Are you fit company for the person you wish to become?
Most of us desire and wish for self-improvement. One of the most effective ways to strive and achieve is to begin acting the way you want to be right now. Ask the Holy Spirit to not only guide your goals, but to motivate your actions to be consistent with them.
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.
