Today’s perspective: the ownership of being a winner.
Having many goals is a good thing. It inspires our competitive natures. What gets us in trouble is trying to accomplish too many things at the same time.
With all goals, short-term or long-term, clear definitions of the results you’re aiming for is most important because it keeps you from running in circles, which is exhausting.
Without personal ambitions, we become despondent to the point that we feel no need to even run at all. Spiritual sloth is deadly to the inner core, literally. Although depression is a real thing and not a lie, it still deceives our priceless value and robs us of our victories.
- Do I have a clear understanding of what I’m trying to accomplish?
- What are the results I am seeking?
Challenge: Provide a futuristic view of what the results of your current goals look like as past accomplishments. Today – make adjustments to your priorities to see your future accomplishments materialize to how you saw them in the past tense.
Sovereignty fosters Victory
The Apostle Paul’s reflection on ‘regal endurance’:
1Co 9:25 Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we, an imperishable.
1Co 9:26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air.
1Co 9:27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
