Do you have the character to move the world? Do you have the character to move yourself?
July’s Awakening, Day 30
Perhaps there is no more important component of character than steadfast resolution. The boys and girls who are going to make great men and women, or are going to count in any way in after life, must make up their minds not merely to overcome a thousand obstacles, but to win in spite of a thousand repulses and defeats.
Let him that would move the world, first move himself.
Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. Romans 5:3–4 NIV
Your character is your driving force for propelling you ever onward with the perseverance to live the victorious life and attain great success. A thousand obstacles will certainly come, a thousand obstacles will need to be overcome. A thousand disheartening disappointments, failures, and defeats may come, but character knows that the ultimate victory may be coming up next. Character does not know quit or stop, only press on, move forward and persevere. The greatest of achievements all come about through the greatest perseverance. To move the world you must first be able to move yourself—with character and resolve and the hand of God to guide you.
