Irrepressible

Everyone loves a great comeback story.  One of the greatest in NFL history was between the Buffalo Bills and the Houston Oilers played on January 3, 1993.  The Bills recovering from a 32-point deficit, went on to miraculously win in overtime, 41–38. They refused to lose and regardless of their deficit never quit until they had accomplished the impossible.

Irrepressible is defined as, impossible to hold back, stop, or control.  This is a personal quality that is mandatory for any notable success. An irrepressible person never regards the circumstances or perceived setbacks. When others have given up because failure seem obvious, the irrepressible person fearlessly continues because defeat is never an obvious conclusion.

There is a stark difference between those who win and those who lose.  Winners never think about losing.  The don’t even include the word “lose” in their vocabulary. Even to the very last seconds of the contest, they exert as much effort as they did at the start. They are irrepressible.

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.Galatians 6:9 ESV

 Anything worth accomplishing is worth fighting for. To achieve your very best in life, growing weary is a luxury you can never afford. Getting tired or discouraged is an emotion you cannot give in to.  Only a small percentage of people will stand in the elite winner’s circle because few have what it takes to be truly irrepressible. However, that ability is within you, but you must persist beyond the ordinary to access it.

Make this an irrepressible week. God has given you the power to make it so.
