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.

It is only quitters that ultimately fail.
