Success Comes to Those That Go Get It

No one’s going to MAKE you be successful.

Think about it, whatever you do, there are people around you that do the same thing. You’re all (in many cases) doing much of the same work, making much of the same salary, and trying to accomplish much of the same thing.

No one is going to MAKE you be the best.

That’s up to you.

If you’re a Mom or Dad or husband or wife or friend or pastor or leader, it’s up to you to push yourself to be the best.

There has to be conviction on our part each and every day to not settle for second best,
to not settle where we are.

We have to rise above.
To keep getting better.
To keep striving for more.

No one is going to make us be better.

That’s up to us.

The successful people are the ones that have the conviction and the drive all on their own.

To consistently run toward the goal without stopping.

The successful people are the ones that are determined to be the most successful…

  • mom
  • dad
  • brother
  • sister
  • friend
  • custodian
  • employee
  • athlete
  • teacher
  • leader
  • pastor
  • driver
  • principal
  • secretary
  • etc

…that they can be.

Are you determined to succeed? No one’s forcing you to.

    Amen. I’ve set the alarm app that wakes me up every day to say “Do better”. It’s one of the most important messages to myself that I have.

  2. It always frustrates me when I hear people talking about how they’re just waiting for God to make them successful or the best. While waiting on God is key and important, that doesn’t mean He does all the work. We have our role to play and need to be the best we can be.
