What do you have to gain by giving up? There is always a time when quitting looks good. In my personal life, there were times when I thought about quitting college, jobs and other personal achievements and endeavors. Finishing makes it worth it. There is nothing like finishing. The obstacles makes the success greater to enjoy. Pain and process can create some impressive results for God ways are mysterious.
Stay committed until the end. Put your all into everything you do. (Even when your all seems to fall short). Mediocrity does run in your DNA. You are held to a higher standard. You live in the world but are not of the world. Stop waiting on the approval and validation from other people to tell you that you’re great. You must encourage yourself. Go forth and rise up! It’s important to run your race. No one else’s. You have a different calling and assignment. He has set you a part. Commitment should not be driven by feelings. Commitment is showing up when you don’t feel like it. It runs deeper than loyalty. It requires discipline, honor and obligation. It requires getting back up when you’re fallen down. It takes a spirit of courage and wisdom. It’s take more than dedication and determination. It takes the spirit of a true champion and over comer. There are a few people in this world who have the spirit of commitment. Commitment displays your character and how far you can go. Don’t quit. The best is yet to come. Your best days are in front of you and not behind you. Put God over all that you do. Stay true and faithful to him. His word shall never return void. He shall honor your commitment, for he will reward you openly for what you do in secret. Can he trust you drop it all for his sake? Commit yourself unto him. He will protect you through it all. He will always preserve his best. Remain faithful even until the end.

Who are you? It’s a question that people ask even until the end of their lives. It’s not a question that can be easily answered despite the life experiences that one must go through and endure. It’s not answered by popularity, your past, riches, nor flattery. It’s not something you can seek from the pleasures of this world, which will surely fade and give you unrest. The pleasures of this world will deteriorate your soul as a moth destroys clothes. You can have everything going on from the outside and still feel absolutely empty on the inside. You can look like you have the perfect peace, but your spirit may be broken into pieces. Everything is not what it appears or seem. Your worth cannot be defined through material things and other people’s affirmation. You have to find who you are and not through the words of other people. You are who God says you are. Once you know the truth, it shall set you free. Please know your worth and who you are. Do not compromise your dignity, value, honor, respect and integrity. Only God can give you the answer if you seek him above all else.
It is written in Exodus 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.
As so it was with Moses, the Lord will guide your footsteps and directions all of the days of your life. He has the answers to the question, Who are you? No one else has the key to unlock that answer.
A part of becoming a great leader is to have control of your emotions. Do you master your emotions? Whatever you don’t have control of is what will control you. Do not allow your emotions to dictate your actions , behavior, or words. Mastering your emotions is a skill of controlling your flesh. Mastering your emotions also takes discipline. It takes time and practice. Following your emotions and heart will lead you astray. It can cause you to make the wrong decisions. Emotions can blind you from the truth as well as from wisdom. It is written in Proverbs 3:5 to Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Follow the voice of the Lord who will not lead you astray. Do not put things into your own hand. Allow God to handle everything his way, his time and on his terms.
