There Are Misconceptions About Success

There are some common misconceptions about success: (1). We Think success is impossible so we criticize it. We desire to believe life should be easy, so we assume anything difficult has to be impossible. When success eludes us we throw in the towel and say, "Who needs it anyway?" Someone we consider less deserving than ourselves is successful we get totally upset. (2). We feel that success is mystical, so we search for it. There is no such thing as an overnight opera sensation, You do not win an Olympic medal with a few weeks of training, do you get the point?  There are no shortcuts; you must be willing to pay the price. (3). We think success comes by chance, so we hope for it. We sometimes say, "Oh he or she just happened to be in the right place at the right time." The actual chances of that happening are about as good as the chances of winning the lottery - 18 million to one. If you are very serious about succeeding you will agree with the small-business owner who posted a sign in his store window that read: "The 57 Rules of Success: Rule one: Deliver the goods. Rule two: The other 56 do not matter!" Paul in (1 Timothy 4:15) shared his formula for success with Timothy, and its one that works in all areas of life: "Be diligent in these matters, give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress."
