"Winning isn't everything, it' the only thing." Those words spoken
by the great football coach, Vince Lombardi sum up the mindset of every
champion. Lombardi, the quintessential winner, led the Green Bay Packers to win
six divisional championships, five NFL championships, and the first two Super
Bowls, in just eight years. When he walked onto the playing field, he was there
for one reason - to be victorious. His sole objective, his primary purpose,
never wavered. He was in the game to win.
Winning is not achieved by chance. Winning is a habit. Successful individuals
have acquired habits, adopted attitudes, and embraced principles that have
brought them triumphantly to the winner's circle. There are essential qualities
or attributes that winners share in common.
In this hard-hitting, no-nonsense series, Mark explores the art of
winning. You will be challenged, inspired and motivated to put these principles
to work in your life. The Bible says, "Whatever your hand finds to do, do
it with all of your might." As Coach Lombardi put it, "... sacrifice,
perseverance, competitive drive, selflessness and respect for authority is the
price that each and every one of us must pay to achieve any goal that is
worthwhile. The object is to win, fairly, squarely, by the rules - but to
win!" If you are going to play the game, play for victory! Pursue the win!
