It is said, life is not fair because it does not give us what we deserve but only what we demand. It is also said, “Success and breakthrough in life are possible only for people who believes and accept that success and breakthrough is possible for them.
In other words, this being a reality, one must believe in him or herself and accept that it is possible for him or her to be successful. Until you have faith in yourself and believe in yourself that those who are experienced success and breakthroughs in their lives, that they don’t have two heads and that we are not endured less by the Almighty GOD either.
One of the major reason why some had success and breakthrough in life is because they grabbed and utilized their GOD giving opportunities that came their way.
This post is therefore aimed at motivating you and as well as prepare you to be able to recognize and accept or grab your own opportunities when it will appear.
The first thing you need to do is to change your mindset or your thought about success and breakthrough. One of the reasons why some don’t or may never experience real success and breakthrough is because of their thinking pattern.
As long as your thought is dwelling on the negatives or failures and you keep giving excuses and reasons why you could not have success and breakthrough, you may never achieve real success and breakthrough.
That is why I like one popular TV comedy and the slogans of one comedian. The comedian keeps using “To be a millionaire, think like a millionaire”. That is why we are counseled to think a success and breakthrough thoughts if we are to experience a breakthrough and success in every area of our lives.
To this end, I wish that you take note of the following sayings or facts:
(1) Success and breakthrough is a journey and never a destination.
(2) Your present state or situation is never your final destination unless you accept and make it so.
(3) The background of your birth should never deter you from becoming who GOD has destined you to be in life. That is why I keep saying that your breakthrough in life is never over until it is over. It is you who determine or decide when it should be over.
It is a known fact, some people were born with a golden spoon in their mouth, and some were born with a silver spoon and some with a bronze spoon.
However, there are some who were born without any spoon at all, but they rose up and took life by force and today they are dining with a golden spoon.
Another fact that you should note is that the success and breakthrough of others are never the reason why you will not have success and breakthrough yourself.
It should never be responsible or prevent you from achieving breakthrough and success in life yourself. All is required of you is to be ready and willing to confront your mountain.
Your mountain is anything that stands your well to success and breakthrough. As you take action to confront your mountain, success and breakthrough will be your portion.
For success and breakthrough to be our portion, we stand to learn from the breakthrough and success of others for us to have our own success and breakthrough.
The following example from the Bible will prove to you that we can make it and have a breakthrough despite all odds against us. We can see the example in Judges Chapter 11:1-11. In that story of Jephthah the Gileadite,
The said jephthah was a mighty man of valor, even though he was the son of a harlot and when he grew up with his brothers, they drove Jephthah out, and said to him, “you shall have no inheritance in our father’s house for you are the son of another woman.”
The final story of Jephthah is that he eventually became a king in Israel while none of his brothers that drove him out and denied him an inheritance were never mentioned again;
From the story above, we see that Jephthah , even though he was an illegitimate child and worse still, his mother was a harlot who was so despised by the other children of his father and was chased away.
But he trained himself and became a warrior and that made him to be relevant, and because of his relevance, he was sought after when a need arises, which eventually lead to his being crowned a king.
You see, our success and breakthrough in life most often comes when there is a need and we are there to fill that need. Once we prove ourself relevant and able to fill that need satisfactorily, that will announce us to our world.
In other words, you must prove yourself relevance in fulfilling a need in our society. Individually, you should make an effort and train yourselves in order to make yourselves relevance. Once you are relevant in the society, breakthrough and success will surely be your portion.
Above all, we must look unto God and trust Him to see us through because when HIS favor is upon us, only a little effort could push us to have a breakthrough and success in life.
You should never think that you will have true success and breakthrough by engaging in things that are against God and the society at large. See you at the top. Shalom!
