Embrace It

The struggle, adversity, and victories are all part of the Champion’s process and we must embrace all of it.

I have never known a great person that has not been through some tough times. It’s not necessarily the adversity that makes you a Champion, the struggle exposes the greatness of a Champion. A Champion never tries to avoid the struggles and adverse situations. I have seen some that will embrace the tough times, but when success comes, they shrink away from it. Fear of success is not uncommon in many people. However as a Champion you have to embrace both the tough and good times. Be at your best at all times. Even your bad days can be good days when you learn from them. Be a learner all the time. Whatever the situation take what it is offering. A Champion must be aware what is the truth of the situation. Embrace the struggle, the adversity and the victories in life. Are you embracing them all?

Dealing With Adversity

Adversity and success are neighbors on the way to becoming a Champion, you have to have both in your life.

Some of the best advice you will ever get to be a Champion, to be unstoppable is to never, ever, never give up. When adversity is present, know that success is right behind it. All you have to do is keep on keeping on. Stay with your process. Don’t allow negative thoughts to stay in your mind. You may be going through the toughest time of your life, but don’t give up. You may be dealing with the worse adversity you have ever faced, but don’t quit today. You are not alone in your struggles. We all may have gotten here in different boats, but we in the same ship now. To be a Champion, to be relentless we need one another. Never try to do make it by yourself. I encourage you today, to stay the course. You are closer than you think you are right now. Be the Champion that you were created to be today! Are you dealing with adversity today?

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?

Success in Life

Success in life depends upon being strong, having clear goals and being unstoppable.

Unfortunately most of us aren’t born that way. We grow that way. And that growth can either come from us entering willfully into situations that will cause us to grow or from the way we react when circumstances come upon us without our consent. The latter is what we call adversity. Most of us spend our lives trying to avoid adversity, and I guess that is just as well. We shouldn’t pursue adversity, but when she arrives, we should welcome her as a foe who, though our interaction with her, will make us into better people. Every contact we have with adversity gives us again the opportunity to grow personally and professionally and to forge our character into one that will achieve much later on. Are you working with adversity today?

Panic

When everyone is hitting the “In Case of Emergency” button, they’re looking for a Champion. How you respond to adversity determines if you’re a Champion or not.

When those around you are caving in and are panicking; you remain calm and perform at a higher level. You are the one that they are looking for. You are the one that steps up to the plate and delivers more than anyone expects. A Champion does not have a panic button. There is no hysterical rant, finger pointing, head down, shoulders slumped. A Champion is poised even in the heat of battle. An unstoppable person is level headed. Champions are unstoppable and relentless because they know how to use their mental conditioning to control the physical. Champions in the physical are first Champions in the mental. They control the mind and then the mind controls the body. I see the opposite far too often. Watch those that lose it when the going gets tough. Those are the ones that are letting their mind control them and then the body follows suit. Are you in control of your mental game today? How do you respond when the ‘emergency” comes? Be the one who the others look for when the panic button is pressed. Are you a Champion today?

Be Awesome

All of us can look back at things that should have defeated us.

Maybe a divorce or bad break should have taken you down, but look — you’re still a Champion! That addiction, that partying lifestyle should have killed you, but because of you didn’t give up, you’re still standing and becoming better. Or, maybe you lost a loved one. You didn’t think you could go on. You thought you’d seen your best days, but you didn’t stop doing the word. You don’t fall apart because of a disappointment. You don’t get upset because people are talking about you. Never let circumstances cause you to give up. Be relentless today! Never, ever give up. If you’re down today get back up, don’t stay down there. Start fresh today. This is your time to be at your best. Are you ready to awesome today?

In the Dark

We all go through things in life that we don’t understand.

The dark times in our life should be used as times to grow. We all go through tough seasons in life. It is in these tough, dark times that Champions grow and develop their skill. You have to make the decision to grow when in the dark place. That’s when your character is developed; that’s when you learn to trust, to persevere, when your mental toughness is strengthen. Take a new perspective about the dark times and discover the potential inside of you that you never knew you had as you learn about the plan for your life. As you develop your inner Champion you will have to go through the tough seasons. Learning and growing seems to come during these times. Not to say that you can’t learn during the good times. However, the lessons we learn during the dark days stay with us for the rest of our life. This is a time of being planted so that you can grow. Don’t look at it as being buried. It is time for you to grow and become the relentless Champion that you are. Are you in a dark time now?

Breaking Camp

Are there some tent stakes in your life that you need to pull up so you can press forward?

Maybe you’ve stopped in a temporary place, and it’s time to keep going. Maybe you’ve gotten comfortable and decided that your dreams are never going to happen. Your health is never going to improve. I’m asking you to pack up your tent, gather up your stuff and start moving forward. You may have taken a temporary delay, but that’s okay. That didn’t stop your destiny. Today can be your new beginning. There are greater victories in front of you! Remember, the first place we lose the battle is in our own thinking. If you don’t think you can be successful, then you never will be. If you don’t think you can overcome the past, meet the right person or accomplish your dreams, then you’ll get stuck right where you are. You’ve got to change your thinking. Get rid of a negative, defeated mentality. Make room in your thinking for the new thing you are supposed to do, pull up your stakes and move on. Are you ready to break camp?
