Purpose: Purpose is the result, the end, aim or goal of an action intentionally undertaken. In human life, there is a fundamental need for guiding ideals that give meaning to our actions – and this fundamental need determines the pattern and the direction at which the result are achieved. Purpose is central to a good human life. Helen Keller wrote that happiness comes from “fidelity to a worthy purpose”. I run with purpose in every step. Purpose is what gives life a meaning.
Desire: Your desire is the key that unlocks the energy within to make things happen for you. It’s also the key to a long and interesting life. Nothing stops the man who desires to achieve worthwhile goals in life. The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul.
Decision: It is your decision that determines your destiny. Your limitation is a function of your decision. The scripture says,” You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you”.
Self-discipline: “Self-discipline is a form of freedom. Freedom from laziness, lethargy, expectations of others, weakness, fear and doubt. Self-discipline is the ability to get yourself to take action regardless of your state of mind (emotional). Self-discipline can empower you to overcome any addiction, wipe out procrastination, disorder, and ignorance. It’s a state of mind; you could call it character in action. ‘Every athlete exercises self-control in all things”
