When God Changes Your Plans.

Saul was angry. He was driven by an insane rage to kill those who followed and preached Christ. He went to the high priest and asked for letters of authorization so that he could arrest any Christian he found in Damascus and bring them chained to Jerusalem. In Acts 9, he journeyed towards Damascus, with the letters in his hands and murder in his heart. He had a very specific plan in mind and that was to jail and kill as many Christians as he could.

The Law Of Consistency.

This post is a chapter taken from my book: Success Mastery.

There is power in being consistent at what you do. There is power in turning your focus on one thing and pouring your very soul into it. All through this book, I have talked about consistency in different ways.

To be consistent at what you do is to stay with it until it starts producing results for you. To be consistent is to shut your eyes to other more attractive offers and do that one thing you set your mind on.

The reason why 20% of the population own over 80% of the wealth is because few people have developed the skill of consistency. Few people have mastered the art of sticking with one thing and doing it extremely well. Few people have learned to forgo the very attractive lure of the inconsequential or the quotidian and stick to what is vital.
