A Winning Mindset | Winning

Vince Lombardi said, “Winning is not a sometime thing, it’s an all time thing.  You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time.  Winning is a habit.  Unfortunately, so is losing.”

The difference between the winners and the losers are the habits they develop.  Winners not only do the right things, they do things right.

Don’t be your own worst enemy!

The other day a friend reminded me of an old saying that goes, “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.”

Most of us have seen this in sports, where a less talented team outworks and outplays an athletically more talented team.  Hard work has beaten talent many times, when talent just didn’t work very hard.

Hard work is more important than talent!

If you want to go fast go alone. If you want to go far, go together. | Together

The greatest teams are those whose team members, give, sacrifice, and play for each other.  This is true not just in sports, but in business, family, and life.

All the teams in your life will greatly improve with teamwork.  And not only will the team function better, but each person has a better chance of reaching their individual goals. 

Wishbone or backbone? | courage

Are you someone who has a wishbone instead of a backbone?

Ronald Regan said, “Many a good man has failed because he has had his wishbone where his backbone should have been.”

Go for the Gold!

Watching the Olympic games over the past couple of weeks, I’m reminded that years of discipline, sacrifice, and determination come down to one moment.  All the pain that an athlete endures in training and preparing comes down to that one moment in the spotlight.

The level of preparation is insane.  Every hour of sleep is calculated, every ounce of food is measured, every pound in the weight room is carefully weighed out to bring about the best results possible. 

The Change You Really Want

How many times have you identified something in your life you want to change, but failed to actually make that change?

Maybe you’ve wanted to change the time you wake up each day, or the time you go to bed, or you’ve wanted to change your spending habits, or eating habits.   Maybe you’ve wanted to start a workout program.

The inability to change a habit can be frustrating and defeating.

“Dream Big! Don’t put limits on what’s possible.”

The story is told of Walt Disney completing Disneyland in California, and then wanting to do something similar on the east coast.  So he began building Disney World in Florida, but he passed away before it was finished.  Walt’s brother, Roy, took over the project and saw it to completion.

“Whether you think you can, or you can’t, you’re right.”

Your thinking determines everything about the quality of your life. The way you think about yourself, and what you are capable of, will become your reality.

It was Henry Ford who said, “Whether you think you can or your can’t, you’re right.”

“You’re Worth It!”

This past week I had the privilege of being the speaker at a youth camp, and after one of the services a young lady asked if she could talk to me.  We sat down in the back of the chapel and I asked her how I could help her.

With her head down, she softly said, “I just don’t feel like I’m worth it.”  She went on to tell me how other students picked on her, and she didn’t feel like she was worth anything.
