Winning Is A Choice

January 31, 2016

Winning is a choice you make.

Winning isn’t easy, winning is a choice. A choice to make sacrifices, a choice to work harder than the rest, a choice to not accept anything other than winning.

Far too often I hear people talk about successful people as if they’ve just been handed their success.

  • They were one of the lucky ones
  • They come from a successful family
  • They were born into money
  • Their parents gave them everything

Sound familiar?

Truth is, majority of the truly successful people have come from nothing. This is what tends to make them more successful. When you’ve hit rock bottom you’ve got nothing to lose so you apply yourself a lot more than someone who has just had everything handed to them all their lives. Fair enough, those people will have money and possibly fame, but that doesn’t mean they’re successful.

I believe true success is when you’ve built something for yourself. And in turn you can pass your knowledge and wisdom on to others so they can also become successful. Whatever you do, don’t mix having lots of money with being successful. Yes, making money is an added bonus but true success is about happiness, and I believe happiness comes from helping others. Actually witnessing real life transformations, witnessing others who have been in similar walks as you, transforming themselves so they too can live in happiness. This cycle of helping others, who will in turn help others, who will help others, is my definition of success.

So you see, winning is a choice my friends.

And the truth is.

Every single day YOU have a choice:

a) you can wake up, decide this will be your day and choose to WIN at life.

OR

b) go about doing what you do every day, complaining you don’t like your life, but not making any effort to WIN.

Our human nature causes us to constantly make excuses.

  • I don’t have enough time
  • I can’t afford to start right now
  • I won’t know what I’m doing
  • I’m not sure it’s right for me

And so on and so forth. We’ve all heard them. We’ve all made them.

Truth is, most of these excuses come from a fear of the unknown.

Maybe you’re scared of failing. Maybe you’re scared of people judging you. Whatever it is that’s scaring you, once you change your mindset and realise fear is a good thing, your life can completely transform.

Fear means you’re leaving your comfort zone. Fear means you’re chasing something you don’t yet have. Fear means you care strongly enough about something and you’re willing to do anything to get it. Fear is just entering the unknown and chasing your dreams.

Once you realise this, another shift will happen.

You’ll start to realise winning is a choice. You’ll start to realise you’ve got no reason to be fearful.

You’ll start to believe in yourself more. Little by little, your daily habits will start to change and you’ll be edging closer and closer to your dream lifestyle, and you’ll start to wonder what you were ever so afraid of.

All you need to do is take that first step. Don’t expect to be at the top of the staircase. Realise success takes effort and you can win. You just have to be willing to work for it. You have to be willing to understand what you want and ask the universe for it. You have to be willing to do what it takes to have it delivered to you. You have to have the will to WIN!

The universe believes in you. The people around you believe in you. I believe in you.

The question is…

Do YOU believe in YOU???

If you’re living in fear. STOP!

If you’re living in self-doubt. STOP!

If you’re unhappy with your current circumstances. STOP!

Decide what you want. Tell the universe what you want. Make it happen.

Winning is a choice, and it’s YOUR choice.

Make the choice to WIN.

Today is your day. Go get it.

If you need any help staying motivated I’d love to be the person to help you.

Much Love.

    After I originally commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me
    when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is
    added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there a way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks!

    Hi Joni,

    Doesn’t appear to be any way I can do this. May be something you need to click from your own login?

    Thanks for some other informative site. Where else could
    I get that kind of info written in such an ideal way?
    I’ve a challenge that I am simply now working on, and I have been at the
    look out for such information.

    Hi Pete.

    Glad you find it informative. I’m not really sure. This is information I thought about after listening to a range of different audios and reading a lot of books. Something I’ve been pondering for a while and seemed like the right time to write about it. Didn’t really look to any other sites for information sorry.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images
    and clips, this blog could certainly be one of the greatest in its
    niche. Great blog!

    Hi Gloria,
    Thanks so much for the feedback. Awesome you think this could be that good. 🙂
    I played around with graphics and giphs etc in a lot of my earlier posts but found they distracted from the content.
    I’ll definitely keep it in mind though. I guess I was trying to go more informative so stopped using images as much but definitely a good point.
    Thanks again. 🙂

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your site.
    It appears as if some of the text on your content are running off
    the screen. Can someone else please comment and
    let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Thank you

    Hi Stanton,

    Thanks for the heads up.

    It all looks fine on my screen (I’m using a mac) and I’ve checked on my phone as well so hopefully it’s ok.

    If others are having issues would love to know.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this web site is
    loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is
    it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later on and see
    if the problem still exists.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced
    but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web
    without my permission. Do you know any solutions to help stop content from being ripped off?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Hi Shellie,

    That’s a real shame – I haven’t really noticed anyone copying anything of mine so far so haven’t really looked into it.

    But I just did a quick search and found this article you might find useful – http://www.blogtipsntricks.com/2014/07/protect-your-blog-from-being-copied.html

    Hope that helps. 🙂

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say
    this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good hosting
    provider at a honest price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
