Word of the Day: Effort

Sep 24, 2021 | Words of Wisdom

EFFORT – conscious exertion of power; hard work; something produced by exertion or trying

The effort you put in today determines your success tomorrow. It’s just like putting on sunscreen during summer; effort needs to be applied consistently. When we make an effort, we learn. And whether it produces results or not, we can always adapt based on the efforts made.

Scripture : Psalm 128:2

“You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed, and it shall be well with you.”


“Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential.”

— Winston Churchill
