Thought for the Day

Doing what you're called to do, what you're passionate about, will give you a radiance you could never have any other way. This radiance reaches out and touches everyone around you; drawing them to you. Even if what you do isn't necessarily connected to their calling, the sight of you achieving your dreams, the motivation and discipline you have cultivated, will inspire them, encourage them to step out and achieve their own "impossible".

You may be the only person who can reach certain people. If you fail to achieve your dreams, you aren't just letting yourself down. You're letting down God (who created the dreams in you) and countless others who could only have been illuminated by your radiance. Achieving a dream carries a great responsibility, but it is one we must carry if we are to be truly successful.
