WHAT DOES SUCCESS ENTAILS? —————(6 Minutes Read)


I published the original piece of this article on th 15th of August 2016 on facebook without any title.It is one of my random line of thought that I find quite amazing,useful and evergreen even after it was shared by facebook as a memory after one year.And at the point of viewing it this year, i deemed it fit that it will be beneficial and reasonable to share it with all my friends,followers and viewers on my blog.

It might end up being a new twist to the concept of success or it might be an addition to what all of us knew about success before.Whether it is a new twist or not,lets roll up our sleeves with our mind openned to accommodate this little idea of mine.

Can we start?

It goes thus:

Little steps with little efforts geared towards achieving little feats and channelled towards the promotion of a better society with the development  of every fargments of human endeavour in all existential simply connotes success.

Success is triggered when deliberate concerted efforts are made to implement ideas that will change the course and plight humanity towards achieving a common goals that will incorporate every dwellers of any communal society as part of the global community without making one to be superior to others.

According to Napoleon Hill:

“Patience, Perstitence and Perspiration make an unbeatable combination of success”

Without any shade and iota of doubt, one could easily understand that before success can be achieved by anyone, there are so many parameters in form of attitude, understanding and characters that must become habitual in our quest for success.Some of these parameters are:


  • Vision
  • Confidence
  • Patience
  • Persistence
  • Persevearance
  • Perspiration
  • Knowledge
  • Honesty
  • Humility and meekness
  • Sensitivity and responsiveness
  • Being focussed and unrelenting
  • Being responsible and hardworking
  • Ability to create opportunity from any challenge.

It is until when all these parameters are well and carefully inculcated as a habit that one could be confident of being  qualified to be succesful.

In another twist, many wait believing that it is until when a massive feats of achievements are made that they can be qualified to be succesful.This is a wrong assumption.This kind of assumption only triggers and encourage many to be on a rat race competing with others they they believed have made better impart.

Success is simply triggered when we contribute in our own little ways and means in making what is difficult and unachievable by others to become a reality no matter how little, insignificant and inconsequential it might be.

It is until when every dweller of a society is viewed and treated as a stakeholde of the larger global world that success being yearned for by all and sundry for the reality of global peace can surface in no distant time.

It is on the platform of our contribution to better the lot of the society in our own little way that our names  will be inscribed in gold and our memoir will be a memeory that will be viewed by posterity in the annals of human history.


No successful impart and impact can be made by anyone without any effort to understand the essence of humanity and the yearnings of the next person sitting at a little distance to us.It is until when we are able to fathom the need of others and accept it as our own need that will be able to understand what is needed to be done per time and what steps need to be taken to fashion a way out to help people around us to meet the needed solution.

It is at the point of proffering the needed solution and implementing it with the reality at hand that any one of us who has been yearning to be succesful can be confident of being succesful.

What makes us to be succesful is the contributions and efforts made by us to alleviate the plight of people around us.No one should dream of being succesful if you can not see the need to make yourself relevant and available to fashion a way out in getting solutions to the need of others.

The mind to be a helping hand and a listening heart must be available before anyone can qualified to be a good contributor to the plight of others which will end up entrenching your stand as being qualified as one of the success.

In conclusion,it is pertinent for everyone to uderstand what needs to be done to put a smile on the face of others by living a life of selflessness and sacrifice that will help in pulling others out from the quagmire of deep challenges that have been the present realities of the world we live in since ages.

It is when you contribute your quota in making others to smile that all of us living in the world can experience true smile obtainable from a world whereby all inhabitants are experiencing the realities of global peace that have been eluding the fabrics of our society.

We help ourselves by helping others.

If you leave others to face their challenges, you will end up putting yourself at a risk of experiencing the negative effect of what comes out of their challenges.No one should be left alone to face any challenge.

We should contribute our quota in being:

an eye to the blind,

a ear to the deaf,

a mouth to the dumb,

a cloth to the naked,

a shelter to the destitute.

Our streets are filled with less priviledged and people that are homeless with no hope of a better tomorrow.

Our society are filled with teenagers hawking and young girls that are into prostitution thereby becoming a victim of rape.

Our world is filled with crowd of heads looking up to us in becoming their guild for them to have a direction in life.

Our success will become definitive and handy until when we relayed our efforts about what we have done in meeting the needs of others.Success should not be defined in words alone, it should be defined in acts and in deeds with smiles and laughters bein seen on the faces of people we helped to pull out of darkness.
