The road to success isn't for the faint-hearted. Sometimes, you will want to give up! Please persevere! Your journey is worth it! Many great achievers have written inspiring statements about success. We need staying power in the journey to success .In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure, Cosby once said. Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts, Winston Churchill wrote. The success starts in the mind. Mindset need good settings in order to persevere because sometimes life can be rough .It doesn't mean you are out of the game. It is a season. Failure is not final until you programmed it in mindset. Don't give up on your dream. I say to you; you destined for greatness. Why do you want to give up today after striving all the years ? Don't let situation have the final say on your dream? I encourage you to hear from people for guidelines but weigh them before implementation. It's not every advice will built you. Some advices grab them. Tell the inner man in you that you destined for better tomorrow. There is no hero without a story. Testimonies are birthed from tests. For you to arrive to that place you need to be refined. The situations around you can act as refinery, preparing you for the next assignment ahead of you. Maybe it is helping you to become a person of integrity.

The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand. Focus on your area of gift one day it will bear fruits. I remember when my first article was published in our local newspaper under letter to the editor. It boosted my genes of writings skills and birthed the zeal to continue even I wasn't getting money. First establish yourself in your area you gifted. Don't rush for money but master skills in area of interest and establish name in that area. The established name attracts money. You can be gifted but if you don't have the name it is like climbing the mountain. I encourage you first for people to recognize your voice before rushing for money.

Dream is the foundation of destiny .Every great man started with dream before accomplishment. A dreamer fights for his destiny. Don't give up on your dream. I say to you dream again. In 1964 in Oslo Norway Dr King was awarded the Nobel Prize for great work he did which was birthed from his passion to see equality in the nation of America despite your race ,color, tribe. Few people including Dr King expected that black man could actually win the Nobel Prize. It was a triumphant and an historic moment. This what Dr King said, "For the last 10days, l have been on a literal mountaintop having transfiguring experiences. We've had the privilege of meeting and talking with kings and queens, meeting and talking with prime ministers of nations, meeting and talking with the humble people of the land. l wish l could stay on this mountaintop wish l could stay here tonight ,but the valley calls me.There are those who need hope. There are those who need to find a way out. As l go back to this valley I go back with a faith. l go back with a faith that truth and justice will rise again. l go back with a faith that the wheels of the gods grind slowly , but exceedingly fine. l go back with the faith that you shall reap what you sow. With that faith, l go back to the valley." In other ways Dr King taught us about the pain and promise, renewed faith, love, courage .Let us begin with energy and hope, with faith and discipline, let us not quit until our work is done. The Bible says," Let us not grew weary in doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. "Martin Luther King Jr. never lost heart.

Pain and fatigue is part of the journey of success but giving up is not mandatory. All you need is renewed energy on that goal. People can say anything they want but never give up. Have a positive mindset. Avoid negative mindset and the fear of unknown. The real truth giants and sharks exists in the area of your interest. You need the stone of David which killed Goliath mindset. The purpose is the discovery of a reason for your existence and is defined as the original intent for the creation of a thing and your purpose is key to your passion. Your strengths of breakthrough in every area of passion is stored in your God's given ordained gifts. The passion is so important? In the Bible, we read "May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed." Your plans will be successful if you truly desire to accomplish them. The word desire denotes not a casual interest in life ,but a deep ,possessed drive for a desired end-a passion for a purpose .If you don't have a passion for something ,you won't receive it.Ask yourself ,are just existing ,or you pursuing a reason for living? You should not just do, you need feel what you're doing. Your passion continually motivates and inspires you. You need to have lifetime assignments. The truly lifetime assignment is not the accomplishment of a list of goals because goals are temporary. Truly lifetime assignment is manifested when you discover a destination for your life that is compelling that you will have completed your purpose for living once you accomplish it.Passion is a key to assignment because your desire is meant to be your destiny. The Bible tells us," Delight yourself in the lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." Our purposes and passions are the perpetual ideas, dreams, thoughts and visions that fill our hearts or subconscious minds.

The creator has "hidden" his will inside each of us. The creator places his desires in our hearts or subconscious minds and then promises to fulfill them. Your passion is supposed to come from that hidden treasure of desire that he has put within you. Sometime, it's not easy for us to recognize the source of life's passion because desires are often bigger than our pocketbooks, the level of our education, cultural abilities, our race and we figure that someone is meant to accomplish them. If you want to make it, tell yourself lam going to go after this no matter what happens. If l have to wait ten years, lam going to get it. Passionate people are "possessed" people. You can't be successful unless you have a real inner need to accomplish something in particular. You need to discover an assignment in your community, world, and generation and committed. Be willing to pay the price to obtain your desire. Passion is the juice for living as it helps us to rise above our daily routines (motivation) Passion comes from something outside the world this world and is connecting to it.

You are in right track because you destined for greatness.
