Monday Morning Motivation – Win

By: Curt Stowers

Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement—along with a good cup of coffee!—to start the day.

Hopefully the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week.  Please feel free to forward the newsletter on to others that you think would benefit from the content.


This past week saw the US Women’s National team claim back-to-back World Cup Titles with a win against the Netherlands.

On the sports field, winning is 100% clear. Each sport has its rules, and the victor is easy to identify. While ties are a possibility during the regular season, the championships are structured to identify a single winner.

However, when we get off the sports field, winning becomes a bit trickier. Is it the one who ends up with the most money? The biggest house? The best-looking spouse? Or, is it the one who grows most in their faith? The one who embraces time with their family? The one who develops the deepest relationships with their friends and family?

The lens we use to evaluate how we define what it means to win is huge in how we decide to pursue life.

That brings us to this week’s question:

  • What does it mean to you to win?

Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning 

Have a great week!
