Just recently the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia ended and the many winners were awarded either a gold, silver, or bronze medal. Interestingly, while most people who observed these great athletes would typically associate passionate, practice, perseverance, a never-quit attitude, and many other key attributes with their path to success, I realized something significant that I believe most people overlooked. Winners are quitters.
They identify the self-limiting thinking and behaviors that stifle their growth, development, and prosperity and then resolve to repent, i.e. turn and go in a new direction. Quitting will lead to winning when you quit the right things. Not quitting certain things keeps you in a "doom loop" that has no ending and on-going frustrations.
In the case of the Olympians, they quit eating unhealthy food, being lazy, avoiding hard work, wasting time, doing anything that didn't get them closer to their goals, and the list could go on. Well neither you nor I are an Olympian, but we are champions who God has called to succeed in our game of life.
