**Call Forth the Winner in You!

Posted on 10 March, 2019 at 22:10

When you think of a winner, what comes to mind?

What do you see in your minds eye when you 'see' a winner?

What does a winner look like in your mind?

One author wrote that “a winner is someone who accepts a win or a loss with the same temperament”. That is one definition I can definitely celebrate as truth.

Proverbs 11:30 says “the fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who is wise wins souls”. In essence, the concept of winning is not entrenched in how many things you gain, but HOW you live your life, based on what God directs in His Word. In order to embrace the winning mindset, you must be able to see your value and worth through the lens of God’s grace OVER your life instead of the things that happen IN your life. Winning is a mindset – how you see yourself – how you value what you bring to the table – how you feel about your impact in this world.

Winners focus on seeing the glass as half full before it begins to be empty (Story of Joseph). They focus on the positives of a situation before they moan about the negatives (Isaiah 61:3). They don’t see defeat as the end of the road; it’s just a temporary setback to a potential momentous comeback (Nehemiah 8:10). They realize and look forward to the sun coming up every morning instead of cursing the darkness (Psalm 30:5). They disconnect from anyone who can take them out of peace, out of the path of purpose, and down the path of degradation (2 Timothy 3:1-4:22). They stand in full confidence that no matter the situation, God has their back because they live as God directs (1 Thessalonians 5:16). Statistics tells us we have an average of 50,000 thoughts a day. A winner has more positive thoughts than negative (Philippians 4:8-9); a loser’s auto-response is negative, which drives their existence further into the pit of despair and negativity.

Winners reject the prospect of settling for those things in life that take away from the joy of living (2 Corinthians 5:5-6). They refuse to embrace defeat or any failed effort in a goal as their personal failure (James 1:2). Instead they take the failed effort, learn from it, grow from it, and position for success the next time (Romans 5:3-5). When the negative Nancy’s and naysayers tell them what they can’t do, won’t do, or would be crazy to do; winners stand in the authority that they have been given by the God they serve to say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). They realize that when things go haywire, they are not in the battle alone and every battle has a purpose; God shields and covers them (Jeremiah 29:11). Winners stand with bold confidence and courage, seeking to bring the best of themselves to every encounter, every situation, and every interaction because they stand on the foundation of Christ (2 Thessalonians 3:3-5). It’s in that mindset that winners never give up on themselves and their goals because they know their God has not given them the spirit of fear or failure (2 Timothy 1:7).

Oftentimes we set goals, verbalize something that we want to see manifest in our lives, and then fail to move to make the goal a reality. Fear, doubt, procrastination, and fear immobilizes us; or we allow the time elements of life to hinder forward movement. When the goal does not manifest, the easiest fall back is to blame whoever we can, wherever we can; or we fall into self-blame mode. All of which is the mindset of a loser, not a winner.

The reality is we will never achieve any set goal or dream, if we can't see yourself as a winner first. You must be able to see yourself achieving the goal before the goal becomes your reality. You must be able to see yourself achieving that goals or desire that God has placed in your spirit. Now, let me make this clear…some goals are never achieved because it’s a selfish goal you have set for yourself without consulting, praying, and seeking God’s nod of approval. In other words…it ain’t for you to achieve. But if you believe in your spirit that the goals you have set are goals that God ordains for your purpose and destiny, stand boldly on it. God’s got you covered.

Hebrews 11:1 says 'now faith' is the substance of things hoped for, evidence of things not seen. That means, you have to believe and see success before you live it. So, how do you see you? Do you know you are meant to achieve that thing you say you want to achieve? Do you see yourself walking the path you say you desire? Each time you think of a goal you want to achieve, close your eyes and literally see yourself achieving the goal. Then begin to talk and act as if it is already done. Stop complaining about it, whining about it, and allowing negativity to spew from your lips about it. Even when you don't see it; now faith believes that it is already done!

A noted motivator wrote that “you were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously.” It’s up to you to position yourself to call forth the winner in you, and make your desires your reality and live your destiny!
