ONE MAJOR SECRET OF SUCCESS
I have shared many secrets of success on this blog, and recently I discovered yet another secret of success. This is one major reason why so many people have not made it to the top of their career, job, ministry, academic life and relationship.
This secret is FOLLOWERSHIP. Now you must be wondering what this article is all about. Take a look at the life of successful people, they started from the scratch, they had mentors, people that lead them, rebuked them, corrected them, taught them and more importantly groomed them.
Many want to find themselves at the top without taking the appropriate steps. Many do not want to follow but want to lead. Remember the quote which says that a man that does not respect orders is not fit to give orders himself.
Surprising, many don’t want to be rebuked and corrected at all. They feel insulted when they are told what they did was wrong or was not actually meant to be done that way. They actually don’t have what it takes to carry out the task effectively, and when they are corrected they feel they are taken for granted. The place of followership has been overlooked.
There is no successful person in life that is half baked. If you want to be successful at what you do, you must be thoroughly baked. You must be ready to learn from others, take correction from others and more importantly, humble yourself before superiors. Its either you stay humble or your stumble. Remember that humility costs nothing but buys everything.
Never underestimate the importance of being a good follower. Note for you to get all you need to become a successful person, you need to serve under a qualified leader.
Wishing you all the best this year.
Yours in progress,
