My secret to success

A lot of people know what it takes to be successful, but they fail to do it.

Jesus himself said that there would be people like this: they would read His advise, yet fail to keep it.

I think a lot of internet marketing programs are like that; they teach people what to do to be successful, but the student never actually does what they were taught to do.

They are ever-learning, yet not becoming wiser.

How many readers, I wonder, have purchased internet marketing tutorials and manuals in abundance, yet never put them into practice?

The wisest man who ever lived, said that people like this are building their foundation on the sand.

But people who read His word, and do it, have a rock for a foundation.

You can read this story in the seventh chapter of the book of Matthew.

So, what is the secret to success? (remember, you need to actually do it):

Joshua 1:7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

So there it is: the secret of my success is:

I read God’s Holy Word, the Bible, in order that I may actually do what it says.

Then, I meditate on it day and night.

Hey, reader, do you wake up every day and ask God to speak to you through His word?

Do you do what It says?

Do you meditate on the Word He gives you…all day and night?

I know you’ve heard this before. But this time, no more sand castles. This time, build on  a rock.

Matthew 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:

“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say”?

Positioning yourself for Greatness

What is the single greatest thing you need to build an online business? The answer is: faith.
Without faith, you won’t be able to believe that you are ever going to get there; that you will ever succeed. So you have to believe that you are going to reach your goal.
Now. How does someone go about getting the belief, or the faith, that they need in order to succeed? Well, the first step is in “getting a word on it”.
The term “getting a word on it” is a phrase that I used to hear pastors say over and over again from the pulpit. And here’s what it means: Getting a word on it means you dig into God’s word and you search the scriptures for a promise on what you are believing for.
The scriptures tell us that “faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”.  So to truly have the faith you need, you must “get a word on it”.
A lot of people really have trouble believing that prosperity is meant for them. They either feel
A unworthy,
B unentitled, or,
C they think that prosperity is allowed for Christians, but that it is not God’s best for them. Do you believe that? Even on a subconscious level? If any part of your belief system entertains these deceptive concepts, then you are setting yourself up…for failure.
That’s because, as a committed Christian, you are not going to accept anything into your life that you feel is less than God’s best for you.
This leads to self-sabatoge, on an unseen, spiritual level. The belief systems above cause good people to “set themselves up” or, position themselves, for failure.
If you find yourself constantly letting good opportunities fall by the way side, if you don’t make decisions based on wisdom and common sense, if you find yourself silently eschewing the blessing, then you are like the person who stands on the water hose while praying for rain.
Almost 100% of the people I counsel know exactly what they need to do to be successful. But for some reason, they keep talking themselves out of it.
In my new ebook “Positioning yourself for greatness” I abolish all of these false mindsets, and lead you into the truth. It’s a great read. Order here.

How to Achieve the Miraculous in your life

Positioning yourself for greatness

Before you can achieve anything great or miraculous, you must position yourself to receive it. But you can only do this when
you believe that the thing are you are believing for is God’s will for you and
you believe that God can help you achieve these things.

Positioning yourself for favor

We can’t expect to receive God’s favor if we are not living a righteous life.
Psa 5:12 For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

Trust is the key to positioning yourself for favor. Listen to what the scriptures say concerning this

Isa 57:13

When thou criest, let thy companies deliver thee; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that putteth his trust in me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain;

Believing and receiving

With everything I just wrote about getting favor in your life, you might think that it all boils down to a series of formulas which need to be perfccted. But how about this one: Why not try simply asking your Father in Heaven to bless your business? Most of us have heard of this verse: Ask and it shall be given. Is it really that simple? Can I really ask God to bless my business? Consider this verse:

1Ch 4:10

And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
