"Commit to the lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." - Proverbs 16:3.Having God by your side will make a huge difference of the success you will endure in your future. Just a side note, when I say having God by your side I don't mean the act of holding on to a rosary whenever you go to an interview, or praying only 5 minutes before your test (if you don't pray on a regular basis). I'm talking about you're faith in God.
Anyone can go to church every Sunday and claim that they are a true follower of God. I think it is about how you act towards one another. God lives among every one of us. And how you treat your friend, mother, father, sister, brother or neighbour, is how you are treating God. If you are disrespecting someone, you are disrespecting God.
Being good to others is having God within you're heart always, and he will reward you for loving him and all his children.
Good luck to everyone out there who is trying to become someone and make their future better. Hope this encourages you all to love one another and not create problems. It is in his everlasting love that he will help you get to where you need to be, every time.
