Our Focus this Month is on Success, you have written a number of books on Success Principles, how will you define success?

Success is the progressive accomplishment of a God-given goal.

Some people think success is not meant for them, what do you think sir?

What a man will become starts from his inside. For someone to fall for the lie of the devil that success is not meant for him is to be grounded in life. God has not created anyone to be nobody. Everyone He created is meant to be somebody. To be successful in life, you must believe you can.

Some have tried many times without hitting it, what is your piece of advice?

Big shots today were small shots yesterday who kept shooting. Persistence is one of the greatest secrets of success. Trying times are not the times to stop trying, but to keep trying. If you don’t give up, you will ultimately succeed. The secret of success is to keep at it.

What is the difference between success and failure?

Success has to do with the pursuit and accomplishment while failure has to do with quitting. Everyone God created has the capacity to succeed. A man is a failure when he quits trying. And you know what? Failure is a compulsory course in the School of Success. If you are not failing, you are not growing.  Failure is the last step to success. Failure is meant to be a temporary event. It is only quitters that ultimately fail.

What are the qualities that make people Successful?

 Qualities that help people succeed include:


  • Positive attitude


  •  Integrity


  •  Diligence


  • Team spirit


  • Faith


  • Stickability


  • Skill


  • Learning


  • Right company among others.




Can everybody succeed?

Success is meant for everybody. Don’t ever believe the lie that only a few are destined to succeed. If anybody can, then you can!

In your journey to success Sir, how have you been able to handle challenges that come along the way?

Challenges are the food of champions. If you don’t like challenges, you don’t like success. I have faced and still facing challenges because there are different devils for different levels. But what helped and still helping me are faith in God, positive attitude towards difficulties, persistence, focus on where I am going not what I am going through, passion for my mission, building a team, and so on.

What is final advice to the regular visitors to my blog?

Your Final words, sir.

Success is a journey, not a destination. You never arrive in success. You must continue to break your own record because you have only yourself to compete with. God bless you richly.

Thank you Sir for your time.
