Winners Never Quit….Are You A Winner
22 July 2019 Blog
Here is some motivation for us this monday.Over the course of our lifetime, we’ll all face situations that test our will, defy our determination, and challenge our character. Remember, even if life were a bed of roses, you’d still need to avoid the thorns.
Yet, even though our personal limits may be challenged, defeat should never be accepted as an option. Of course, that’s easier said than done –– we’re all human. Often it’s so much easier to cheat “just this one time” or to give up entirely. Who will know? Answer: You will.
The fact still remains that the difference between a winner and an also-ran isn’t always that the loser fell on hard times. Rather, the difference often lies in how the adversity was faced. While some people stare tough times right in the eye, others are quick to surrender to a challenge. Which one are you?
Are You Ready to Meet the Challenge?Then It is time to Believe in Yourself
Are you ready to be the winner you are destined to be then you are up to the test…. What challenges are you dealing with now?Although it isn’t the first time you’ve faced a challenge like this, your body reacts the same way as before. It’s like a physical and emotional tidal wave that slams into you. Your palms get sweaty, your heart starts pounding, your blood pressure starts rushing, and an adrenaline rush kicks in. “Come on,” you say to yourself, “I’ve experienced this before.” The million-dollar question is, are you going to face the test or throw in the towel?
Okay. If you’re really serious this time, promise yourself that you won’t quit. Nomatterwhat.
Don’t let others tell you that you can’t. What do they know? Don’t succumb to the broad-based statistics. So you need a job? It doesn’t matter what the national employment statistics say –– you only need one job. Don’t use other people as a crutch. Believe in yourself. You can do it. And please don’t think your challenge is going to be easy. It won’t be. If you set realistic expectations and follow a systematic process from the start, you can do it. You can win out over challenges that you face. Here’s how:
- First, try to break BIG challenges into bite-size pieces. They won’t seem as overwhelming and you can focus your energies rather than getting spread too thin.
- Then, rather than setting a long-term goal for yourself, create ambitious yet achievable, short-term milestones –– quick short-term wins will keep you motivated. Make sure you celebrate every win. Don’t spend your time complaining, worrying, or finding excuses. All that amounts to is wasted energy.
- And stop focusing on whether you’ve hit your goal. Instead, focus and measure all the positive activity and energy that you’re generating. The fact is, if you’re moving in the right direction, you’re one step closer to your goal.
