Conquering One's "Worst Enemy"!

Tired of getting entwined in a vicious circle of making New Year’s resolution comes year-end time, and betraying the same as soon as the ensuing year rolls on, I finally made up my mind and decided to come up with a Personal Lifetime Commitment of a "Sinner then-saved now-by-Grace".  Sounds sublime and mystical, all right!  But, thank good Grace, I realized it's the only recourse to get rid of the "year-out-year-in" cycle of illusive day-dreaming.


I’m taking the pleasure of reproducing for this blog an improved outline of the thought flows of "My Lifetime Commitment to my Self" which I delivered in a privilege speech before an audience of some twenty Co-Independent Entrepreneurs during our seminar-workshop on "Leadership-in-Action" held not very long ago at the Country Home & Convention Center in my native town, now a city – Gen. Santos:


1st  :  I believe, I am made alive for a

         purpose-driven life.


2nd: Therefore, by Grace I need to make

        the most of every good opportunity

        that comes my way.


3rd:  And that, I must be positive and

        forward-looking in my pursuit for the

        best and finest values in life.



4th:  That I should not postpone doing the

        good things that can possibly &

        reasonably be done today.



5th:  That I need to constantly &

        continually praise, thank, and pray to

        Father God for Enlightenment,

        Guidance, Strength, Courage, and

        Wisdom to overcome life's

        challenges along the way.


6th:  That I should live a meaningful,

        purposeful, functional, productive,

        fruitful, rewarding, & fulfilling life in

        the now and here onward.


7th:  And finally, I look forward yonder

        through the eyes of Faith, with

        certainty of Hope & greatness of

        Love to commune in person with my

        Savior, Master, Lord & King in that

        blissful place of Eternal Abode He

        promised to prepare for all His

        faithful Ones.


Friends, like it or not, day-in & day-out in the natural world, you and I may be confronted with various forms of challenges coming from the outside.  But, I think the toughest of all challenges, or enemies if you may, comes from within.


Making and upholding a lifetime commitment to oneself is one practicable and effective stratagem to ensure victory against one's worst enemy - Our "baser self".


Be of GOOD COURAGE!.....Have a victorious and blessed New Year-round journey from glory to glory to greater Glory!    Bless you!
