The Winning Blog: A weekly Blog dedicated to teaching people everywhere how to Win in life. We break life down into four different categories: Relationships, Career, Health and Wealth.
I’ve spoken to thousands of youth and adults over the past 5 years about how to Win in life. In my talks, I’ve discovered thousands of principles that help us Win. One of the most important principles I teach is the “POWER of BELIEF.”
How many times have you heard stories from extremely successful people that referenced a life altering negative experience? This experience may have been shaped by negative words they encountered in their youth from a teacher or parent, telling them they would never be anything in life. I'm sure you've heard these stories time and time again. Their life begins to reflect the negative prophesy spoken over them; until someone came and spoke a new word of HOPE, LOVE, and BELIEF.
These new words usually inspired them to dream or see a new truth about themselves. It’s interesting to me how amazing the human brain and psyche is. Our brain is so powerful that it can literally trap us or free us! Our brains can easily paralyze us or unbelievably LAUNCH US! So if we are to Win in life, we must first BELIEVE that we can. We must BELIEVE that in us lies the tools and skills needed in order to achieve in this life. We must BELIEVE if we are to ACHIEVE. I often say BELIEF unlocks the door to possibility in our lives. It gives us access to greatness. There’s nothing more heartbreaking than talking to an urban youth who has never been told he or she could succeed their entire life. No matter how many times they were given an opportunity to Win, little or no effort was put forth on their end. This reality frustrated me until I began to understand that negativity had truly encaged them. They were so encaged, they couldn’t see beyond it. In that moment of revelation, I realized I had to remove the “cage” before asking them try to remove it themselves. The cage of unbelief must be removed before Winning can even be seen. After I helped them remove their cage, they began to move towards achievement; not because achievement suddenly appeared, but because they now could see it. Today I challenge you to remove the cage of unbelief and receive a new word, WINNER. Believe that you are a WINNER today and you’ll be one step closer to achieving this outcome in your life.
