I’m yet to meet a person in this life who is not interested in being successful. It’s a human thing to want to live well and at ease. Though not everyone is prepared to do the hard work that produces a wonderful life, fact remains that every human has an inborn desire to conquer, to achieve and to progress. We all want to be successful. I cannot recount the number of times I have heard that success is more an issue of a mindset than it is of anything else because some of the great names of our generation, people who made it big in life, Chris Gardner, Mike Adenuga, Oprah Winfrey – to name a few, did not come from privileged backgrounds. This has led many to believe that to be successful, you don’t have to have come from a specific educational, geographical or racial background; but you have to think as a successful person.
In the video below, American author and public speaker Brendon Burchard shares how successful people think and how their thinking sets them apart:
The gist of his video is that successful people don’t allow their limitations to stop them. They take their current limitations, things they don’t know, don’t have and put it on their agenda as a job to do, a skill to learn, a competency to develop. They don’t wait for things to happen to them for their dreams to be fulfilled but rather, they take ownership of their lives.
Success has stopped being a mystery. We live in an information age where information on pretty much everything you need to know to make those first steps towards achieving your dreams are a click away.

We believe that finding meaning and true purpose in life begin with a relationship with God.
