In order to succeed at an exceptional level there must be accountability and high expectations present in your circle.
“Blessed is that servant whom the master finds doing his job when he comes.”
Focal passage: Luke 12:42-48
This is the passage we’ve heard our entire life. But we must ask ourselves, “How many of us really want to be exceptional? How many of us really want to do great things?”
Yes, we talk about doing great things, but do our actions exemplify it? We put forth the effort of doing great things, but are we holding ourselves accountable to it?
Before we try to be a part of a circle of friends who are more successful than we are, we must first better ourselves. We must begin to hold ourselves accountable and have the expectations of ourselves to begin to work towards meeting those expectations.
Everyone wants to be successful, but the problem is no one wants to work for it. No one wants to make sacrifices. Here’s the thing. You must acknowledge that you can be better.
Start today and make today better than your yesterday. You must increase that each day and then you’ll find that success will not only be obtainable, but success will follow you and be a part of your everyday life. That will change your circle as well as put you in the presence of true success.
