Life is not a fun; life is not an adventure but an assignment to fulfill a given cause. Soldiers on a mission don’t play and forget about the mission, distracted by many things; such will be destroyed by the enemy in no time. The journey to success is always through the route called “failure.” Failure itself is not an event or an end but a means to an end. That you failed does not make you a failure until you give up trying to succeed. In the school of greatness every failure is an opportunity to do it again more excellently.
It is only a mad man that does things the same way and expects a different result. If you are currently experiencing failure; congratulations! It just means there is something new you need to discover and do differently from what you are currently doing. No man created by God is born to fail, any man that ever failed, failed of their own volition. People fail because they refuse to learn the way of success and the craft of money making which is an aftermath of value creation.
There are principles that leads to success in life, men who truly desire success don’t start by thinking about money but value. Money comes to those who created value that meets other people’s needs. Many people think success comes by luck, but luck does not bring success to anybody. No true success comes without a price. There is surely a price to pay for the success you desire. Wishing alone is not enough but paying the price is what makes the difference.
Ask any man you consider successful they will teach you the importance of hard work and determination. Success is not for the lazy minded but for people who are ready to eat the frog and do what others are not willing to do. Broad is the way that leads to failure but narrow is the way that leads to success. Majority are always on the broad way while only a few are determined to follow the narrow path leading to success.
Like every game have rules and regulations so does success. To fail and become poor one does not necessarily have to do anything. Folding your alms alone can lead to poverty, but whoever desires success must not only desire but determine to do something exceptional that will stand him out of the crowd. There is such a thing as road map to success, like a sailing ship lost in the midst of the ocean without an atlas so is a man lost in life, doomed to fail without purpose leading him on the road to success.
Success in life is not a place or a position but a journey. Nobody becomes successful and stays on a level without aspiring for further greatness and not become poor and obsolete after a while. Many times seeing young people without a vision for their lives make me sad. Seeing young people who love fun, wake up in the morning only to roam about all day in the streets, sit in the beer pallor at night, stay at the game house all day, and argue at the entertainment house all day makes me sick.
Life always presents us with an opportunity to succeed but an eye that is not trained cannot see opportunities in the midst of problems, and a hand that is not prepared cannot handle opportunity when it comes.
Preparation is the key to success, preparation makes hard tasks look simple and difficult obligation look normal. When you are prepared and ready you will always smile about what other people frown about. While others are still thinking you are already producing results; that’s what preparation does to you. Let no man lie to you, we all have the potential for success including the poorest man you know. But having potential alone does not equal success; it is maximizing your potential that brings success and keeps you ahead in your chosen field.
No more excuses, no more laziness or idealness of hands. Keep your hands busy and your mind creativity; only then can you become productive in your journey to success. Do something new today, change the way you think about life. Put on a positive mindset about yourself and what you do in your journey to success. You alone can make the difference and it all begins with a decision to be different, focused and determined on the map leading to success. Be the minority that wins all the time, minority that controls the resources of the majority population of the world, the minority that determines the economic situation and make decisions for the majority in the nation.
