Private triumph allows for public victory. Evangelist, Billy Graham, practiced preaching to stumps before speaking in front of multitudes of people.⁴ What we do in private shows up in public. Start practicing and developing or enhancing any skill you desire to acquire or improve upon in a daily focused, determined, diligent manner. The best time to begin was one month ago, the second best time is right now. Learn from mistakes and keep on practicing. Personal success, relative to you, not comparative to anyone else, can be yours. How bad do you want it and why? Do you—everyone else is taken.
Look at people, places, and things through other individual’s filters with empathy. See another person’s view and think for yourself why that person perceives something that way. Is it positive, rational, logical, true, moral, principled, and right? If so, maybe it’s something worth considering adopting for yourself. Keep an open mind and think for yourself with prudent discernment. People that don’t decide for themselves what to do allow others to dictate their lives for them. For everything we say yes to, we are saying no to the rest. Take control of your choices, beliefs, time, and perceptions while living fully, today. Create your dream life full of positive meaning and purpose, starting right now. Meaning depicts the uniquely intrinsic and extrinsic individual connotations given to it.
“How can you think of saying, ‘Friend, let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye” (Luke 6: 42). Before change occurs in someone else, lead the way by changing yourself first. Change takes self-control, time, effort, and patience. Be cognizant upon how long it takes or has taken you to change. Empathize with relative change and struggles in others’ desirable, passionate, willing, respectful, and honorable aspirations toward becoming better in all they do.
