You can be a lot better than you are now if you give it more effort. You can achieve that dream if you keep pushing at it. You can be the best if you match determination with dedication and diligence. If opportunities don’t come, create them. Try again. Push again. Demand again. Ask again. Do it all over again.
Don’t settle for less. Don’t accept defeat. Don’t take it as your lot. Your lot is not predetermined. You can determine your lot. God’s plan for you is beautiful, you only have to press into the plan. Have a diehard mentality. Have the kind of mentality that ignores obstacles or used them as stepping stones. If Thomas Edison had settled for less, he may have accepted the lie that it is not possible to make light bulb. If the Wright Brothers had settled for less, traveling by air today may have been impossible.
Behind every invention, there are many failures, disappointments and obstacles, but the inventors persisted until they achieved the desired goal. Don’t accept mediocrity as your best. It can be better.
Let me end with these two great quotes. “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer. ” – Albert Einstein. “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” – Calvin Coolidge
Don’t settle for less!
God bless us all.
Good morning Africa!
Good morning Nigeria!
