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?

Have you been facing a mountain for so long that you feel like you are just sort of stuck there?
Maybe at one time you knew you would break that addiction. You knew you would beat that sickness. You knew you would get married. But, you’ve gone through disappointments. It didn’t happen the way you thought. It’s time to move forward. There are new levels in front of you, new opportunities, new relationships, promotions, breakthroughs. But, you’ve got to stir up your fire. You’ve got to get a vision for victory. The dreams, the promises that you’ve pushed down and thought, “Oh, it’s not going to happen. I’m too old. I don’t have the connections. I don’t know the right people,” If you will start believing again, start dreaming again, start pursuing what is in your heart. Press past the mountain and move forward into victory. Are you believing in your dream today?

No matter how good you are, you will face disappointments.
It may be something simple like not getting a promotion you hoped for, or not closing a business deal you worked so hard on. Maybe you didn’t qualify for a house you really wanted, or maybe something more serious happened like a relationship not working out, the death of a loved one, or some kind of illness in your body. Whatever it may be, the reality is that we’re all going to suffer some setbacks. No matter what has happened, one of the main keys to overcoming disappointments is learning to let go of the past. If you feel “stuck” today, you may want to examine what you’re holding on to. Be willing let go of past disappointments by choosing forgiveness. Who hurt you? Who did you wrong? Release it. Do you need to forgive yourself? Do you need to receive forgiveness? Let go of the past so you can overcome disappointments and experience the your full purpose and destiny.There is freedom in forgetting! Have you forgiven and forgot it?

Too many people today have settled for “good enough.”
They’ve lost their passion and just sort of go through the motions of everyday life. At one time, they had a big dream. They were excited about the future, but they hit some bumps along the way. Something didn’t happen on their timetable. Now they’ve gotten discouraged, thinking that it’s never going to happen. They accept it as their lot in life. Don’t let that be you! Just because you haven’t seen it yet doesn’t mean that it’s not going to happen. Don’t make the mistake of settling for good enough! Good enough is not your destiny. You are a Champion. You have greatness on the inside. You were created to be excellent, Start believing again. Start dreaming again. Start pursuing what God put in your heart. Stir up the fire within you and don’t settle for good enough! Have you settled today?

Love negative people because they make you positive.
When someone is negative I make it a point to find the positive. If they are talking about something negative I take the challenge to discover the positive side. Negative people drain the energy out of those they are around. Rather than letting the negativity drain you love them. Learn to appreciate them. They make you be even more positive. By their being negative it makes us want to be even that much more positive. It won’t always be easy or fun, but it is a refreshing way to deal with them. In time they may also see how you live and actually start to become more positive. Not everyone will but some just might. No matter what though, always find the positive side of every situation. Step back and have a positive perspective. Your life will be better and so will the lives of those you come into contact. Be the thermostat and not the thermometer. Set the standard for the room. Bring a positive environment to light. Are you loving negative people today?

Love the struggle because it makes you appreciate your accomplishments.
I have never known a Champion that has not been through some tough times. We all face struggles in our life but only those that are unstoppable make it through. The average person gives up and quits when they are facing difficult situations. A Champion welcomes the struggle because it makes the rewards of winning that much sweeter. The average never get to experience the love of winning on a day-to-day basis. Find a way to overcome the struggle and move on the next struggle that’s coming your way. Be relentless in the middle of the tough days. Don’t ever give up. Be the Champion that you know you are. Are you loving the struggle?

Our purpose is greater than our challenges.
I could not write anymore and enough would have been said. In your life you will face some serious challenges but know that your purpose is far greater. Always know that your purpose will be defined by your challenges. Many think that once they have discovered their purpose they won’t have challenges. Nothing could be farther from the truth. When you discover your purpose you will see an increase in your challenges. Welcome the challenges that come your way. Learn how to overcome them. You will gain in your destiny and purpose each time you come up against a challenge in life. To be a Champion you will have to know your purpose in higher than any challenge. No challenge that comes up against you will be able to stop you because you are unstoppable. A relentless person will attack the challenge until they have won. It’s time to get serious about your purpose. What is your purpose?

Negative thoughts are the nails that build a prison of failure.
When you allow your mind to focus on the negative you will begin to fail at things that you used to succeed at. Never let your mind wander to the negative perspective. As a Champion you must focus on the positive side of the situation. This is especially true when it comes to thoughts about yourself. Always be positive in your self talk and thoughts. There are many people that have gotten so accustomed to negative thought patterns that they think that’s the norm. This is not true. No matter the situation there is a positive perspective. To be unstoppable you can’t be a negative thinker. You have to develop a positive mindset. Relentless competitors have the mental toughness to maintain a positive outlook at all times. Train your mind to stay in the positive thought pattern. You will see your failures turn into successes when you do. What is your thought pattern today?

We all face situations where the odds are against us.
We don’t see how we could get well, how a relationship could be restored, how we could ever break an addiction. In our mind, it all seems impossible. It’s easy to just accept it and think, “This is my lot in life.” You may suffer a temporary setback, a disappointment or an unfair situation; but if you’ll keep moving forward, it won’t be permanent. What you’re facing may seem bigger, stronger and more powerful, but deep down, don’t be intimidated. Know that you have a Champion’s heart and mind. You have what it takes to be the difference maker in that situation. You are not a victim but rather a victor. You are stronger than you may realize. You have been created for this specific time and specific situation. Don’t ever back down or give up! Be unstoppable and relentless today! Take care of the situation and be a problem solver. Are you ready to face the situations in your life today?

An umpire calls the players safe or out. We have an internal umpire, so to speak, calling the plays and giving us direction.
Before you ever make a decision, you should stop and see if you have peace inside. If there’s unrest or an uneasy feeling inside, then don’t move forward. Let peace be your umpire. How many people get into a relationship that they didn’t have peace about and end up miserable? They buy things they didn’t have peace about. They end up in debt. They take a job they didn’t have peace about. They end up frustrated. Here’s the key: If you don’t have peace before you make the decision, you’re not going to have peace after you make the decision. If you don’t have peace about that person now, you’re not going to have peace if you get into relationship. If you don’t have peace about buying that new car, you’re not going to have peace when the payments come each month. Let peace in your heart be your umpire and settle any questions you have in your mind. Do you have peace today?
