If You Want to Succeed, Have the Faith (Part II)

This is part II of my blog series on “Succeeding in Life”. Part I of my blog series I talked about succeeding by reaching out to others. Successful people dread rejection too, but they believe their goals are worth it. There are two kinds of people in your life: 1. those who already know you have something they need; and 2. those who do not know yet. Start a “people list” to reach the people who do not know about the services or products you have to offer them. Use your network of colleagues and friends, who know about your product or services, to reach the “unknown customers”.

In part II of my blog series on “Succeeding in Life”, I will be discussing why it is important to believe and have faith in your own success. No one else will believe in your success as much as you do and no one will give you the drive to succeed but you. You have to have the faith to know that you are already a success and no matter what anyone else says, you will be successful in everything you do. Some people define success as how much money you have in the bank, how big is your house, the type of car you drive, or the type of clothes you wear. But, “true success” is doing something you love to do and making a living at it. Materialistic things come and go, but “true success” is based on how you benefit and increase the lives of others.

For me, “true success” in my life and my business, comes from my belief and trust in God. Not everyone may have the same beliefs as I do, but faith in anyway manner in your life is helpful to success. Happiness brings success and not vice versa (success brings happiness). Here are seven life-changing truths you need to learn to succeed in life:

  1. God will come to where you work and help you.
  2. When what you are doing is not working, God will show you a better way.
  3. Even though it may not make sense at the moment, do what God tells you.
  4. The success God has in mind for you is greater than anything you can envision for yourself.
  5. Your existing systems may not be able to handle what God has in mind, so be willing to change how you do things.
  6. When you experience His goodness, you’ll fall at His feet and acknowledge Him as your Lord.
  7. When you realize what God has in mind for you, you’ll leave everything and follow Him.

No matter what your beliefs are, to succeed in life you must have faith in yourself and know in your heart that no matter what you will succeed. Despite, any trials or tribulations you may go through, never give up and move forward with your dreams because they will come to true.
