Morning Cup of Joe – You’ve Got To Fight!


It isn’t over until it’s truly over. Don’t count yourself out before you even get into the battle. Oftentimes, we talk ourselves out of a battle before we even jump in. Citing countless reasons why we shouldn’t do something. In the same vain, you must also consider citing reasons why something may actually work. Everything is dichotomous in nature; meaning there are two ways to look at everything. There certainly are positives if you focus intently on discovering them; consider the positives.

You will never know the outcomes of the battles you don’t fight. If you choose not to fight, you’ve already lost. Understand that nothing in this world comes easily; nothing. The outcome of your battles has already been determined yet that should not prevent you from fighting as hard as you can. The fact that you are still living simply means that you are on the winning end of the battle. It also means that, to date, no problem has claimed your life and thus has made you stronger.

Your primary goal each and every day should be to never quit. Quitting is not nor should it ever be an option for you. First, understand and commit to memory the fact that you were born to win. There is no such thing as an insurmountable battle. No matter how hard it seems and will become at times, you cannot quit. No matter how difficult the battle appears, you cannot quit. Even if it looks like you are going to lose, you cannot quit. Your reward is waiting at the finish-line and you cannot claim any rewards if you don’t finish. Be a finisher.

The only way you’ll know if you can truly win a battle is if you make it to the end. No matter how long and arduous the journey may seem, you must focus on the end result. Do not fear defeat, focus intently on the finish-line and you will win every time.

You can win and you will win; simply because there are no other options for you.

Morning Cup of Joe – Will Not Be Defeated


One defeat does not determine a persons potential nor does it determine how high they have the ability to rise. Oftentimes we place more emphasis and power on a loss rather than a win primarily because of our natural reaction to both events. We respond and react to a loss with a mental attitude of the sky is falling or the world is ending. That is a typical reaction to a loss. Although your reaction can be typical, your goal should be to ensure that it’s temporary.

What matters after you’ve failed or fallen short of your goal(s) is that you get back up again. Figure out why you failed, analyze the reasons and make the necessary adjustments to secure a victory moving forward. Maintain the understanding that failure is an event and it is not a person. Just because you experience failure doesn’t necessarily make you one.

A loss of any kind can certainly be devastating; I know. What is even more devastating after you’ve experienced a loss is if you choose to wallow in your sorrow and marinate on the loss. Thinking about a loss never created a win. If you want to win, you have to be determined to win. You have to do whatever it takes in your power to create and produce your desired outcomes.

Do you want to win or are you satisfied with losing?
