Imagine That

Your imagination is extremely powerful.

You are a visual being. Choosing the right images in your mind’s eye is important because your life will move in the direction of your most dominant thoughts. The way you see yourself in your mind’s eye, over time, will drop down into your heart and become your reality. If you’ll create a picture in your imagination of you being a Champion, unstoppable, and relentless, then your life will move in that direction. Every morning, you should wake up and picture yourself succeeding; picture yourself healthy and successful; picture yourself and your family not only being blessed, but being a bigger blessing to others. If you’ll keep the right images in front of you and work your process, you’ll see yourself the way you should. How do you see yourself today?

Amazing

Most of us think, “There’s nothing amazing about me.

Nothing wonderful. I’m just average. I’m just ordinary.” No, the fact is there is nothing at all ordinary about you! You have a fingerprint that nobody else has. There will never be another you. Even if you have a twin, they don’t have your same personality, your same goals, or your same fingerprints. You are an original. . When you say, “I am wonderful, I am attractive, I am awesome, I am a Champion,” not only does strength, purpose and success start coming your way, but on the inside rises up. Your self-image begins to improve, and you start carrying yourself like you’re someone special. You no longer drag through the day feeling inferior. You have that spring in your step, that “go after it” attitude. Be the Champion you were designed to be today. Be the difference in someone’s life. Do you believe you are amazing?

Control Issues

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?

Routines

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?

Challenges of Life

We’ve all had seasons when the challenges of life feel overwhelming.

During those times, it’s tempting to talk about how bad things are. Maybe you received a bad medical report, or maybe you’re facing a financial situation. But the more you talk about something, the bigger it becomes in your mind. Instead, you’ve got to dig your heels in and say, “No, I am not going to give life to that defeat. I am not going to speak sickness over myself. I’m not going to speak lack. I’m not going to speak fear. I’m choosing a different report. I believe the truth about my life. I am a Champion. I am relentless. I am unstoppable!” Remember, even if you don’t see how things could ever work out, don’t quit. You’ve got to speak to those situations in your life. You got this! Start today speaking the Champion truth about your life. Take charge of your destiny. You only have one shot in your life, make it count. What are you speaking over your life today?

Your Past and Future

What’s happened in your past is not nearly as important as what is in your future.

Where you’re going is much more significant than where you’ve been. But if you stay focused on the past, you’ll get stuck where you are. This is the reason a lot of people don’t have joy or enthusiasm for life. They’re dragging around all of this negative baggage from the past. Somebody offended them last week, and they’ve got that stuffed in their resentment bag. Last month, they lost their temper and said some things they shouldn’t have. They’ve got that in their guilt and condemnation bag. Ten years ago, they lost a friend. They still don’t understand it. They’ve got that hurt and pain in their disappointment bag. They carry around their bag of regrets, all the things they wished they would have done differently. Life is too short to live that way. Learn to travel light. Every morning when you first get up, forgive the people that did you wrong the day before. Forgive your spouse for what they said. At the start of the day, let go of the disappointments, the setbacks from yesterday. Start every morning fresh and new. You were not designed to carry around all that baggage. Let it go and move forward. Are you ready to let go of the baggage?

Repetition

Repetition alone doesn’t bring rewards; it is the quality of preparation thats brings quality performance.

You can do something over and over again, but if you are doing it wrong, it will always be wrong. The quality of your repetitions is what will take you to the next level. Take the time to get it right. The only short cut is to get it right the first time and then keep repeating the process. Most people aren’t going to put in the time and hard work of quality preparation. They measure once and have to go look for another piece of wood when they cut wrong. Making sure your preparation is of the highest quality will assure that you don’t have to stop and go looking. Make sure there is excellence in all that you do. Being a Champion takes Champion-like preparation. No one said being unstoppable would be easy. It’s not easy, but worth the work that you put into become the best at what you do. Is your preparation of Championship quality?
