When the Creator made man, He endowed him with outstanding gifts such as the power to recreate and to choose. It is important to have this understanding as we consider the reality of the powers we have. Such powers determine our fate and realities.
The Scripture’s position in Deuteronomy 30:15 literally translates to “I have given you the power to choose life and death”. Although there are a number of factors that could either sponsor or inhibit the success of an individual, man is the ultimate controller of his success. It is therefore important to understand that the first step to achieving success is to believe that achieving success is up to you. This understanding sets your mind in control and positions you to take the right steps towards achieving your goals.
HOW DOES SUCCESS BEGIN WITH ME?
HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE GIVER OF SUCCESS:
The first steps towards leading a life of success starts with developing a personal relationship with God, Who is the ultimate Giver and Custodian of success. This becomes a reality as you accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour of your life.
HAVE AN ‘I CAN DO IT MINDSET’:
It is true that man’s biggest limitation is man himself. At the start of every day, tell your inner man that you are more than enough. This self talk has a proven way of providing you with the energy you need to take on and surmount daunting tasks. Never believe or think that someone else has the key to your success.
It is on record that the majority of intending entrepreneurs, businessmen, investors, sportsmen or academics do not reach the zenith of their careers because they refuse to preserve and continue. Success is guaranteed if you would keep at what you are doing over and over again.
The secret of getting started on your journey to success is to get started. Nothing else.
There is no doubt about the understanding that the power to make and sustain success starts with you.
GO AND SUCCEED!
