Getting people to listen to you (2)

‘The Lord gave him success in everything he did.’ Genesis 39:3 NIV

The second credential you need when it comes to getting people to listen to you is: success. Credibility doesn’t come from knowledge alone; it comes from results. When people want to succeed, they seek advice from those who have actually accomplished something. When you’re successful, there will always be those who want to listen to you. And if you have a proven track record in an area where they want to succeed, your credibility goes through the roof. So what does it take to be a success? Many different things. Here are a few:

(1) Habits. Everybody wants to succeed, but few are willing to pay the price. You don’t determine your future; you determine your habits and your habits determine your future. The secret lies in your daily routine. To succeed you must make a habit of doing what those who are unsuccessful don’t do.

(2) Opportunity. A successful person makes hay from the grass that grows under the other person’s feet! They don’t restrict their efforts to the hours when the sun shines. They recognise that success takes aspiration, inspiration, and perspiration.

(3) Persistence. Success means getting back up each time you fall. Scientist and inventor Louis Pasteur said, ‘Let me tell you the secret that has led me to my goal. My strength lies solely in my tenacity.’

(4) God. Abraham Lincoln said, ‘I believe the will of God prevails; without Him all human reliance is vain; without the assistance of that divine being I cannot succeed; with that assistance I cannot fail.’ God gave Joseph ‘success in everything he did,’ and He wants to do the same for you!
