Essence of Discipline . . .
God – Given Potential
The first step in developing confidence is proving to yourself that you have God-given abilities that are begging to be developed. In order to do this, you’re going to have to leave safety and security of the comfort zone you live in so that you can learn something new.
This might mean attending/enroling for a class that stretches you intellectually to prove to yourself that your mind functions well. Maybe you need to take lessons in an area that will stretch your artistic or athletic skills. Or maybe you should become a part of a group activity or a new challenge in school or a ministry in your church.
You see, people who never leave their comfort zonesdon’t grow in their confidence! You develop confidence by gritting your teeth and saying, “If I am fearfully made, and if I have all of this divine potential within me, I’m going to try something new and see what happens.”
What is one God-given ability, talent, or spiritual gift that you need
to develop and start using?
What can you do to start developing greater levels of competency
in this area of your life?
When life pushes you down, push back! That's what you're here for. You're capable, you're creative, you're full of life and energy. You have what it takes to move yourself forward around any obstacle.
Don't let anything stop you.
Take strength from meeting the challenges, and move ahead. The struggles you face are just what you need to fulfill your potential for greatness. Think back over the past year. Consider the ways in which you've grown, the things you've learned, your accomplishments. Most of these probably came from overcoming some challenge or adversity
which initially stood in your way.
A year from now, when you look back at today, you'll see that the problem you're so concerned with right now, was another valuable lesson waiting to be learned.

My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.
“Please be patient with me,
God is not through with me yet.”
These credentials belong to one of the Greatest Presidents in the History of the United States of America
Identify one specific area in your life in which you have a pattern of quitting.
(What specific situations do you always find yourself giving in or surrendering?)
What are the barriers that stand in the way of breaking through?
( What are the things that makes you “give up?)
What does it take to persevere to the point of breaking through this quitting point?
( What will it take for you to persevere and not give up?)
“Blessed are those who draw on God’s strength and endure through trials and crash through quitting points.”
Many of us still believe in the myth of more. We really think that a little more money, a little more status, a little more excitement, a little more travel, a little more pleasure, a little more power, a little more whatever, will finally produce satisfaction in our soul. But stop and reflect for a moment. Have any of your acquisitions, experiences, or accomplishments brought you significant levels of inner satisfaction? Or are you still one possession, one award, one position away from being able to say, “Enough.” The myth of more consigns us to a lifetime of discontentment and dissatisfaction.
NO HANDS NO WORRIES
Today I can complain because the weather is rainy, or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.Today I can feel sad that I don’t have more money, or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.Today I can mourn my lack of friends, or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.
Today I can complain because I have to go to school, or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich tidbits of knowledge.Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.And what today will be like is up to me.
“The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything”.

INSTEAD OF EMOTION DRIVEN
It is not doing the things we like to do, but doing the things we have to do that causes growth and make us successful.
“There’s no such thing as a perfect job. In any position you’ll find duties which, if they are not difficult at that time, they eventually will be. Success depends not merely on how well you do the things you enjoy, but how conscientiously you perform duties that are not enjoyable”
John Luther A
Good Character is more praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, gifts. By contrast, good character is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece – by thought, choice, courageand determination.
SIGNIFICANCE is when I add value to others
Not to ACQUIRE”
