Reaching Success

Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.  Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.  Psalm 37:4-5

So what is the key to success in your life?  And how do you get there?  To be successful in life is usually not by chance or just having really, great luck.  To achieve success means working hard and having many failures along the way to get to your goal.  Therefore, imagine if you NEVER had to work to get to your goal (everything was passed down to you), you never had failures along the way and you went straight to having all that you desired without working for it – do you think that you would mentally be able to handle this instantaneous success and knowledgeable enough to know how to stay in it?  It could be difficult because without you failing from time-to-time before the success or never having to work to achieve the success, how would you know what will work and what will not work to keep yourself successful?  It’s just like receiving a huge business inheritance from a former owner that use to own the business and the inheritance dries up quickly or the business fails because the recipient never ran the business therefore lacks the knowledge to run the business.

So the key to being successful (and staying successful) is through works!

Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.  Proverbs 16:3
