These are some nuggets that will open the vista of success if they are diligently and prayerfully applied.


Jeremiah 17 v 5 – 8

”Thus saith the Lord, Cursed he the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.  For he shall be like the health in the desert, and shall parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.  Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.  For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit”.

  • Don’t ever put your trust in man

  • God may use men to help you.
  • Remember that while men may fail, God will never.

  • Fear brings failure while faith genders success.
  • If you fear to take risks, your life becomes risky.
  • Confront your past failures and make success out of them.
  • If you live in fear, it will be difficult to take bold steps that will lead to success.
  • Fear is terrible, it kills and  paralyses success principles
  • 2 Timothy 1 v 7  –  “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind”.
  • Bind and cast away the Spirit of fear from your life today and begin to walk in absolute victory in Jesus precious name.

 Romans 4 v 20 & 21

“He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded, that what he had promised, he was able also to perform”

  • Proverbs 24 v 5 “A wise man is strong, yea, a man of knowledge increases strength”.
  • John 1 v 8 & 9

“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us; If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”.

  • You cannot succeed without God.
  • God abhors sins.
  • So do not be addicted to sins
  • Sins breed failure and destructions.
  • Traps of secret sins hold one down to the bottom.
  • Sinful lifestyle is a demoter and destroyer to every move to rise to the top.
  • Sins fertilize ground for failure.

  • To succeed in life, don’t be careless with your destiny, time opportunities, spiritual life and resources.
  • Don’t share your visions/dreams anyhow.
  • Some people cannot stand your visions.  They are vision killers.

 Ecclesiastes 9 v 10

“And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin: For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.”

  • Excuse givers are failures in the school of Success.

  • Those giving excuses cannot achieve success.
  • Stop giving excuses for wrong doings. Take responsibility and move forward.
  • The excuses you give for your failure can never fetch you success.
  • Giving excuses does not make you think of solutions for success.
  • You must put behind you your inability and believe you can start something better today.
  • Those giving excuses have grasshopper mentality.

  • Giving excuses is tantamount to burying your talents.

Prov. 23 v 7

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.”

 Prov. 12 v 24

  • Remember that not everyone around you believes in your vision.
  • Don’t slaughter your success in life on the slab of wrong company.
  • Friendship is by choice and not by force.
  • For an outstanding success in your pursuit, you need to associate with those with similar vision/focus.
  • Certainly, you need people just as they will need you but you must prayerfully choose your friends.
  • Proverbs 22 v 24 – 25. “Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.”
  • May you not befriend destiny reducers in Jesus precious name.
  • Allow God choose for you. The heart of man is deep.
  2. Tim. 3 v 16

“But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.”

  • To remain of the track of success, you need to be corrected when things go wrong.
  • If you hate to be corrected, you will remain in errors.
  • Correction protects your vision, ambition and life.
  • Wise hearted people take correction while the fools despise it.
  • It is better to be corrected now than to be left alone wallowing in errors.
  • Never you see the person correcting you as your enemies.
  • Corrections are not always sweet. But take grace to swallow the bitter pills.
  • Don’t go to the wrong people for corrections. Sometimes going to your mates or peers for corrections may not augur well because you are at the same level of perception. Visit those above you in that area.
  • Prov. 17 v 10. “A reproof entereth more into a wise man than an hundred stripes into a fool.”
  • Remember that correction will bring you back to track as you journey to success.

  • Since the spiritual controls the Physical, the onus lies on you to ask God for directions.
