Now a little Foreword for you, by Dexter R. Yager, Sr:

Some years ago, a researcher decided to find the secret of success. After months of study and countless interviews, he finally gave up. “There is not a secret,” he said, “it is all related to hard work. One must climb the ladder to success, not just be lifted on an elevator.” The successful individual is the one who will do what the average person will not do. And average is nothing more than being the top of the bottom.

Thinking wrong, believing wrong, and confessing wrong always lead to an unhappy, mediocre and unprofitable way of life.
Some say success is just a decision away. That is true, on the surface. But that decision must be backed up with solid effort.

Your growth potential, return on your investment, rewards in proportion to your efforts, and personal independence are limited only by your vision and desire. This already has made you above average. So be enthusiastic! You have a lot to be excited about. God created you in the likeness of Himself and endowed you with specific talents and abilities. As you develop those areas in your life and use them to help others, you won’t have to be concerned about being above average. You will have conquered that enemy.

Let us all push for excellence and launch out! It is our prayer that as you read each post, you will allow the Holy Spirit to reveal God’s plan for you and to inform, exhort, and correct you so that you will bound past every area of mediocrity and find total fulfillment in your life.

Maligayang Pagbabasa sa’yo! 😀
