Let’s begin with a question. What is success?
Of course, the answer to this question will vary from person to person and differ among corporate groups, households, and religious organizations. But whatever your definition of success is, it boils down to one definition,
“Success is the accomplishment or acquisition of an intended goal.”Dario M. Gardiner
However, as politically correct as that definition of success may be; success is more than just acquiring one’s desires. Success for us as human beings is about measuring our value and time. It’s our way of proving that we are special and are not just another number. Success fills us with pride, joy, and a sense of significance; after all, we take after our Father in heaven. When he created the world, he said, “It is good.”
If we take a closer look into the creations of the world, we would see that God the Father created this world to function through laws. With that said, success is predictable if you know the laws.
Many people believe that success is a matter of luck, which is a defeatist mindset. This way of thinking encourages widespread negative notions about success, such as; You have to be born into a good family to be successful. Or only a few chosen are predestined for success. And the worst one yet, success isn’t for everyone. For the record, those statements are false and will keep you from reaching and achieving. God the Father designed every man and woman to be successful. Truth be told, success isn’t easy to achieve, but once you know the laws, you can guarantee future success.
# 1 Know Yourself.
Knowledge of self is one of the most important laws to guarantee future success. In order to be successful in any aspect of life, information is needed and is key. Knowledge unlocks the door to success. Having information and understanding of your vision or objective and knowledge of your passions, gifts, and talents is the prerequisite for success. Finding success is easier when you know who you are and where you are going. For example. When you know your destination, you know which roads will take you there and which roads will not. Knowing yourself is the equivalent of having a road map—a map to success.
# 2 Believe In Yourself.
Believing in yourself is very crucial to success. If you don’t believe in yourself, your dreams, or your goals, who will believe in you or what you are doing? If you don’t believe in yourself. When you believe in yourself, it gives you an amazing resolve to keep persevering even when things look impossible. Believing in yourself protects you from outside negativity from dream killers and naysayers. Belief destroys doubt and makes the impossible possible. When you believe in yourself, it gives you the power to go beyond your goals and dreams.
# 3 Learn/Respect Inherent Laws and Principles.
Natural laws and principles govern our existence. If you disagree with that statement, then I invite you to break the law of gravity. Or remove all the microorganisms from the ecosystem and watch what happens. Obeying laws and principles guarantee success and make it predictable. Whether intentional or unintentional disregarding laws and principles guarantee unsuccess and make it predictable. If you learn the laws and principles of how life works, your path to becoming successful will be assured. For example, one of the greatest principles of money is to save a portion of it. For reasons such as a rainy day or emergency purposes. Another good reason for following this principle of saving a portion of your money is to have funds available in the event that a financial opportunity arises. Or that it gives you the ability to seek financial investment options.
# 4 Make A Plan.
“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!”
― Benjamin Franklin
Making a plan is essential to obtain any level of success. Planning is the first step to making your dream or goal a reality. A plan defines your goal and makes your dream visible, clear, and obtainable. Without a plan, your dream is just that, a dream. The inaction of making a plan results in unrealized dreams missed opportunities, and incompleted objectives. When you make a plan, you not only operate on faith, you take charge of your future. And construct a bridge between fantasy and reality. Nothing tangible ever manifests without a plan to give it life. A plan paves the road to success.
Example- Before an automobile can hit an assembly line, a plan of that vehicle must be drawn first. It’s the same with a house. A blueprint must exist first in order for that house to be built.
# 5 Seek The Creator for Advice On Your Life
This is the golden law of our existence. Whether you subscribe to Christianity or not, nothing happens without the Father’s authorization. We should seek the father for advice in our lives because he is the one who created us. Every human being is the workmanship of God the Father. Therefore he is the only authorized being that can direct us to our true purpose. If you want to know about a product, ask the manufacturer. Only the manufacturer can tell you why a product was made and what is the purpose of the product.
# 6 Read.
Books are literary treasures of information filled with keys to life and success. Reading informative books will open your mind to the unknown and reveal secrets. Books are resources of recorded text that can teach valuable information and solve problems. Opening up a book expands your knowledge base and shortens learning curves. Reading is so vital to success that it is the habit of every successful individual. According to reports, the average CEO reads 52 books a year.
“Reading is a success habit.”
# 7 Learn to Overcome Adversity
Learning to overcome adversity is paramount to obtaining success. Adversity comes in many forms, including toxic family members and acquaintances, failures, and setbacks. Pretty much any form of negativity that aims to take you off course. It takes the spirit of never giving up and the ability to keep moving forward to overcome adversity in life. The key to overcoming adversity is perseverance and patience. Also known as endurance. Endurance is the ability to outlast challenging times and processes without quitting. Your level of endurance will decide if you are successful or will be unsuccessful.
# 8 Consistency
For any goal to be achieved, consistency must be the main element. Consistency is the mating ritual of the ambitious that attracts success. However, success isn’t achieved overnight. Rather success is a result of patience, hard work, and dedication. Consistency is the bridge that links success to goals. When you are consistent, you don’t have to chase success; it finds you.
Utilizing the power of networking is one of the most essential tools that you can use to become successful. Networking is more than just making friends or joining social clubs. Networking is about building bridges, exchanging information, developing professional relationships, and learning from successful people who have valuable information that can bring you closer to achieving your goal.
“When you have friends in higher places, you go higher too.”Dario M. Gardiner
Success is a journey that eludes many people because they don’t know and understand the laws that guarantee success. Some people fail to succeed because they believe there is a shortcut to success without adhering to the laws that produce success. In truth, there is no easy way to become successful. However, success is predictable. And understanding the laws that govern success makes the journey easier. If you learn these laws and implement them in your life, business, or whatever your dreams and goals are, you will be successful.
