Day 45: Will you sit on your Laurels?
A phenomenol defination of what it mean to be human is growth. To be human is to grow! It is an inherent need in men and women. We human keep on innovating new ways of doing things, ways to make work easier and life more bearable and predictable. Always challenge yourself and work to always become a better version of yourself. Everytime you conquer a mountain, celebrate but remember there remain more mountains to bring down.
The hand of the valiant shall bear rule: but that which is slothful shall be under tribute.Prov 12:24 (RHE)
When you are done celebrating, figure out what next need to be done. Think how can you take your life (and those of your loved ones) to an even higher level? If you successfully graduated with an undergraduate, now is a good time to start working and saving for your masters. If you have a piggy bank where you have been saving, now its is a good opportunity to take your savings one step further and work on achieving financial security.
Always view your accomplishment as an opportunity to accomplish even more greater things. Desist from seeing it as a permission to become indolent. Let your accomplishement fuel your to seek higher grounds.
I love the proverb that says, “The hand of the valiant shall bear rule: but that which is slothful shall be under tribute…” Work Valiantly!!
