So far, I
have told you a story about an Australian journalist who lost a court case in
Then I shared with you the story that my customer told me about his prize-winning Hot Rod.
In one of
the stories a man walks out of court feeling like a loser.
In the second story a man buys a Hot Rod and becomes a winner.
There is a
common thread in both of the stories.
The man who won the Hot Rod competition had to enter his car in the competition and wait for the judges to decide whether his Hot Rod was better than all the other Hot Rods.
Remember, Hot Rods are judged on their appearance not on how fast they go.
So it is up to the judges to decide which Hot Rod is the best looking one.
Sometimes this is hard to measure and the judges personal preferences are important.
The main point I want to make is this.
IF THE COURT RULES IN YOUR FAVOUR, YOU WIN.
But we can
go through life not realising that your boss can be like a judge.
And will decide whether you get promoted.
Anyone in authority over you… can decide if you are going to be chosen or not for any opportunity that comes your way.
It may be the school play and the teacher gives the lead role to your friend.
It may be the pastor who gives the best preaching opportunities to someone else.
It may be your mother or father who decides to favour your younger brother or sister.
This is happening to people all the time and it can be very unfair.
Let me ask you this question?
IS THE COURT
RULING IN YOUR FAVOUR?
IS THE JUDGE ON YOUR SIDE?
you knew the judge was always going to rule for you.
Would you expect to start winning?
And would you feel like a winner?
In the next chapter, I am going to introduce you to the judge who will always be on your side.
