There were times I was comfortable being an average student. I had everything it required to be an excellent student but I lacked the confidence to PUSH for being an exceptionally excellent student.
I loved to be celebrated but I hated to be at the limelight for the fear of failure. I hated failure with passion. So, I underused my potentials & preferred to be an average student. Only if I had PUSHed further…
Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t do badly academically. Right from childhood, I was always tagged among the best students, but looking back at those moments now, I laugh at what my tutors were celebrating.
Maybe if there was someone to challenge the fear of failure out of me and encourage me to PUSH, I could have done better.
Stop being satisfied with that level. Stop accepting to be behind. You can strive for more. You can achieve more. You can do better than you are doing right now.
You are created for the top. Take the bull by the horn and pull fear behind you! The Bible says, For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)
Greatness is yours only if you will fearlessly PUSH your way through it with God by your side. Never settle for less but keep PUSHING!
How far have you gone with your goals for the year?
How much energy have you invested in it?
Are you still working towards it or you have given up already?
Hello, the days remaining are still enough to do something. Get on your feet now and PUSH!
P – Persist
U – Until
