Recipe for Success

Samuel Smith


Success is just the tip of the iceberg. The iceberg itself is full of failures, hard work, and perseverance. An orchestra does not just orchestrate a nice performance on a stage. The team undergo training to correct all sounds of discord, decide on the perfect apparel to wear, and prioritize which songs to sing. The unseen preparation wins them the applause and chants. It's true when they say; "the man at the top of the mountain didn't fall there". Great men never attained success by sudden flight.

Before David could be called a champion and a mighty leader, he had to battle beasts and tend his flocks even when no one was watching. Israel saw his victory, but God had seen his sweats. Successful students, entrepreneurs, and leaders are those that "burns the midnight candle" when everyone else is asleep.

The path of success is not always straightforward—there are times when you'll stumble but you'll have to keep on moving like the horse. Behind every ripe fruit there's an extended root that never gets tired of searching for nutrients. Don't get tired of your dream and vision. "Stay awake", work hard, and keep searching for nothing but the best (Ecclesiastes 9:10; 1 Timothy 5:18). Above all, remember that without Christ you can do nothing (John 15:5). God loves you!
