I am releasing a book next month with the title above. It’s my very first book but now in it’s second edition – revised and enlarged. It would sure bless you. Here, enjoy an excerpt from the first chapter. YOU WILL SUCCEED!
You can turn your life around.Yes, you can! You can change your world from a world of defeat into a world of victory.From a world of poverty into a worldof riches. From sickness to health; from breakdown to breakthroughs. You can move your world from failure to success, from survival to significance. You can change your world!
You Must Be “Born Again”!
But listen, friend, you cannotchange the world until your own world is changed. That is, youcannot impact your generation until your own life is changed! If you can getthe ‘man’ right, you’ll get your ‘world’ right. James Allen in his all-timeclassic “As A Man Thinketh” said, “Man has but to right himself to find thatthe universe is right; and during the process of putting himself right; he willfind that as he alters his thoughts towards things and other people; things andother people will alter towards him.”
Change begins with you. Withoutpersonal change there can’t be professional change. Jesus saidto Nicodemus, “Except a man is bornagain, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”1 Thatis to say: Except a man is changed, his world – his circumstances – cannotchange. Except a man be transformed from within, he cannot see, perceive norexperience the wonderful realities of the new life in Christ. It is firstwithin, then without. That is a fundamental law in the school ofsuccess. A man can only travel as far and as fast as he travels on his inside.
Change Your Thoughts
We live in a house made ofthoughts. So start to change your thoughts. “Foras he thinketh in his heart, so is he.”2 Men are living magnets.We attract to ourselves per time, the sum total of our thoughts. So I can say, yourthoughts determine your worth! That should tell you where the change mustbegin – in your heart. The thoughts of your heart determine thequality of your life.3 It was William James, the famedHarvard psychologist, that said, “The greatest discovery of mygeneration is that human beings can alter the state of their lives by changingthe state of their mind.” That’s true. It is first within, thenwithout. If you change your world, the world will change for you.
Don’t waste your life trying tochange the world, change yourself!
The Man Who Wanted to Change the World
That reminds me of the man whowanted to change the world. He said:
“I was arevolutionary when I was young and all my prayer to God was: “Lord, give me theenergy to change the world.”
As Iapproached middle age and realized that my life was half gone without mychanging a single soul, I changed my prayer to: “Lord, give me the grace tochange all those who came into contact with me, just my family and friends, andI shall be satisfied.”
Now that I’man old man and my days are numbered, I have begun to see how foolish I havebeen. My one prayer now is; “Lord, give me the grace to change myself.” If Ihad prayed this right from the start, I would not have wasted my life.”
You can change your world. Youcan stop to take what you have put up with thus far. You can change the qualityof your lifestyle. You can improve your standard of living. You can havebreakthroughs, live in health, have a decent house (even build your own) and afulfilling career, indeed a decent life. It is possible. You can live inabundance! Jesus said, “The thief comesonly in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have andenjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).”4
You may not be able to alter yourpast, (you can’t anyway) but you can effect a change inyour future. You may not be able to do anything about where you have been butyou sure can (and must) do something about where you will be. You can!
