Every week is a new obstacle course broken down into 7 stages called Mon, Tues, Wed, Thur, Fri, Sat, & Sun.
Your goal is to navigate all the obstacles within each day to successfully complete each of the 7 stages and put together a winning week.
But you don't want to settle for just one winning week; you want a WINNING STREAK!
Your season is made up of 52 weeks. You're striving for winning streaks (consistent wins each week) in order to put together a Championship Season.
And you're not satisfied with just one Championship Season... you want a repeat, a three-peat, a four-peat, and on and on.
You're quest is to build a Dynasty!
You're striving for thriving! A legacy of winning that inspires and impacts multitudes, but most importantly honors and glorifies the Head Coach that poured His life into you... literally His blood, sweat, and tears... and His very breath that breathed life into your lifeless nostrils. To hear Him utter the words, "Well done my good and faithful servant!"
And it all starts at the strike of midnight every week as Sunday gives birth to Monday.
No one can run your race for you. Only you can do that.
Each day presents new obstacles along with the other obstacles you've faced before. But that's part of what makes it so fun! It's a challenge!
It isn't easy. You'll lose many times on your way to your wins. That's why learning to walk as babies is the very first illustration God displays to us on how to achieve. You will fall your way to success. That drive to walk regardless of all the falls is what makes winning each stage, winning each course, and winning each season such a thrill. Winning isn't a gimme. You have to leave the bleachers and enter the course. You have to fall many times in front of the people who cheer you on as well as the do nothing critics that never leave the comfort of the stands to attempt anything worthwhile.
Each obstacle will take strategic navigation along with developing skill sets and an unconquerable attitude. But that's what you were designed for. To contend. Not for early retirement. You'll get knocked down. Gravity will always be there to assist your fall. But gravity can't keep you down. Only you can keep you down. Your very first achievement in life will remind you that all you must do is rise again. Walking lies on the other side of falling. Summon that inner relentless child in you that regardless of scrapes, bruises, and blood drops you get back up again and take another step. Your Father believes in you, but it's you that must rise again and again until you walk and then run and then strive.
Welcome to Monday. The first stage of this week's obstacle course. CRUSH IT on your way to a WINNING WEEK!
