It’s so easy for us to think that we’ve seen it all.
Every now and again when you look over your shoulder and see how far you have come, you may say to yourself “i’ve tried,even if I don’t accomplish anything else,I’d be fine.”A wise man once suggested that one of the greatest enemies of the future is the past.You may put it this way-“one of the greatest enemies of who you can be is who you have been.
I’ve got to make this clear-no matter how far you’ve come or how much you’ve acquired, built, conquered, there are still more grounds to cover.
One historian records that Alexander the great on his 25th birthday, put his head in his hands and wept like a baby because he said “there are n more lands to conquer.”With all due respect, I beg to defer.If Alexander the Great had looked a little longer or observed more keenly, he would have infact noticed that he still had a lot of assignments for his troops.
There are still more grounds to cover.
There’s still no cure for HIV/AIDS.
Too many people are still spiritually impoverished and malnourished.
Crime rate is still very high.
I am not suggesting that you should eliminate all the problems we face in the world today.I am just saying that you should never get to a point in your life when you become complacent.
Theh best books have not be written.
The best buildings have not been built.
The best songs have not been written.
The best speeches have not been delivered.
Your best days are still ahead of you.
Reach in deep and bring out the best you’ve got to offer.And when you’ve done that, reach even deeper and you’d be surprised at the heights you’d attain.
