Dear Destiny Friends,
You will agree with me that nothing brings joy to the heart more than success. While success comes in different forms, it means different things to different people. Some people may see success as having good children, building a house, running a business conglomerate or raising a good family while some others might see success as living in good health, attaining personal and professional development, achieving one’s desire or goal such as becoming a professor, Governor, Minster, etc. If I may ask, what does success mean to you?
It should be noted that one can achieve success academically, financially, politically, professionally, and even spiritually, no doubt they are all success stories. One of the biggest advantages of success is the fulfillment it brings, assuming one is working on a purpose. Those who think money brings joy fail to understand that money does not bring fulfillment. What brings fulfillment is the satisfaction and joy derived when doing not only what you like, but what you are passionate about.
In the journey of life, each of us desires success, in the process, we venture into several works of life, what we fail to understand is that before you can attain success, you have to ask yourself some fundamental questions like who am I and what do you want? These are critical questions that will assist you in attaining success in life.
When you know who you are and what you want, trust me, you are fifty percent close to attaining success. For instance, if you know what you want, common sense will tell you the right people you need to associate with, the right organization, association, or platform to share your ideas with. It is just like having the right mentor who shares the same values and causes you are passionate about; you won’t need to struggle to explain your vision to them nor will you find it hard to understand their path.
Success as generally opined is hard to attain, yes, that may be true to a reasonable extent. However, I have a different opinion about success; success is indeed hard, but it can be easy because it entails strategy. When you are strategic, you’ll be pragmatic in your thought process, in your words, and in your actions; you will know how to think out of the box; you will know how to focus on your vision and more importantly, you’ll know how to relate with people.
In creating your pathway to success, you must be intentional and deliberate. By being intentional, you must know how to develop your craft on what you are naturally good at. By doing so it will be easy for people to seek your services.
Each of us has something we love; mastering that thing and replicating it for people can attract fame and fortune to you. What most people fail to understand is that your talent is the gift God gave to you to earn a living, and succeed. Your job is to horn it and find people who may need it. The mistake most people make is that they use their talent, gift, and skill as a charity. In some cases, they use it as entertainment.
So, in creating your pathway to success, you must develop your craft and become so good at it. Don’t aim for prosperity, just aim for excellence because it is excellence that creates prosperity. You may be wondering how this plays out, when you are so good at what you do, you will be surprised to see how you will attract people like a magnet because everyone likes the best of a product, no one likes a second best.
So, I will charge you today to start the process of creating your own pathway to personal excellence by working on your craft daily; you can do this by working on yourself.
In conclusion, take time to investigate yourself and ask yourself today, who am I and what do I want? When you genuinely answer the question, you can boldly say, you’re on the pathway to creating your success, and to the extent, you can’t answer the question, feel free to reach out to me. I will be glad to walk you through my self-discovery training, and your life will never remain the same again.
