You have heard so much about diligence and laziness. Your success or failure in life can only be your fault. Consider what the Bible says below:
He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. Proverbs 10:4 KJV
Don’t stop aiming at the best. Go on extra mile. Perfect your moves on earth. Operate in the counsel of the Lord.
You will surely get to the topmost top.
