One of the ways to snap out of the thought of defeat, failure and rejection is to stuff your mind with positive thoughts and also to confess who God has ordained you to become in life. Thinking lightly of what you can achieve would undermine your drive and zeal to pursue your dreams. Unsuccessful allow what others say about them to keep them from trying their hands and living out their goals. On top of this, they keep God out of the equation and fail to build their hopes on His promises for their lives. Hence, they sell themselves short and shortchange themselves of the bliss of accomplishment. It goes without saying that if you want to emerge a champion, you must think success, see yourself as a success, discover the success secrets of legends, brainstorm with God on how to lead a live of success, step up to the plate and allow God to inspire and endorse your effort with success. And never think you can achieve success under your own steam without making most use of God's grace to succeed.

Also, if you want to live a life of a champion, you must see yourself as a star and a superstar who the world is waiting for. Seeing yourself as a nonentity will kill your confidence in shining the light of God in you. But seeing yourself as a star will stir up the confidence to reach for the star and shine in the midst of darkness and opposition. The word of the Lord to you is to arise and shine, because God's glory is already risen upon you. The devil may want to belittle you but when you understand that you have been made the light of the world, you need to come out of your comfort zone and out of obscurity to make show-stopping impact. Hence, don't allow the devil to keep you out of the spotlight through the instruments of fear and discouragement.

Finally, a champion sees himself as the standard of excellence. When the Bible says that God has made you an eternal excellence and the joy of many generations, it actually meant that you are a global champion ordained to champion the transformation of lives and destinies. However, to become a standard of excellence, you need to live up to the responsibility. It requires you to abandon yourself to hardwork, diligence and commitment to God. It also requires you to model a life of excellence, which God has ordained for you to become. Are you nursing the thought of failure or terrified by the accomplishment of others around you, thinking how you can measure up? What should be of interest to you is how to live out God's purpose for your life. And to get off the starting block, see yourself as a success, a star and a standard of excellence and give up yourself to diligence while appropriating God's grace to pursue what He has ordained for your life.
