Friends, when it comes to achieving success, in any area of life, you have to understand, what it takes, to acquire or take hold of that success. The desire to succeed, on its own, will not guarantee the success you want, but desire, coupled with common-sense, will put you in a whole different league altogether.

It was said by someone, or by several people, that one of the richest places on earth, must be the cemetery, because in it, you will find many unfulfilled dreams and desires. Many ideas, which might have had the potential to save lives, develop new industries, or become great companies, lie buried in the dust. There is, of course, some truth in that, because not all dreams and ideas, no matter how great and innovative they might be, are realized, or seen to become a reality. You see, friends, the problem is not that people are lazy or ignorant, or incapable of thinking outside the box, the problem is, that sometimes people, too often, look to or depend on other people, to succeed. True success is an independent thing, free and uninhibited. It is not bound down or restricted, no, it is free and unintimidated. All people on earth, wants to succeed at something, no matter who you are, what your name is, where you’re from, or where you live. It does not matter who you love or hate, favour or oppose, you want to succeed at something in life. It may be, in being your own boss, and running your own company, or, it could be the desire to graduate from university, it could be, that your desire is to be a great wife and mother, and you would consider yourself a success, if your children grew up into much-loved and well-respected adults, with great families themselves. Or, it could be, that you desire to be the next Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, as far as accomplishments and innovation are concerned, or it could very well be, as simple as succeeding in winning the heart of the person you love, and want to spend the rest of your life with, all people on earth want to succeed at something, even you.

Looking through your own dreams and desires, you understand, that it is indeed true, that you too, want to succeed at accomplishing something wonderful and significant. How to reach that success? That is the question you may have, or you may already possess the answer to that question, genius that you are! The rest of this, is for those who are humble enough to acknowledge, that they don’t know everything. Friend, there are many reasons why people fail to succeed at accomplishing their dreams, it is true, but I will give you the most common reason, why most people die, with unfulfilled dreams and desires. The most common reason, for never seeing those great dreams realized, is that sometimes, the dreamer, relies too much on those who are not dreamers.

It is really not necessary, to seek approval for your dreams, from all the people you meet, or come across; you don’t need the support of the world to succeed. You just need to be clear-headed and focused. Sharing your dreams and ideals, with every person you come across, will kill your dreams, and secure your failure. Not every person you know, is as smart, or as creative and innovative, as you are, some are small-minded; others are idiots, who will tell you all the reasons why you won’t succeed, because they’re jealous of your genius, and still others, will try to understand, where you’re coming from, in order to support you. The bottom-line is, some people are at the bottom when it comes to common-sense, and some are at the top. And, if you understand something that others don’t, then do not try and explain yourself to them, because they won’t get it, and even if some do, the jealousy thing is pretty strong among humans. Especially, when people secretly believe that you may succeed at achieving your dreams, they will try their best to cut you down, and be all negative, and fault-finding, trying to discourage you. And they do it, because they feel, that they will get left behind, if they support you, and you succeed. So, stay away from those dream-killers, of whom some, are among your closest friends and relatives, most of the time.

Your success is inevitable, when you stay focused, and keep your dreams to yourself. If God gave you the wisdom to come up with great dreams, then God is capable of giving you the support and resources you need, to see those dreams become a reality.

“Surely God is my help; the LORD is the One Who sustains me.” (Psalm 54:4 NIV)

“I call to God and the LORD saves me. Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and He hears my voice. He ransoms me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me.” (Psalm 55:16-18)

“Find rest O my soul, in God alone… One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God, are strong.” (Psalm 62:5; 11)

Do no rely so much on people, they prove to be the downfall of many, together with God, you are stronger than all who opposes you. Your success, does not depend on people, it depends on God.

“For you make me glad by your deeds, O LORD; I sing for joy at the works of your hands. How great are your works, O LORD, how profound your thoughts!” (Psalm 92:4-5)

