Greatness is what everybody desires in life, but few people were able to reach that milestone. What prevented others from soaring to the same level with the achievers was their thought. Your thought plays a vital role in your success.

People with negative thinking always remain stagnate in life. Any action you take emanates from your thought. Positive thinking, transformed into positive beliefs, can be powerful in shaping our life, mind, heart and character.

Success emanates from failure. Any successful person once swim in the deep sea of failure and disappointment but they didn’t allow it to stop them rather, they manage and turn things around. They transform failure into success. They didn’t use failure as a reason why they couldn’t accomplish their goal; rather, they used it as a force that propels them to accomplish their goals.

Failure is what makes one resilient. When you are resilient you can soar to any height in life because once you set up a goal, you must surely accomplish it. No matter any obstacle on your way.

This book is a great motivator that can help you to climb the ladder of success. In this book you will realize that you are the only one who can stop yourself. You cannot finish reading this book and remain the same. It is a great transforming book.

Some people thought that because of their physical disability that they cannot do anything, thereby living at the mercy of those who will render assistant to them. Some of them are even proud of their disability so that they can beg for alms. This book will re-position your mindset and make you to start seeing the ability in your disability that you can use to affect the world positively.

This book reveals some secret that can help you realize your goal. You can start failing only when you stop reading. Some people say that the greatest wealth is found in the burial ground but I assert that the greatest wealth is found in the book. The numbers of books you read determine the level of your knowledge which also determines the level of your accomplishment in life.

Chapter one of this book treated the important of decision making and hard work as the bedrock in realizing your goals. There’s a correlation between decision and action. Decision without action is like a car without a fuel. Action is an energy that propels your decision to accomplishment. Without action your decisions remains just a decision. This chapter also contains some motivating stories that can awaken the giant in you.

Chapter two treated the effect of your belief in your life. The level of your believe determines the degree of your success. For instance, for you to lift a load of 10N weight, you must apply a force that is more than the weight of load without which the load cannot be lifted.

Likewise your belief, if you want to accomplish any goal, your belief that you can do it must be more than the goal that you wanted to accomplish, that is what will keep you moving despite any odd you may encounter in the process of accomplishing those goals.

Your beliefs are your thinking patterns that have builds over the years to form a mental picture of what you think is factual. Your beliefs defined how you react to something, how you perceived the world.

You can use your belief to attract success in your life. You can use your belief to change that ugly situation in your life. You may say; how? But through reading this book you will know how.

Chapter three unveils the key of success. What that distinguishes the successful people from others are their abilities to realize the right key that can unlock the success door. Without using the right key your door cannot be unlock.

Chapter four look upon the tools that can help you to achieve your dream. This is a life changing book. I wrote this book specifically for those who claimed that due to their physical disability that nothing good can ever come out from them, but that is not true. It is their poor thinking that makes it so. Once you reposition your mind and start being positive, you will forget your disability that posse’s barrier to your success.

For those who do not have any disability, this book will re-structure your thinking and also give you the reason why you must strive for your goals. Everything is possible for those who believe

Chapter 1

Unveiling the power of decision in achieving your goals

The power to succeed or fail depends on your decision. Success has its own principles likewise failure.

If you really want to succeed in life, therefore you have to identify with the principles of success. Great people used these principles to distinguish themselves from other people.

The reason why many people still remains where they are, is due to their inability to take a decision that can change their life. For you to accomplish any task, you must decide from your subconscious mind that you want to accomplish it..

Decision plays a vital role in our life, business, family, relation, and organization. Even in our belief. That you are serving God is by your decision. God gave us a free will to decide.

As a student, for you to have a better grade in school you must take a decision to study ahead of exam. But if you procrastinate, you will end up in frustration and poor grade.

Ray T. Bennett says, “You are not the victim of your world, but rather the master of your own destiny. It is your choice and decision that determine your destiny”.

It’s the kind of choice that you make that will determine the levels of your accomplishment. What you will become tomorrow depends on the decision you make today.

There’s a correlation between decision and action. Decision without action is like a car without fuel. Action is an energy that propels your decision to accomplishment. Without action your decisions remains unaccomplished.

Don’t be afraid to make a move towards actualizing your goals. Starting is a great move towards accomplishment. Pele says, “Success is not accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you’re doing or learning to do”.

It doesn’t matter how little you started, starting is a great key towards accomplishment. Israelmore says,” Every big castle was once started with a single block, despise no small beginnings. A little step taken every day build up the hope of greater accomplishments. Do something every day”. We often find it difficult to start because of fear of failure. Stop accepting failure as a mindset.

That you failed before doesn’t mean that you have failed forever. What failure depicts is that it can’t be done that way that you should try other ways. Thomas Edison who invented light bulb fails 1000 times before he succeeded. But when he was asked how many times he failed. He answered that he doesn’t failed 1000 times rather he lent 1000 times how not to do it.

Great peoples don’t fear failure rather they learn through it. Great people don’t wait for inspiration for them to start something because inspiration comes during the process of working

.Chuck Close says, “The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who will listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for armatures’ the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of process; they come out of the work itself. Things do not occur to you if you are sitting around trying to dream a great idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something else will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you need to work and I find that is never almost never the case”.

Are you still waiting for the cloud to part before you start? Or what are you waiting for? There’s a great potential in you that still untapped. You can never be fulfilled unless you tap that potential. It’s only through work that your potential can be activated. Work is potential activator.

