Understanding Success

Success is such a much sought after thing. We learn about success from a very early age. As a matter of fact, most of us can remember the days of receiving smiley faces, stars, A’s on report card and various atta’ boys equating to success. Later in life success happens with various achievements in High School, a college degree and ultimate success is that professional job or successful career.

Over the years I have come to learn that success is not a destination, it’s a journey and successes are mile-markers on the journey. To understand success, one must understand their journey, celebrate the mile-markers and keep pressing on.

For those that are sitting on the side of the road a bit hesitant or fearful of jumping on the road of success, you must begin to think and believe that success is going to happen.

Thought is the seed, speaking prepares the soil, believing nourishes the seed and action produces the fruit.

Begin with the truth that God truly believes in you and begin to believe in yourself. Surround yourself with the right people, those that will encourage you and believe in you. Encouragement is the fuel that propels you down the road of success. Don’t get side-tracked by the problems or settle for the exits of defeat. Think it, Believe it, Receive it, Know it, Do it and watch the success mile-markers from your rear view mirror.

Do you understand success?