What pops into your head when I say “Live Long And Prosper?” Is it not the desire, of every man and every woman, alive? That is, every sane man and woman’s desire. Every man and woman, wants to live a long, healthy and prosperous life; nobody “wants” their life to end, people like living, and living well. Living well, is every man and woman’s desire, and from the time when they’re born, up until they die, they strive to make the best of the life they have been given.
Even you friend, from the moment that you’re born into this world, your efforts are focused on creating a life, a good and prosperous life, for yourself, and those you love. As much, as the efforts of every man and woman on earth, are geared, towards creating the long, safe, happy, healthy and prosperous life, they so desire, they are all too aware of the fact, that “their efforts alone,” cannot create, all that they desire to have. For the primary reason, that they recognize that God is the One, Who is really in control of their world, and their ultimate realities. God set certain boundaries in place, which man, cannot cross, apart from the express will of God, God holds the destiny of every man and woman on earth, in His hand, even their very breath. A lot of people run from this Truth, that God is the One in control of this world, with all its flaws and chaos, but running from the Truth, won’t make it any less True or less Real. God is in charge, in charge of everything, everywhere, in God’s domain. A man or woman, cannot live on this planet, apart from the will of the Creators and Owners of this world. Even the most spiritual, and the most religious amongst men, understand, that their destinies and futures, are ultimately in the hands of God. The thing that I found amongst people, among those who fear God, and among those who cares nothing about God, or the will of God, is that all live in the great uncertainty, of not knowing, when their lives will end, or whether they will live long and prosperous lives.
All people, even those who cares nothing for God, or the will and commands of God, desires to live peaceful, safe, healthy, long and prosperous lives, with their loved ones. Even those who hate God, they desire to live long and prosperous lives, even those who live recklessly, and who does stupid things, like their own lives don’t matter to them, they desire to live long prosperous lives. But the one thing which exists, at the core of every man and woman on earth, is the great uncertainty, of not knowing when their end will come. Now, I’m not writing this to sound gloomy, but it is to make a point. And the point is, that just about every man and woman on earth, lives in great uncertainty. Even those who have access to the written word of God, with all God’s promises, they live in uncertainty. 

Leaders of faith, live in uncertainty, they don’t know how long their lives will be, the same uncertainties are found in God’s word, where God’s own prophets and messengers, anointed and chosen by God, were found to have no certainty, about the length of their own lives, and they had no certainty, and no complete peace in them. It is a terrible thing to live like that, not knowing when your life will end, or how long you will live, all you have is hope. A hope in God, to live long, hoping that God will honour what is written about God, that He will grant them a long and prosperous life. If the leaders of faith, lives with such a great uncertainty in them, then what about their followers? How can the followers of uncertainty, have certainty? How can the weak have strength, when those who are supposed to be the strong, have none? Because certainty, is a strength, a benefit, a confidence, and a great calm. I look into the eyes of the leaders of men, and there is that uncertainty, that fear, that weakness. The great calm is absent, the confidence is not there, and they are weak.
I don’t blame humans for being weak, or uncertain. God created humans, and it is God’s responsibility, to inspire confidence, it is God’s responsibility, to be a Guiding Light, to a young race. The lives of humans are so short, so brief it is tragic. Humans die so young, what is a hundred years, when compared to eternity? It is nothing!! What is God doing about inspiring confidence in mankind? Well, there is the word of God, but is that sufficient?

I will tell you God’s solution, to mankind’s brief lifespan. I will tell you what God wants mankind to know, God’s solution to mankind, living long and prospering. It is written:

“Remember your Creator while you are young, before the days of trouble come.” (Ecclesiastes 12:1)
That is God’s solution, simple I’d say. Remember your Creator. What is so difficult about that, knowing or remembering your Creator? If that is all that is needed, for man and woman, to live long and prosper, then there is nothing to it, right? Well, easier said than done, your hearts must be pure.

“Who may ascend the hill of the LORD, who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart.” (Psalm 24:3-4)

You see friend, anybody can claim to know God, but very few can prove that they do, because your very lifespan, is attached to that knowledge. If you know God, Truly know God, then you will have the knowledge that is needed to live. And I am not speaking about the puffed up knowledge of the proud, I hate pride. How can your heart be pure when you are proud? Pride will lead to the downfall of its bearer. Anybody can quote scripture and read the bible, but not everyone can understand it. There are many voices in the world and the vast majority, proves to be of no righteous benefit to their followers, and that, because they are unwise. God’s word is not for private interpretation, it is God’s word. If you have understanding of the scriptures, or the word of God, in Truth, then you will know how to stay alive, and overcome evil.

''Understanding is the fountain of life to those who have it.'' (Proverbs 16:22)

The question is: What is it that God wants you to understand?

''You will understand what is right and just and fair -every good path.'' (Proverbs 2:9)
Meaning, that if you have understanding of what is right and just, and fair, you will have found the fountain of life!! You will understand which paths are good paths, and you will avoid the evil paths, which will shorten your life. You have to understand every good path, and that is why God, wants you to remember Him, when you are young, so God can teach you, there is much to learn.

''The highway of the upright avoids evil; he who guards his way guards his life.'' (Proverbs 16:17)
''Thus you will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous. For the upright will live in the land and the blameless will remain in it.'' (Proverbs 2:20-21)

These are so simple. But to gain understanding you will have to know God, and God will give you understanding. I know for a fact, that humans, or rather, the just or righteous humans, in particular, should live beyond a hundred years, because God made provision for that in His Covenant of Peace. According to God’s Covenant, it is the will of God, for “the just or upright” in particular, to live long and prosper, but through understanding and knowledge, which comes from God.


