Winning is having the ability to hang on after others have given up and let go.
We are on the winning side and cannot lose. “Lo, I am with you always” makes ultimate defeat impossible.
“Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to win is.”
Vincent T. Lombardi (1913-1970), American professional football coach.
Interesting but true: If you assign a value to the corresponding letter of the alphabet, where A=1, B=2, C=3, etcetera, the word ‘ATTITUDE’, when you add up the value of each letter, equates to a value of 100. There is a great simile here: If we are to have the right attitude in life, that’s what we need to do; give ‘it’ (whatever it is) 100%.
A = 1
T = 20
T = 20
I = 9
T = 20
U = 21
D = 4
E = 5
Total = 100%
“Big shots are just little shots who kept on shooting.”

“I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 3:14 NIV
“Encourage one another daily” (Hebrews 3:13). We are to encourage one another daily, to persevere and hold firmly till the end. My daughter, Kim, is an artist and she has depicted the Christian life in a picture, as a tug of war between light and darkness or good and evil. On one side of the rope there are evil, grotesque-looking, demons: big, strong and menacing they seem easily able to overwhelm their opponents. On the other side of the rope the Christians appear puny in comparison; small, weak, struggling and sweating under the strain; no match for the stronger opponents. But, then, as you follow the line to the end of the rope on the Christian side, there is a huge finger holding the end securely! Friends, we are on the winning side! Be encouraged, persevere and hold firmly till the end.
R. Ian Seymour
“I would rather lose in a cause that will ultimately succeed than succeed in one that will ultimately fail.”
You’ll always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
