#1 Proper thinking is vital to success (Prov. 23:7).
#2 A person must have a goal if he expects to succeed (Phil. 3:14).

#4 Success is based on honesty with one’s fellow man (Rom. 131:8).
#5 Meeting your obligations is essential to succeeding (Rom. 12:17).
#6 Proper management of time is a must for daily success (Eph. 5:16).
#7 In pursuing success the law must be obeyed (Rom. 13:1).

write them on the tablet of your heart.
So you will find favor and good success
in the sight of God and man.
