GEMS FOR SUCCESS


“The desert has its holiness of silence, the crowd its holiness of conversation” (Walter Elliot).

Whether in church or outside church, pursue holiness! (Dr. CHRIS, ODM)

“To err is human, to repent divine, to persist devilish”- (Benjamin Franklin).

God is a God OF MERCY, but, He is also a consuming fire! Don’t live in deliberate sin. (Dr. CHRIS, ODM)

“Studies indicate that the one quality all successful people have is persistence. They’re willing to spend more time accomplishing a task and to persevere in the face of many difficult odds. There’s a very positive relationship between people’s ability to accomplish any task and the time they’re willing to spend on it”. (Dr Joyce)

DON’T BE AN EASY QUITTER!
“Never give up. If you want to be something, be conceited about it, give yourself a chance. Never say you are not good, that will never get you anywhere. Set goals, That’s what life is made of” (Mike Mclaren).

DON’T GIVE UP EASILY ON ANY GOAL! (Dr. CHRIS, ODM)
“I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail, I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult…. I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking” (Og Mandino).

GOLIATH WAS CREATED TO ANNOUNCE YOU! HOLD ON AND HOLD OUT IN THE FACE OF OBSTACLES! (Dr. CHRIS, ODM).

“If you want to see your dreams come through, help others to achieve theirs.” (Laura Etemah).
