How do you measure up against your potential? In reality, that should be your only competition. Today, excel in your God-given talents. You are unique and so are your talents. Focus only on yourself and don't stop until you get that trophy!
As we come close to the end of 2016, let me remind you that life is a journey. It is not about the destination so much as how you enjoy each step of the way. You have an outfit you have been dying to wear, wear it today. You have a restaurant you've been wanting to dine at, do it today. You have a guy/girl you have been dying to ask out, do it today. Whatever it is, live your best life NOW. If you have to travel on the journey of life, you might as well do it with some fun and style.
I pray that you may increase in anointing, in wisdom, in favor and in influence! Amen!
