We must always remember that:
"Nobody can do everything, but everyone can do something."*The best way to start on all the things that God has asked us to do is to start. There is no value in assessing what you need to do if you do not plan to do anything about it. Some people spend more time assessing what they should do rather than doing what they need to do. "Instead of counting your days, make your days count."*
Although I don't completely agree, I can understand what Leo Rosten meant when he said: "The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all." Personally, I've found that I am so happy and fulfilled when I'm MAD (Making A Difference).
One thought I'd like to leave you with: "Improvement begins with I."****
Ultimately, "self-improvement is the name of the game, and your primary objective is to strengthen yourself, not to destroy an opponent." (Maxwell Maltz)
We all need to be encouraged and deliberately work on ourselves and on what God has called us to, then we''ll go places and make a difference wherever we go.
