You want to know the secret? There are no secrets. There are also no shortcuts or fast tracks. In order to have success, you need 3 things.
Nowhere in the bible is laziness rewarded. In fact, it is made clear that faith without works is dead [James 2:20]. It’s ok to dream and have goals. In order to get results, there must be an investment. We only receive what we put in – we reap what we sow [Galatians 6:7].
This is one of the hardest components of success. There are days when I don’t feel like being an adult. Some days I don’t feel like walking my dog 3 times a day. Staying healthy is always argued. We have to be consistent with maintenance. Don’t give up. You know you would be disappointed if you settled. [1 Corinthians 15:58 ]
Developing the fruits of the holy spirit is so important [ love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.] Developing these qualities will always lead to victory. [Galatians 5:22-23]
Sometimes the road will be hard. Doing the right thing doesn’t always feel good. However, when we look back over it all – it was all worth the fight.
