When you wake up each day, God has given you another gift. You get to decide what to do with it.
Will you use it to achieve something great? Will you use it to work with excellence? Will you hustle to match every bit of intelligence God gave you with hard work?
Hard work and excellence are how you uncover opportunity.
The problem with coasting is that you don’t see the opportunities you miss. Your opportunities become driftwood - floating silently by your life unacknowledged, unnoticed.
You won’t know you missed out on a promotion. You won’t know you missed out on a personal connection. You won’t know you dinged your reputation. Because those things are never told to you. They just happen to you.
Hard work and excellence are how you uncover opportunity. And a grateful heart for everything your creator has blessed you with can drive you forward.
