Believe In Yourself – Daily Wisdom

Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1758 of our trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. We are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before. Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Proverbs 16:16 says, "How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver!" If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget. Today’s quote is from Vince Lombardi, and it is, "A man can be as great as he wants to be. If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive, and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done."

Believe In Yourself

Vince Lombardi, one of the greatest coaches, knew what it took to be a champion. Nearly all our limitations are self-imposed. God created us as masterpieces to fulfill our destinies as His imagers. To image God is to project through us His greatness to a world that so desperately needs Him. If we view ourselves as God views us, we will have the courage, determination, dedication, competitive drive, and the willingness to sacrifice the little temporal things of life and pay the price for that which is eternal. So why do we settle for being less than what designed us to be? We settle when we choose to have what we desire now, for what we want most. Don’t allow short-term shiny objects to distract you from your potential in life. You can reach your potential if you are willing to pay the price now for huge returns at a future date. Don’t give in. Don’t give up. Keep moving forward. Hosea 10:12 I said, "Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and shower righteousness upon you." As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
