Today we begin the journey into your personal greatness, prosperity and success. If you succeed as an individual, your family will succeed. Successful families build successful communities. Together, we will change our communities and our nation. Let us begin:

FUNDAMENTAL #1: Define Success; Set the Vision

You cannot achieve what you haven’t defined. You cannot reach a destination you have not set. You will never hit a target you haven’t set. What will success mean to you in 2015 and beyond? Yes, your pastor might have declared that the Lord will prosper you in 2015, that God will restore your life, or move you from “glory to glory” (maybe he has been declared this over your life for the past ten years!). But have you seen your life progressing? Maybe you just folded your hands and did nothing.

Success must be clearly defined in your own terms based on your situation. My son set himself some clear success goal: “Be in the top five in class”, and he moved into boarding school to work on his dream. I have set for myself specific things I must achieve, do, attain, give / contribute in 2015. They include “Successfully conducted 20 public seminars in Blantyre and Lilongwe.” “Publish 4 quarterly motivational publications”. Come December 2015, I will have ticked that 20 public seminars were conducted and four motivational editions produced.

What will it be for you? What will success look like? Is it passing an exam with a credit or distinction? Is it completing a degree course, or a masters program? Buying a piece of land for you to build your house? Is it finding a wife/husband; boyfriend/girlfriend? Is it changing jobs? Starting a business? Be very clear about what it is that you want to see accomplished in the next twelve months.

SET A CRYSTAL CLEAR VISION: This is long-term. Focus on this year but see beyond 2015. I propose see your life in the next 10 years. How should your life be in 2025? What achievements should be accredited to your life? What possessions must you own? What contributions should you have made to society? Imagine being introduced at a special event organized in your honour: What should the MC say to introduce you? What things should people say about your personal, spiritual, professional, social, financial and career / business accomplishments?

Write down the vision, make it plain on tablets or paper (Habakkuk 2:2-3). Print it, frame it and hang it where you can see and read it every day. Never forget, without a vision, you will perish. Define success in your life; set a clear vision for your life, write it down. Do this within 48 hours of reading this post. God Bless You!
