Are You Determined To Succeed?
Success in business or in your personal life should be at the top of your list….always! That’s right, always. I’m not saying you should be obsessed with it. Nothing should be an obsession because then it’s unhealthy. But if you are not determined to succeed in all that you do, you will not accomplish much in life. So the question becomes, how can I be, and remain, determined to succeed?
I look back at my life. There were times I was doing well and didn’t have a care in the world. At other times I really had it rough. We’ve all been there. Some of my biggest successes were when I was really determined to succeed. Really focused for success.
I remember when I attended the Seattle Police Academy. I was 28 years old. Man I was focused and determined to succeed at the highest level possible. I graduated first in my class. I was in a zone functioning at a high level in every area…weapons, physical training, academics, high speed pursuit training, etc. It was intense for those four months or so that I was there. But I made it happen.
I realized what is possible when one becomes determined. That’s just one example in my life. Unfortunately, like so many other people, I wasn’t focused and determined consistently in my life to accomplish the things I wanted to in life. How about you?
So How Can I Be Determined To Succeed?
Being successful takes work. Anything in life worth having takes work. But mostly the work is in your mind and in your spirit. Anyone can work…not anyone can succeed at a high level. The good news is we are all capable of consistent and incredible success.
I find much of my inspiration for success in the Bible. The Bible has so much to say about success. The Apostle Paul had tremendous success in his ministry. He liked to use sports analogies when he wrote. In 1 Corinthians 9:24, 25, 26, 27…”Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run to win! All athletes are disciplined in their training. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadow boxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should”.
That’s rich in advice and wisdom! If you’re going to race, then race to win! Be serious. Make it count. He said he runs with purpose in every step. That’s focus, planning, and determination. He’s not playing around. He trains and learns what he must do to win. My friends, that’s being determined to win. That’s the attitude we must all have. That’s what being successful requires.
In 1 Corinthians 10:24 Paul writes, “Don’t be concerned for your own good, but for the good of others”. Did you know that it’s not all about you? Don’t we think that way so much of the time? My friends, we succeed to bless others. When we make it all about ourselves, we eventually fail. Be determined to succeed for others as well as for yourself.
Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 8:2, “Anyone who claims to know all the answers doesn’t really know very much”. This one thing alone is a Key to Success. And you thought some motivational modern day guru thought that one up. Proverbs 19:20 says, “Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life”.
Man this is good stuff, whether you think so or not!
Since my website is dedicated to your financial well-being, I must include another cornerstone of life long success. Although this is mentioned in other scriptures, I like the way it is expressed in Romans 13:8. It says, “Owe nothing to anyone…except your obligation to love one another”. This is probably the hardest of all admonitions to live up to.
Debt is an epidemic that most people aren’t inclined to deal with. But if you are determined to succeed, you’ve got to deal with it. Use the success principles listed here….determination, focus, getting all the instruction you can. You CAN NOT truly bless others to the fullest if you spend your life as a slave to debt.
