Main text: Romans 12:2 (NIV) – Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then, you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.

Philippians 4:8 (NLT) – And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thought on what is true and honourable and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about those things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

To be successful in life’s endeavour, discipline and positive attitudes are expected. It is not sufficient to set goals but achieving them. On the road to success and achieving goals, some pertinent attitudes which fuel the engine greatness are required. Only following regimented worldly design is not enough to really excel because we are faced also with spiritual forces hence, spiritual fortification is essential. 

The success we desire to achieve begins from the mind. Clear your mind of worldly standards and allow God sharpen your mind. You must have the urge to do things the God way. The ways you channel your thought impact our success story. You must set your eyes on God because He has the final say over your life and destiny.Our second text tells us that we must shun negativity.

Your life’s purpose is far too important to be slaughtered on the altar of gossip and inordinate behaviours – It is a truth that ‘as a man think in his heart, so is he’. You must convert all the negative thought to winning mindset and attitudes. Think Success! Work on the information you receive and how you brood over them. Humble yourself before the Lord and He will raise you. Don’t brag about your accomplishments because pride goes before a fall.  Study the word of God and digest it and watch God elevate you.


Prayer point: Father, help me to attain my purpose in life in Jesus name. Amen
