The Beginning of Success

The beginning of success is in recognizing who you really are.

Success is not a day’s job. It starts gradually, and it increases in pace in a space of time. Nonetheless, one of the first things to come to the knowledge of is to discover who you are. There is need to recognize who you are, what you are good at, and take a leap from there.

The beginning of success is in working at who you are.


Many have recognized who they actually are, and they sit down there as onlookers, not knowing the next action to take. A man is not made in a day! After the baby is put to bed, there is a need for a lot of nurturing and training before he/she grows to become a man. In that wise, a person that has known what he/she carries still need nurturing and training in order to fully become a made-man.

The beginning of Success is in recognizing who others are.

You’re not alone in the world! You need to recognize who some other few are. You have to know those who have gone ahead of you in your area of gifting. Recognize some few, make them your mentors, make them your friends, interact with them, and learn from them.

The beginning of success is in respecting others for who they are.

If you have recognized who others are, you need to respect them for who they are. You don’t criticize them, if you do, you won’t have enough time to go about your own business. Those that are to make news watch a less of news broadcasting. Those that are to forge ahead in life don’t have time to inhibit others’ action. You need to rather be proactive instead of being reactive. Two opposing forces don’t produce much work, only much of heat. And you know the effect of heat? Wasted efforts and being uncomfortable!



These principles are applicable to every facet of our endeavor in life. Even blogging! Thanks for being there for me in this space of 365 days (October 11, 2016).
