I’d like to share the following extract taken from devotional booklet UCB Word for Today* (8 May 2017):
Become a person who is spiritually, emotionally and mentally prepared for any challenge that crosses your path, and don’t allow yourself to be easily discouraged or defeated. And you do that by ‘the renewing of your mind’ with God’s Word.
(Bob & Debbie Gass)

Listen to what one godly couple has to say on the subject of time management:
Time is the stuff life is made of and wasted time is wasted life. It takes time to build relationships, learn skills, execute meaningful actions, achieve goals, and fulfil plans. A mismanaged life is often the result of mismanaged time.
(Bob & Debby Gass – UCB Word for Today – Feb-April 2017)
Author/entrepreneur Seth Godin says: ‘We need to stop shopping for lightning bolts. You don’t win an Olympic medal with a few weeks of intensive training. There’s no such thing as an overnight opera sensation. Great companies [and great churches] and here let me add great relationships, don’t spring up overnight. . . every great thing has been built in exactly the same way: bit by bit, step by step, little by little.’
There are no shortcuts; you must be willing to pay the price.

You will always move in the direction of your strongest and most dominant thought.
One of the most beautiful gifts God has given you is your mind. There are two major functions of your mind. One is your memory, the other is your imagination. Both are God-given gifts that can help or hurt you. Your memory will photograph, file and replay pictures of your past. Your imagination, on the other hand, creates and preplays pictures of things you want to happen in your future.
Dream Seeds – Mike Murdock

In his internationally best-selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen R. Covey defines a habit as:
“. . . the intersection of knowledge, skill and desire.
Knowledge is the theoretical paradigm, the what to do and the why. Skill is the how to do. And desire is the motivation, the want to do. In order to make something a habit in our lives, we have to have all three.”
Are there any habits in your life, which undermine your potential for success?
