You were created to succeed, but whether you accomplish success is up to you. The universe is filled with treasures and you are one of the treasures planted on the universe. But there are hidden treasures that will help you accomplish greatness in life. You need people, wisdom, and knowledge. Embedded in knowledge are pieces of information that will help you develop skills, sharpen your talents, and improve your relationships.
Have you been searching for secrets to success? Before you travel far, let me give you this piece of advice, make use of these three points, and see what happens to your life:
1. Preparation- start now by developing and enhancing what you have. It could be talent, skills, ideas. Whichever field you belong the journey to greatness starts with a decision. Decide to start preparing your self for that big picture with a little step ahead of doing nothing.
2. Hard work – wishful thinking won’t deliver anything to you than dreams without reality. You must be diligent by putting to use your mind and body. Start working on your vision now. Manage your time well, make out time to connect with people that can mentor you, and influence you positively. There is a lot to do with your mind and body and now is the time to start.
3. Learning from your failure- gather as many as possible information from your past mistakes and failures. Acquire quality knowledge and don’t just acquire knowledge but act on the information you get. The essence of learning is action.
Life comes with opportunities and God uses such to propel people to greatness but when an opportunity comes and you are not prepared, you miss the opportunity and when you are prepared, you grab it. But without hard work, you can’t go far and it gets worse when you are not a learner who consistently learns from failure in order not to repeat the circle and consistently learns from success in order to repeat the circle.
The only secret is to prepare yourself for what you desire, work hard at it, and never stop learning.
Years back, the co-founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg got a business opportunity and invited five of his friends to come over to his place but only three showed up. Now the three that met to discuss the business opportunity with Zuckerberg are billionaires now. The other friends who didn’t turn up for the meeting are far from the circle of billionaires today because they missed their opportunity. Your opportunity for greatness may come from any angle, don’t allow pride to limit you from accessing your treasure. Be open-minded and humble as you prepare yourself for the top.
See you at the top.
I celebrate you.
