Emmanuelkumah: The Road to Succes

Persist till you succeed
Success is one of the major meals every individual should seek in his journey on earth. Unfortunately, not all men are successful. Why is that the case? I think I know the answer,Because  not all men  wants to be successful ,in other words, not all men wake up from bed and then decides to push their  way to success.
What then is success? To me success is a journey and like every important journey, it begins with the first step and a lonely long walk through the narrow road. Are you dreaming of becoming successful in all spheres of your life? If your answer is yes,then continue reading this article. Here, I would point out to you one of the major components of success.Though this key to success is directly in front of us, so many people jump over it and I believe you have done the same many many times.
What is Persistence, Persistence is self discipline and self discipline to me is, having the ability within yourself,based on your strength of character and will power , to do what you should do when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not. This means if you want to be successful you should do what you feel like not doing to get what you want .For instance,if you want to be a successful  Pastor or to be in ministry  just like I am planning, you need self discipline ,the ability to wake up at dawn and pray till something happens whether the  weather is chilled or red hot.A successful athlete persist each day running  a 100 meter race in the cold or hot till he finally wins the ultimate race.Just know that , success is not a matter of luck if it was all men would have been successful.
When the going gets tough- Persist

Perhaps the greatest display of self-discipline is persisting when the going gets tough. Persistence is self-discipline in action. Your persistence is, in fact, the true measure of your belief in yourself and your ability to succeed. Each time that you persist in the face of adversity and disappointment, you build the habit of persistence. You build pride, power, and self-esteem in your character and your personality. You become stronger and more resolute. By persisting, you become more self-disciplined, if you are on your way of doing  something extraordinary don’t give up, persist till you succeed and when you have, men would path a way to your door step.( I would definitely  be the first on your door step ok!)
Parting words
Before saying good bye know this : “There is no failure for the man who gets up every time he falls, who rebounds like a rubber ball, who persists when everyone else gives up, who pushes on when everyone else turns back.”
