To attain success and make our goals in this life become a reality, there are some must have virtues. We cannot continue to live our lives without results.
Patience is one of the needed virtue to success in life. The most difficult test in life is to have the patience to wait for the right moment. One of my favorite quotes is from the bible↓
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer” Romans 12:12.
Another one says↓
“But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently” Romans 8:25
Everyone likes the shortcut and fast track to successes but usually, it does not work out that way. In fact, so many people have their fingers burnt in the process. Another favorite quote on patience is ↓
“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet ” Aristotle.
Hold on and let God.
The dictionary meaning of perseverance is the persistence and tenacity, the effort required to do something and keep doing it until the end, even if it’s hard. In simple terms, it means not giving up. We need to keep on striving towards achieving our goal, through diligence and hard work. ↓
“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him” James 1:12.
“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up” Thomas A. Edison.
“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up” Babe Ruth.
Nobody promised us that the road will be easy, so let’s keep hope alive.
Self-discipline is a trait needed to carry out our goals or attain success. Discipline is to suppress, restraint or control one’s desires as opposed to what you really want. A disciplined mind will always lead to success because most often than not, you think with your head and not your heart.
“Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day” Jim Rohn.
The more disciplined you become, the easier life becomes.
Develop yourself based on your competencies. Go to school if you have not, advance your education if you have gone through school already, take certification courses, learn a trade or pick up a new skill. Whatever you do, keep improving yourself.
“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never stop to grow”. Anthony J. D’Angelo.
No doubt we all want to succeed and succeed we shall. But remember every successful person today has a story to tell. Choose today to begin to write your story which will be shared with the generations upcoming. What would your story look like? Inspiring or otherwise? Success begins with you.
