Our training begins by evaluating our students' financial lives and then coaching them to put their financial lives in balance. Why begin with the “Financial” component of our students' lives? Simply, yet bluntly stated, “Money is the primary competitor with God for Lordship in the lives of those who claim to believe in God.” Unless the financial component of life is in balance - and has its place, a true champion can never emerge.
We’ve all heard the expression “Knowledge is Power,” but is it? To be true champions we must guard our hearts when it comes to the Intellectual component of our lives. We were created by God and for God. We were attached to God at "the hip" so to speak. God was to be our intellect. However, when we decided to eat from the forbidden Tree of Knowledge, we separated from God, (Sin) and began using our intellects for worldly and self-gain. This was not the way God intended for us to use our intellects. They were to be used to strictly glorify God and only God. True champions understand this theory and have found their games through mental conditioning and toughness using their knowledge to benefit others which glorifies God.
True champions take care of their physical bodies. They exercise their bodies as they exercise proper nutritional choices. They then depend on their bodies to be perfect machines for their bidding. Important trait champions possess is they listen to their bodies and accept limitations when necessary. With proper training, limitations can be turned into advantages.
The social component of life will either empower or negatively impact a person. Chances are since you are talking the times to read this typically you may have been negatively impacted to some degree already. Having a nurturing social sector in life can be very important to your overall success in particular if there is an accountability component.
“Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence.”
Will you dare? Do you really want to let in years of sounds of silence that you’ve been crowding out? This is where ninety-nine percent pick up their ball and walk off the course. Drowning out of the sounds they would now hear has been protecting them for far too long. Most just can’t let go absolutely. As the saying goes, “Beginners are many but enders are few. One-Percenters do the things the Ninety-Nine Percenters don’t and enjoy things the Ninety-Nine Percenters never will.
Emotions are often confused with feelings and moods, but the three terms are not interchangeable. Emotion is defined as “a complex reaction pattern, involving experiential, behavioral and physiological elements.” Emotions are how individuals deal with matters or situations they find personally significant. Emotional experiences have three components: a subjective experience, a physiological response, and a behavioral or expressive response. Feelings arise from an emotional experience. Because a person is conscious of the experience, this is classified in the same category as hunger or pain. A feeling is the result of an emotion and may be influenced by memories, beliefs and other factors. A mood is described as “any short-lived emotional state, usually of low intensity.” Moods differ from emotions because they lack stimuli and have no clear starting point. For example, insults can trigger the emotion of anger while an angry mood may arise without apparent cause. Defining emotion is a task that is not yet complete. Many researchers are still proposing theories about what makes up our emotions, and existing theories are constantly being challenged. Still, there’s a good basis of knowledge to analyze when exploring the topic.
