6 REASONS WHY YOU FAIL OR SUCCEED
‘’The more you sweat at peace, the less you bleed at war” – Nigeria army.
Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men (Proverbs 22:29 KJV).
Every successful man makes effort; the result you get depends on the efforts invested into it.
Whatever you will become in life is in your hands.
Success is not for people that wish for it but people that work for it.
You are the number one stakeholder in the issue of your life.
Anybody can help you, somebody can support you, many can introduce and recommend you, but nobody can make you successful without involving you to contribute your qouta.
What determines whether people will fail or succeed?
Stage i: Vision + Effort = Success
– Success Level Determinants
What determines the level of a man’s success is the level of his efforts.
Stage ii: Vision + Level of Efforts = Level of Success
EFFORTS AND LEVEL OF SUCCESS
The following are the 6 reasons why people fails or succeed in life considering their efforts and level of success.
1) “NOT AT ALL” EFFORT: No effort is invested here; wishful thinkers only wish, hope and pray for success, no digging, no toiling.
RESULT: Total failure
How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? When wilt thou arise out of thy sleep? Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man (Proverbs 6:9-11 KJV).
2) “NOT ENOUGH” EFFORT
Here little effort is made – little toiling, little tilling of the ground.
I went by the field of the slothful and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down (Proverbs 24:30-31 KJV).
3) “JUST ENOUGH” EFFORT
Little effort is made here; feeble efforts, average input.
RESULT: Average success
4) “MORE THAN ENOUGH” EFFORT
Here more than average step is taken – extra is put on the ordinary to become extraordinary. The extra mile is reached.
RESULT: Better Success
Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured (Proverbs 27:18 KJV).
5) “MUCH MORE THAN ENOUGH” EFFORT
Here somebody is going more than extra miles. He burns the candles from both sides. He ignores his bed when others snore.
RESULTS: Supper success
Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards, build thine house (Proverbs 24:27 KJV).
For you to have a super success then increase the level of your efforts to more than enough level
6) MUCH MORE THAN ENOUGH EFFORT + GODS MERCY
The best of the effort of man can fail woefully. Strength is not enough; it takes the mercy of God to prevail.
RESULT: Super enduring effort
Make much more than enough efforts but don’t stay there; grab the mercy of God. Don’t rely on your effort, because it is not of him that runs but God that shows mercy.
So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy (Romans 9:16 KJV).
Rely totally on God while making great efforts to succeed; do your best and leave the rest to God to show mercy upon you.
