If like me, you aspire to be a success in today’s rough and tough world, then this masterpiece is for you. And whether you accept it or not, to achieve success in life’s endeavor you will need to understand and follow through the 4 Surefire factors of success.

Before we start talking about factors, let’s talk about the basis… See, we all have our school of thoughts and for me; I love definition because I believe definition shapes our lives and brings out the best in us.

In furtherance, what is success?

Success is defined in The Free Dictionary as “The achievement of something desired, planned or attempted”.

And in the Oxford Dictionaries it is defined as “The accomplishment of an aim or purpose”

You would agree with me that these definitions are quite inventive but I’d like to put it in my own words; success is conceiving something in one’s heart and achieving it irrespective of how small or big it is by positively affecting your society or people in the area of your influence.

So let’s talk about the…….

  Vital Factors of Success

In achieving success you must have these four factors: Imagination, Belief, Action, and Discipline. Of course there are many factors but these four has really worked for me. The most important however is belief.

In order for you to achieve success in anything or perhaps your life you have to first believe. You need to believe in yourself that you can achieve anything.

The good book says, “Whatever the mind can conceive it can achieve.” Hence, belief is in the mind an

d heart. Everything we do in life starts with a thought. Without the thinking process, things may still get done but you can bet that you’ll not get the desired results.

So let’s start….

Imagination: Albert Einstein said, “Your imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions.” I concur with Einstein’s thought because for you to achieve success in life, you must have first seen it, and you will only see it in the realm of imagination.

With imagination you can capture all that you want to become in life and the good thing about it is that it has no boundary. If you would ask me what imagination means, I would tell you simply that it is an image nation where you are allowed to paint the picture of your life. You could either paint it badly or beautifully.

This makes it understandable when Napoleon Hill wrote, “The imagination is literally the workshop wherein are fashioned all plans created by man.”

Undeniably, God is the Creator and He has blessed us with minds to create, too, through the power of imagination. If you can imagine it you can achieve it!

Belief: Belief is a key ingredient of success because when you think hard and truly long for the result of success, it becomes a belief. When you believe hard enough it becomes a conviction and conviction in turn give

way to the crucial sparks that will en-kindle what you have implant from your mind to your heart. “Conviction is the fuel of a positive attitude.”  And conviction plus positive attitude equals success.

Action: Any individual who wants to succeed in life’s endeavor must embrace the word ‘Action’. You might have the best idea in the world; your idea might far surpass those of brother King, John Roebling, Einstein or perhaps Steve Jobs, if you don’t make move by taking action you will succeed in being static at a point. I lo

ve the way Isaac Newton put it when he said, “All objects will remain in a state of rest until a force is applied.” When you take action you position yourself to succeed. Remember, great movies are great moves!

Discipline: Action in itself is not sufficient to increase the chances of success, but disciplined action will. Many have failed as a result of zero discipline in their action. They give themselves excuses as to why they can’t carry out their plans, why they can’t complete a certain task. No wonder my friend Temitope Adelana penned, “Excuses are the tools of the incompetent, monument of nothing. Those that use it are generally unwise and barely make it in life.”

You will need to be sacrificial if you were to achieve a certain degree of success because without sacrifice there would be no victory.

Discipline allows and gives surety to your persistence, especially when you encounter challenges in your journey to success. Please take note that a disciplined man is a committed man and when you’re committed you attract success!


Conclusively, imagination alone will not solve your problem to becoming successful, I have seen folks who spent their lives imagining things but they never amounted to anything. Trust me I have been through it myself. 🙂
