If Your Were Guaranteed Success What Would You Need to Move Forward?


If you were guaranteed success in building your business, your ministry or your organization, what would you need to move forward?

The first thing most people would say without thinking is money. But if they were to ponder just a little harder, they would realize money isn’t really the answer to the equation.
Think about it, guaranteed success, and no area for failure whatsoever. Whatever you have in your heart to accomplish would not only come to pass but it would touch many lives, and you could bless others with your wealth.

There would be no reason to fear and no reason to doubt. You would go about your day, every day, with confidence and with an attitude of boldness, as if to say, I got this! This is my domain!

This type of thinking sounds wonderful doesn’t it? Don’t you wish that it could be just like this? Everything simple, rose colored and e-a-s-y? Well, it is possible. It really is.
One of the definitions for the word success is “favorable or desired outcome.” However, I like to think of success defined in this manner: a succession of daily practices; baby steps that leads to an individual having a favorable or desired outcome.

In order to accomplish what God has favored you to do you will have to work towards it. Some opportunities He will open doors for you, but most will require blood, sweat, tears, hard work and much faith. You are guaranteed success, if you do it His way, not yours.

If you were to be honest with yourself, what would you say is lacking in your life to carry out what you truly desire to see manifest? In other words what do you really need to “do this thing?”


Would you need guidance? What about support, patience, clarity, commitment or faith? Would you need systems, ideas, strength or health? What about mental stability or emotional well being? Would you need mentors, better time management, a support group, prayer warriors, or encouragement? What would you need?

If you were guaranteed success and you knew you could not fail what would you need to take your business to the next level? What would you need to develop that new idea, spread the gospel, open that door, or write that plan? What would you need?

Are you really ready and willing to have what you desire? Are you ready and willing to leave the old way you think behind and replace your fears and doubts with faith and a can do attitude?

A lot of questions have been asked of you, now it’s time for you to answer them. Get out your little journal book and start looking deep within yourself.
You and only you know what you need to get moving. It is time for you to move from the windowsill of waiting and pondering and self-doubt. It’s time for you to step into the soil of possibilities. You cannot accomplish anything without first trying. If you fail, TRY AGAIN!

Stand on God’s promises and know that His promises are true.

Be Blessed!

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Joshua 1:8

To Your Greatness!
