You can’t win by accident.

IMG_0415Being a winner is such an “on purpose” thing.  It’s a habit and a mindset.   Winning takes practice, persistence, faith and focus.  It’s not going to happen by accident. There are many people out here working very hard to ensure you don’t have accidental success.

That’s why things worth having are hard to attain.  You don’t accidentally come in first place.  People don’t accidentally complete the project.  Teams don’t accidentally win championships.  These things take concentrated effort and sacrifice.

As a boss in the middle, you have to remember that no one is going to give you anything.  You need to go hard.  You need to go wisely.

You can only trust God 100%, so keep Him first!
