The Outperformer

Have you ever met a Christ follower who is also an outperformer, someone who seems to succeed despite their setbacks?

What’s their secret?

They can experience failures, setbacks, and whatever else life seems to throw their way, but they will always bounce back, each time a little stronger than before.

- They can take a licking and keep on ticking.

- They understand life is full of seasons, and every adverse season eventually comes to an end.

- They understand the landscape is always changing, so they change or get left behind.

- They don't just survive; they thrive. It’s a mentality ... a way of thinking.

Only 5% think this way.

What’s their secret? Outperformers are continuous learners.

They adapt and reinvent. They stay relevant by learning new things.

They are continuous learners comfortable in their own skin.

They are humble, grateful, and confident.

To them, a lack of knowledge is an opportunity to grow.

They don’t make excuses, blame their circumstances, their clients, their team, or the economy.

While these might be actual challenges, continuous learners refuse to be the victims of circumstances.

The opposite of the learning heart is the stubborn heart. Those who have a stubborn heart have all the excuses and reasons to fail.

Nothing’s their fault. Pride and ego hold them back. They focus on all the reasons why something can’t be done. They are angry and defend their failures instead of learning from them.

Outperformers who have reached the proverbial mountaintop realize they are standing on mountains of mistakes converted into learned success.

They are continuous learners who have gained the know-how to succeed.

Outperformers are fruitful because they have high expectations. They know who they are and whose they are.

>> Ephesians 2:10 NIV - For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

>> John 15:7-8 NIV - If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.

Anyone who is a continuous learner can become an outperformer.

Be a continuous learner, then outperform in what God created you to do.
