SKILL WILL BRING SUCCESS: Introduction (Audio Book Sample)


Thousands of self-help books in print today will tell you all you need to succeed in life is desire and determination. My friend, that is just not all true. Of course, you need desire. Of course, you need determination. But you need more than that. I know people with desire and determination who have not succeeded in life. Having the tools and skills to succeed in life would be best.

 For instance, a farmer can pray for a giant crop. But if he plants the wrong seed, uses the wrong fertilizer, or doesn’t give it the proper amount of water, it’s not going to be a big crop no matter how hard he prays or works and how sincere he is.

 I cannot use my lawnmower to wash my clothes, nor can I use my comb to brush my teeth. I can try, but I won’t be successful. You see, you must have the right tools and the right skills in life to succeed. One of my life scripture verses is Ecclesiastes 10:10. Wise King Solomon tells us,

 “If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed, but SKILL will bring SUCCESS” (NIV, emphasis added).

 You have to have the skills of success to succeed in life. The Bible says, “If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is required.” In other words, if you’re chopping wood and have a dull ax, it takes more effort and strength to get the job done. If your ax is really sharp, it’s not as hard. Here is the good news: the Bible says, “skill will bring success.” This Scripture verse says that God wants you to work smarter, not harder, in every area of your life.

 One of the keys to succeeding in life is being skilled. It’s not enough to want to be successful in your life, in your relationships, in your career, in your finances, and in your schooling. Desire is not enough. Determination is not enough. Dedication is not enough. Prayer is not enough. Working hard is not enough. All of these are important, but they are not enough. You’ve got to have the right skills. The Bible says, “skill will bring success.” Until you learn those skills, you cannot succeed in life. The more skillful you become, the more successful you’ll be.

 You could be the most sincere person in the world, but you will fail at life if you don’t have the right life skills. The good news is skills can be learned. That’s what we’ll look at throughout this book; skills you need to succeed in life and work.

 My goal is to impart the essential life skills you need to live a maximally productive life—spiritually, emotionally, financially, relationally, vocationally, mentally, and physically

 I have not mastered all these skills, but I’m trying every day to put them into practice, and you can too. None of these skills can help you if the principles are not implemented. Wisdom is putting knowledge into action. Some of the skills are very simple. Please don’t dismiss them because they are simple. Many times the smallest things make the most significant impact. Practicing these truths is very important to your growth and development. Do your part, and God always will do His part.

 Moses said: God, “Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom (Psalm 90:12, NIV). This is my prayer for you.

 So join me on this journey as we grow in wisdom and achieve all the great victories God has planned for us in every area of our lives.

 Grace and peace to you,

 Mike Prah
