2: Teach them to Win.
Winning requires practice, tact, resilience, and faith. It takes time and dugged commitment to build that which will last. We can’t afford to quit just because the task is tough. A man who truly wants to win must persevere until he achieves his desired outcome. This is the winning attitude.
Sometimes mediocrity is the outcome of overloading your faith with ventures and endeavours you have not sufficiently prepared for.
Don’t rush into things as if doing it first is the guarantee for doing it best. You can be the first, but what matters is to be the best. Without quality, you will showcase mediocrity and sabotage the success and longevity of that enterprise.
Many a time the street is noisy. Everywhere you turn something tries to call for your attention in attempt to detour you from your direction of travel. It could be opinions, fears, suggestions, accusations, or misconceptions. You must plug your ears with a filter to choose what to absorb and what to discard.
Freedom is the liberty from the opinions and prejudices of others. Someone once said, if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks at you, you may never get to your destination.
When the envious shoot uncomplimentary words, stay focused.
When the ignorant are confused by your actions, stay focused.
When temporary setbacks try to hedge you in, stay focused.
Focus will help you maximize your creativity and attain great milestones.
God determines the purpose of a thing before He permits its birth. There is no act of God’s creation that is haphazard or untimely. You were born because of your relevance to the time and seasons your life will experience on the earth. Find that relevance, develop and activate it, contribute it and influence your world for good.
You couldn’t have been born at a better time. Arise!
