A Toolbox For Life – Part 2
There are thousands of self help books in print today that will tell you this. They’ll say all you need to succeed is desire and determination. It’s just not true. I know a lot of people who have desire and determination and have not succeeded in life. It’s partially true. Of course you need desire. Of course you need determination. But you need more than that. You’ve got to have the right tools in life to succeed and you’ve got to have the right skills in life to succeed.
Ecclesiastes 10:10 from the Bible and it says this: “If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed but SKILL will bring SUCCESS.” You have to have the skills of success in order to succeed in life. It’s not just good, sincere desire and determination and I want to succeed. You have to have the skills. Put them in your tool box for life. These are life skills that we need to be all God wants us to be and all we want to be in life.
