Great Thinking, Great Success

Posted on Updated on

WELCOME BACK. Winston Churchill once said “Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it’s the courage to continue that count” Success is a doorway for greatness. As they popularly say, “Ideas rule the world”. Ideas are so powerful that many nations today are ruled by the thoughts of men who have long since die. I discovered that most of the books I read when I was in college were written by people who are no longer living. I spend thousands of naira studying their ideas. Vision is an idea that can live beyond the grave. Your own vision should outlive you. In order for that to happen, you can’t keep your ideas to yourself. You must clearly conceive and express them. One of the challenges people have is the challenge of ignorance. Ignorance is a theft of time that brought about backwardness and mediocrity in some of the developing nations of the world. Those great men and women who have impressed and impacted their generations, they weren’t “lucky”. They didn’t just stumbled on greatness. They thought great things and expected great things, and greatness found them. Big thinking precedes to big achievement. You don’t need to be big to think great thoughts. You need to think great thoughts to become big. The scripture says: As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.

Success means doing the best you can with what you have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be. You see, life is the way you see it. When you begin to see with the eyes of vision, you’ll understand how to make your vision a reality. Let me tell you a story of two young men who visited India many years ago. When they were walking on the street of Bombay they saw thousands of poor people on the streets walking on barefoot. One said to his friend, “Look at these people, they are without shoe”. What a pity. Isn’t it a shame that we have so much at home in our country while these people are poor and without shoes? He continued to talk about how poor they were and their bare feet. By this time, his friend had already taken out a piece of paper and was writing down some notes. He had started working out a plan of how to ship shoes over to India and how to manufacture shoes in India, instead of saying, “Look at the bare feet” he was saying, “Look at the feet that need shoes!” Today his enterprise is one of the largest shoe companies in America. One man saw bare feet. Another man saw an opportunity for a much needed business. Wow! “Great Thinking, Great Success”.
