PRECEPTS OF EXCELLENCE (PART 3)

PRECEPTS OF EXCELLENCE (PART 3)

(7) DARE TO DREAM

*There is a dream in your heart/spirit in form of an idea. A vision is dropped in your heart as a seed. It is the definition of your life – Psalms 21:2, Philippians 2:13

*Release the power of imagination. Use your mind positively to design your future. Engage your mind to plot your way to the top – Genesis 11:6

* See your dream through. Don’t give up. There will be obstacles fulfilling the dream but don’t let go. Don’t abort your dream. Rely on God to protect your dream. Your vision will attract provision. Nehemiah 2:10, 19; Philippians 1:6.

 Dream and dream big! You are qualified to do so.
 Shut your eyes to things that do not inspire you where your dreams are concerned. What you pay attention to will either enhance or still your dream.
 Take off mental limits to the realization of your dream. You have the help of the Greater One to fulfill it.
 Don’t allow your dream to intimidate you. There’s provision for your vision.
 Dream again if you have had shattered hopes in time past. Whenever a man cannot dream again, he has reached a point of hopelessness.

(8) BE THE BEST WHEREVER YOU ARE

*Excellence can be achieved at any level. Don’t get under pressure just because you want to make an impression. Make the most of your present level. Daniel 1:8, Philippians 4:11-13

*There is an appointed time for every God given assignment. If you go ahead to live the future in the present … you may not get to the future. Habakkuk 2:3, Ecclesiastes 3:1

* Master the art of achieving the best with little means. Excellence is a spirit that can be discerned whether the operation is small or large. It does not have to be big to be excellent. Luke 16:10

 Make the most of where you are. Right decisions, impressions and impacts are achievable at any level with an excellent spirit.
 Don’t put yourself under pressure by living beyond your means. Excellence is not living a life you cannot afford
 Deal with competitive tendencies. Your race and phase are defined by God, not other people’s activities and programs
 Keep finding better ways to maximize your present resources. Excellence and Prudence go together
 Do all you can to have excellent results at every stage of your life. Excellence is not what you will become; it is who you are.

(9) ASSOCIATE WITH GREATNESS

*Develop an eye for greatness. Great men find themselves moving with other great men. Proverbs 27:17, Proverbs 13:20.

*Launch yourself into greatness through relationships. Recognize and keep God- ordained relationships. Watch out for the spirit of offense. Proverbs 27:9, Luke 17:1, Genesis 12:5, Genesis 13:7

 Rise in life with the help of the right associations. Your associations draw limits on your life and as a result determine your achievement and attainment.
 Always adjust the company you keep to fit your purpose and vision. Friendships are not automatically forever.
 Surround yourself with people that will keep you inspired and motivated. Your association sets the direction for your life.
 Create and maintain a strong resolve to succeed by having people of like minds around you. Your character is determined by your association.
 Develop a strong sense of discretion as regards the people that come across your way in life. God sends people into your life to raise you, while the devil sends people into your life to destroy you.
