Champions do things differently than those who are average. Champions FIND A WAY to win! Champions do not accept mediocrity because they know that mediocrity is the enemy of becoming a champion.
JP Morgan, one of wealthiest men in American history, exemplified this so very poignantly. Already a millionaire, Morgan set out to make his mark on America by becoming synonymous with an industry. In his efforts, he drew the ire of his father who thought that the industry in which he placed his desire would only become a fad.
The younger Morgan, choosing to FIND A WAY, ignored the advice of his father and hired a young telegraph boy turned inventor to help him in his endeavors. While his own father, as well as other very reputable and well thought of people, questioned him and his efforts, Morgan FOUND A WAY!
The same is true today. Champions FIND A WAY! They are scrappy. They are creative. They are determined to FIND A WAY to win. Currently, the Florida State football team exemplifies this. Several times this year, they have found themselves in a deficit, yet they keep finding a way to win! Why? Because they are the reigning National Champions, and champions FIND A WAY to win!
Finally, as champions are finding a way to win, they often experience criticism, skepticism, and negativism from others around them. It happened to JP Morgan. It is happening now to Florida State, and it will happen to you when you make the choice to be scrappy, be creative, and be determined to FIND A WAY! Oh, by the way, that little industry that Morgan’s father thought was a fad and wouldn’t last: electricity. You never know which student in your group of ministry will be the one whose life drastically impacts others! FIND A WAY!!!
