One team will be crowned champion of the NFL in the Super Bowl. Don’t give up on your dream. Our world, our nation, our city needs you to win. We need more Champions.
On Feb. 2, 2014, Two teams will line up and play SUPER BOWL XLVIII. After 60 minutes, one team will stand atop the world. Those 53 players, the coaches and their families will celebrate a well-earned, but short-lived victory. They will be Champions.
Last September, 32 teams started out with perfect records and lofty goals. They started with “winning the championship” in mind, to hoist the trophy, to wear the ring. Week after week the field narrowed until finally there will be two.
We might have left the “sports” dream behind, but we still want to be on a winning team. Our dreams now are the ones of LIFE. We’d love to have a winning marriage, a prosperous bank account, successful children, and great jobs. It’s our dream to drive “style” to live “large.” We desire to finish well.
Unfortunately, some of us feel more like the tail and not the head. We haven't made it to our proverbial Super Bowl. We didn't even make it to the playoffs. We may even feel like we finished dead last!
In the NFL, one team will be the champ... 31 will not. Sports leave no room at the top for two. But LIFE is different! LIFE needs more champs, more people to make it to the top, to stand on the pedestal of purpose and destiny.
Winning is the result of not quitting. Winning is knowing what is most important. Winning is understanding your own purpose and giftings. Winning is all about the right definition of success, it’s about LOVE, FAMILY, FRIENDS, and FAITH.
Don’t give up on your dream. Keep Climbing! There’s room at the TOP for you! Our world, our nation, our city needs you to win. We need more Champions.
