My parents always told me I was a champion. I was fortunate to have such godly parents who spoke positively to me. That made me well up inside and just feel confident at whatever I set my hand to with their support.
I love what Vince Lombardi says;
"I think you’ve got to pay a price for anything that’s worthwhile, and success is paying the price. You’ve got to pay the price to win, you’ve got to pay the price to stay on top, and you’ve to to pay the price to get there."
I can just see him saying that to his football team. Wow--won't that will get you fired up!
You know you are a champion when all hell comes against you, when people are talking about you and taking you down, and you still act like a champion. When you hit the wall and fail, you must remember you are champion material no matter what.
In my new book, “Winning the Game of Life”, I talk about my family story and how our business started from the ground up. We were an average family with the same goals and dreams as any other family. We wanted to pay our bills and go on a vacation each year. We wanted to be used and make our mark in life. Dad wanted to make a difference. But, it just seemed every where we turned life hit us and hit us hard. People laughed at my dad’s dream of building a college but we just kept going. We knew we were champions. Even on the days when we ran out of food, we still were champions. Now, don’t get me wrong, there were days when we did not look like champions, but we had to dig deep down to find our champion heart.
Proverbs 23:7 says, “Whatsoever a man thinketh, so is he." That is so true. You have to believe you are a champion. And sooner rather than later, you will see it before your eyes.
Remember you are a champion in the making. We all have not made it but we are all striving to make our mark to be a champion in life.
