Secrets of success on how to overcome that failure.

When u want to succeed as bad as u want to breath then you’ll be successful.
Let me put it this way, have you had an asthma attack before? its downright scary, all asthmatic patients at that moment want some air, we call that SOB, not son of a b****h but shortness of breath. The only thing they’re trying to do is get some air, they don’t care about whatever they were doing before then or then, just air.
So when you get to the point where you want to be successful as bad as you want to breath then you’ll be successful.

Most times, you think you want to be successful, but you don’t. You just kind of want it.
Sometimes to want to be successful, you have to sacrifice party, pools, food and even sleep.
Beyonce said at a time she was on stage three days no eat, no drink, no sleep and she didn’t know cos she was engaged.
50 cents was asked in his studios when he was producing his sound tracks “when do you sleep?” He answered, ” Sleep is for those who are broke.”
Most times when we study and we get tired we quit, we go to bed and sleep or we do something else.
Eric Thomas said “Don’t cry to give up, cry to keep going.” Don’t cry to quit, you are already in pain, make sure you get a reward from it. Don’t go to sleep unless you succeed.
M.S Smith said, “all men are created equal, some work harder in preseason.”
The lessons I learnt from Eric Thomas and you will are three.
1. Its not about where you come from, its about heart. The important thing is not the where but do you have the heart to do it.
2. To be able at any moment to sacrifice where you are for what you will become. Some of us has our time for football league matches, time for telenovelas, time for sleep, heck even time for resting. I’m a hurt you by saying this but some of us needs to give up our cell phones, cos the time we use on our cell phones chatting, tweeting and retweeting, phone calls can be used for our success. Cos your cell phones bring you nothing but bills.
I need to rap this up now but before then, look up what I said again in point number two. Yeah! Look up, I’m waiting.

Those who saved us from slavery fought for 400 years and they won, they fought for 400 years and we are struggling to get through 18-25 or more and you are quitting? I dare you, flash back, if them slaves quit to fight for freedom, would we have made it? Yeah! 400 years and you complain for 7 years.

The problem is we have never felt no pain before, we are soft. We live in a soft generation. We quit on everything that brings us discomfort. Divorces, School Drop outs, Alcoholics, Smokers etc are all on the rise today. Quit after you’ve been successful with your marriage and see if you wanna divorce. Quit from school after you’ve gotten the degree. Quit after you have faced that problem squared on, then you can quit.
You quit when you haven’t even tried anything yet, we are soft.

I Dare You.

Last one I’m sorry, this the last one.

3. Pain is temporary, it may last for a minute, a hour, a day or even a year but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place, if I quit however, it will last forever.
Some of us are spoilt, I could blame our parents for that yet I’ll repeat it some of us are spoilt brats. Every time we get in problem, somebody from our house gets us out. And some of us had parents that developed us, mostly our mothers. Sorry to all the dads out there but I meant that. There’s this saying behind every man is a woman is true but it ain’t your wife. Its your mother. Our mother may be mean, wicked but I am where I am today cos my mum discipled me, she taught me all I needed to know. To all the wife’s out there, be the woman behind ur children by developing your motherly skills now. Your children will remember you one day just as I am doing.

Thank you Ma.

Some of you got no balls to face the challenges, some of you when there’s a problem you call mama. I dare you to take a little pain. I dare you. You ain’t gonna die, cos at the end of every pain is success. So don’t worry about that little pain.

You have to give it everything you’ve got. It has to move from external to internal, from outward to inside of you.
I had failed in my life, given up until I listened to this podcast and asked myself this question, Will the real Emmanuel, Please stand up? Will the real Emmanuel, please stand up? And then I went at it again and I still failed, but this time it was a good failure cos I knew what I got right and what I got wrong. You don’t need me to tell you what happened after then cos I went at the exam and now I’m successful.

Its not about where I’m from, its about heart. Pain is temporary cos at the end of it is success. Until you get there, you will never be successful but once you get there and you work hard, I guarantee you that the world will be yours.

NB: I wrote this piece after I had successfully passed an exams and I know out there some one may be going through this. I’m not out there to impress but to tell you to share this on your timeline, on your page, and send it out cos it might not be for you but for someone beside you who is scared to let you know what he/she is going through. Do share this and save it too.

NBB: I listened to this podcast from Eric Thomas the hip hop preacher on YouTube on secrets of success and how bad you want it and its been success all through.
