Victory is not about the wins and losses. Victory is about giving everything you have and laying it out on the floor. It’s executing to the best of your ability and applying quality effort to your fullest potential. If you fail and then learn from that failure then that’s victory. Victory is not determined by stats and points. If you have to scrape yourself up off the floor because you gave it your all by doing what you were supposed to do, and the score board doesn’t go your way, then that is victory!
Remain victorious through commitment. This comes from being consistent and persistent with all the little things regardless of how hard and painful they are. If you remain committed to win, then the numbers you want will come naturally.
I was reading Proverbs 8 and what a good reminder of the excellence of wisdom.
If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened,
more strength is needed, but skill will bring success.
Even King Solomon was saying to work smarter not harder. If the knowledge is there why not use it? The only way to become skillful and wise is to put your knowledge into practice. Practice means to train, rehearse, and exercise. It does not matter what it is in life, if you rehearse it physically or mentally you are sharpening your axe. Why wait for the opportunity of need to arise when you don’t fully understand the knowledge you have gained? If you are skilled and wise, then is it really work when the opportunity of need arises? I would say not! The opportunity is your time for success!
Experience knowledge, don’t just read about it, be about it!
