THREE AMAZING FACTS ABOUT LIFE (Part 5)

As you envision a brighter future, remember no one likes arrogant, dishonest and unreliable people. Set smart goals. Visionaries are courageous and focused. They know that there are Three ''Facts'' that are not certain. 

You must be careful when planning and cautious when you are executing your goals; because it takes courage to succeed in this delicate world. Here are the Three Uncertain Facts about Life: FORTUNES, SUCCESS and DREAM.

Fortune: 
It means; chance, good luck, fate and possession of a large sum of money. When fortune smiles on you, don’t behave like the Richman in the story of Lazarus and Richman, who lacked sympathy for the less-privileged. Remember that “the profit of the land is for all; even the king is served from the field” (Eccl. 5:9). 

"I believe that if you don't derive a deep sense of purpose from what you do, if you don't come radiantly alive several times a day, if you don't feel deeply grateful at the tremendous good fortune that has been bestowed on you, then you are wasting your life. And life is too short to waste".                                                 

                                           -Srikumar Rao

Don’t forget that “The race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong…But time and chance happen to them all.” 

Success
Means getting something done, achieving a target or a set goal. 

According to business dictionary, success is "achievement of an action within a specified period of time or within a specified parameter. Success can also mean completing an objective or reaching a goal. Success can be expanded to encompass an entire project or be restricted to a single component of a project or task. It can be achieved within the workplace, or in an individual's personal life. For example, if an individual's personal goal is to be accepted in a new career, success would occur after the individual has been officially accepted into his or her new place of employment".

Success means different thing to different people, success measured by some people on 'how successful they are by how much money they make or the people that they associate with'. According to Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, he said, 'true success should be measured by how happy you are'.

Huffington Post co-founder Arianna Huffington, success to her, is 'to live the lives we truly want and deserve, and not just the lives we settle for, a measure of success that goes beyond the two metrics of money and power, and consists of four pillars: well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving."

So, Success is a journey, not a destination. If at first you don’t succeed try, and try again, with God, all things are possible.

Be encouraged to do things that are “pure; noble, right, lovely, admirable. If anything is excellent or praise-worthy, think of such things. (Phi 4:8). 

Dream: 
This is a state of mind where things planned for the future are base on the positive thinking. 

Most people I know have a dream. In fact, I’ve asked so many people about their dream. Some willingly describe it with great detail and enthusiasm. Others are reluctant to talk about it. They seem embarrassed to say it out loud. 

These people have never tested their dream. They don’t know if others will laugh at them. They’re not sure if they’re aiming too high or too low. They don’t know if their dream is something they can really achieve or if they’re destined to fail.

Many people have no idea how to achieve their dreams. What they possess is a vague notion that there is something they would like to do someday or someone they would like to become. But they don’t know how to get from here to there. If that describes you, then you’ll be glad to know that there really is hope.

A certain proud rich man in the Bible dreamt of satisfying his heart by laying up riches for himself but he died that very night so his selfish aim came to a sudden end. Luke 12:16-20

God created you for a purpose, you are not in this world on your own will but by the will of Almighty God that created heaven and the earth to fulfil special assignment.
When you put your trust in God and plan/dream based on His purpose for your life, there is hope that you will fulfil that dream.

In conclusion, always have it at the back of your mind that, there are three facts that are not certain and the price of success, fortune and good dreams is hard-work, dedication, determination and obedient to the word of God.

God bless you.
