The Path to Your Destiny!

“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.” – Bill Cosby
Ambition is the path to success and persistence is the vehicle you arrive in. Life is full of challenges, that’s a given. It is your desire to succeed that keeps you going. Let me share with you four steps that will help you become the person you were born to be:
1. Revelation
Revelation is the knowing, the illumination of what you need to do. That comes through in two ways, first from God and secondly through observation. Think of a house whose lights are switched off and you have no idea where to find the keys to open the door to your destiny. Revelation is like the lights coming on, the illumination in this dark house, which suddenly allows you to ‘see’ the keys for you to open the door leading to your destiny.
2. Conviction
This is unshakable faith that something will work no matter what. Something that even death cannot scare you from pursuing it. Dr Martin Luther King Jnr said, “A man who is not ready to die for something is not fit to live.” Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko, Mahatma Gandhi and many other men and women of substance are true examples of conviction. The moment you look at them as examples of what is possible for you rather than exceptions, your life will start to have a meaning.
3. Movement
This is a directed and focused action. Once you have the knowing and the conviction of what you must do, you don’t waste your time and energy focusing on trivial and irrelevant things and activities.
4. Persistence
This is commitment. This is doing what you said you will do, when you said you will do it whether you like it or not. It is not about what people will say, not about how you feel, not about the weather condition and so on and so forth, it’s doing what must be done, period.
The reason most people are lost is simply because they are working in the dark room and they don’t have and can’t see the keys to open the door to their destiny. I suggest you invest in finding the light, the illumination that will lead you to the subsequent steps. These four steps are a reason you are reading this article right now, simply, without these steps, I wouldn’t be the man I am today.
