Where you are pleased with yourself, there you have remained. Keep adding, keep walking, keep advancing. (Augustine, 4th & 5th century Christian theologian)
Self-satisfaction can be a limiting attitude. It’s good to be pleased with our work and accomplishments, when we’ve done our best. But, as Augustine suggests, we should never be satisfied that we’ve done all we can. To be the very best we can be and to achieve the very best we can requires continuing effort to move forward and to improve.
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me (Philippians 3:14).
