Taking a stand while keeping control

From Pastor Charles Neiman:

Throughout history men and women have had to choose sides. To become extraordinary, you must take a stand.

“If you fail to take a side, you will find it impossible to get where you want to go.”

Your life will either sizzle or fizzle. Are you living your life white hot?

10 years from today what will you wish you had done now? Do it now.

Do not

  • believe the restrictions others set on you. People love to build boxes for other people. When you don’t want to live in the box they’ve built for you, they call you crazy.
  • quit because other people laugh at your dreams. If you are going to dream, dream big. If you don’t have a dream, how are you going to make a dream come true?
  • back away from fear.
  • listen to fault finders. Never let a problem become an excuse to do nothing.
  • accept your current situation as your final destination; Everything you see is temporary.

“Do you see difficulties or opportunities in difficulties?”
