With so many people in the world telling us we can’t succeed, we need to hear people telling us we can.
Too often we think it’s our role to inject a dose of “reality” into someone’s life. We think it’s our job to protect people from the pain of failure and defeat. We think we must point out how bad the economy is and how horrible the job market is and how the sky is falling. We think that dreams were meant for others. I say there are enough pessimists and “realists” in the world. The world doesn’t need more negativity and impossible thinkers. The world needs more optimists, encouragers, and inspirers. The world needs more people to speak into the hearts of others and say “I believe in you.” “Follow your passion and live your purpose.” “If you have the desire then you also have the power to make it happen.” “Keep working hard.” “You’re improving and getting better. Keep it up.” “The economy is tough but you can still grow your business.” “The job market is not great but I believe you’ll find the right job for you.” “We’ve hit a lot of obstacles but we’ll get the project finished.” “Even if you fail it will lead to something even better.” “You’re learning and growing.” I encourage you today to encourage someone during your day. Are you encouraging others?

If you get to a place where your thoughts are concrete, simple, and focused, and you take deliberate action, then your thoughts become reality.
Transforming something in your life whether it’s your attitude, mindset, financial situation or bringing change into a relationship can seem like an overwhelming task. But as the old saying goes, “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” The way you change your life is one thought at a time. Your thoughts set the direction of your life. If you need to change the direction you are headed, you simply need to change your thoughts in that area. When a thought comes to your mind that “you’re never going to get well; this is your lot in life,” don’t dwell on that. Don’t sit around and have a pity party. No, immediately reject it and replace it with the truth. I encourage you to be aggressive in taking every single thought and making it stand in truth. Stay determined, stay focused and keep stating the truth because you can change your life, one thought at a time. Are you shaping your thoughts by the truth today?

You can’t commit to excellence until your mind is ready to take you there.
Teach the mind to teach the body. Excellence is not a given for us. For you to have excellence you have to make it a mindset and a way of life. For you to have excellence in your life you will have to take responsibility for your actions. No more blaming your past, your parents, your weaknesses for where you are in life. For excellence to be your lifestyle you will have to break away from the normal, from average, from getting by. Excellence as a lifestyle will cause you to make changes in your thinking and your actions. You will have a paradigm shift toward excellence. We aren’t created with that excellence mindset but it has to be a decision. Being mediocre, average, or just getting by is the lifestyle that is comfortable and the norm. Being excellent in your life is a conscious decision that you have to make and carry out. You were created with the ability for an excellent life but you have to do your part. You can have inner excellence in your life beginning today. Make the decision to do your best in everything you do, then go do just that. Excellence and integrity will take you way far in your destiny and purpose. You will never go wrong when you choose excellence. Are you ready to make inner excellence your lifestyle today?

No matter what you want for yourself, your ultimate power source will come from the neck up, not the neck down.
Our thinking will determine if we change the way we act on the outside. On the other hand, when we just go through the motions without changing the way we think, there will be no lasting change. If you have been wanting and desiring to make changes in your life; start with your thought life. Our thought life will determine if we fail or succeed. We have to get our mind right, and then the body will follow. Change does take mental discipline; which a lot of folk today don’t seem to have, but you do. You have the potential to be a Champion. You have a sharp, strong, good mind that is disciplined. Make up your mind to make up your mind. Today you will take authority of your thought process and thought life. Today is your day to begin making the changes to take you to your destiny. Ready to control your mindset today?

If you’re serious about going where you’ve never been, pushing higher and farther, it’s time to trust the voice inside to be unstoppable.
We all have that inner voice that pushes us forward. We also have one that tells us that we can’t make it. Which one do you listen to? The one you feed the most is the one that will speak the loudest. To be unstoppable you have to completely shut out the other voice. Don’t let it continue to talk to you. Today it’s time to trust the relentless, unstoppable, Champion voice that is speaking to you. Unfortunately not everyone listens to this voice. If you are going to be your very best, however, you have to listen to the voice that refuses to let you give up. There is too much for you to accomplish to even consider giving up. I understand that you may be going through a tough season in your life. All the more reason to step up your game. Put in the work and time to be the absolute best, to be unstoppable. You will never regret the effort you put into being your best. You would regret not putting in time and listening to the inner voice that encourages you to be unstoppable. Which voice are you listening to today?

