Functioning Efficiently In The Pain Barrier Is What Separates Great Performers From Average Or Poor Performers

The further from the finish line you are WILLING to tolerate distress without slowing down, (no surprise here) you will emerge as the victor because your rival has not mentally conditioned themselves to take the pain.

How do you prepare yourself to deal with the pain? The number one way to deal with what is eventually going to happen, is to totally revamp your attitude and thinking concerning the pain. You are what you think, if your thoughts concerning the pain are of fear, dread, doom and gloom, you significantly reduce your chance of enduring the pain for any significant amount of time, and you SHALL be passed....not maybe....not might....not it is possible...YOU SHALL GET is inevitable! Victory and achievement involve individuals who took chances and went a little berserk in the beginning (in some cases) and did not gamble with what the competition may have brought to the event; you know not the appearance or sound of their program! Apply the above and below to everyday life, and no matter what it is you are seeking, you most certainly are setting yourself up to be worthy of receiving success!

verb: prepare; 3rd person present: prepares; past tense: prepared; past participle: prepared; gerund or present participle: preparing

1. Make something ready for use or consideration....YOURSELF!!

Synonyms: make/get ready, put together, draw up, produce, arrange, assemble, construct, compose, formulate

If the mind can conceive it, and you can believe it, then you can achieve it, if you put it all into action.....AND GET YOURSELF READY BY PUTTING TOGETHER AND FORMULATING A PLAN......YOU CAN WIN!!

Winning and Quitting

At one point or another in your life, the words in the title of this article have crossed your mind, together or separately. Going deeper than the words in this title crossing your mind, you undoubtedly have had physical encounters with both throughout your existence on this planet and the highs and lows that come with both.

What is it that triggers us to quit? We have come to a decision in one particular area that we have had enough victory and we simply want to step away and move onto something else, or we have taken so much injury and defeat and finally understand that area is not beneficial to our health, physical and mental, that it is time to give it up? Both are true!

Many winners step away from a particular sport, trade, or business at the top of their game; they have had enough and move on to other things, or simply retire and enjoy peace. Many addicts finally realize that there is no winning in their particular addiction and finally, by the grace of God understand the only way they can be victorious is to quit…they too get out, and enjoy peace.

Stand back and do an honest assessment of your situation, step outside of yourself and take a look at your life as a friend or family member would do, or even a passer by who does not even know you. How would someone other than yourself look at your life? This assessment of yourself will give you the answer to what you are and what you need to do. Are you a winner who has decided that is best to step away from the battle to enjoy peace, or are you someone who needs to quit something in order to escape a battle and begin winning and enjoy peace?

Make the decision and enjoy the peace.

This next statement will exercise the brain a bit, but there is a definite story and answer for you in the statement, you just have to analyze the statement, then put this entire article together and you will get the answer you need for your life. Winners never quit and quitters never win. What do you need to do in order to be a winner?

Are you at a point that in order to win, you have to quit?
If so, QUIT and begin winning!

Best regards and many blessings.

The Mind Of A Champion

MIKES MONDAY <span class="blsp-spelling-error" id="SPELLING_ERROR_0">MOTIVATIO</span>

The dictionary has many different definitions of a champion. Two particular definitions I find to be perfect; A champion is defined as a warrior, a person who is superior especially in sports. However you could apply this theory to anything in this life that is a desire of yours, not just sports or a actual warrior.

What is it that makes this possible you ask? How would one become superior to others, or be classified as a warrior? It is mind set; it is the absolute belief in themselves and their cause and the fact that they are bona fide risk takers. They believe they have won the battle before taking a single step. There is absolutely no possible way to gain ground in anything without taking a risk. Champions take every risk necessary in order to be victorious, they have already seen themselves with the spoils, champions take calculated risks to fill the gap between the starting point and the top step of the podium. It is easy to figure out how someone who is willing to risk time, money, physical pain and injury, to chase their dream and become the best, surrounds themselves with people of like mindset. However this does not give them the right to be cruel to others, or to look down their noses at others who have not yet obtained a particular level of success. What it does give them the right to do is to be compassionate to others and be a positive example to others who do not yet possess the championship spirit. If every champion, without fear of his trophy being taken away from him, would do everything possible to inject the champion mindset, we would have more people contributing to a solution and not a problem. A desire for our fellow human beings to succeed is a true indicator of a champion.

If you are a documented champion, please extend your hand to those who have the spark in their eye, please be the accelerant that turns that spark into a flame, and then the flame into a inferno. More champions means more positivity in this world, more positivity in this world means more success, more success means more prosperity, and more prosperity fosters a true belief that we can be victorious!

Get out of your comfort zone and grab hold of your championship. Your motivation and success could help numerous amounts of your fellow human beings become champions!


Best regards to all and may your day be blessed.

Living with Gratitude

From the very beginning most of us are taught to be thankful for things we receive and to say “thank you” acknowledging acts of kindness. But are we truly ever taught to be grateful? Do we truly understand what it means to show gratitude?

“Thank you” does not cut it; a phrase made up of two words that often times just becomes the thing to say. Being filled with gratitude is a true expression of how you live your life as a result of being given something and not taking it for granted.

