Winston Bennett spoke to several hundred of our associates and connected with them in a way many other speakers have not. His name recognition from UK basketball, his stories relating to personal challenges, packaged in an overall scheme of change and personal growth allowed our associates to think differently about change, and the value of change.
As one associate put it, "you guys talk about change all the time, but Mr. Bennett came at it from a different angle, and I get it now."
That was precisely what we hoped to achieve, and Winston did it with flying colors.
He hit the nail right on the head. He spoke right to where our youth are living. His comments on not only knowing God's will but also on doing it were right on target. This was one of the best contemporary services we've had. I'm so glad our youth could hear him.
... I cannot tell you the faces I saw come alive as Winston spoke to the students. We never really know who will be touched by one's words. However, I am confident that Coach Bennett touched the lives of many of our students with his inspirational words ...
If you struggle with mediocrity Fight for Your Life is for you.
If you are fallen prey to life defeating habits, fight for your life is for you.
If you have a dream to be extraordinary instead of ordinary order the book Fight For Your Life from tragedy to triumph.
This book will incite you to do your best, it will motivate you to do more in less time, it will ignite your dreams to be the very best you, you were created to be. We all fail at trying to be the best, the challenge is getting up once you have fallen.
Winston Bennett, MBA has learned through the tests and trials of life that if you are going to be a success you have got to fight. The fight is not against your competition, but against yourself. We are our own worst enemy. If you are to become great, you must overcome you. That means conquering our own self doubt. That means believing in ourselves, having a positive attitude when life looks bleak. That means having a vision for your life. You must have a relentless work ethic and you must have that burning desire to be the best.
After experiencing numerous career ending injuries, Winston continued to fight to achieve his dreams and his goals. Instead of relinquishing his dream to play basketball at the University of Kentucky, and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA, he continued to fight. If you are going to be successful in life, you too will have to fight for you life. However, when you decide to be successful, no matter what the field of endeavor, expect challenges.
Winston believes you only become successful in life after you have received your PHD. You must be Poor in spirit (humble), Hungry in your pursuit (passionate), and Driven in the direction of your goals (tenacious). It has been said, if you continue to do what you have always done, you will continue to get the results you have always received.
