Success is always possible for anyone who sets a definite goal and does not give up until he/she has reached it. Those who set out toward a particular goal, direct their thoughts positively toward it, act on it with persistence, face obstacles head-on, and await the fulfillment of the goal with absolute certainty in its eventual attainment always meet with success, granted that they do not give up and continue to pursue their goal ethically, on proper moral grounds, no matter how difficult the path may seem. The challenge for the individual is in keeping his/her thoughts positive even during difficult situations. Difficulties tend to force the individual to give up on his/her dreams. Therefore, only a few out of many thrive in this world because of the average individual's familiarity with giving up instead of facing challenges head on.
The path toward the attainment of a chosen goal seems difficult to the ordinary individual but certainly not to those who live with FAITH for faith is which raises one to the heights unimaginable to the majority of people. The difficulties that arise are no more than mere tests of faith. Many fail these tests and find themselves a prisoner to poverty. Thought of the individual is the key ingredient, for thought is the substance which motivates the individual, and the ones who choose their thoughts wisely for the good of themselves and their peers are always granted what they seek.
Temporary success may be achieved by those who seek to attain success by a shorter and/or an unethical route, but that type of success never endures because a person's deeds always have a way of catching up to him/her. This goes for both good and bad deeds. Good deeds compensate the individual with rewards whereas bad deeds bring about misery. This isn't just a mere statement but the truth of the laws that have been created by the one and the only Creator of this universe. Only those who are ready to receive abundance and accept challenges and difficulties of life as lessons life is trying to teach them on their path to achievement receive that which they desire the most.
Obstacles are always met by all who exist; however, the obstacles of life are only there to learn from and those lessons, if placed proper thought in, always contain a lesson which the individual needs to learn in order to grow. Those who want success in their chosen endeavor may as well remember that the obstacles and adversities in life are there to be taken as valuable lessons. Once those lessons are learned, they are to be used as stepping stones to the achievement of one's desires.
Success is attained through a strong positive mentality and absolute faith followed by action. If you do not have a positive mentality or faith that you will reach your chosen goal, you may as well not even try because that which you do not see and believe in with absolute faith, you will never receive. No one becomes a success by mere chance. If you find it difficult to become and remain positive, then you should seek the assistance of our Creator. Faith makes everything possible and the most difficult of goals can be reached through faith in their eventual realization. Most importantly, NEVER give up on your dreams and desires as they are there to direct you toward your life purpose which will bring success, prosperity, and fulfillment in your life.
