Success is a Process
Do you want to find success? I know I do. Wouldn’t you want to be the leader of something successful that impacts the lives of countless people in a positive way? This is what God greatly desires for you. Something I would like to stress is that development, growth and successful achievement is a process. Successful people often hear the phrase, “You became successful overnight!” Usually they respond, “It must have been a very long night.”
One of the most important things to have if you want to be successful is a goal. What is a goal? A goal is defined as an objective or desired result where a person not only plans but also commits to achieve an end-point in some sort of assumed development. Assumed development represents a process, and many people who endeavor to reach goals intend to do so in a finite time by setting deadlines for achievement.
A question everyone must ask is “What do I want to strive for?” We have to learn what is important and balance our priorities in life. Then we have to plan our lives in a way that will allow us to achieve our goals. If you want success you need to do what it takes everyday to bring yourself one step closer to your goal. How do you think Keith Urban became a successful country singer? He certainly did not pop out overnight. Justin Bieber is not a one-hit wonder either. He spent many years posting videos on YouTube and training his voice to come to where he is today. Now what do these singers have in common? They all had a passion to succeed. In Proverbs 13:4 we read that “Lazy people want much but get little, but those that work hard truly prosper” (NLT).
A successful happy relationship doesn’t happen overnight either. When two people get married, they quite often realize that they are very different from one another. They may come from different social backgrounds even if they lived down the block from each other. This is because they grew up with different families and traditions. You have to put into the relationship and learn how your spouse or partner understands love and show that in a way that they will accept and recognize it.
If you don’t have a clear and concise goal you will never attain any level of success. Every single person has the ability to be successful. In Deuteronomy 8:18 we read, “Remember the LORD your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant he confirmed to your ancestors with an oath” (NLT). Once you have determined what your goal is make sure it lines up with God’s word and work towards that goal everyday. Your outstanding efforts will eventually bring you to your prized goal. Remember not to give up faith. Success is a process. Put Gods Word in your heart, in your mouth, give it feet and hands and walk in it and God will produce results for a good and long life for you.
