What if we changed our 'grind' mind set? What if self- motivation was no longer an excuse, or no longer rather , a good one. What if all you needed to succeed was a dream, that turned into a goal that manifested into reality through incredibly hard work. As believers we are also incredibly aware of the fact that none of this would be possible without our creator, without God backing us up 110%,we are nothing. He wills it all into existence.
In the powerful words of Denzel Washington during a commencement speech, " Fail big."
He says, "it's okay to have dreams but have goals, daily goals, monthly goals, yearly goals, and just because you are doing a lot more does not mean you are getting a lot more done." We don't plan to fail, we fail to plan." The amount of preparation that it takes to put into success wouldn't be insurmountable but it certainly would be less fulfilling once attained, without the Lord.
Another amazing man, who happened to be a follower of Christ once said,
"God may allow His servant to succeed when He has disciplined him to a point where he does not need to succeed to be happy. The man who is elated by success and is cast down by failure is still a carnal man. At best his fruit will have a worm in it."- A. W. Tozer
