Never settle for less

From T.D. Jakes book, Woman Thou Art Loosed:

With any problem there are 3 characters

  • the person
  • the problem
  • the prescription

Many times the person hardest to forgive is the one in the mirror. Remember, your past does not dictate your future. Men tend to act out of what they perceive to the be facts while women tend to react out of their emotions.  By nature, women are receivers. Be careful what you receive. Never allow yourself to settle for anything less than the best for you. Women are open by nature and design while men are generally closed.

“Do what is right, not just what is convenient or acceptable. This is courage.”

“Declare once you stand up, you will never bow again.”

“Courage has many faces, speaks a thousand languages, and lives all over the world.”
