There are 3 definitions for success: 1. the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. 2. the attainment of popularity or profit. 3. a person or thing that achieves desired aims or attains prosperity. To summarize, success is when you accomplish what you set out to do.
It sounds simple. I have a goal, dream, or vision and I accomplish the goal, make reality the dream, and manifest the vision. If it is so simple, then why aren’t more people successful? Why don’t more people attain greatness and reach their full potential?
That’s where faith comes in. Most people have goals, dreams and visions, yet, they do not believe they are capable of completing them. They become a self-fulfilled prophecy and their own worst enemy by their negative thinking: “I’m too young.” “I’m too old.” “I don’t have enough money.” “I have a scarred past.”
One of the differences between successful people and unsuccessful people is that successful people say, “I can.”, while unsuccessful people make excuses. What if Thomas Edison gave up on the light bulb? What if Harriet Tubman gave up on the idea of freedom? What if Steve Jobs gave up on his products? What if Martin Luther King, Jr. gave up on his dream?
There is greatness within all of us, that includes you. In order to tap into that greatness we need to stay connected to the One who created us. He wants you to be successful. Believe in Him and He will help you believe in you and will give you the tools you need to be successful.
