“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3: 14).
Great opportunities for success are often lost when scholars try to avoid risks. Youths who concentrate on small matters do not take risks on great adventures. No man can make an outstanding achievement by taking risks on small ideas. It is often wise to spend time on the attainment of great goals than taking small risks on simple matters. Prudent students are those who attempt to stretch themselves in order to reach out to seemingly impossible tasks. You can only stir up God’s gifts in you by making advances to attempt difficult tasks. Great potential for success could remain dormant in your life if you do not dare to take chances to do great things.
Youths who have faith in God think big and have great dreams. You need to attempt tasks that are beyond you so as to trust in God for success. Every student needs an ‘extra’ for extraordinary performance before he/she can leave the camp of common achievers. You can only add the extra by making advances to take chances on great risks to achieve great dreams. The more time you spend in the “safety zone” the more you delay relaxing in the camp of mediocrity. Begin to take action to achieve your great goals by faith in the unfailing God. The future is bright for youngsters who dare to take chances to excel in their success pursuit.
Challenge: Great goals are for great achievers, but average performers attempt small tasks.
Prayer: Dear Lord, give me the courage to make great advances in my success pursuit.
