Sunday Inspiration: Three types of people

31 Aug

“Dream big dreams; only big dreams have the power to move men’s souls.” – Marcus Aurelius

Big dreams drive us to do things we’d never do for lesser dreams — in many ways they almost pull us through the obstacles we’re likely to have on the way to reaching them. Having a specific meaning and purpose in your life helps to encourage you towards living a fulfilling and inspired life.

In his book The Psychology of Winning, Denis Waitley says there are three types of people involved in the game of life:

First, there are the spectators. These are the majority of people. They avoid trying anything new or desirable for fear of being hurt, defeated, ridiculed, or rejected. They spend their lives watching life happen on television. Most of all, these spectators fear winning. Winning brings burden of responsibility for being a good role and setting a good example. Brian Tracy says “People who have no goals are doomed forever to work for people who do.”

Next are the losers. They prefer to be like or act like someone else. They spend their time criticizing and nitpicking others.

Finally, there are the winners. They are the few who seem to effortlessly acquire what they want from life.

It is your personal responsibility, and yours alone, to actively invest the time, study, and effort needed to learn as much about your brain, self-image, and self-talk as possible. Doing so will put you above the rest of the people that remain passive in regards to their life. By studying principles of World Class Achievers, you will learn “secrets” that will help you gain control over your thoughts, over your goals, and ultimately over your life!

So let me ask you. What type of person are you right now in the game of life? Are you a spectator, a loser, or a winner? And if you say a winner, is that obvious to other people who are observing your life and the fruit of your life?

If you’re not a winner currently, how long do you think it would take for you to become one if you had the right environment and right coach? 3 months, 6 months, a year? And what might your life look like if you were a winner?

Blessings to dream big dreams and have a winner attitude!

There is tremendous power in a testimony. “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” – Revelations 12:11
