Topic: Beyond what is expected of you

Text: Eccl. 9:10

Bible Ref: Gen. 24: 14

* Don’t let go of your dream.

* Reaching your dream will require a process; it takes time, patience and persistence.

* It requires faith and commitment to get things done; it also takes determination.

* The secret of discovering your destiny, is to find something you know how to do best.

* If you don’t grow beyond limit, it will be difficult for you to expand.

* Don’t always stay at the level of ‘this is what I’m supposed to do’.

* Always add to what is expected of you as Rebecca did. Gen. 24:14-15

* Do not desire platform without performance.

* Don’t hesitate to go an extra mile.

* You should be able to accommodate those who come your way.

* Extra blessing comes from extra efforts.
