“But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.” (Psalm 1:2-3)

To be a successful person and really enjoy life the way God planned, you have to use the tools that He has placed in your toolbox. These 5 tools will guide you to your destiny and will help you to make an impact in the world.

Optimism is not some pie-in-the-sky system of beliefs. Optimism is defined expecting the best or belief in the power of good. It’s impossible to think that something good will happen to you when you don’t EXPECT it. Now I’m not saying that everyday will go perfectly, but I believe that if we set our minds on the positive (the blessings of God’s word), we can set our day up for great things to happen. What you believe in ultimately will determine the foundation for your optimism. There is nothing more solid to believe in than the word of God. Grab hold to what God has about you and your future and never let it go. The first tool you need for a successful life is OPTIMISM. Believe that!!

For each and every one of us, there is something that we are passionate about. To truly have a successful life, you must find that thing that will cause you to wake up early in the morning or stay up late at night. It maybe a hobby that you enjoy. It may be some charity that you are involved with. No matter what it is, you will not be a success without passion pumping through your veins.

“Tell me what you pay attention to and I will show you who you are” -Jose Ortega y Gasset

It’s difficult to be a successful salesman if you aren’t excited about your product. When you aren’t thrilled to come home after work, you obviously aren’t passionate about your spouse. It shouldn’t surprise you, then, if you don’t have a successful marriage. If you have lost the passion in your life it is up to you to regain it. Remind yourself what it was about your spouse, your career, your hobby, that you first loved about it.

I guarantee that it won’t take long to fan the flames of passion.
