What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

You need God’s Word to guide you. The Bible is the owner’s manual for life. The more you read it, study it, memorize it, and meditate on it, the more successful and fulfilled you are going to be in life.

When Joshua was given the great dream of taking over the Promised Land – a goal that was going to take him the rest of his life – God had these words for him: “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success” (Joshua 1:8).

We need support from others. You will not be able to reach your dream on your own, but it takes a team to fulfil it. You will be able to share your goals and your successes and failures, and they will rejoice with you and encourage you to keep on going. You will need that when you make the right kind of goals and pursue them wholeheartedly.

Your time is precious, so do not waste it living someone else’s life. I learned to always take on things I would ever have done before. Growth and comfort do not coexist.

By yourselves you are unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst. Can you round up a third? A three stranded rope is not easily snapped. Ecclesiastes 4:12
