My Devotional – Whatever it Takes

The word “diligence includes such qualities as hard work, honesty, persistence and striving for excellence. The New Living Bible Translation puts it this way: “Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper.” One expert says, “Success doesn’t come from being a hundred percent than your competition, but from being one percent better in a hundred different ways.”

Syndicated business columnist Dale Dauten says: “If you want to be creative in your company, your career or your life, it all comes down to one easy step…the extra one. When you encounter a familiar plan, you just ask one question: ‘What else could we do?'”

To succeed you’ll have to do more – more than you may want, more than your competition, more than you think you’re capable of. The poet William Arthur Ward said: “I will do more than belong – I will participate. I will do more than care – I will help. I will do more than believe – I will practice. I will do more than be fair – I will be kind. I will do more than forgive – I will forget. I will do more than dream – I will work. I will do more than teach – I will inspire. I will do more than live I will grow. I will do more than suffer – I will triumph.”
