To Be A Winner

If we want to be a winner, then we have to stop thinking like we are the victim. If we want to achieve great things then we have to stop thinking small. Let’s take charge and be responsible for the choices we make.

It’s one thing when someone accomplishes something, but isn’t it better when a team achieves something together and everyone can celebrate? Talent may win games, but teamwork and team play win championships. A person may be a superstar but when the team does not win, the personal victory is not meaningful.

“A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skille to accomplish his goals.” ~Larry Bird

Rise and Grind

Wake up early and make things happen. Rise and shine, rise and grind. Be kind. Be honest. The next day, do the same thing. Wash, rinse, repeat!

This is what gets me to produce positive results. And when they come, I stay humble. Pray and always fill your mind with good vibes. Then repeat the process. Routine is key to a disciplined life.

In our quest for personal excellence, the most important question is how do I BECOME better, not just ACCOMPLISH things better.

The journey for improvement is not elegant as most people think them to be. It is the consistent sticking to a set of personal disciplines that forms the process of improvement until progress becomes the natural outflow of the effort. The process is more important than the product.

No Excuses

When faced with a difficult situation we can either find a way, make a way but we definitely should not create an excuse. We will never profit from the experience.

We do not succeed all the time but we can always profit by learning from it. Do not loose the lesson even if you lose.

It is better to err on the side of action. This way we can make adjustments. Where there is action there would be movement and adjustments. But when we commit an error on the side of inaction, then we achieve nothing and tend to make excuses. This would be a failure with no redeeming value.

Nobody will care about excuses. Nobody will pity procrastinating. Nobody’s gonna cuddle someone who’s lazy. Its your ass. You move it.

Energy Vampires

People are always unavailable for people who are constantly complaining and angry all the time. It’s not that they are insensitive, it is simply because their energy are zapped and their beauty is uglified by all that negativity. Put on a smile on your face and be an encourager instead. The world opens up to you in terms of friendship and opportunities.

Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and the thinkers. But most of all surround yourself with those who see greatness within you.

Some people equate the worth of a person with the work he or she produces. That is all so wrong. You are worth so much not because of what you do but because of what Christ has done for you on the cross. This is why only Christ gives intrinsic worth. No need to feel sorry for yourself. You are worth so much in the eyes of The One who have His life for you.

The Right Company

Hang out with people who force you to level up. We normally do not like them but we need them. And then there are people we need to disappoint. These are the people who want to see us fail. Instead of expending time and energy in anger and bitterness, channel the same into being excellent to prove them wrong. As we succeed… just be quiet. Thank God for His mercy. And let success announce the results for us.

People who are wise are not necessarily silent people. But they have determined when the right time it is to be. The not so wise do not have this skill. They just open their mouths and a lot of useless things begin to flow out of it. We need to develop skilful communication and to be careful with every word we say.

Know this for a fact. Only a few people in our life really care. The others are just curious. So if we have to live our life concerned with what other people say or do, then we would not be happy. Just do what is right and stick to it.

Two Lines

There are two lines that merit our careful consideration. The starting line and the finish line. Starting something is easy and most manage that part just fine. Finishing well is more challenging and demands diligence and responsibility. Anyone can commit to do something but it takes a committed person to actually get it done.

Faithfulness can’t be measured at the starting line but becomes obvious to all at the finish line. So replace good intentions with meaningful action and stick to it until you finish well. This applies to work, business and most importantly in relationships.

Don’t stop when you’re tired, stop when you’re done.

Let’s Hustle

Many people I know lose, but they get into the fight again. Others have been maligned and laughed at but they focus on their goals and move on. Then success is achieved. Success is never static. You do not “arrive” at success. You move. You hustle. You learn, relearn and unlearn and you seek continuous personal development. Let’s give it our best shot

We’ve been fighting and hustling and, well, have achieved a considerable amount of success, this does not make us survivors, this makes us warriors. And our battle scars would prove it. They are badges of honour. But we have to stay humble and to share our blessings with others. Let’s continue to learn and achieve greater things and help others achieve it too. Never get to the point of saying, “Well, we’ve arrived! So we can now live in merry abandonment.” This will lead to failure.

Training Not Trying

Let’s change the words and say, “I am training to be successful.” You and I need to convert our dreams to reality by putting in the work of learning and doing. There is a difference between training to do something and trying to do something. Big difference.

Don’t wish to become better. Train to become better. Instead of saying “I am trying to be successful”, say “I am training to be successful.” Formal education can earn you a living, but self-education will make you a fortune.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough we must do.

“I hated every minute of training, but I said, don’t quit! Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.” ~Muhammad Ali
