Responding to Adversity

How do you respond to adversity?

The way you handle adversities has a huge impact on your success in life? If you shrink back, choose to get bitter and lose your drive, then you are allowing the difficulties of life to bury you. You are allowing hardship to keep you from your God-given destiny. But if you choose to keep pressing forward with a smile on your face, even in the hard times, you are allowing your character to be developed inside of you. You are setting yourself up for success. Think about this: the only difference between a piece of black coal and a priceless diamond is the amount of pressure that it’s endured. When you stand strong in the trials and difficulties in life, when you shape and mold your character, it’s like going from a piece of coal to a priceless diamond. Those difficulties are going to give way to new growth, new potential, new talent, new friendships, new opportunities, new vision. You’re going to see your life grow in ways that you’ve never even dreamed! How do you respond to adversity?

Ceilings and Floors

Champions don’t worry about hitting the ceiling or the floor. There is no ceiling. There is no floor.

When you are striving to be unstoppable you don’t think about a ceiling or a floor. A Champion focuses on getting better each day. You never focus on the destination, but rather the journey. You will know when you have arrived and then you keep going. Being a Champion at what you do is a lifestyle not a goal. There will be goals along the way, but they are not the end. Goals are only mile markers along the way. You keep moving even if it looks like you have bottomed out or you have hit the ceiling. Those only exist in the lives of those that desire to be average. I encourage you to keep up the fight to be the greatest. Never let up in your process. If you have questions about how to be your best let me know. We are in this together! Be great today! Are you ready to be your best today?

Inner Alarm

Do you ever feel an inner “alarm” going off when you know you shouldn’t be doing something?

As soon as we feel that uneasiness, we need to stop and evaluate what’s going on. Too often, people override that feeling thinking they’ll sort it out later, but then they have to deal with things that they could have avoided. The time to respond is the time when you sense the alarm. You may be in the middle of a conversation and the alarm goes off. You know you’re supposed to walk away. Don’t ignore it. Or, you’re about to purchase something. You’re about to make some plans and you feel that check, that uneasiness, that alarm. That’s not random. If you will learn to listen, you can stay away from trouble. Don’t ignore it and make life more difficult; instead, quickly obey. Don’t override the alarms. Are you listening to the alarms today?

Words Are Seeds

Words are seeds. What are you planting in people?

There was a report about children who had been bullied in school. It talked about how years later, those negative words were still having an effect on many of them. They interviewed this one man. He was in his 40’s. He looked to be a bright, intelligent man, but he had not been able to hold down a good job, struggled in his relationships, and couldn’t seem to get on course. He said as a child, he was overweight. He was chubby, and some of the other children made fun of him and called him names like “loser” and “failure.” He made the mistake of letting those words take root. Now they were keeping him in mediocrity. When somebody calls you something, either good or bad, that seed is planted in your mind. Now 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 that we’re disciplined in our thought life. It’s great when people tell you, “You’re blessed. You’re talented. You’re going to do great things.” Meditate on those throughout the day. Water those seeds and watch the truth become your reality. What seeds are you planting today?

Present Over the Past

The present is more important than the past.

Oftentimes we allow our past to negatively affect our present and future. However, your past should be a teacher that pushes you toward your purpose and destiny in life. We all have made mistakes and bad decisions. Learn from those and use it to make a better today and tomorrow for yourself and those around you. Your past should never disqualify your destiny but rather it qualifies you to be the difference. Whether you try to disqualify yourself or others attempt to do so, push forward. Take what you can from days and years gone by and use it to form your process for becoming the Champion you were created to be. There are so many others that are going through what you have been through that need your help; your advice. You are the difference in their life. Being relentless means forgiving yourself for what has happened in your life. You can do this! You are a Champion! Are you ready to use your past to make a better tomorrow?

Just the Truth

Truth is more important than facts.

Facts change all the time. Truth is always true. Doctor reports, bank statements, relationships, all are subject to change. Facts are not stable. Truth will never fail you. As a Champion you have to base your decisions on the truth, not facts. Facts can look attractive, but they are very deceiving. If you desire to be unstoppable then you will rely solely on the truth every time. When others are looking and basing their decisions on facts, you are the one who is different and going with truth. This is what sets you apart from the rest. You don’t go with what is comfortable you go with the truth, even when hurts. The pain of truth is far less then the pain of regret by going with the facts. Learn to go past the facts and go for the truth. Do the work necessary to uncover the truth about your situation. Are you going after the truth today?

Support Team

By surrounding yourself with people who believe in you, you will be able to count on their support when you are struggling.

Everyone has seasons of life where they struggle, even Champions. However, a Champion knows that before the season of struggle, you surround yourself with those people that believe in you. You know that you can count on them when things are going bad. This group will be a small intimate team of people. They are the ones that no matter how bad it gets you can always depend on them. They support you in the good times, but even more so during the bad. In order for you to have these people on your team, you have to be on someone’s support team too. Being relentless means you are relentless in your support of another person. You stop at nothing to be there for them. Being a Champion doesn’t mean you are all alone and it’s lonely at the top. If it’s lonely then you won’t be there long. Each of us needs all of us. Again, your team may be small but nevertheless it is a group of people in your inner circle. Who is on your support team today?

Your Focus

Focus on what you want to have happen, not what you want to avoid.

You will gravitate toward what you are focusing on. Keep your eyes on what you desire to happen. To many times we start looking at the negative, that thing we don’t want to have happen. Then what happens? The negative thing we were not wanting to see come to fruition. Keep your thoughts and your energy headed toward the positive, that desired outcome. Keep moving toward the goal you have set. Negative thoughts will bog your mind down and not give you the energy you need to accomplish your destiny. By keeping your mind de-cluttered you will be able to handle adversity easier mentally. Keep your vision clear and concise to be unstoppable. You have enough to deal with without having the added stress of negativity. Are you focused on what you want to have happen today?

Motivated

When you look inward, ask yourself why you do what you do and what your mission is, you can find a motivation that can’t be created any other way.

You have a purpose, a mission for your life. Don’t let the issues, the day-to-day grind of life stop you from accomplishing your mission. I encourage you to take a good look at your life and determine to life it to the fullest. Make every effort to fulfill your destiny. You have been given a gift, even before your birth, use that gift. There is something that you do, that no one else on the planet can do just like you. When you do this, you will find the inner motivation to do this. You will need to be motivated each day. Being unstoppable is not easy, therefore, motivation is a key part. Too much depends on you fulfilling you being the person you were created to be. You are a valuable person, never let anyone tell you otherwise. Find the motivation to be a Champion, the difference maker. Have you found the motivation to accomplish your purpose?

Every Difficulty

One thing we have to realize is that we wont be delivered from every difficulty.

We aren’t going to be removed from every challenge. If we did, we would never grow. When you’re in a tough time, that’s an opportunity for your character to shine. Anybody can get negative and bitter, blame others, or lose their passion. That’s easy. But if you want to pass the test, if you want to go to a new level, you cannot be a weakling. You’ve got to be a warrior. Dig your heels in and say, “I can handle it. I’m ready for it. I’m equal to it.” Use the difficult times to reveal the Champion in you. Tough times call for people that are unstoppable and relentless. This is you! Show your competition who you are today. When others are looking for a way out, you are finding a way to finish and win. You are a Champion in all times. How are you handling the difficulties in life today?
