Scripture Reference: “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, Hebrews 12:1
Like I said yesterday, greatness is a function of compound interest. You have to be at it today and wake up to it tomorrow. Every day is an opportunity to grow. Don’t waste time waiting for inspiration. Begin and inspiration will find you. Don’t let your feelings and your moods affect your growth. We must remember that the quality of preparation determines the quality of performance. Personal development opens us up to seasons of quality preparation so that when opportunities come we can be ready.
Benjamin Disraeli said, “I will sit down but the time will come when you will hear me.”
Always remember that the season for preparation is not the season for manifestation. We must not confuse the recognition of success with success.
Champions are recognized in the ring, but it is the product of daily investment, daily training, daily discipline, daily input, which culminates into an outstanding success.
No great thing is created suddenly. Think about these words spoken by Christopher Morley. He said, “Big shots are little shots who kept shooting.” You have to keep at it. You can’t give up now.
Daily digest: One of the greatest heroes in American history, Abraham Lincoln said, “I shall study and prepare, then my opportunity will come.”
Prayer: I pray that God will open to you doors of new opportunities. I pray for joy where you have been experiencing depression. When you’re depressed you can be oppressed. I pray that God’s joy will overtake that depression.
