“Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither — whatever they do prospers.”
– Psalm 1:1-3
The reason a person achieves or fails to achieve in life is directly related to his or her own thoughts. People who think clearly about their goals — measurable goals — are achievers. People who make plans, achieve. People who believe, achieve. People who dedicate their life to learning and to knowledge, achieve. People who achieve are people who are willing to sacrifice, willing to endure losing at something, and willing to be embarrassed over and over and over in the midst of failure. Yet, they still get up and try and do something. Ultimately, people who foster thoughts of achievement will achieve. It is known.
Give me faith and courage, God, to achieve my goals.
