves. When you stop trying to control outside factors then you free up your mind to focus on being relentless. One of the main reasons that people are not unstoppable is that they are trying to focus on too much. When they attempt to focus on stuff they can’t control it takes away from their mental edge. Remind yourself when things are going bad that ‘somethings I can control, somethings I cannot.’ You will be so much freer mentally when you learn this principle. Take control of your attitude and response to adversity and see your life go to the next level. Are you controlling what you can control today?

Daily Process

The secrets of success are hidden in the routines of our daily lives.

Your routines make up your process. What you do every day to be the best. The average will do follow the process some of the time. Maybe five days a week. The unstoppable follow the process every day. When I am asked; “What do you mean by everyday”? I mean everyday. Thats Monday through Sunday. It means holidays and birthdays. It means you follow the process when you feel like it and when you don’t. A Champion knows that feelings don’t factor in to being the relentless. When you only do something when you feel like it, then you will be average and drop out when it gets tough. It’s time to separate yourself from the rest of the crowd. Get your process simplified and do it everyday. Don’t let quit, give up or just get by ever come into your mind. Follow your plan to the tee. Make the necessary adjustments on the fly. Be the best at whatever you do. Be the Champion you were created to be. If you been knocked down by life and we all have, get back up today. Do you have a daily process?

I AM

Have you ever considered the power of the statement, “I am”?

What follows these two simple words will determine what kind of life you live. ” I am strong. I am healthy.” Or, “I am slow. I am unattractive. I am stupid.” The “I am’s” that are coming out of your mouth will bring either success or failure. All through the day the power of “I am” is at work in our minds. Many times we use the power of “I am” against us. We don’t realize how it’s affecting our future. Here’s the principle. What follows the “I am” will always come looking for you. The good news is that you get to choose what follows the “I am.” When you go through the day saying, “I am unstoppable,” you become unstoppable. “I am talented.” Talent comes looking for you. You may not feel up to par but when you say, “I am healthy,” health starts heading your way. “I am strong.” Strength starts tracking you down. You’re inviting that into your life. Get up in the morning and invite good things into your life. Declare “I am relentless. I am strong. I am talented. I am disciplined. I am focused. I am a Champion.” And always make sure the truth follows “I am”! What is your I AM today?

Being Uncomfortable

What greatness really requires is a willingness to be uncomfortable.

We talk a lot in Sports Psychology about being comfort being uncomfortable. To be a Champion you are going to be uncomfortable quite a lot. You are going to have to do the things that others won’t do. Why won’t others do them? Because they are not comfortable being uncomfortable. People that choose to be average don’t want to sacrifice to be the best. To be unstoppable means you have to put in the hard work, the time, the dedication. Being uncomfortable becomes your new comfort zone. Taking your game to the next level is going to require you to go to the next level too. It will require you to be relentless in your training. It doesn’t matter what it is you’re doing. You have to out work your opponent. When they get uncomfortable and quit, you’re just getting started. Are you willing to be comfortable being uncomfortable today?
