LeaderAchievers know that positivity and patient self-control does far more good than negativity.

As a talent scout for God – I listen to what people say:

  • Are they generally positive or negative?
  • Do they have the hope of God in their heart and words – or do they expect the worst is coming over the hill?

In my early days as an amateur boxer, one thing I learned during a match was to listen to the encouraging words from my coach and tune out the negative words from the audience.

My coach always told me 2 things:

If you are going to win you have to

  • Be patient
  • And wait for the right moment

This made the difference between winning and losing a fight.  You might lose the first round but you can win the fight!

The Word of God supports this advice:  “So prepare your minds for action and exercise self-control. Put all your hope in the gracious salvation that will come to you when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world” (1 Peter 1:13).

Think, pray, be patient for the right moment!
