Don't aim for succes if you want it; just do what you love and believe in , and it wil come naturally.
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.
Booker T. Washington
We were placed on this earth to be a success. We're meant to have a secure and abundant life. Society defines succes as having material wealth, status, or recognition. By this standard I would say that all accomplishments are not success.
Choosing the right goal, not just any goal, is the key to achieving success. The right goal feeds ambition, incentive, determination and purpose. Each of us must decide what the right goal is, but it must be a worthy one in order to achieve success.
Prepare to achieve the right goal. We must learn, study and educate ourselves and be prepared for what we propose to do. Nothing comes without preparation. Success if doing. Without energy, drive, constant propulsion, we can never expect to become truly successful.
Success requires us to be resourceful. We will constantly encounter hazards, obstacles, unexpected problems or setbacks. Being resourceful allows us to remove those roadblocks. Perseverance is essential to success, as well. It's easy to quit and become discouraged. Remembering that our goal is worthy and worthwhile can help us forge ahead.
True success comes with divine guidance. When we allow God to help us choose the right goal He will help us prepare for it, propel us forward, teach us to be resourceful and lift us as we presevere. With His help our worthy goals will become successes.
