Jealousy is a spiritual kind of leprosy; it eats away at your contentment and may, eventually, lead you to give up on God's work in your life. Just know this: God gives to each his own and if you will only wait, He, at the right time, will set you on a merited throne. Work and wait for your turn. Eschew jealousy!

To be rich does not mean having all the money in the world. No. To be rich implies being able to appreciate and make the most of what you have at whatever time, no matter how small it may be. Contentment, you see, often is the distinguishing factor between the happy and the unhappy. Are you happy?

Too much of an apprehension of what the future holds robs you of the beauty that the present gifts you with. Too much nostalgia over the good things of the past keeps you from getting the most out of the future. The way out? While giving the past and the future their due, your focus should be the present, the only time you have any real influence over.

Frequently anticipate evil and you will precipitate bad happenings in your life. Constantly envision good and you will condition yourself for positive things. What one thinks, firmly believes and works toward often becomes one's reality. Why not be hopeful in your outlook?

A man is not modest merely because he dresses plainly and speaks respectfully. A man is not immodest simply because he dresses fashionably and acts assertively. True pride and real humility go much deeper than what is displayed on the outside. Look deeper, for there lies the true man.

Wishing you were someone else is denigrating the person you are. Hoping you had been made in a different way is insulting our all-knowing God for fashioning you in the manner He did. There may be billions of us here on earth, but each one is a rare gem, unique and bursting with God's gifts. You, first and foremost, must acknowledge just how special you are. No one can do that for you.

A general and crucial principle of life is that you must put in if you mean to bring out. You fish for money with money, do you not? Some resource, whether your strength, time, talents, skills or some other thing must be invested so you can secure those other things you want. Giving and taking are partners in the firm called life.

The completion of one project often is the beginning of another; the realisation of one goal usually implies the setting of others. Don't become stagnant. Think up new ideas; work on new, positive things. That is the way to ceaseless growth and continuous fulfillment.

When you look at someone who is deemed greatly wise, always remember that he or she got to that point having made myriad foolish decisions. We learn a lot from others; we also learn from our own actions, whether flawed or otherwise. Be patient with yourself; some mistakes are better made than avoided.

It is said that one who runs from a fight lives to fight another day. That is true. It also is true that it is the most logical option, sometimes, to avert imminent disaster by fleeing from a situation in order that you can restrategise for victory at a later time. Lean on prudence even while you aim for the stars.
