Your level of success is defined by how well you look at pressure and deal with it.
One of the major things that determines who is a Champion is their perspective of pressure and then how they deal with that pressure. We have talked in the past about how Champions use pressure. Champions take pressure and ride it to the top. Pressure is like helium to a someone who is unstoppable. They use pressure to rise. Others allow pressure to take them down. We all have to deal with pressure, so why not use it to your benefit. When you feel the symptoms of pressure coming on; stop and change your perspective of the pressure. You are in control of the pressure, not the other way around. Take your game to the next level by riding on the pressure. So you can see that pressure is under control. Never again allow it to hold you down. You are relentless and unstoppable; therefore, pressure has no control over you. What is your perspective of pressure?

The drive to get to the top and stay there year after year? The Champion inside of you.
Every Champion has an internal drive to be at the top. That drive is what makes them relentless. However, Champions not only get to the top, set the standard, but they stay there. It’s one thing to get to be number one, but it’s much more difficult to stay there. Don’t listen to those telling you that you can’t make it. Then when you do make it, they tell you that you can’t stay there. Eliminate the negative voices from your life. Being a Champion means that you have to be determined. Nothing can stop you, no one can stop you. Check your internal drive today and make get ready to go to the next level. I am excited about what lies ahead for you. I want to hear about your Champion experiences. Share your story! Are you ready to get your drive on today?

Minimal expectations, minimal pressure….minimal rewards.
You will get out of it; what you put into it. Have you been disappointed to the point that you don’t expect much anymore? If I don’t expect much then I won’t be disappointed. However, a Champion isn’t like this. A Champion knows that with high expectations, high pressure; there will be high reward. Nothing worth doing has low expectations or minimal pressure. High stakes, high risk, high payoff. It all goes to say that; Champions like the thrill of pressure situations. Don’t ever look for the easy job or situations. Never let the fear of the power of situation cause you to step back. Be the one that has the expectation of being a Champion. Be the one that uses the pressure to bring out the best. The reward then is being unstoppable and relentless. There is nothing like being the one who goes against the odds and wins time and time again. Expectations, pressure, rewards anyone?

We have talked in other blogs about how a Champion uses pressure like helium, to rise above those that pressure is like an anvil. With that being said, an unstoppable, relentless Champion will create pressure situations in order to rise to the top of their game. The only way to truly see what you are made of and what you are capable of is to perform at the highest level. What makes others give up and quit; is what takes a Champion to the very top. They don’t give the honor of being Champion to those that can’t handle the pressure. Honestly, a Champion isn’t usually one that can just handle the pressure. The Champion is the one who isn’t willing or wanting to, but does create the pressure. Control the pressure, control the situation. Pressure makes people make mistakes and get careless because they don’t like pressure. If you fear pressure then you won’t perform well. That’s why to be a Champion you have to welcome pressure, perform at your best under the most pressure, and then finally create the pressure. Are you creating pressure to take you to the top today?

You can feel your negative desires and act on them, or not act on them; your self-control is what distinguishes you from everyone else.
To have the pizza or not to eat the pizza. That is the negative desire I feel right now! Yours maybe the chocolate cake, the affair, the drugs, to gossip and so on. To be an unstoppable Champion you have to be able to be in control of your negative desires. There is a Bible verse that says; God will give you the desires of your heart. I take this to mean that He will place in your heart His desires. There is no desire of God that is negative. So I have to believe that He will give you the self-control to overcome the negative desires that come to us. No Champion gives in to the negative desires. Doesn’t make a person perfect by any means. However, Champions do and don’t do what others aren’t willing to do or give into. This is one of the big reasons there are few relentless people. I believe that you are one of these people; Champion that is. Self-control is a major key to living your purpose filled life. Are you controlling your negative desires today?

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?
