No Price no Success.
First of all, i will define what success mean: Success is the accomplishment of your goal. Success is the positive outcome of your vision after you've worked it out.
If you ask anybody in any part of the world that does he/she want success? Certainly the answer is gonna be "yes". This shows that everyone desires success in his/her life.
You can not copy and paste someone else success into your life, you can only learn from them, and then tight your belt and work harder so that you can achieve yours.
Many people wants to be like that successful Celebrities, like that successful Footballers, like that successful academicians, like that successful Businessmen/women, but they don't want leave their comfort zones and pursue success, they don't want to pass through the stresses those successful people passed through. Many people want to be successful, but don't want to pay the price for success. It doesn't work that way at all. No price No success!!!!
There is no shortcut to success, if you want be successful you will have to work for it. This will bring me to the story of a young lady i read last year:
she is a Nigerian, she had distinctions all through in her high school leaving examinations, and became the best in another national examination here in my country, she was 17 years old as at that time. I also read it that she won scholarship which worth millions of dollars to study in one of the best universities abroad. Her story really interested me, it made me to do more findings about her, and i got to know she has been paying the price by studying tactically and tenaciously, she read at the right time, and it brought her the grand successfulness she experienced.
I have also read the stories of the richest people in the world, i found out that they are people who are not lazy, they are dedicated, they gave their best to achieving success, and now they have it.
PRICES YOU HAVE TO PAY TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS
✓ Set realistic goals.
Goal setting is the first thing you need to do if you want achieve success, to it will your success be attached. Don't set goal that are not real, "just like somebody saying he will build a city in a day", even Rome was not built in a day. So, set realistic goals.
✓ Hard work.
Success depends on hard work too. Without it, you can’t become successful. When i'm saying hard work, in this sense, it does not mean that you have to start doing work laboriously that make you sweat unnecessarily and then result in sickness. No, that is not what i mean. Hard work in this sense means, commitment, determination, and working aptly without laziness so that your goals can be achieved.
As you are pursuing success in life, you may get distracted, but never stay in distractions. Stay focused. Focus on your dream, focus on the growth of what you are doing, focus on yourself. One day the world will focus on you.
✓ Have passion for what you are doing.
Passion is the willing Power for what you are doing, you need to be strong and passionate about it, else, you won't achieve success in it. People may laugh at you, people may doubt you, people may say words of discouragement, but never let it them kill your passion.
✓ Persevere and never quite.
Every work has stress, no matter the kind you are doing. As a student, there are many stresses that will be encountered. As an Apprentice under a boss, you gonna be stressed. As a career person, you feel like "oh this work is too tedious". As a business person, you will feel like "this business is not working out the way i expected". Don't quite, keep persevering, always have it in mind that you have success to achieve, and very soon it will be accomplished. Always know that there is no shortcut to success.
✓ Be patient.
Patience is another price you have to pay, you may not be seeing the results now, but be patient, keep doing it, result will surely come, and at last you will be successful.
It's necessary you pray too, it opens more ways so that can achieve your goals. Almighty God commanded to pray in all we do.
Thanks for reading. ❤️💖♥️💓
Success is completely impossible if these points you mentioned are not at work. No matter the amount of prayer, if hard work it's not there it won't work. Possible the blessing will come via prayer but it has no where to land. And even if it lands somewhere, it needs connectivity of work to collect it. It's like when someone is given a cheque, the check won't turn to money unless the person takes it bank to cash
