Do YOU REALLY Want To Be Successful?

coming-up-for-air-resized

An energetic young business man meets a guru one day while walking along the beach. It’s the same guru so many have told him about. Apparently, this guru is the wisest and most thoughtful person in the world, but usually inaccessible. Knowing how to interpret fate, the young man asks the guru a question:

“What must I do to be successful?”

The guru glances at him in that zen, guru-like way and says he’ll share with him how to be successful tomorrow morning at 4 a.m. at this same beach.

The next day, the man shows up, nicely dressed and finds the guru near the shoreline. He asks the guru the same question. The guru responds by asking the young man to follow him out into the water. The man is confused at first, but figures the guru must know what he’s doing, so the two wade into the ocean together.

The guru turns and says, “Let’s keep going.” So, they walk in until the water is up to their knees, then their waists, then their chests. The man, suit soaked, now asks, “Guru! What does this have to do with success?”

“Do you want to be successful?” the guru asks.

“Yes! Of course I do,” the man replies.

Just then, the guru dunks him under the water. The young man fights to get back above water, but in addition to being wise, the guru is also strong. After about 15 seconds, the guru lets him back up. Confused and infuriated, the young man rails, “What was that?! What are you doing?!” Immediately, the guru pushes him under and holds him down again. After about 15 seconds, he lets him up.

“What are you doing?! I asked you how to be successul and you’re trying to drown me!”

The guru calmly replies, “Do you want to be successful?”

Frustrated, the man looks at him and says, “Yes, I want to -”

Before he can finish, the guru dunks him a third down, holding him down longer than before. He finally lets him up. The man is gasping for air now, trying to regain his bearings.

The guru states, “Until you want success as badly as you wanted air just now, you will never achieve it.”

From this i understand that the only way to be successful is to be fully focused on that goal, sacrifice for it, be determined for it, work hard for it and keep believing no matter how far it may be from your reach.

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23 NKJV

Lazy people are soon poor; hard workers get rich. Proverbs 10:4 NLT

Remember: IF YOU CAN DREAM IT; YOU CAN ACHIEVE IT!

The Virtuous Wife || Advice for Women

prod_romance_virtuous_wife

A good woman is hard to find,
    and worth far more than diamonds.
Her husband trusts her without reserve,
    and never has reason to regret it.
Never spiteful, she treats him generously
    all her life long.
She shops around for the best yarns and cottons,
    and enjoys knitting and sewing.
She’s like a trading ship that sails to faraway places
    and brings back exotic surprises.
She’s up before dawn, preparing breakfast
    for her family and organizing her day.
She looks over a field and buys it,
    then, with money she’s put aside, plants a garden.
First thing in the morning, she dresses for work,
    rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.
She senses the worth of her work,
    is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.
She’s skilled in the crafts of home and hearth,
    diligent in homemaking.
She’s quick to assist anyone in need,
    reaches out to help the poor.
She doesn’t worry about her family when it snows;
    their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear.
She makes her own clothing,
    and dresses in colorful linens and silks.
Her husband is greatly respected
    when he deliberates with the city fathers.
She designs gowns and sells them,
    brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops.
Her clothes are well-made and elegant,
    and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.
When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say,
    and she always says it kindly.
She keeps an eye on everyone in her household,
    and keeps them all busy and productive.
Her children respect and bless her;
    her husband joins in with words of praise:
“Many women have done wonderful things,
    but you’ve outclassed them all!”
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
    The woman to be admired and praised
    is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
Give her everything she deserves!
    Festoon her life with praises! Proverbs 31:10-31 The Message
