Having a Victor’s Mentality

victors mentality

When we look into the Bible, we see that Paul went through lots of hard times.  How did he come through?  He came through amazingly well through it all and he found God on the other end.  During all of Paul’s trials, he wasn’t complaining, living in self-pity or despair.  Paul shook off any defeated mindset he might have been feeling and he chose to have a vision of victory instead.  Paul had a victor’s mentality.

What was Paul’s secret?  Paul knew he would be victorious because he knew he had God on his side.  God can’t be defeated so Paul knew that if he was on God’s side, that he could not be defeated either.

That is what we need to do as well.  We need to have a victor’s mentality just like Paul did.  Let’s use Paul’s example of how we can choose to react to trials we face in our own lives.

Paul writes to us in several books of the New Testament and gives us a great example of how we should live our lives.  I am particularly fond of this verse that Paul wrote in the book of Romans:

Romans 8:37 (NIV)

37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

You are not a weak.  You are not lacking.  The most powerful force in the universe is behind you and loves you and wants nothing more than to help you.  Each and every morning, you need to take a minute to remind yourself of this.  Wake up each morning and tell yourself this:

“I am ready for and equal to anything that comes my way.  I am full of can-do power.”

That sickness you have is no match for you.  That relationship issue is not going to keep you from your destiny.  The loss of that loved one did not stop the plan God has for your life.  When life gets tough and trials come, as they always do, don’t let it overwhelm you.  You can handle it.  You’ve been armed with strength from the most powerful God.

My challenge to you is to keep a victor’s mentality in everything you do because a victor’s mentality becomes a victor’s reality.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
