Success is possible for everyone. It is not distinguished for a select group. It is more than accumulating money, amassing material possessions or acquiring personal achievements.
Real success is becoming the person God has purposed you to be; living positive values that guide your daily choices and actions; accomplishing the goals that give your life direction and sowing seeds that empower others.
If you want to succeed, you must work your vision. No matter what your assignment may be, remember God has provided everything you need to get the job done! By working your vision consistently and courageously, you will make an enormous impact in your family and positively affect the life of everyone connected to you.
I love the quote below by Margo Jones that emphasizes success is possible if you are willing to put forth the sweat equity.
She says, “We have seen too much defeatism, too much pessimism, too much of a negative approach. The answer is simple: If you want something very badly, you can achieve it. It may take patience, very hard work, a real struggle, and a long time; but it can be done… faith is a prerequisite of any undertaking.”
Most people allow challenges to stop them from living their vision. The key is to learn from your challenges and move forward. Life’s challenges can make you stronger, give you the motivation to push through pain and prepare you for victory. Do not run from life’s challenges because without them there is no real success.
