“You just have power within, but the secret of success is to employ your power and talents and be prepared for the opportunity when it comes,” once said Walter Matthews.
Success is not foreign. Victory is not afar and conquering is not beyond your reach. It is within you.

Actually, if we are to be more precise and direct, you must then accept that success is just harboured in the shores of your heart.
Thus as a goal-getter like you, you don’t need a rocket scientist to tell you that success is positioned within your reachable success radius. No. You just need yourself to kick-start your journey.
The story of Samson
A biblical story is told of a man called Samson. It said that one day he approached his parents with the intention of marrying. He was told what to do, but he never went on to take the advice of the parents. Because of that, he finally landed in the hands of a terrible woman called Delilah.
This woman used all that she knew in order to entice him. She even made him sleep upon her knees. She called for men, and she caused them “to shave off the seven locks of his head, and she began to afflict him and his strength went from him.”
The creeping of disaster
Here is how disaster crept into his life. It came through disobedience. Which was the obedience to the wrong voice and it cost him his life.
At this point all his strength was now gone. He became more like an ordinary person.
He now stood like a defeated battle victim. He was down. He was down and out. He had no hope. His future had turned dark.
But remember there is always light at the end of the dark tunnel.
No matter how difficult things maybe, there is always a bigger, brighter and better side of any coin.
So what did he do? He called unto the Lord, and said, “Oh Lord God, remember me. I pray thee and strengthen me, only this once.”
The spirit of a fighter
It is said Samson then held to the “two pillars upon which the house stood,” and the house fell upon all the people that were in it.
It was a horrible disaster. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than which he slew in his life time. This was only because of his desire of not accepting defeat. The spirit of never say die.
The spirit that desire to keep trying. No matter how many times you fail. You have the power to try again.
Remember the verses from this poem:
Try, try, try and again,
If you don’t succeed try again.
Life is a trial game. And those who don’t lose heart and keep trying will find the life game exciting. They will enjoy it like no-one’s business.
Life is always designed and decorated that way. It rewards the fighters. These are the real champions.
Men who don’t mind the risk of battle, but always have their eyes on the final winning line.
Never should you forget that; “the starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat,” once thundered Napoleon HiII.
You have blazing fire within. You just need to turn it on and power yourself into unstoppable motion, just like veldfire on a windy day.
Why wait too long? Why keep gazing the stars if you can set your wings into the air and fly away to your destiny? Always never forget that the potential harboured in your intelligence can do wonders. It can be done. Be blessed.
