Nothing good comes easy. Success does not meet anyone by accident. Proper preparation is what produces adequate performance.  Success, therefore, takes deliberate planning and actions.

Yes! Planning. The place of planning in achieving success in life cannot be overemphasized. As the saying goes ‘if you fail to plan, you plan to fail’. Even the good book says that a man that must build, must first count the cost of building. That’s planning, analyzing, or strategizing. Therefore, to avoid haphazard and no direction movement or actions in life, planning must be given its due place.

Success does not come from planning alone, the ideas you have planned out must be executed. You cannot know how good you are at a thing until you have tried it. There is a difference between imagination or brainstorming and getting involved in the action. Haven planned; therefore, it is pertinent that you put your plan into action to achieve results.

In executing your plan, do not be scared of failure. Failure is simply an opportunity to try again and do it better. If you are mocked today, you won’t be mocked tomorrow because you will learn from your experience. Knowing that experience is the best teacher.

In a nutshell, do not just dream, but also plan, execute and above all, involve God and success will have no choice but to be yours.
