SUCCESS. What is success? What does it bring? Where does it come from? Who is supposed to be successful, and who is not? Who exactly can be described as a successful person? What is it that one must have for them to be identified as a successful someone. What is God’s plan and desire about our success? Is success a curse or a blessing? Do people kill for it?
When you succeed in life, never look down on, mock or insult those who struggle each and every day to make ends meet. When you are still trying to climb the success ladder, never point fingers to those who already have made it. If you have made it, don’t end there, if you haven’t succeeded, it’s not the end of it. We have to live with the fact that we cannot all of us succeed at the same time. Wait for your season patiently. I believe that God knows exactly what He is doing and knows exactly why you only have what you have now. The word of God highlights that God desires not only that you succeed, but to have good success. (This book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. JOSHUA 1 VS 8). You make your own way prosperous, simply by believing and obeying God’s word.
Success has largely been misinterpreted. Well, it is an accomplishment of purpose. Success is not just a once off experience, but rather has more to do with your everyday life and where you are heading. One can have or earn a lot of money, but still not succeed. One can have a good job , still not succeed. Success is conquering fear and giving yourself room to learn something each day. In as much as we need money in our everyday life, but it is the one that actually make one successful. Why? Because it is success that leads to money, and money rarely leads to success. Before money comes, before prosperity comes, success should exist in you. I believe that even in 2020 one can still be successful without getting their hands dirty, hurting or sabotaging someone. Being true to yourself, setting plans on what you would like to achieve and making sure you always implement your plans. Perseverance creates in you the courage not to quit. Success is to never give up on something you believe you can accomplish. You don’t need to live a fake life for you to be successful. Most of the people who live fake lives to be successful are not really successful, they just look successful. Just be yourself, be positive even in negative situations. Even when you are not yet at the exact point where you want to be, celebrate the small victories you have overcome. Disabilities do not define a person’s success; it is the passion to achieve your goal that is in you.
Sometimes quantities do no define success. Any organization can succeed with only a few people who are determined to achieve the set goal. A church’s is not measured by the number of people that attend.
