Who does not want to succeed? Have a fulfilled life, the car and house of their dreams? Yet most people just keep on wishing, "One day it will happen, I know it will!"

Nevertheless, success is not a matter of good luck or destiny, it comes when you are ready to pay the price-sacrifice!

There are those who will persevere, but will not be constant. Their perseverance lasts just for a few weeks or even days. It is not enough to persevere.  You need to be constant in your perseverance, no matter what.

That is why we do not find too many people in the world who are successful. Inconsistent people want things to happen quickly, like food prepared in the microwave.  In 3 minutes it must be ready to serve, otherwise they will give up.

I want to highlight that those who desire to succeed, but have no strength at all, need to realise that something is not right.

You cannot think that it is normal for you to be so defeated the way you are, so weak and negative. You have no job, no money, no place to stay, cannot do well in school or in anything you want to do.

So, if you want to change your life radically, you will need help, spiritual help. Your lack of determination and consistency might be coming from a spiritual problem that affected your life from a long time ago. After going through that experience, you became pessimistic and afraid. You do not want to go through the same problem again.

This type of behaviour and a few more misconceptions can explain why you have been giving up on your dreams. Unfortunately, this is a battle that you cannot transfer to anyone else -- it is yours and you need to conquer it, but remember, you cannot do it alone. You need Jesus!

"I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing." John 15:5

So, abide in Him, seek God with all your heart and He will bless you to bear fruit (results) -- a lot of it. Start working towards changing your life, persevere and  be constant.  With Jesus in your life, you will certainly be among those who know success.


God bless you all
