The keys to success in life

12 Keys for Success in life

Know your purpose. It is very important to know why you are here on earth. You were born for a specific purpose until you find out what that purpose is it is going to be very difficult for you to be happy and fulfilled. Your success is tied to your purpose on earth.

Document it on paper. Once you know your purpose, document it. It is very important to write it down because if you do not write it down on paper it is not going to be real to you. Put it where you are going to see it every day before you sleep and let it be the first thing you look at when you wake up.

Plan to lay down: You already have a vision it is documented on paper. You also need to document the execution plan as well on how your vision is going to come alive. What resources will it need and how are you planning to get those resources

Believe you have the ability to fulfill it. Have faith that inside you, you have the capacity to fulfill your mandate. It is very crucial as you will constantly be discouraged by people and the environment. You will knock on the doors and they will shut in your face. It is very important to be convinced that you can do it.

Submit to the right environment. Nourishment is very important, ensure you nourish your mind with books that are relevant to your life purpose, people you hang around with are very important, don’t hand around dream killers. If possible find a person who has been where you were and have become successful and let them walk you through their journey. These people are called mentors, when the going gets tough you will need to be able to bounce ideas to them and they will be able to tell you to press on. The environment is very important as it must be nurturing for your purpose.

Feed on the right materials. What are you fertilizing your soil with? What are you feeding your gift with? You cannot afford to eat anything that will kill your gift. Check your diet.

Give your gift time to develop. Be patient with yourself, give your gift time to develop. Do not rush to the market place while still underdeveloped. You will know when you are ready.

Persist under pressure. The pressure of your life tests the reality of your gift. If it is real you will be able to persist under pressure. You are not going to give up easily. Your purpose is able to carry you through any difficult situation. Giving up is always not the option. Persevere to bring forth your gift.

Serve your gift to the world. Give it away free. Do not rush to be charging money. Let the world get it for free. It is amazing what the will lead to. Give your gift to your community for free, you will never know maybe one of the community members is a CEO he/she will locate you one day and say go and do what you did in my company we will pay you. If you give it away it gets exposed. You must be serving your gift, let the whole world know if without worrying about money

Produce seeds. Produce people better than you, your gift is for the world. You also have a role to mentor others and produce people much better than you to serve their purpose on earth. Do not neglect that part. Be always helpful to others and offer guidance where you can.

Right people around you. Surround yourself with QOP = Only Quality People. This is very important that you surround yourself with people who want to grow. Not people who feel they have arrived. You also do not need negative people around you who will always tell you 100 reasons on why you cannot do what you can do. You need people who are going to be brutally honest with you. People who are going to keep you accountable for your progress as well in your goals.

Pray over your gift every day to the one who gave it to you to manifest it. Lord refine it. Let me see this purpose. What are you doing with this message? You need wisdom and guidance in everything you do. Keep relying on God to carry you through this journey
