Winning by Deciding to Win

Wining by Deciding to Win is not only a decision, but a commitment and challenge.


“Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.”–Wilma Rudolph

In Winning by deciding to Win it is important to remember that what you think, you eat.This is a good reason to feed on the Word of God. Real winners allow their hearts to draw near to God, Himself, and as a by-product they receive His promises deep within themselves.

“Winning isn’t everything, but the will to win is everything.”–Vince Lombardi



Guidelines for Deciding to Win:


1. Always Control Impulsiveness.

It’s important never to make a permanent decision in regards to a temporary situation.

2. Beware of Blind Spots.

Never allow your emotions to drive your decisions toward destruction.

3. Be Sure To Delegate with Confidence.

Always surround yourself with people who are wise and competent. Allow them to perform without becoming intimidated by their expertise.

4. Make it a Habit of considering all the options, then accept all responsibility for your final decision.

Stop, Look, and Listen to wise counsel, but be sure to sift it through your heart and pray for guidance before any final conclusions are made.

5. Never, Ever go to War where there are no spoils.

It’s important to choose your battles wisely and you must be assured that what you are fighting for is worth the price you will have to pay.

6. Acquire Accurate Information.

Get all the facts necessary before deciding a course of action. Conjecture will inevitably lead to some sort of crisis.

7. Take Time to Contemplate the Consequences.

Make sure you consider all options and their possible results before any action is taken.

8. Take Calculated Risks.

Never allow your expectations to exceed the practical potentials and realities of your resources. Hope for the best possible outcome or solution, yet be prepared for a loss.

9. Always be Cost-Effective with Your Time.

If your ‘return’ is not greater than the ‘investment,’ then the endeavor is not worth your time.

10. Survival: Survive in order to thrive.

Be sure to allow yourself a 10 percent ratio to be wrong, a 50 percent likelihood of betrayal, and a 100 percent commitment to survive it all.



“What winning is to me is not giving up, is no matter what’s thrown at me, I can take it. And I can keep going.”–Patrick Swayze

Like a stone skipped across the smooth, glassy surface pf a beautiful, clear lake, each decision that we make initiates multiple ripples.

“Faith without Works is dead.”–James 2:20

These guidelines will help you with your challenge of Deciding to Win. Winning will be more attainable when you are not on an aimless journey.
