But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:13-414). We need the attitudes of Paul:
1) The prize is not yet mine
2) I concentrate on getting it
3) I forget my past mistakes and successes
4) I stretch like a runner towards what is ahead.
5) I race towards the goal
6) I want the prize!
2 Timothy 4:7-8 tells us that he got it. Will you?
