“Every mission constitutes a pledge of duty. Every man is bound to consecrate his every faculty to its fulfillment. He will derive his rule of action from the profound conviction of that duty.”
– William Lloyd Garrison, Journalist and a founder of the American Anti-Slavery Society
Goals are merely checkpoints on our journey that is our mission. A defined mission provides focus and determination to move forward, enduring setbacks as learning opportunities and successes as springboards. Establishing a mission creates a focus and mindset to be open to opportunities that are available to pursue our mission.
When on a mission, goals are needed, however they are merely checkpoints in this pursuit.
The mission of the Heart of the Competitor is to create the thought process within every individual that they have the ability to become the best they can be. It is about competing with yourself to become 1% better everyday. The Heart of the Competitor maintains the mindset of minuscule improvement over a long period of time, which allows greatness and excellence to be achieved.
The Heart of the Competitor is not about winning the athletic or competitive lottery; it is about a daily devotion to maintaining positive energy with focus and attention on what can be improved on a daily basis.
It is the purpose of the Heart of the Competitor daily readings to maintain the mindset of marching forward each day. This reinforcement is needed because the world around us will invade our thought process at times and provide doubt and distractions from our mission and goals. It is at these times the Heart of the Competitor is needed the most, to kick those doubts and questions out of our mind and focus on doing what we can to improve on that day.
Commitment from the heart to the mission will direct all of our work to improvement, which will lead to achievement and accomplishment.
Question of the Day:
What have you done to kick the doubts out of your mind and focus on your mission?
