The things that frighten you the most often prove to be the very things you must face if you are to soar to heights beyond what your mind can imagine. Overcome your fears. Live your dreams. Be all you can.
When all your attempts at achieving some goal fail, that is when you ought to resist the temptation to give up, revise your strategies, hold on to your dreams and go the extra mile. Such an attitude is what often differentiates quitters from winners. Keep fighting. Never let go of your dreams!
Never underestimate the value of failure in your life. While success, every now and then, is both refreshing and stimulating, too much of it can trick you into believing you are invincible - to your own ruin of course. Be willing to learn the lessons failure teaches.
Anywhere there is the need for a helping hand, that is where you ought to be. Any way you can lighten the burden of another, that is what you ought to do. Any time is a good time to love - to do good to others. God put you here to make a difference; be the difference our world sorely needs.
In any dictionary, the words achievement, commitment, diligence and effectiveness appear before holidaying, leisure, pleasure and recreation. In the proper order of things, exertion comes before rest. So, too, in our lives; we must seek, primarily, to do that which is essential before turning to that which is accessory. Order your life properly; put first what must come first.
While with God second chances abound in our lives, same does not usually apply in the case of our fellow mortals. With many men giving second chances is a luxury they can ill afford, which is why you may never get a second chance at making that good first impression. Make the right impressions now, while the window of opportunity remains open.
How would you react if you were swimming in the sea and you suddenly spotted a great white shark headed straight for you?

You do realise the jaws of sin can do far worse damage to you than a great white's, right?
