Success in Life Series – 30 Days for Success
Day 30. Walk in Love! Love never fails, it guarantees success in life. If what we do is not motivated by the love of God the result is only like the sound of a clanging symbol. However, when you choose to walk in love it brings peace, joy, and victory. Choose to walk in love.
Ephesians 5 (NKJV) Walk in Love
5 Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. 2 And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
Day 29. Fight the Good Fight. Success in life does not come without a fight, so make it a good fight. The only way a fight is good is if you win. You are destined to win if you stay in faith, not in fear or doubt. The greatest weapon you have is the Word of God. The harder the struggle the more glorious the triumph. Fight the good fight.
1 Timothy 6:12 (NKJV)
12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Day 28. Humility. Greatness is achieved when we are great in humility. Stay small in your own eyes. Humility is not thinking less of yourself, rather thinking of yourself less. All the glory goes to Jesus.
Matthew 23:12 (NKJV)
12 And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.
Day 27. Be Enthusiastic! Enthusiasm means to be zealous, joyous, passionate, and energetic. You will succeed in whatever you exhibit unlimited enthusiasm. How enthusiastic are you?
Romans 12:11 (NLT)
11 Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically.
Day 26. Have a spirit of excellence! Pursuing excellence in all that you do will bring success in all of your life. Make excellence a habit.
Daniel 6:3 (NKJV)
3 Then this Daniel distinguished himself above the governors and satraps, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm.
Day 25. Generosity! Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, to all the people you can, as long as you can. Be a success! Be generous!
Proverbs 11:24-25 (NIV)
24 One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.25 A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
Day 24. Make no more excuses! Excuses are for those who need them. They keep you trapped in a limited life of failure instead of experiencing the unlimited life of success God has for you. Decide today, No More Excuses.
Luke 14:18-20 ESV
But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it. Please have me excused.’ And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them. Please have me excused.’ And another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’
Day 23. Write your vision. Vision brings provision, it gives direction, it produces discipline, it keeps you focused, and provides your roadmap to success.
Habakkuk 2:2 (NKJV)
2 Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it.
Day 22. Believe! To succeed in life you first must believe that you can. If you believe you can’t , you won’t. If think you maybe, you might. Believe you can and you can!
Mark 9:23 (NKJV)
23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Day 21. Keep Your Ax Sharp. If you become dull you lose your effectiveness, efficiency and productivity – in other words less successful. Invest in yourself regularly – spiritually, mentally, and physically with the wisdom of God. STAY SHARP!
Ecclesiastes 10:10 (NIV)
If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed, but skill will bring success.
Day 19. Work Smart. Success comes not only with working hard, but with working smarter. Work hard at working smart.
Ecclesiastes 4:6 (NLT)
6 And yet, “Better to have one handful with quietness than two handfuls with hard work and chasing the wind.”

Colossians 3:23 (NIV)
23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,
Day 17. Do the impossible – that’s when true success is found. Nothing is impossible. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.
Luke 1:37 (NKJV)
37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”
Day 16. Escape your rut. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. If you’re satisfied with where you are by all means keep doing what your doing, BUT if you want the greater – Do something different and new.
Isaiah 43:19 (NKJV)
19 Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.
Day 15. Unlearn the wrong and untrue that you’ve learned. Unlearning can be harder than learning, but success is as much about unlearning the things that hold you back, so you can replace them with what is right and true.
Romans 12: 2 (ESV)
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

Proverbs 18:15 (NLT)
15 Intelligent people are always ready to learn. Their ears are open for knowledge.
Day 13. It’s all in the attitude. Your attitude not your apptitude, will determine you altitude. Good attitude good success, bad attitude no success.
Philippians 2:5 (NLT)
5 You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had.
Day 12. Keep first things first! Proper priorities produce success. If you put second things first you will lose the first and second. Don’t violate God’s divine order.
Matthew 6:33 (NIV)
33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Day 10. Never give up! If plan A fails -there are 25 more letters in the alphabet. The only way you do not succeed is if you quit.
Galatians 6:9 NIV
Don’t grow weary in doing good for at the proper time you will reap a harvest if you do not give up.
Day 9. The words you speak will either make you or break you. Speak faith filled words – they bring success.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue.
Day 8. Get wisdom and understanding. You then can correctly apply the knowledge of God’s Word which produces a life of success. It is more valuable than gold or silver
Proverbs 4:7 (NKJV)
7 Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.
Day 7. Character and integrity are the foundational stones upon which true success is built. Success in life isn’t determined by what you possess but by who you are.
2 Peter 1:5-8 (NLT)
5 … Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, 7 and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone. 8 The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be…”
Day 6. Live your God given PURPOSE! Discover what God created you to do and do it – everyday!
Ephesians 2:10 (AMP)
10 For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), [a]recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].”
Day 4. Be led by the Spirit. The Holy Spirit will lead and guide you into all truth (John 16:13). He will give you divine direction that will lead to success and prosperity.
Romans 8:14 (NET)
14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.
Day 3. Be disciplined. Success requires you do what you know needs to be done even when you don’t feel like doing it. You must have self control.

28 Like a conquered city with no walls, so is a man who has no self-control.
Day 2. Determine to live every day and every moment by the Word of God.
Matthew 4:4 (NKJV)
4 “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”
Day 1. True success is not defined by worldly values, but by keeping the faith and finishing the race of life God has assigned you. Fulfilling God’s purpose while pursuing Godliness allows you to complete a truly successful journey of life.
2 Timothy 4:7 (NKJV)
7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