Let money not be the reason why you have not started. You can ask yourself a certain questions like; what can I do now with what I have where I’m with where I’m going to? I believe that as a human being, you can manipulate your believe, your believe is a construct. Shakespeare says, “Nothing is good or bad, you made it so, by what you see consistently”. So, you can construct believe of success or failure it all depends on you

Bassey Johnson opine that, “Governor were once minor, president were once resident”. No one was born a governor or president; it was through hard work and perseverance that they all got there.

Donald Trump says, “Get going, move forward. Aim high. Plan to take off. Don’t just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won’t happen. Change your attitude and gain some attitude. Believe me; you will love it up here”. Great achievers don’t allow obstacles to hamper them from reaching their goals.

Everyone has times in their life when they feel de-motivated, lost and unhappy. You’re in a rut and you don’t know how to get out of it. Despise all the odds; just have hope because you’re heading towards greatness

Try to remove from your mind the previous mistake or trauma that has bothered you for a long time, handle it and keep on moving. Scripture says in Philippians 3, “Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do; forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lie ahead. I press on towards the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ. So forget what’s happened; focus on what’s ahead. Press forward to that highest mark”.

Bible made it clear that remembering the past can be injurious in our life. Remembering your past mistake or failure can hamper your vision. It will make you to crawl while others are running. It can mar the activation of your mental resources. And when your mental resources have been feeds up with the negative thought, the accomplishment of your goal suffers.

What do you really want to become in life? Have you ever think of it? Or are you myopic? Some don’t even know what they want. Some believe that wherever river carry them go becomes their home. It’s wrong perception of who you are

.You can’t receive what you didn’t plan or work for. It’s only by divine but humanly speaking it’s impossible. To accomplish your goal, proper planning and hard working are inevitable. Ecclesiastic 9;10 says, “Whatever your hand do, do it with mighty”. Diligent worker never miss their target. They always win.

Solomon warned the danger of being a “sluggard” (prov.13:4; 26:16). A sluggard is mentally and physically lazy individual. A sluggard continually procrastinates, putting off until later what should be done now. (prov. 20:4). A sluggard stays up late, sleeps in late, and is always running late for school, work, and appointments (prov. 6:9). Sluggards are about as easy to motivate as a sleeping elephant. Sluggards will always lack and never and never make their financial end meet. They are people who always dream about doing, having but never do, have or get (prov. 13:4). The way to defeat slothfulness is to develop diligence. – Perry Stone.

The life of ants always impresses me, though small organism but hardworking. Ants are very intelligent and skillful organism. Harun related the life of ants to that of human being in his story titled “the world of our little friends, the ants”

Ants have more of their own kind in this world than most other living creatures. For every 700 millions ants that come into the world, there are only 40 new born human beings. For other words, the number of ants in the world is far away above the number of human being.

Ant families are also very big. For instance you probably have a family of 4 to 5 people. In ant family however, there are sometimes millions ants. Now think for a minute. If you had millions of brothers and sisters, would you be able to live in single house? Surely not!

The astonishing features of ants do not end here. Despite the fact that millions of them live together, they have no problems with each others. No mix-up and no disorder. They live in extremely well planned life with every one obeying the rules.

Some ant families do tailoring, others grow their food like farmer, and yet others run small farm where they raise some smaller animals, in some way as human beings breed cow and use their milk, ants breed small lice (aphide) and use their milk.

If an ant as insignificant as it’s can accomplish those task. What of you human beings who have everything at YOUR disposal. The only work you have to do is to exploit what you have and get what you want. Gospel Julius says, “Work is the key to your personal progress, productivity, and fulfillment. Without work you can accomplish nothing”.

He continues, “The responsibilities God gives you are presented to provoke your potential and to challenge you to try new things. Until you stop being a reluctant worker, you will miss the vitality and meaning that God intended work to bring to your life”.

Bees are small organisms but produce one of the sweetest things in the earth. What are you about to produce? What do you have in your mind now to produce? Are you afraid to create your own life? It doesn’t matter how you started. The most important thing is to start. Israemore says, “Strong enough to make holes in the rock are tiny drops of water that persist to fall. Persistence

is the attitude that breakdown mountains one rock at a time

The only road to greatness is through hard work. Great people are problems solver. The world is suffering from wanton challenges. World is looking for someone who can proffer a workable solution to its contemporary challenges. There’s economic challenges, environmental challenges, political challenges, religious challenges, and others social challenges bedeviling the world.

You may have the solution to the problem, but you refused to come out with it. Never allow fear to subjugate you. Take a decision and balance it with action and come out with your solution. It can only take a resolve for you to make a move.

Great people don’t wait for somebody to do everything to them. They always know what to do and immediately proceed in doing that. Don’t ever let somebody tell you, you can’t do something. You can do it. It’s only for you to have a resolve and go after it.Great people don’t need constant praise. What really borders them is how to accomplish their goals. They only drive satisfaction when they met their target.

The world is very mean and nasty place, everything is drastically turning apart. But people with a resilient spirit, who can work hard always finds their way out. Sylvester Stallone says, “Let me tell you something that you already know. The worlds aren’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knells and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it isn’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done”.

The world is not bed of all roses. It is full of up and down, it’s like an endless ocean, it’s not always simple as just continuing onward, but when you keep moving forward, despite the failure and obstacles along the way, you are already ahead of those people that just give up.

Creative geniuses never depend on someone for their success. They are hard working people who believe that they can accomplish their goals by themselves. Some peoples believe that having a wealthy person around them or following a rich person will make them rich, but it’s not always like that. You will end up being a slave to that person, unless you have value or idea that you can contribute to the person in exchange of money without that nothing for you.
