We often think that if we had that person’s means or that person’s ability or that man’s opportunity, we could do something worth doing; but, as we are, there is no possibility of us doing anything great.
Yet God does not want us to fill any other man’s place, or to do any other man’s work. God wants us to improve our own opportunity with the possessions and the powers that He has given us. It is very important if you must truly live, to do the best you can with what you have, where you are.
You are not expected to do more than this, nor do you have the right to do any less. One of the costliest mistakes people make is to think that success is as a result of genius or some special talent, or magic – something or talent they don’t possess in them. That is wrong thinking that you must purge out from your mind.
Success in anything in life is generally due to holding one, persistently trying hard until you succeed. Your success today begins with you making a decision, to do something, anything and working on it long enough. But it starts with a decision from you. The decision that nothing can overrule, the grip that nothing can detach, will bring success.
Live your greatest life!
Part of today belongs to tomorrow, as the seed belongs to the shoot, as the foundation belongs to the building. So today owes its best to tomorrow, if you fail to do right today you may ruin tomorrow. But the reverse is not true.
Tomorrow cannot ruin today. Time’s wheel does not run backward. Banish, then, every thought or tendency to procrastinate, and fill today with faithful work, with kindness and courage and hope; and so you will keep tomorrow from being a bad one, and make it a good, honest today when it comes.
Live your greatest life!
Do you find yourself waiting for all the ducks to line up for you? Or you always want to see things perfectly before you set out? You may be missing out on so many opportunities that God has brought your way. In relationships, business and general success in life, opportunities do not always come with their values or worth stamped on them.
Everyone is challenged, and yet those who will succeed are those who are able to find the opportunities inside those challenges. And this requires having a different mindset; to realize that each new day, like today presents to us a chance of a lifetime which we must recognize and seize.
To face every opportunity of life thoughtfully and ask its meaning bravely and earnestly, is the only way to meet the supreme opportunities when they come, whether open faced or disguised.
If you are facing difficulties in your life today, always remember that; every battle you encounter in your life, where you are required to fight, sometimes with the last of your strength, has the possibility of victory that will prove to be a rich blessing to you. And every burden you are called upon to lift hides within itself a miraculous secret of strength.
