And to do that, you need to make effort of pursuing a positive agenda, which comes with you striving for better outcomes, making sacrifices, advancing beyond your struggles and most importantly putting God first. And with these attributes, you will eventually achieve your Goal…

And after you have earned what you toiled for, what do you do with it?

Value it and tell your story to inspire others. For Success is deeply valued, if not handed over to you and it will always remain firm because you toiled for it.
It is about time you Earn that Position, Improvement, Reward and that rightful place because you worked for it and deserve it, plus every other thing it comes with.
