Most of us have great dreams and visions, but it is important that to become great and significant in life,0VISION is not enough, it must be combined with VENTURE. It is not enough to stare at the stairs of greatness, you must step on it. It is only those who act on their dreams that get honored. Besides, one wise action is more valuable than a thousand theories. Information without application establishesa person in frustration.

While it is good to talk “BIG”, it however takes more than a big talk to attract success. Hear what the wisdom of God says in the book of James 2:14 and 16 (MESSAGE BIBLE): “Dear friend, do you think you will get anywhere in this life if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that person really has it?  Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?”

I believe the failure (or refusal) to put in the needed work into their dream is what has made many dreamers and visionaries remain insignificant in areas and locations where they ought to be enjoying influence.

Dear friend, when you study the biography of any successful person, you will discover that they had to take consistent action on their dreams before they walked into success. Having big dreams is not enough, you must be willing to pay the price needed to make it a reality. A wise man once said: “There is something, more important than believing, it is ACTION!”

The world is full of dreamers, there aren’t enough who are willing to go ahead and begin to take concrete steps to actualize their vision.

Dear friend, have a clear picture of where your life should be headed, and let that picture consistently propel you to WORK and take the needed steps. This is the formula for greatness: VISION + CONSISTENT WISE WORK = SUCCESS UNLIMITED.

Truth is, you must be passionate about your dreams, and let that passion propel you to take actions. I believe most people fail in life due to lack of passion and determination, not necessarily becauseof the lack of assistance and support. No matter the assistance you render a person who lacks passion and drive for life, it will all go down the drain. This is why it is important that before you provide assistance for anyone, find out if they really have passion and desireto see their dreams and vision become reality. When there is strong passion, they will be willing to pay the price necessary for success.

Dear friend, success in life is a product of consistent efforts, and wisely-utilized failure. Never see yourself as a failure because certain things you dared didn’t turn out as expected.

Refuse to give up, refuse to go down. Refuse to give-in. If you try you may fail. But, if you don’t try, you will fail! You never know the strength of your fighting spirit, until you dare the impossible!

Always remember, there is no such thing as impossible if you are will to pay the price.

I like you to constantly remind yourself that the top is reserved only for combatants — those who are willing and prepared to press their way to the top. You need to understand that there are no free meals anywhere. Life was never meant to be trouble-free. Life was designed to be challenging, overcoming and wining. Truth is, we will always succeed when we refuse to surrender to setbacks, rejections and failures.

No misfortune can overpower a determined person. Always live with the consciousness that pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. However, if you quit or give up on your dreams or your principles, pain will last forever.

Dear friend, when your destiny book is opened, let it show your successes, failures, wins and losses. Don’t let it show that you did not try. To live is to keep striving. To continual delay doing great things is to consciously waste today. Just so you know, nature has an unpleasant and horrible way of rewarding folks who waste the present; it always leaves them with a medal called REGRETS.

As human beings, the allure of success attracts us all. Most times, we get lost in the glamour associated with the lives of successful people without necessarily asking about their behind-the-scene details.

You must never forget that any product that ever got the showroom had to first go through the factory.

No matter how things turn out at any given time, keep on doing whatever you can to advance with your dreams and vision. Don’t ever stop doing what you know you should be doing with your life — to stop is to die! Never ever quit; only dead men quit. Keep running towards your future.

Go.Work your dream.

Impossible is nothing!
