1. INCREASE YOUR SUCCESS STRIDE
Waow! It is yet another insightful session. In this session we will be ‘mining’ from the rich depth of resources available unto only those that have the ‘seismic location’ of these scarce resources.
The scripture says “the profit (resources) of the Earth is for all, even the king himself is served by the Field”. (Ecclesiastes 5:9).
Therefore come along as we both ‘scratch the surface of the Ore, in order to expose the precious Metal’.
We will start by first establishing this truth:
Nothing relegates success faster than revelling in past glory. And nothing hinders an individual’s stride towards his or her desired future, than when he or she dwells perpetually on the memory of his or her past.
The sense of achievement that comes with a success story is a ‘wild Pet’ that needs to be consciously tame, before it destroys its owner. Don’t get me wrong, sense of achievement is beautiful, wonderful and a thing to desire; however let your achievement ‘medal’ be a thing you wear only on the day of your accolade. But ensure you stored it away the days after, as though it never existed.
The accolades that comes with success can be blinding, deceitful and can limit the strides of an individual, if he or she does not break away from its snare. This has been the undoing of most Champions and great Multinationals — one example is a once prominent mobile phone producer that is now struggling for relevance in the Tech market, because she failed to increase her success stride (don’t want to mention names).
No wonder Apostle Paul said in Philippians 3:13-14 KJV: “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before…”
Please hear this: that feat you are revelling in, and being celebrated for is a regular feat for another individual, whose target is greater feat. For instance, in sports, there are Local champions, National champions and International/Olympic Champions. Though they are all champions but they are celebrated on different stages.
This session is not intended to ‘spoil’ the euphoria you get from your achievements, rather to spur you to push for more excellent feats and never relenting at any stage of success you are; because you can do better! You are yet to make a lasting impact on humanity.
The question then is, how can you keep up with an increasing success stride to access the future?
Let’s explore into this territory on our next publication. Till then, please let go the accolade of your past achievements as though they never happened, and press towards achieving a more greater feat… and “till the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, continually seek Him while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near”. (Isaiah 55:6).
