Morning Cup of Joe – August 12, 2011

Never let them see you sweat.

Our natural physical reaction to pressure of any kind is to sweat. No one should know what is going on in your life just by looking at you. Do not be mistaken. I am not saying to suppress your feelings; I am merely saying do not give those who doubt you the satisfaction of knowing that you are unsure about your inevitable success. Especially when its 4th and inches and everything’s on the line, this is when you should remain as poised as possible visualizing the end results. A First Down.

No worthwhile win ever came easily. In the poem “The man who thinks he can”, Walter Wintle shares the secret to ultimate success; “Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man. In the end, the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.” There are countless David vs. Goliath stories to reference in order to support the previous claim. I want you to focus on the Goliath you are currently battling. You too will be victorious if you continue to battle until the end. Keep Fighting.

Even if you are nervous, uncertain or fearful of the outcome of your battle, I urge you to keep fighting. Quitting should not be an option for you. When you feel like giving up, remember why you got into the battle in the first place. No one ever enters a battle expecting to lose and neither should you.

To The Top!

  1. I can honestly say that this is my testamonial! You are right on the money! Thanks for the feeding “brother.”

  2. Wow! You know you hear countless stories, messages, and sermons on conquering and overcoming your battles. On some occasions it really marinates and provokes change, on others it simply falls on “rocky ground”. Joe this was really good, you have been blessed with the ability and gift of delivering words and information in a manner that causes people to want to listen and actually change. Very happy and proud of you!! “You aint seen nothing yet”!

    1. Ms. Stephens,
      I am so blessed to know that my words have reached you. Thank you for your kind and timeless words; I receive them with open arms. You are absolutely correct, You ain’t seen nothing yet!
      To The Top!

  3. I second and third this Mr. Paul! I’ve experienced much more happiness in life when I simply speak as though I’ve already hit my peak success…

    I’ve pretty much eliminated phrases like “I’m going to…” “I want to…” “I should be…”

    I start my sentences with “I AM…” It’s self-fulfilling prophecy.

  4. What a powerful message for ME today! I must admit today I am not there. The realization That my best, my dedication and commitment to excellence resulted in a plan of betrayal. I am processing this most recent occurrence and all I felt is belittled, angry, frustrated and confused. I didn’t lose it 🙂 I just couldn’t being myself to mingle or ask anyone how their summer went or laugh at jokes. It was indeed painful. The place you speak of is a place of peace. I must regain my own. From there I can move forward. Say a prayer.

    1. K. Blue,
      Understand that you are in control. You said it yourself, you must regain your own peace. The best way to do it is to start today. We can not control nor influence the past, we must only learn and move forward. I challenge you to give your best, your dedication and commitment to excellence again and watch what happens. The lessons you needed to learn the first should hopefully be learned. If so, lets start working. You have already won.
      Blessings,
      Joe Paul

  5. Getting there through prayer, silence & retraining the mind to think & mouth to speak positively over the situation. It did confirm that my time is expiring where I am. This means I must position myself For the next phase. Thanks for the encouraging words.
