Do You Want to be a Champion?

Our Weekly 2 Minute Read

Edition 64 - September 22, 2019


Most people want to become champions, until it is time to do what champions do.

Sounds familiar?

How about this one;

Most people want to become successful, until it is time to do what successful people do.

Okay those were definitely inspired by one of my favorite quotes from Eric Thomas:

“Everyone wants to be a beast, until it’s time to do what beasts do.”

This is especially true when it comes time to put in work and getting results.

At the end of the day, talk is cheap and integrity is rich. When it comes time to put in the work, have integrity and work as hard as you can to get that result.

This is especially true when life decides to throw you a curve ball. Are you able to stay the course when you don’t feel like it? Are you able to commit even when there are all the excuses in the world for you to tell yourself that it’s okay to quit today.

Just know that there will be good days and there will be bad days. Remember that things are usually never really as good as it seems, and things are never really as bad as it seems either.

So when things are good, that’s awesome. Just remember to keep doing the things that got you to that point. The moment you stop doing the things that got you there is the moment you lose.

When things are going bad, just remember that it’s never as bad as it seems. Put things in perspective. As long as there is time on the clock, the game is never over.

Peter Drucker once said, “There are two types of people in the business community: those who produce results and those who give you reasons why they didn’t.”

When talk is backed up by integrity, something amazing starts to happen. Results start to show up. When you get results with integrity, momentum is created. And when momentum starts to take its course, it seems like 80% of the problems you once had, starts to go away. It’s amazing to see when it happens.

So when life decides to push you around, that’s when the champions discover that they were champions.

And whenever you feel like you don’t want to put in the work, just remember what Muhammad Ali said, “I hated every minute of training, but I said, don’t quit, suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.”
