Secrets of Success By Bernard Levine

Updated on February 4, 2015

You are the architect of your life

Create your own opportunities

and make things happen.

Set yourself a specific goal

and monitor your progress.

Be of service

Keep doing things for others

without counting the cost.

Turn your defeats into victories

Control your environment.

Mix with the kind of

people who inspire you.

Keep your attitude positive

and your health in fine trim.

Let God go before you

in everything you do.

Pray regularly with feeling.

Always be planning

something constantly.

You are the magnet of

your circumstances.

Never give up!

      Very Good Ideas; Particularly the idea of God going before you. Yes that's very true and the right thing to do I suppose because God never goes the wrong way.

      I am happy to vote you up on this.

      I strongly believe in personal growth and development. I believe you are the architect of your own life. When one is failing it is so easy to place blame on the surroundings and circumstances but it always comes down to the individual and the choices made. Unfortunate things do happen but they happen to all of us. It is the way you react and handle it. Easier said than done. I am still struggling with that reality. Thanks so much for sharing this, I will in turn share it with others.
