The 25 Biblical Laws of Success Book Recap
This recap is long overdue! I read The 25 Biblical Laws of Success a while ago and it was so on point as to how I've been feeling about success. This book gave powerful principles that will help you change your mindset on building a successful career and/or business with the help of bible scriptures. I could go into great detail about this book but instead, I want to touch on one of my favorite chapters, The Sin of Haste. Reading this chapter couldn't have come at a better time and I must admit if you are an entrepreneur, this chapter is definitely for you.
We live in such a microwavable world that everything seems to happen overnight. Nobody wants to work hard for anything and now it seems success is based on a person's social media platform. Now, this is my opinion but I know a lot of people who feel the same way I do. The reason why The Sin of Haste is my favorite chapter is that it was a reminder that I needed to see again; you can not cheat the grind. If you want to become successful in your field, you have to work for it. Success takes time. Success takes patience. Success takes preparation.
One of my favorite mantras that I lived by is work for the job you want and not the job you have. During this chapter, it talks about the importance of having a solid foundation of competence and hard work. You have to attain the knowledge to be competent in what you want to achieve while working smart to meet the goals that you have set for yourself in order to be successful. Now it is definitely no walk in the park but with the right tools and mindset, success will come looking for you. There are no shortcuts or tricks that will help you become successful faster so therefore you have to put 1000 percent in it. What you put into the grind is what the grind will put right back into you
You have to strive for excellence no matter what. I know I am guilty of this but excellence cannot be contingent on the amount of money you have, the current job you worked at, or anything that is circumstantial. Listen I get it. You want what you want when you want it and when you don't see the results that you want, you slack off. One of the biggest lessons life taught me and I finally got it is you have to learn patience. Cultivating patience will take you way further in life and it will present you more meaningful opportunities that will be conducive to your overall goal. So yes being patient is annoying but it will pay off in the end.
I hope this recap encourage you all to constantly put the work into your dreams. If you read this book, comment below and tell me your favorite chapter and why! To purchase this book, please click here.
