"A true champion is someone who wants to make a difference, who never gives up, and who gives everything she has no matter what the circumstances are." Dot Richardson
You've been run through the ringer.
You've given your best and have still fallen short. You have laid it all on the line and have still missed the mark. You have done everything you can think of and have still lost the battle. You feel beaten, battered and bruised. And you're tired of losing in spite of your best efforts.
You start thinking, "What's the use? Why should I try any longer? Why should I keep going? What difference does it make?" And you're tempted to pack it in and call it quits.
But you don't.
"Unless you walk out into the unknown, the odds of making a profound difference are pretty low." Tom Peters
You're a winner. You're a competitor. And losing is not in your vocabulary. Neither is quitting. You know that victory is out there somewhere. That success is just around the corner. You know you have to keep looking, keep going; you have to keep scratching and clawing and fighting.
You have to make a difference. You just have to.
Making a difference is never an easy path to follow. In order to make a dent, you have to take chances. You have to make choices. You have to put yourself on the line - and risk it all. And that's scary. It's spooky. It's downright intimidating.
Making a difference takes all that you've got... and then some.
"The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful; to have it make some difference that you have lived at all." Leo Rosten
Most people never take a chance. They never take a risk. They never give life everything they've got. And they never make much of a difference.
But that's not you. You know you are designed for greatness. You know you have a date with destiny. You know you are going to make a difference... no matter what. You just know it deep down in your heart and soul.
Whatever it takes, you are willing to give it.
Wherever the journey may lead, you are ready to follow its path.
Whenever you are required to give more, be more and see more, you stand ready to answer the call.
You will not be deterred. You will not be denied. You will not accept anything less than success.
"There can be no difference anywhere that does not make a difference somewhere." William James
W. Clement Stone said, "There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. That little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative." How's your attitude right now?
Are you ready to climb the highest mountain? Are you willing to swim the deepest ocean? Are you prepared to do whatever it takes to bring your dreams to life? Are you ready to make a difference today?
Winning is not a sometime, once-in-a-while, every now and then event. It's a day-after-day success plan that encompasses everything you say, think and do. You have to believe you are going to win. You have to believe you are going to succeed. You have to be willing to persevere, push and plow your way to the top.
Don't be scared of making a mistake. Just get out there and go get it, go be it, go do it. And do it with fire. Do it with fervor. Do it with passion and purpose and determination.
And go make a difference right now.