This could cover many things, but in this case I am talking specifically about your life. Are you truly filled with a grateful energy in regards to the life that God has put in your chest, do you even care about it, have you ever even muttered a word of thanks to your creator?

Bottom line is this; there is nothing above God or the Lord, nothing. They sit at the ceiling of the heavens, there is nothing higher. Once we understand that they control everything in our lives, we then can truly live. Everything else on this earth, without them being above all in your life, means nothing. Your business, your money, your home, your family, your cars, etc, mean absolutely nothing, all just a façade, an illusion; your LIFE will be an illusion!

Once you begin to live your life in a way that shows God and the Lord that you are grateful for what they have given you, YOUR LIFE, only then will you understand that nothing else matters. You will then understand that life is not about what other people have or what you don’t; the houses, the cars, money, or so called looks that are appealing to society. Big deal, are all of those material things indicative of a relationship with the Creator? Absolutely not! None of what goes on in anyone else’s life matters.

There is not one possession that can do anything for or against you, they are not relevant. Ranting about things that do not matter will kill you, if you cannot see this for yourself, God will show you, and he does not care what it takes to bring you to your knees to realize that HE is above all.

God and the Lord will bring us to what ever they choose, to make us realize why we are here in the first place; to show them gratitude for all they have done for us and that they are the only ones who can do anything for us, nothing else gives us life!

Go deep and think about being grateful, and when you truly grasp the beauty of this life, don’t just thank your maker, live your life to show him that HE is above all, and I have no doubts my friends, that your life with HIM will let you enjoy what really matters; your life with HIM!

Have a blessed day!

The Silent Crime

Have you ever wondered what true silence is?

I know your mind is racing right now asking, “What kind of question is this”? Of course you know what it means to be silent, but I am going to take you to another level. The American Heritage Dictionary defines silence as this: 1. The condition or quality of being or keeping silent. 2. The absence of sound; stillness. 3. A period of time without speech or noise. 4. Refusal or failure to speak out; secrecy.

All of the above is very true and I am sure all who read this can actually feel silence, yes; I believe you can close your eyes, with no doubts at all, and actually feel it surround you and absorb the peace it brings. However, there is another definition and another side of silence that I think has been left out and I am going to address it.

From the Dictionary of Michael Daley I present to you a new definition of silence. “The biggest crime”, yes my friends you read that right, sometimes silence is the biggest crime because in certain situations, doing nothing is filled with a stillness that does not favor the well being of others.

Our duty to our fellow human beings sometimes begins with opening our mouths and articulating to someone of authority that something wrong has occurred! If we don’t speak out about something we know will help another person, then we become bystanders in this life, and our existence is filled with the wrong kind of silence, and I believe another crime has occurred.

Failing to properly handle information you have in regards to a crime only adds to the crime rate. Fearful, uncertain, and concerned for what may happen to you or what people will think of you should you speak out? All natural feelings of course, but think of it this way.... If you observed a crime being committed that no one else saw, your involvement may be the only way for it to be solved. If you don’t speak up, another crime will be committed.

We all have the right to be silent, however, look at it this way; if you remain silent in regards to a crime, and the people who may have a problem with you because you spoke out won’t even matter, they will be by the way side soon enough. However, your stillness and lack of noise will forever travel with your thoughts….you will never be able to enjoy silence ever again….. Speak up my friends!!

Best regards to all and may your day be blessed.

My journey in this life has included many stops along the way and I am sure you will be able to relate to most, if not all of what I speak of. Reflecting on my times spent at these stops has allowed me to truly grasp why I am here on this earth.

The times I was stopped or maybe I should say delayed, were times of pure struggle, never once was there a stop that provided absolute peace and tranquility, no, every stop was a struggle. Am I saying that my life has been miserable? No, not in the least, but it has stopped at times.

When we get held up by something, it is usually by something uncomfortable, depressing, sad, tragic, loss etc…etc… our forward progress and the ability to do what we truly want in this life is rarely, if ever, put on hold because of something good. These inconveniences, however not clear then, are given to us to make us better, not bitter. If we grasp that, we understand also that we become stronger and become more capable to face things later in life.

I encourage you to realize this the next time you get stopped or are delayed, put your heart into the issue at hand and know that on the other side you will be stronger. Focus on the fact that if a friend or even maybe a stranger is ever in need, chances are your additional strength will be a blessing to them.

We are all bound to face life delays, no way to avoid that, but on the journeys we take in between each of those delays, we should be cognizant of those around us that may be in need. I know why I am here, through my numerous stops filled with struggles, I have been given strength and blessed by being shown my reason for being….I am to extend the hand of hope, freedom, and the chance to provide one more day of life to my fellow human beings in any way I can.

Whether it is risking my life to save others, providing something to someone so they can get one level closer to achieving a dream, or just being kind to other people. The hand of hope takes on many forms; will you compile all the strength provided to you from your delays and stops in your life and use it for the good of others? Will you extend the hand of hope to others?

I pray that you believe it can be done, if it were not possible, I would not have been able to put these words into print, go ahead, do it, you’re strong enough!

Best regards to all and may your day be blessed!
