The real blessing of success is that it doesn’t always take grand gestures to reach it.
Here’s what I mean.
Success comes when you wake up everyday and complete the basics. The basics are the foundation of success. They are simple steps that will eventually build you a staircase to the goals and dreams you have been trying to reach.
The building blocks of the basics are as follows:
B – Believe – Believe that it’s possible first. If you don’t believe that it’s possible then you will fight against yourself from the very start.
A – Attitude of Gratitude – Be thankful every day that you wake up and have another chance to at your goals
S – Strategize – Every goal deserves a plan. There will be times that you are able to fly by the seat of your pants. But when you sit down and strategize, it gets rid of most of the guesswork and the chaos that comes with along with trying to figure things out as you go.
I – Intentionality – Do every thing with the intentionality. 90% of what you do should be focused on your goals. Every task, action and thought must be intentionally focused on how it will get you to the desired goal or dream.
C – Courage – Along with Intentionality, Courage must ooze from every step you take. It takes courage to step out on faith. It takes courage to ask for help. It takes courage to wake up everyday to repeat the BASICS when other people in your life start to criticize you or completely stop talking to you. Have Courage! Be Courageous!
S – Strive/Seek – But strive first for the kingdom of God and God’s righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well Matthew 6:33 NRSV or But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and God’s righteousness and all these things will be added unto you Matthew 6:33 KJV. This one should be first really. Before you start looking to get anything else, strive after God and God’s will for your life. If God’s kingdom reigns supreme in your life…there will be no limit to what you can do or where you can go.
Cue the Basics!
