Success is a choice.Destiny is a lonely path.Every man has been given power of choice,you can choose success or failure.It is a choice.Nobody prepares for failure but failure can become a weight or wings.Truth is bitter only few men many can swallow it. 1. STINGINESS: the secret of living is giving and there is no happiness in having , but only in giving.you cannot beat the law of nature,there is one who scatters yet increase more , there is one who withholds more than is right, it leads to poverty,the measure of you life is not in its duration but donation .A stingy man will never live a fulfilling life.Givers never lack.A stingy man is a cursed man, because his life will never benefits anyone, when you cease to give you cease to exist.A stingy man is not living but only exist .One of the signs of a wicked man is stinginess .A generous soul will be made rich ,the test of generosity is not how much you give but how much you have left .What you give LIVES . Eleanor Roosevelt said , when you cease to make a contribution you begin to die .if you have give , if you lack give. 2. LAZINESS: Have you ever study the life of an ant ?have you consider her lifestyle? Having no captain, overseer or ruler .Ant provides her bread in the summer , gathers her food in the harvest.There are kinds of laziness,the most dangerous is MENTAL LAZINESS.If you are lazy mentally your productivity will be affected,any nation whose leaders are mentally lazy will bring the nation into haught , No progress will be evident.One of their strongest language is EXCUSE .The lazy man says “there is a lion outside’’ . I shall be slain in the street.lazy people are gossipers.Ant utilizes its energy and resources economically .if laziness turns us from our responsibilities,poverty may soon bar us from legitimate rest we should enjoy,to overcome laziness take a few steps towards change,set a concrete realistic goal,figure out the steps needed to reach it and follow those steps. Pray for strength and persistence.To keep your excuses from making you useless,stop making useless excuses.Nearly all failure comes from those who have the habit of making excuses .if you are good at making excuses,its hard to excel at anything else. 3. HASTE: The slowest thing in life is the haste of a fool Haste makes waste, If care is not taken peer pressure, will force you out your vision and goals. It takes patience to discover good things,you are bond to miss opportunity if you don’t learn to do things with patience, learn to plan diligently, take your time, analyse yours step and goals don’t be in a haste. Those faithful completion of a mundane tasks is an accomplishments, such work is patiently carried out according to a plan. Diligence does not come naturally to most people, it is a result of strong character. Don’t look for quick and easy answers. A man with an evil eye hastens after riches and does not consider that poverty will come upon him. To be hasten in spirit is dangerous, you will never find your bearing, work smart not hard .A lazy man make hasty speculation,nothing worthwhile ever happen in a hurry . so be patient your success has less to do with speed and more to do with timing and direction. 4. GLUTTON AND DRUNKENESS: Invest in your mind not your stomach,your mouth can be your grave if not properly curdle.Your mind is your wealth , strength and capital,your mouth can become your savings, you can’t eat your cake and have it.For drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty and drowsiness will cloth a man with rags .It is not everything you see eat and drink. Food and wine is good for the body but it must be in controlled.Let me alert you the dangers of wine : i. It dulls sense ii. It limits clear judgement iii. It lowers the capacity for control iv. It destroys a person’s efficiency.To make wine and end in itself , a means of self indulgence or as an escape from life to misuse it and invite the consequences of the drunkard. Many who spend many hours drinking and partying would die of hunger and thirst .Our pleasures if not control may destroy us .. 5. FRIVOLITY: Why do you buy things you don’t need to impress those who do not like you ?those whose mind are not under control are wasters and most often times they are empty headed personalities,to be around such is dangerous .Anyone who follows frivolity will have poverty enough,they tend to oppress others with what is relevant and not relevant,they claim to be big spenders in the society , to territories those around them , they prefer to waste money than to contribute to the growth of others ,their life is full of emptiness .Nature abhors waste .Remember not to give your strength to women. 6. EYESERVICE: Wake up and smell the coffee . To pretend to be who you are not is dangerous.I hear people say this phrase “ Fake it till you make it” don’t give what you don’t have .let me tell you those who want to impress the “ RICH ” will surely come to poverty . Don’t gain the favor of the rich by giving what you don’t have. “ Do not impress people to press to your life. ” 7. IDLE CHATTER: Nature does not accommodate vaccum . In all labor there is profit. Mere talk of lip will lead to poverty .It often said that you are wasting time but the truth of the matter is that you can not waste time you can only waste your time.Words without action leads nowhere . Idle hand is devil’s workshop,your time is your life , until you set your priorities right , you always experience shortage of time .Have you taken time to analyse your goals and vision .it is only fools that multiplies word. Idleness hands will cause your house to leak,work brings profits,talks brings poverty .Do not allow idleness to deceive you for a while , you give him today he stills tomorrow from you . 8. OVERSLEEPING : To much of everything is bad one of things that easy kill human brain is oversleeping .it reduces your efficiency and your ability to reason.Its good to sleep and rest your brain after strenous daily work but it must be moderate,those last few moments of sleep are delicious .We savour them as we resist beginning another work day but be warn against giving in to the temptation of sleeping instead of working,this does not mean we should never rest God gives the jews the Sabbath, a weekly day of rest and restoration .But we should not rest when we should be working .If you love sleep you will go poor.Being willing to work hard and do one’s best at any job giving us is a vital part of wise living .we work hard not to become rich ,famous or admired, although those may be by products but to serve God with our very best during our lives .A man that open his eyes will be satisfied with bread .There is no award for those who oversleep. 9. STUBBORNESS:Those who are not willing to learn new ideas , concepts , listen to instruction,and guidance from those who know more than them will end up in penury .In the multitude of counsel there is safety .Some people have gone through the path you about to go learn from their experiences and falls etc .Stubborness or rebellion is a character deficiency . if you are stubborn you would not regard correction,you would observe that most poor people are obstinate .Discretion is lacking in them.Discretion is the ability to tell right from wrong .Be open to those who are willing to help you .
