You Are A Champion | Live Like It

I’m sitting here enjoying the fact that today marks SEVEN YEARS since I started Stay Boosted. While I am in a positive mindset I’ve got a lot of negativity today holding me back.  Between missing my Dad and a lot of emotional roller coaster rides waiting for the process to be finished to publish my first book “Stay Boosted | The Life Book” a collection of some of the more popular blog posts from Stay Boosted along with some added content that I’ve been working on for a while.

But, regardless of where I am in life I’ve found one thing that has been a constant.  “I am a Champion”

Believe it or not … You Are Too!!

See, the thing we never realize, especially as Christians, is we were created for greatness.  There is a Bible verse that most people lose sight of.  “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13. I know there are people out there who do not believe in the mindset that God can give you the power to excel in all you do.  But to those people I have to say, If you start the game of life each day believing that you will lose … YOU WILL LOSE!

With the recent passing of the G.O.A.T. “Muhammad Ali” I feel like I wouldn’t be doing anyone justice if I didn’t showcase the mindset he possessed.

“I’ll show you how great I am”

In boxing just like life you have to believe that you are a champion.  It is not the easiest thing to do, but, if you believe you can do anything, YOU CAN!

I say that lightly, if you want to believe you can jump off of the top of a skyscraper and survive, you are in for a brief moment of being wrong.  What I want to put across to everyone is that you have to have a winners mentality. You can’t let anything get in your way of you reaching your dreams.

The winning “Greatness” mindset that Ali had was best showcased by a quote he had said in his prime.

I’m so fast that last night I turned off the light switch in my hotel room and was in the bed before the room was dark.       ~Muhammad Ali

The thing that made this stick in my mind so much is I truly think that he believed that.

You can go through history and find so many stories of people who kept the winners mindset even when they are down.  Most recent example? Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers! Down 3-1 in the “NBA FINALS” and against all odds they were able to come back and snag the the Championship.

We are all champions and once you break through and truly believe it, there is nothing anyone can do to stop you.

In closing I want to say one more thing…

When it comes to success, whether you are talking about business or life, there is always a way to reach your goal.  It all starts with the proper mindset & an amazing support circle.  If you do not have a support circle then please keep in mind “You are only as strong as your weakest link”.  Surround yourself with people who are successful and who will support you in your journey! If you can’t find anyone, shoot me a message I’ll be glad to walk with you!

That being said,

I am a Christian #lovenothate

I am a Christian, at least based on my understanding of what a Christian is; a person who has received Christian baptism or is a believer in Jesus Christ and his teachings. (Definition pulled from Google instant answer. For a more biblical answer to what being a Christian is, I found an amazing blog post) But, because most people’s understanding “definition” is so generic, it is allowing people to build a foundation around a word or phrase, rather than a specific belief system and way of life(or The Word)! As I say “belief system” I am talking about the belief that we are saved by the sacrifice of Jesus.
I feel the term “Christian” is being over-used by people who aren’t willing to live their life by the guidelines left for us.

OK, so I just sat down and watched “Bucket List”, a great movie and a must watch if you ask me!

But, while watching it I started thinking.  Not that I need a bucket list, but living life to the fullest every single day, that is living! So I think it is time that we all make a promise to each other!

There is nothing in the world that we may want to do that we can’t.  We just have to find a way!

How to be happy…

The “creed” in the video and below are both a bit different but both are powerful in words and I strongly suggest you watch the video above and read the words below.

The Champions Creed

I will conquer what has never been conquered,
Defeat will not be in my creed.
I will believe where all those before me have doubted.
I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor and respect of my team.
I have trained my mind and now my body will follow.

Who am I? I am a champion!

A Daughters Letter Home

Dear Mom and Dad:

It has now been three months since I left for college. I have been remiss in writing and I am very sorry for the thoughtlessness in not having written before. I will bring you up-to-date now, but before you read on, please sit down. You are not going to read any further unless you are sitting down. Okay?

Well, then, I am getting along pretty well now. The skull fracture and the concussion I got when I jumped out of the window of my dormitory when it caught fire shortly after my arrival are pretty well healed now. I only spent two weeks in the hospital, and now I can see almost normally and only get those sick headaches one a day.

Sound familiar yet?  (Don’t worry I’m in this field and I’m sure 95% of us are) Read More
