I wake up every morning asking God what could be said to empower myself and other Online Students: find a list of goals that you want to stick to, save them, and make these confessions daily.
My list includes:
- Debt is disappearing.
- Lack is leaving.
- Poverty is fleeing.
- Faith is increasing.
- Money is multiplying.
- Wealth is accumulating.
- Generosity is growing
- Visions are developing
The verse that empowers me is Matthew 6:22-23 New International Version (NIV), “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”
I have learned that my past is not what holds me down; it's what helps me as a person to live my life and overcome my everyday struggles. I have come a long way in life and knowing that my past can only sustain me to be greater. One can’t be better unless he or she desires more, and this is one aspect that I stick to in life. I know there is no such thing as a perfect life, but there is something I call a purpose driven life. I live by, if you're beautiful on the inside, of course your outer appearance will shine as well. Knowing who I am, and positively living to impact others greatly builds self-confidence that elevates empowering leadership skills. I am an outgoing person that brings smiles to whomever I am around. I am well educated and never want to stop learning. Wisdom is given to those who want to become wise. I love to read, write, and acknowledge growth from self-experiences. My objectives are to always grow in all that I do with empowering knowledge that “I CAN”, and to let ambition push me beyond my expectations. As your fellow student, I only want what's best for you, and that means if I want you to succeed, so does everyone else. Now, stick out your chest, take a deep breathe, and prepare yourself for this race. This race you will not lose, because you have a fleet of help to push you beyond your expectations.
“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” 1st Corinthians 9:24 (NIV)
NOW...GO... BE.... GREAT!!! #lustrong
