Put your heart, mind and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do. Sometimes, we are limited to do great things, not because of the environment that we have, the people that surround us or things that we have but we are limited because we LIMIT ourselves. We are limit by ourselves, but the reality is – we are limitless, we are limitless to do great things, we are limitless to achieve our goals and we are limitless to attain success, and to change the world. Yes, you can change the world; the only thing that hinders you is yourself. “GO beyond any possibilities, and take whatever the risks are.”
No pain, no gain. You will never reach success if you do not try anything – that if you do not take the risks, and if you do not experience downfall and setbacks. A thousand miles start in a single step. If you step away from the point where you are now, you are moving forward, but if you stay there – you will be there forever. You have to go out from your closet and step away from your comfort zone.
You must be train. There is no success if you don’t undergo in training. Because training is a lifelong process, for you to have a lifelong success.
In order to be successful you need to be a leader of your own fate, and leader is an ordinary person with extraordinary vision and determination. Success are define by many people, especially those people that attain and have successful life, but success can be define as follows.
Success is transition. Being a leader is being a channel, how can you say be a leader if you can’t pass the character you have learned and seen from your leader. It’s all about transferring the value that you’ve earn from your leader. It is like hearing the good news but not sharing it to another. “For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened.” – Hebrews 4:2 (ESV)
Success is endurance. Do you know how to endure the pain of rejection? In doing the ministry of God you must learn how to endure the pain of rejection because people will not accept Jesus in a short period of time, there is no instant in soul winning, you must learn and do the principle of planting. “have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9 (ESV)
Success is trust. You must put your trust in God. “I will put my trust in Him” – Hebrews 2:13 (ESV). Leading is all about trust, you must trust in the Lord and all the people behind you – your cell members, your group mates, schoolmates, classmate and officemates will just follow you. Trusting God is not easy, He will test you, to know how faithful you are to Him.
Success is being righteous. We should, or we must, as Christians walk uprightly. As a leader you must leader you team uprightly, for them to have peace and to walk uprightly also. “He enters into peace; they rest in their beds who walk in their uprightness.” – Isaiah 57:2 (ESV)
Success is being faithful. You will never gain success if you are not faithful; you can achieve success in a wrong way but let me tell you that time will come that success will ruin your life. The Lord that we have is faithful, so we must be faithful also. “…the Lord is faithful in all his words and kind in all his works.” – Psalms 145:13 (ESV)
Success is being chosen. Declare that you are chosen by God, he appointed you to be fruitful spiritually and physically, he wants you to have abundant life, he want you to have successful living. Declare that you are successful for you have Christ in you. “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellences of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” – 1 Peter 2:9 (ESV)
