The mentality of a successful person doesn’t mean he or she has a genius brain. If success were about brains, then I writing this piece will have created another world and even my own people; a different planet entirely.
Success is a not defined by financial prowess, or what a man materially possesses.
If success was based on these, then Bill Gates for me or Mark Zuckerberg will hit the top two for me.
Success is neither dependent on mind motivational up-surge caused by theoretical analysis.
If this were true, then, motivational speakers and writers should simply be let to rule the world.
What then is Success?
Adedeji: Success is a System fixed in a source and operated by people willing to be successful who are in tune to different units of goal as they are in one vision.
Today being Sunday in my part of the world, I will lead you into the scripture if the bible; the Word of God.
Let’s see the Message Bible version of Psalm 1:1-6
The Message Psalms 1:1-6
1) How well God must like you— you don’t hang out at Sin Saloon, you don’t slink along Dead-End Road, you don’t go to Smart-Mouth College.
2) Instead you thrill to God’s Word, you chew on Scripture day and night.
3) You’re a tree replanted in Eden, bearing fresh fruit every month, Never dropping a leaf, always in blossom.
4) You’re not at all like the wicked, who are mere windblown dust—
5) Without defense in court, unfit company for innocent people.
6) God charts the road you take. The road they take is Skid Row.”
First verse: A successful person doesn’t hang around those that deny God because Earthly success without Eternity with Jesus is poverty on the long run. Successful people run away from scorners and people who make you make feel comfortable in error and heresies.
Second verse: A successful person reads the bible, apply God’s word appropriately. No addition, no subtraction. Mingle with living Word persons.
Third verse: A successful person is seen in this allegory of a tree planted by the rivers. Surely, her photosynthesis with blossom.
Fourth verse: A successful person doesn’t condemn a sinner, rather, preaches the love of God through Christ Jesus has portrayed on the cross.
Fifith verse: If a successful person, already established, allows the interference of sinful person overwhelmin his godly paths, surely, both will perish quickly.
Sixth verse: Note, Jesus knows your paths and will reward you accordingly because He is successful and knows and Lords over other successful people.
Christianity is that system of Earthly and Eternal success.
