Success by Luck?

Most of us believe the wrong stories about how to become successful. We are buying into these lies like; “you don’t need to work so hard”, “you need fortune or good luck to smile on you” “just stay positive, pray and believe” and so on and you will become successful. I guess that’s one of the reasons why so many youths have given into playing the lottery to get rich.

Agreed there is a certain amount of randomness to life, but more often success and failure are all about making choices and repeating them most of the time. Our society always like to use certain labels to describe successful people, we are told they got lucky, they had a miracle, they didn’t work that had, they just prayed and believed but while all that may be true, successful people didn’t just do only that, they made good choices and decisions.

Unfortunately today many of us are not willing make the right choices and decisions yet we want to be successful. We consider the right choices as being too difficult a sacrifice to pay now. Many of us are not willing to delay gratification; if come across little money, all we think about is how to spend it. Successful people understand that they have to spend their time on things that matter, always focusing on their dreams and goals. They face their responsibilities and hold themselves accountable. They are always willing to step out of their comfort zones and face their fears even when it will be much easier to stay where they feel safe.

They are willing to spend below their means. They are willing to stop hanging out with the boys or girls and go on their own if that is what it takes. Do you consider this too much a price for you to pay? Well remember success is a choice you have to make!

Live your greatest life

  1. This is an awesome post. That is the truth of the matter. No struggle no success. Jesus Christ took the right decision and worked towards suffering. There is always a prize to pay for any success and victory. Thank you for sharing. God’s blessings to you in the name of Jesus Christ.

  2. I like the AA saying, “Do the next right thing.” If you pile up a bunch of those. When I’m in doubt or confused, I ask myself, “what is the right thing to do?” Usually we know what we should do and try to convince ourselves that to do otherwise would be okay. But if we get truly honest with ourselves, we generally know which way to go, and what to do.
