Exemption Greetings to you and welcome to another great week in this month of Success. As we continue with our study on the secrets of success, I’ll like us examine yet another secret of outstanding success.
It is the Secret of Diligence.
No one succeeds in life by accident or by luck. Every genuine success is a product of diligence, whether in business, sport, academics or ministry.

According to dictionary.com, to be diligent means to be constant in effort to accomplish something; attentive and persistent in doing anything. By this definition, it can be said that success is not attained by just doing a thing, but doing it with constant effort in order to accomplish something. It is little wonder that many people engage in work but do not succeed because they do not put in constant and relentless effort which defines Diligence.King Solomon of Israel, a successful man himself, explained one of the benefits of diligence thus:

Proverbs 22:29 “Do you see a man diligent and skillful in his business? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men.” AMPC

The scripture above reveals that our placement in life is largely dependent on our diligence. This means that we should not relent, but be constant in effort, persistent and result oriented in the pursuit of our goals because success is our birthright.

God BLESS you.
