I’m Victor O. Ishola by name and I will be teaching tonight on tools for a successful life. First of all I want you guys to appreciate yourselves for the works you have done so far in your life, yes it is really important that you do so.
Success is not what you have done compared to what others has done, it is what you have done compared to what you know you could have done
TOOLS FOR A SUCCESSFUL LIFE
Don’t be afraid of introducing new ideas
Confidence and Trust God
Be a person of Action
Do not be afraid of Failure
Maintain a Positive Attitude
Think Big: In setting your goals it is very important that you think big, think outside the box. The mistake many people are making today is setting their aim too low because of fear of not been able to achieve them, they are in total agreement with the limitation around them. Think Big, think outside the box. Never get feared of achieving what you want no matter what. Don’t be afraid of going outside the norm. If you can think of a better way to do something, do it that way. If you fail, try again. Make sure you do what you love.
Don’t be afraid of introducing new ideas: A person with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds.It is an unfortunate truth that those with the boldest ideas are often disregarded.
Most of us are taught from an early age to think and do things similarly to everyone else. This can be great to fill an existing role. But to truly do things differently (and all successful people did things differently), you need to think differently.
If you have a new idea, don’t throw it away because it’s new and different; instead, celebrate it. Your strange new idea might one day be the one that leads you to success
Confidence and Trust God: Confidence Comes Naturally with Success, but success comes only to those who are confident, Confidence is part of the key for a successful life. But the very first step in building confident is to believe in yourself and in what you do, always be yourself and have faith in yourself. Do not go out and look for a successful personality and try to duplicate it, many of us need to realize who we are, many don’t even know what they want, the more you know about your car the more you are able to drive it better, Self-awareness is important. With realization of one’s own potential and self-confidence in one’s ability, you can do great in life. Most important trusting God, this is a factor we must never left out in our lives. 2 timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.
Joshua 1:9 ESV
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with youwherever you go.”
Trust God from the
bottom of your heart,
don’t try to figure out
everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go, he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all.
Be a person of Action: Be ready do whatever it takes to achieve your goal. You’ll never become successful if you don’t work towards your goal in life and keep working towards it. Now think about this, looking at Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, our current way of life would simply be incomparably different if they didn’t accomplish what they did. You’re probably in this WhatsApp group on a device by a company that they either founded or companies influenced by them. All these figures were proactive, they saw ways to do things differently and did them. If they let the world shape them, then they’d simply fit into the background. Instead they shaped the world. Apply this to you?
Maintain a Positive Attitude: Replace negative thoughts with the positive ones. You need to approach problems, not as obstacles stopping you, but merely tasks that need to be completed for you to keep going. If you stay positive and think like this, setbacks won’t affect you so much, people’s doubts won’t impact you and even the biggest obstacles will seem like minor problems. However with the wrong mindset of doubt, you’ll be much easier to stop
