HAPPY 2013; Commitment is the key to a successful life

Whether you go into a relationship, marriage, worship, business, teaching, service, or any adventure, your success in 2013 will be determined by the faith you have, and your commitment to the venture. 
 

If you go in with an attitude of trying out, more than likely the following will happen. A few things will go wrong, or hurdles will come up, and in response you shake your head and say, "I knew it was not going to work out". What do you do then? Instead of making it work, you will be spending your energy back peddling, and finding "reasons" to back out. Indeed, it is time to ask, "If I fail myself, why should God and others give me a pass?" You have to have faith and commitment to succeed. 
 
On the other hand, if you are committed, when a problem surfaces, your attitude will be, "Well, I am Mario of the Game, these hurdles are a part of the game to get to the end point, I am supposed to pass all these hurdles, knock the monsters and overcome the difficulties to get to my point." As you get beat up on the path, but also beat the odds and cross the hurdles, you cheer, and say to yourselves, a few more to go... the energy to succeed builds up to pass through the rest of the hurdles to reach the end point and win. I have watched my kids play Mario and have learned quite a bit.
