#1 Plan Precisely – Business and career ventures require risk to gain reward. However, preparation drastically lowers your chances of risk. The more you “build your wings” before taking a leap, the more likely you are to soar. Precise planning will help you overcome obstacles and reach greater excellence in your business or career endeavors.

“The plans of the diligent lead surely to advantage, but everyone who is hasty comes surely to poverty.” – Proverbs 21:5

#2 Be Assertive – Seek and seize good opportunities. Not all opportunities are laid out in front of you. Sometimes you have to really search for them, or even create them yourself. Don’t wait for the right opportunities to be presented to you—present them to yourself! The many different avenues you discover for yourself will surprise you.

“He who gathers in summer is a son who acts wisely, but he who sleeps in harvest is a son who acts shamefully.” – Proverbs 10:5

#3 Be Persistent – Persistency is crucial to success. The definition of persistence is “firm or obstinate continuance in a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition.” Persistency requires hard work, diligence, perseverance and great patience. Winston Churchill once said, “Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.”

“Poor is he who works with a negligent hand, but the hand of the diligent makes rich.” – Proverbs 10:4

#4 Pursue Excellence – Colossians 3:23 says “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.” Strive for excellence in all you do. The more you strive for excellence in every area of your life, the more habitual it will become. Success consists of countless, tireless, and oftentimes unnoticed acts of excellence. Excellence leads to skill and skill sets you apart.

“Do you see a man who is skilled in his work? He will stand before kings.” – Proverbs 22:29

#5 Always Be Learning – No matter how experienced you may be in your field, there is always more to learn. This should make your endeavors more exciting, knowing there are unturned pages for you to discover. Warren Buffet reportedly spends five to six hours a day reading. "That's how knowledge works," he recently told an investment class at Columbia University. "It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it."

“By knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.” – Proverbs 24:4

 #6 Seek Wise Counsel – Influential scientist Isaac Newton said, “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.” It is important to seek wise counsel from those who have gone before you. You can glean from their experiences and follow in their footsteps and beyond.

“Without consultation, plans are frustrated, but with many counselors they succeed.” – Proverbs 15:22

#7 Be Generous – The Bible tells us many times that generosity leads to financial success. As the body of Christ, we are called to treat our neighbors as ourselves. The Lord receives your generosity towards others as if you are being personally generous to Him. The more we tend to God’s garden, the more fruit He will reap in our lives.

“The generous man will be prosperous.” – Proverbs 11:25

#8 Give it all to God – Surrender everything to the Lord—especially your earthly success. Exercise complete dependence on the Lord for guidance. As the source of all good things, He will surely lead you to peace, joy and prosperity.

“Commit your works unto the Lord and your plans will be established.” – Proverbs 16:3
