It’s a simple formula; do your best and somebody might like it.  —Dorothy Baker—
We’re never guaranteed success by others’ standards. However, if we do our best according to the standards we

think God has in mind, we’ll be successful. And from God we’ll always receive unconditional love and acceptance.
In the past many of us were haunted by fears that our best wasn’t good enough. And not infrequently those fears hindered our performance, thus validating our fears. We can slip back into those immobilizing fears if we don’t

attend, with vigilance, to the program and its suggestions.
Our higher power will help us do whatever task lies before us. And no task will be ours except those for which

we’ve been readied. Our job is simply to go forth, taking God as our partner, and set about completing the task. We

will not falter if we remember where our strength rests, where the guidance lies.
Self-esteem is one of the byproducts of a job done with God’s help. An additional byproduct is that we learn more quickly to rely on God’s direction and strength the next time, thus reducing the time we give to fear.
I can be successful today, in every endeavor, if I let God manage my moves.
