Somebody said, "Some people succeed in life because they are destined to be, but many people become so because they were determined to be." I love that statement, how true it is. You can also become as successful as any other person is on the face of the earth. Well it is true, I do not know whether you are destined to be successful or not but I do know that you too can reach the success land by determination and personal effort.
From the Bible I am able to gather that nobody was born poor or rich. People become so through what they do with their hands. In Proverbs 10: 4 we read that,
"He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the dilligent maketh rich."
Note that to become means to turn to something that was not so originally, meaning that he was not poor or rich, but he became whatever he is by what he does with his hands. This implies that if he is dilligent or hardworking; he will make for himself riches untold, in the same vein; if he is lazy, he will become poor. It is as simple as that.
The implication is that everyone of us was created to succeed, we will only get there if we learn how to make good use of our hands, brains,or anything God gave us as talent to profit and bless others with. Stop worrying about whether you are destined to be successful or not; even if you are not, you can be successful through determination.
So what are you waiting for? The ball is now in your court, go for it (success).
