Today I, ____________________, commit to work hard to achieve my goals.
“Do your best in your Church callings, schoolwork, employment, and other worthwhile pursuits.” – For the Strength of Youth
Try to think of a specific way that you can do better in your Church calling, schoolwork, employment, or other “worthwhile pursuit,” and set a specific, measurable, and attainable goal to accomplish it.
“We well could pay heed to the Lord’s divine instructions when He declared, “Wherefore, now let every man learn his duty, and to act in the office in which he is appointed, in all diligence.” He added:
““For behold, it is not meet that I should command in all things; for he that is compelled in all things, the same is a slothful and not a wise servant; wherefore he receiveth no reward.
““Verily I say, men should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness;
““For the power is in them, wherein they are agents unto themselves. And inasmuch as men do good they shall in nowise lose their reward.”” – Anxiously Engaged by Thomas S. Monson
