5 attitudes that can actually make you very successful!
Show me a successful man, and I will show you the attitudes that made him successful. Unlike what most people think, success is never by accident, rather it is the result of conscious efforts geared towards achieving a particular goal.
One of my mentors would always say “success is a mindset; it starts from our inside and gains expression in our outside”. Have you ever wondered why some people, especially in high schools and colleges are tagged ‘destined to succeed or people to watch out for’, do you think that those people were randomly tagged with such phrase? The answer is no, those people must have at some point exhibited attitude and characters that screamed ‘success!”
Now, let’s take a look at 5 attitudes that can make you very successful!
To achieve great success in life, your attitude towards yourself should be self esteem. You are only as successful as you believe you are. People would only see you the way you see yourself. That is why self esteem is very important. Successful people are people with healthy self esteem, because you can never achieve great success if you don’t believe you can. Self esteem simply means loving yourself, and placing a value on yourself.
Your self esteem determines the kind of people, relationships and connections that comes your way. A healthy self esteem would place you in the midst of kings and queens, because nobody wants to work with someone who does not believe in what he can do.
Your attitude towards others- no man is an island; somehow our destiny is intertwined with one another. One man may have a vision, but he will need a good team to actualize that vision. That is why I laugh at people who claim that their success is self-acclaimed. Every positive message we heard, every good book we read, everybody we have met on our road to success, played a role in our success story. Therefore your attitude towards others should be that of love. It is very important we treat the people we meet on daily basis with love and kindness, because the man you ignored yesterday may have been the ladder you need to move a step higher.
Show me a business without ethics and principles, and I will show you a business that is doomed to fail. To be successful, you must learn to be honest. Nobody wants to work with someone they can’t trust. People will either shun you or appreciate you depending on your attitude towards them
Your attitude towards God- When we make God number one, everything adds up. Your attitude towards God should be faith.
‘One of the great things about believing God is found in Luke 18:27: “the things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” When you join together with him in his plan, things that were impossible become possible. What the superior man seeks is in God. What the small man seeks is in God, what the small man seeks is in himself or in others. You have not trapped God’s resources until you have attempted the impossible’-john mason
When we put God at the center of our vision, he makes everything go smoothly. Don’t forget that he was the one who gave us the vision, so we should always put him first. I love the way Warren Wiersbe stated it ‘God made us, and God is able to empower us to do whatever he calls us to do. Without faith, it is impossible to please God; faith keeps us going when we are confused, because we know that God is in charge.
In everything we do, put God first, and he will crown your efforts with success-proverbs 3:6
