Joel Osteen: God created you to shine, leave your mark, and make a difference in the world. Your gift isn’t just for you; it’s to share with the world.

Quit worrying about who’s not for you.

Some enemies are designed as a part of your destiny. They’re not going to stop you; they’re going to promote you.

Keep running your race, not looking to the left, nor to the right. Not bothered by who’s not celebrating you … who’s not cheering you on.

Other people may not be able to see your gifts. They don’t know what God’s put in you. They can’t feel what you’re feeling.

Don’t let their discouragement talk you out of it.

Don’t let the fear of what they think hold you back.
