Creating a winning mentality is not just by wishful thinking. It is not just reading articles, books or watching videos that could ginger you. It is certainly beyond that. It is not enough dreaming about being a winner when in the actual sense there is no action to back it up. Before you can create a winning mentality you have to change your spirituality. I mean, not just believing in your heart but praying for it, asking God to give you the winning spirit and do what people say you cannot do.
Unless you are for God you cannot be ready for good. If you live a life of mediocrity you will soon become a mediocre. At this point, don’t settle for less.
Any time I watch a hundred metres dash. I just ask myself a question, ”why must the umpire shout, ‘on your marks, get set,’ before the gun is fired into the air?” I am not particularly excited to see what happens at the end. I am practically interested in what happens before the race.
Now look at the point where the winner is predicted. Any time you watch an athlete, the first thing he does is to look at the finishing line. His whole strength is willed on getting to his destination. The second thing is that he moves his body energetically and stands akimbo weighing the world on his shoulders. The third is to look at the other contestants and tell himself, ‘I am already a winner’. Believe me this is where the winner emerges.
The winning mentality starts from your spirit not from your heart. Your spirit must agree with your heart. The question is, what do you want to win?
We desire to win all the time. I may not know what you want to win but I can assure you winning souls for Christ is the greatest. Anything you win does not make heaven to rejoice but winning a soul makes heaven to rejoice. Hmmm, I hope you got that.
Proverbs 11:30 says:
The fruit of righteousness is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise.
