Becoming a Person of Influence
MAKE IT A POINT TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW TODAY.
The great secret of success is to go through life as a man who never gets used up.” When you make it a goal to continually learn and enlarge yourself, you become the kind of person who can never be “used up.” You’re always recharging your batteries and finding better ways to get things done. To determine whether you are still growing, ask yourself what you’re still looking forward to. If you can’t think of anything or you’re looking back instead of ahead, your growth may be at a standstill.
It has been said,
“The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance. It is the illusion of knowledge.”
Many people lose sight of the importance of personal growth once they finish their formal education. But don’t let that happen to you. Any day that passes without personal growth is an opportunity lost to improve yourself and to enlarge others.
1 Timothy 3:2
Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,
Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
1 Peter 5:8
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour
“More men have become great through practice than by nature.”
