I received a lot of comments from people who were inspired by it.
I earnestly hope that you have made good use of the truths I shared.
I shared three vital points.
1.Put GOD first.
2.Let yourself go.
There are eight more points but I’d share only four of them now.
A person who has no goals is susceptible to confusion and frustration.
Imagine a football match without goalposts. The players will tire out within a short time.
Imagine a sniper without a target. He’d become weary within a short time.
Goals help us to maintain focus.
One man said, “If a man doesn’t know where he is going, anywhere becomes his destination.”
It is easier to get to a destination when it is clearly defined.
When you set goals,you position yourself for better performance and higher productivity.
A lot of people are doing a lot of things.
Few people are doing the right things.
Fewer people are doing things right.
Fola Adeola, a co-founder of one of Nigeria’s most respected banks, Guaranty Trust Bank, says, “If we do it well, we will do well.”
Your “it” might be writing a book, building a house for a client or designing a website.
Whatever your “it” is, do “it” well.
It is good to do the right things, but it is better to do things right.
Over the years, several people have asked Jack Welch what his success secrets are.He has shared several insights but one of them is that he DID A LOT OF THINGS RIGHT.
Many people do some things right but the most successful people do a lot of things right.
This year, commit yourself to excellence.
Celebrate excellence.Embrace excellence.
Remember, doing things a little better will make you a lot better.
Discipline is one of the keys to mastery.
Great institutions are built by great men.Greatness is the product of discipline.
Nobody becomes great by luck.Greatness is carefully cultivated through several painful processes and seasons of sacrifice.It takes discipline to endure those rigorous processes.
King Solomon of ancient Israel compares a person who lacks discipline to a city with broken walls.The implication is that anything can go in and out. Think about that. A person who lacks discipline is like a strainer. He is porous-unable to hold anything substantial. He lacks the capacity to preserve what he procures, to process what he possesses and to maintain what he attains.
Discipline is seldom pleasant but it is a prerequisite for greatness.
There are two pains in life. There is the pain of discipline but there is also the pain of regret.
Which would you rather choose?
In recent times, this has become one of my favorite phrases. Stay strong.
We live in challenging times. Ours is a complex generation.
There are many things that seek to weaken us…on a daily basis.
From heart-breaking headlines to the pressure of living in a high-tech generation.
We are constantly confronted with issues that seek to strip of us our strength and confidence.
No doubt, the weak and wobbly will not last long, let alone reach the top. You have to make a decision to STAY STRONG and STAND FAST.
In war, there are only three categories of people- the COWARDS, the CASUALTIES and the CONQUERORS.
The cowards cower in the trenches.They flee at the sound of war.
The casualties stand…but only for a short time.
The conquerors stand until they are victorious.
We are conquerors.In fact, we are more than conquerors through Christ.
Don’t faint this year.No matter what attack the enemy launches against you, STAY STRONG!
