"To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming is the only end of life."
Robert Louis Stevenson
Life offers us so much promise. The promise of boundless hope, providing the unbridled optimism to believe that we can live the life weve always dreamed of living. The promise of another day; a golden opportunity to make our lives the rich and rewarding experiences they are supposed to be and then making tomorrow an even more exciting adventure. The promise of another chance; granting us one opportunity after another to do our best and then do even better. So much promise.
Yet far too many people live a life full of unfilled promises and broken dreams. Why, in a world filled with so much opportunity and abundance, do so many people leave behind a string of unfulfilled promises?
Far too often these individuals have been conditioned to fail. Although they were born to win and carry an invincible winning spirit with them from the day they are born until the day that they die, they fail to acknowledge or even appreciate this precious gift. You cannot allow this to happen to you.
"Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle."
In order to realize your ample potential, you must first believe, deep down in your heart and soul, that you have what it takes to win. Harold Whitman said, "Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive." When you follow your heart, youll discover that special something that makes you come alive. This is your purpose, your calling your reason for living.
Your purpose will set you ablaze with excitement and enthusiasm, giving your life meaning and a sense of direction. Your purpose will stir your inner soul, encouraging you to pursue excellence in everything you say, think and do. Once you have identified your true purpose on earth and then begin fashioning your life around it, youre ready to fulfill your promise.
"Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential."
Why not dare to see your life as it could be and then persistently go out and live it as it should be? The moment you start believing, I mean they really believing, that anything and everything you have ever dreamed of having, doing and being can come true - then and only then will you be prepared to keep your promise.
"It's not what you've got, it's what you use that makes a difference."
When you decide once and for all to boldly step up and forcefully rededicate yourself to a lifetime of winning, you will reawaken and unleash that powerful, instinctive winning spirit once again. You can turn your life around. You can start living life on your terms. You can have anything and everything you have ever dreamed of having. Yes, you can.
All you need to do is reach up as far as you can. God will help you reach the rest of the way - and keep your promise.
The Bottom Line: When you promise to do your very best day in and day out, you'll fulfill your promise on earth.
