One of my favourite quotes from the Holy Bible is found in the letter of Saint Paul to the believers in Philippi, wherein he said, “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me”.
Growing up as a little boy, I memorized this verse but beyond just memorizing it, I was conditioning my mind for all-round success. Each time I said to myself, “I can do all things”, my mind kept possessing the I-can-do-all-things attitude — an attitude of possibility and success.
Our thoughts and words play a very critical role in determining our success in life. If you think and say you can, then you can. But if you think and say otherwise, you may end up achieving nothing.
Regardless of what’s facing you and regardless of what people say about you, what you think and say is more important.
• They said to David: Goliath is a warrior and a giant, but he (David) said he could do all things, and he eventually conquered the giant and became victorious.
• They said to the Wright brothers: Humans can’t fly, but they (the Wrights) said they could do all things, and they went ahead to invent the aeroplane.
• They said to Barak Obama: You’re but a Negro, but he (Obama) said that he could do all things, and he went ahead to become the first black president of America.
There are no impossibilities anywhere except the ones we create in our minds.
No more limitations!
Say to yourself: I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST THAT STRENGTHENS ME!!!
Take action and succeed.