Worry is something, which most people, are fairly familiar with, across all social, economic, and whatever else divides. Most people, do not want to worry about anything; people just want to live their lives, free from worry and the anxieties, which accompanies worry. What is worry? Worry is (being in) a state of anxiety, sometimes severe anxiety, and other times more mildly, but anxiety still the same. My solution to worry and being full of anxiety: Do Not Worry, but Be Concerned.

Worry, has the nasty habit, of sucking the joy and peace from people’s lives, and bodies. Worry drains the energy of its carrier, because worry, is like a living thing, like a spirit. Almost all things on this planet, are caused or created by some spirit. God is a Spirit (or believed to be a spirit), and God created almost everything on this planet (and don’t be surprised when I say, “God created almost everything on this planet,” because there are things, which God did not and could not create, because they already existed, long before there was or were, a being or beings, who referred to themselves as Gods). Worry is driven, or caused, mostly by spirits, for humans, worry is a mental thing, it is something which happens in their minds, and affects their bodies. You don’t worry with your hand or your feet, or your face, you can express worry through your hands and face, by chewing your nails or tapping your fingers (sometimes the fruits or indication of worry and anxiety), but you worry mostly with your brain. Your brain is where the thoughts and ideas, which causes you to worry, are, and those thoughts, are the reason why your body is stressed (much of the time), your brain is your control panel. You may know, or you may not know, but your brain receives messages all the time, from your body, and from your immediate surroundings, and you may not be aware of it, but from spirits. Yes, spirits have access to your brain, they can either be helpful and beneficial, or very destructive, it depends on the type of spirit. They can be helpful, and make you very intelligent and wise, or they can be destructive, and cause memory loss, confusion, worry and anxiety. Whatever a “good” spirit can do to your brain, the bad ones can do the exact opposite. There is a scripture that says:

“Consider the paths for your feet and take only ways that are firm.” (Proverbs 4:26 NIV)
What God is saying, or want humans to get, through that message, is, that not every path is a good path, and not every thought or idea, that pops into your head, is a good one, or from a good spirit. When thoughts or ideas, or even dreams, pops into your mind, do not tolerate the bad ideas and thoughts, but consider them. Consider their source, and what their message is, because there is a message, and a spirit, behind that thought. And if it is a bad thought, or idea, or dream, then be concerned, because some spirit, is either warning you about something, or making you aware of something, or a spirit is threatening you. The thoughts in people’s heads, are mainly the reason, why people tend to worry a lot, even if they worry about some bad circumstance or situation, they only start worrying, after they had been made aware of the issue, they don’t worry before they know, they worry after. God says, “consider the paths for your feet,” that means do not be in a rush to solve problems, that is where the anxiety will start, no, consider, think it through. And thinking something through, or considering something, is not a form of worry, to consider something means to weigh your options, that is why it says, “consider the paths for your feet.” Paths mean, that you do have options to consider, so do not rush, and consider your options. And after you have considered your options, God says, that you should take only firm ways, that is certain ways. Do not go down the road of uncertainty, walk down the road of certainty, where things are clear. (Unless you are one of those people who likes surprises- not all surprises are good surprises- stay in the know)

If you are righteous, and possess wisdom, then you will find a lot of Truth in God’s word, sometimes hidden, but if God “likes” you (OR FAVOUR RATHER), then you will see a lot of clear direction in a simple verse. And if you are the just, one more thing that God says to you in that verse, is to “take only firm ways.” That means, as the just, your feet should always and only be, on firm and certain ways, it includes all things: money, relationships, work and everything else, take “only” solid ways. Do not set foot in the way of uncertainty; it is wiser to rather wait, than to make a hasty decision, which you will regret later on.
A lot of people try to solve the problems of the world, and when they can’t, they then worry about not being able to solve the problems of the world. Be concerned I say, don’t worry, do the good you can, and leave the rest up to God. A lot of “religious people” think, that solving the world’s problems is their responsibility, but God wants you to know something: “Consider the paths for your feet.” Meaning, that you should not worry about the feet of all the people in the world, and where their feet are taking them, be concerned for your feet. Don’t worry about the world, be concerned for your own feet, God gave a brain and feet to every man and woman (except for certain situations where God was being mean), so be concerned for “your own feet.” Consider where your feet are taking you, because you can control them, the feet of others, are not under your control, God did not give you control over their feet, so control your own. Where are your feet taking you? You are in control of them (most of the time). So do not allow anxiety and worry, to cause your feet to rush into uncertain ways, and shaky paths, allow your brain to weigh your options first, you’ll live longer. And remember, God gave every man and woman their own feet, and their own brain, so don’t use your brain, to try and control the feet of every man and woman in the world, just try controlling yours.

“The LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared.” (Proverbs 3:26)
“Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble.” (Proverbs 3:23)
“Thus you will walk in the ways of good men.” (Proverbs 2:20)
