Ecclesiastes 9:10,NIV “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might”
In the book Outliers, author Malcolm Gladwell says that it takes roughly ten thousand hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field. This is relevant information to anyone who desires to succeed in life. Because every single person in this world is born with a unique set of abilities, this means that if you diligently commit yourself to the training, cultivation and refining your abilities it would be of great value to the world, in turn making you a success.
Success is a function of productive use of the senses. If you are always waiting for something to happen for you or for something to be given to you or for a question to be answered for you, then you will not make much progress in life. You must commit your faculties to training and development. Find out how and why about everything in you.
Many people are stuck in their comfort zone, but your next accomplishment is just a step outside your comfort circle. You must always challenge yourself to exceed higher goals. It takes pushing yourself to extend beyond your limits to break the shell of potential that keeps you trapped at the current level. Never stop making progress, and never stop willing. Every time you try to push forward it is normal and expected that there will be push back. I have not heard one success story that came easy, but everyone that desired to be successful fought through limitations and barriers. Note that It is the man who wills and keeps on willing who wins.
Friends I tell you, there is not shortcut or substitute for the intelligent application of hard-work in the making of success. Don’t let your abilities be wasted. Within you is everything that you need to be successful. You have the responsibility to diligently mine the treasure of abilities within you.
