To be a Successful Person

  1. Be confident in your faith 

And this is the victory that has overcome the world— our faith (1 John 5:4). Do not allow your faith to be moved. Do not let your faith be shaken by what you hear from others, or by what you see in the news. Your faith is what protects you, and what keeps you walking in the right path. 

  1. Be a person of principles

Be a person who lives by principles. Do not be a person who lives without values and simply goes with the flow. Do not be a wave in the social current. Build yourself principles and do not be shaken. Be a person of principles no matter what the circumstances may be, and if a principle is based on a commandment from the Bible, it will be a successful principle. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome (1 John 5:3). 

  1. Be positive 

Always be positive in your relationships. Behave positively in all circumstances. Think positively. When you think about life, and the society we live in, think in a positive way. If you are going to give an opinion, give a positive opinion and if you are going to express yourself, do so positively.

  1. Be a person who witnesses for Christ 

You carry the name of Christ, so be a witness for Him, through your word, through your honesty, through your faithfulness and in whatever work you do.

  1. Be a person of constant prayer

There is no prayer, even if it is a single word, that will be lost. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much (James 5:16). Prayers can accomplish many things. Pray at all times, and know that prayers accomplish miracles. Prayer moves the Hand that created the world.

To be successful in your life, having received many blessings that God has given you, be confident in your faith, be a person of principle, be positive, witness for your Christ, and pray continually.
