Ingredients of success



Ingredients of success

I have personally identified four major ingredients of success. In other words, for anyone to truly succeed or porosper, four things must be in place: drive, divine help, understanding of divine principles and spiritual laws, and diligence (hard work).


Let’s take them in turn: Drive It is my firm belief that there must be a strong desire, motivation, DRIVE, and willingness to succeed within anyone who hopes to succeed in life. (Isaiah 1:19) It is a pity that there are several good Christians who are simply lackadaisical about life.


They are neither motivated nor mobilized for success or challenged for greatness. They are too passive for comfort. It is the drive in you that will drive you to God for help and equally drive you to work hard and work smart. It will also drive away slumber from you.


Divine Help For anyone to truly succeed in life, God must help such a one. If God does not help a man, that man will simply labour and toil in vain. It takes divine help to make it. IIKings 6:26-27 (NLT). If God helps you, then you are helped indeed. One who is helped by heaven is helped indeed and has nothing to fear. Hebrews  13:6. This is why we must all seek God’s participation in the affairs of our lives. We cannot afford to go it alone. It will lead nowhere.


What I am saying precisely is that all those who want to truly succeed in life must recognize that God is the big Boss. We must seek His favour and His help through prayers. Jabez prayed to God and He changed things for him (1 Chronicles 4:9-10). God can help you too. Never attempt anything without God’s help.


You will be frustrated. There is a divine dimension to success. Divine Principles and Spiritual Laws There are economic principles and laws, business principles and laws, engineering principles and laws, etc. in the same vein, there are principes and laws that govern success.


To truly succeed, we must understand the dynamics of these principles and laws. All of these principles and laws must be studied, understood, and applied for true success to become a reality. There is a way to llive that will guarantee success, and there is another way to live that will end up in failure. Paul, the great Apostle of Jesus Christ, puts it very succinctly in the following Scripture passage: Remember that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize. You also must run in such a way that you will win.


All athletes practice strict selfcontrol. They do it to win a prize… so I run straight to the goal with purpose in every step. …I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that… I … might be disqualified. I Corinthians 9:24-27 (NLT). The passage is loaded with nuggets of life. Diligence The fourth ingredient for success is the diligent application of the principles and laws of success. The word diligent means “steady and earnest in application”. Diligence therefore means industry or hard work.
