Today I call foul on any notion of an inability to succeed, flourish and positively affect the lives of others through the efforts and causes of my work.
It is my responsibility to fly high and soar like an eagle. Therefore, [I will] “soar on wings like eagles; [I will] run and not grow weary, [I will] not grow weary, [I will] walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31. Above all, I am renewed; therefore, I can restart and soar. I am always rising, flying, soaring.
Perseverance: Even in the same way that I am built to persevere and succeed, I am also equipped to “make every effort to add to [my] faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge, self-control; and self-control, and perseverance, godliness…for if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep [me] from being ineffective and unproductive.” 2 Peter 1:8. My steadfast determination abounds, in my successes, works, deeds, and service. I persevere in my dedication to success and good works. I, therefore persevere.
Resilience: Still, exercise pliancy in my actions and deeds, even those times when everything in me yearns to stiffen and protect my spirit…and my heart attempts to erect barriers to protect me from the work. I am flexible and can recoil and snapback because I am resilient.
Soar, shine and succeed.
