If you find yourself content with the amount of success you have achieved, and feel no other need to outdo yourself then you have stopped reaching for excellence. You need to constantly work on your skills, practice them and engage them. You need to expose yourself to new things and new challenges otherwise you are simply lounging in a newly established comfort zone. You have not the war just yet. Maybe you are taking a rest from your little battles, but something bigger might come to you and you could be completely unprepared for it. Bishop Jordan wants you to be ready when enemies attack out of no where, and this is why it’s important that you get to read the “Spiritual Art of War” inspired by the strategist, Sun Tzu and the master strategist himself, God.
Surrounding yourself with the right people will keep you motivated. Those that are hard-working and driven are the people you should be around. Traits and characteristics can rub off on you.
If you spend your time with people who have good traits, you will be compelled to do the same. At times when you feel you begin to be complacent, seeing people who laze around and squander their time engaging in the wrong things will only make you feel entitled to do the same. You might think that you are better off than these people anyways so you have the license to take a rest from trying to do everything so well. On the other hand if your close friends are constantly and uncompromisingly making progress, you will want to raise yourself to the challenge yourself everyday. Excellence is not something you take a break from, it is a character that you mold within yourself so that one day it will be a permanent practice you will be known for.