Champions don’t have to show you who’s in charge–everyone already knows.
The person that refuses to give up, is relentless is the one that will be in charge. They may not start out in charge, but in time they will be. The people that are unstoppable always make their way to the top. Some take longer than others, but they make it and then they stay there. They don’t go around telling everyone how great they are and how that they run the show. Champions let their actions do the majority of the talking. When it’s time to talk they talk. Most of the time, though, they let what they do speak for them. Watch those that are Champions in what you do. Learn from them. A true Champion will take the time to help you on becoming the best. They know it’s not all about them, but how they can help others. Being the best at whatever you do will mean you will be the one in charge one day. So learn today how to be humble and great at the same time. Are you ready to be in charge today?

Champions rarely congratulate you for doing your job; they just expect you to do it.
If you are a Champion you don’t hand out “you showed up” trophies. Relentless people expect you to do what you are supposed to do and to do it at your best. A Champion will not tolerate someone that takes plays off, doesn’t try to make every sell, doesn’t study their best for every test. Champion mindset is that if they are doing their absolute best every day; then you should too. It’s not about talent, it’s about the effort. It doesn’t take talent to show up and be unstoppable. It’s a mental thing more than a physical thing. So there is no excuse for you or me not to show up every day and be the best at what we do. Being relentless no more your talent level. Not looking for someone to tell you ‘good job’ when you do your job. You have Champion ability inside you. Today is your day to step up and be that Champion. Are you ready to dominate the day?

Champions make the competition study them; they don’t care what they are facing, they know they can handle anything.
If you are a true Champion you don’t study the opposition; you make your opposition study you. You set the standard that everyone else is trying to reach. You know that no matter comes your way, you can handle it and be successful. You were created to be awesome and it’s time to go to the next level. There will be adversity that you will have to face. Don’t try to avoid it, but go through it. You own this! Be careful that you don’t settle for second best. It’s not easy being relentless and unstoppable. If it were then everyone would be. It’s not talent, but a choice. You have to be mentally tough enough to handle it. Don’t let another day go by without getting better. 2016 will be your best year ever and then you will do even better next year and the next. Are you ready to be able to handle anything?

Do you have behaviors in your life that you want to change?
Maybe it’s a habit, a bad attitude, or even negative thoughts. No matter what you may want to change in your life, you have to start by changing your mind. You have to change your thinking so that your thoughts are in line with the truth. Remember, your life will go in the direction of your thoughts. You can’t just allow any old thought or image to play in your mind. You have to choose right thoughts. The easiest way to change your thoughts is by speaking the truth. When you say “orange,” you probably won’t start thinking about an apple. So line your thoughts up with your destiny. Your purpose in life is dependent on your thoughts and words. Stay positive. Stay strong. Stay at it. Don’t ever allow your thoughts to stop you from going higher. Are your behaviors helping or hurting you today?

A Champion can’t even define success because they keep raising the bar on what that means.
Records where meant to be broken. What at one time was supposed to be success is now not even average. That is because those that are unstoppable keep changing the definition of success. To be the greatest of the greatest you have to keep raising the bar. You are never satisfied where you are at. When you become content and satisfied then you will not stay at the top for very long. I encourage you today to keep striving to be your best. Don’t compete against others but rather compete against yourself. When you find your true north, your purpose, your reason for being you will never have another boring, wasted, timing killing day. You will crave the end result of what you are doing. Keep raising your own personal bar. Being a Champion will mean you have to be relentless in your pursuit of being the best. Today you will change the definition of success in whatever it is you do. Are you ready to raise the bar?
