Press toward the mark

By: Rusty Potter

Don’t just watch the clock, do what the second hand on the clock does. Keep moving. You can learn more from losing than winning. The person who falls and gets up is stronger than the person who never fell. You must know that you have the power to pick yourself up and move forward to win. You learn to keep moving. You were created to be a winner. There is no limit to how high you can go in life. Keep stretching to your highest potential. Philippians 3:14 (KJV) “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Every day, you reinvent yourself. You are like the second hand on the clock always moving forward. You have to decide each day: If you are going forward or backward.

You have 86,400 seconds in a day. The choices you make with your time will determine your success or failure in life. You must be careful who you invest your time with. Time is one thing you can’t get back. How much time do you spend working on yourself? In the past month, what new skills or knowledge have you acquired? Successful people have the same amount of time each day as you and I. What are they doing that we are not doing? On the weekend and after work they are using their own time to invest in themselves. The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do with your time. Abraham Lincoln said, “That some achieve great success is proof that others can achieve it as well.”
