What to DO When You Are Not Succeeding

Read the statement below…

“If you do what you are supposed to do to get what you desire and persist enough, then you will get what you want.”

Now go back and read it the second time – slowly this time

This statement is what I call my 24-word success statement

I am not a success expert or pastor or anything like that

But I study success – a lot

Especially my own successes

And from studying success, this statement is what I have found to be true

I don’t know what you want

Maybe you want to improve your finances

Maybe you want to get fit

Maybe you want to run successful FB Ads

Maybe you want to get married to a great spouse

That 24-word statement is what you need

Now…you are probably shaking your head thinking “what BS is Toyin saying today?”

So, let me break down the statement for you

That statement is actually based on 4 things which helps you get what you desire

(1) KNOW what you really desire – WHat exactly do you want? Be specific. Have you written it down? Can you see it in your mind? If it fell on your laps, would your recognize it?

This is important because a lot of people want vague things.

E.g. They will say I want to be happy

Or I want more money

Which is a big mistake

If you tell me that you want more money, I could just give you N100

That is more money. Isn’t it?

Which is why it good to be specific

It helps your mental system to help you prepare to look for it

Here is an example:

Let’s say you are a 32 year old Nigerian woman who desires a God fearing husband, you need to be able to define exactly what this means and see this desire in your mind.

You must REALLY desire it so much that it is printed on your mind

There is a difference between knowing something and REALLY knowing it

Without this first part well figured out, the rest will be useless

(2) KNOW the RIGHT things to do to get it:

So, what happens now that you know what you desire?

You want to jump out and start pursuing it, right?

Slow down tiger!

Not so fast.

Even though you desire a smooth and clear skin for instance, if you don’t know the RIGHT things you need to do to get it, you will keep struggling

This is why knowledge comes in

Still going back to our example of someone who desires a God fearing husband, what you need is:

“Tested and proven knowledge that can help a 32 year old Nigerian woman get a God fearing husband”

The good thing is that in today’s world, valuable and organized knowledge is all over the internet for you to tap to use

You just need to be sure that it is the RIGHT knowledge that can help YOU

Yes, you

One of the most important chapters in Napoleon Hill’s book, Think and Grow Rich is where he talked about SPECIALIZED KNOWLEDGE

Specialized knowledge aka the right knowledge needed for you to get what you want is the tricky part here

This is where prayers, books, mentors, coaches come into play.

Most of the time, what prayer does is that it gives you an idea, an insight or a revelation of the right things to do to get what you want.

(3) DO! – Take Massive Action


If you have 1 and 2 down and do nothing, then you shouldn’t complain

Knowing what you want and having the right knowledge won’t magically give you what you want.

You need to start taking massive action

This is where a lot of people FREEZE

That is because – this world is designed in such a way that the actions needed to what we want are usually not easy ones

They require a lot of discipline and consistency

For instance, in order to get a God fearing husband, let’s say the right knowledge has to do with 7 steps

And let’s say one of the 7 steps is that you have to read for 3 hours daily

This is where many will freeze because that is such a hard thing for them to do

They won’t do it

That is why only the few people who take the required based on the right knowledge will succeed.

(4) PERSIST – By all means

I like history.

It was Winston Churchill (Britain’s prime minister during the second world war) who said:

“Never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.”

You see…this life is funny

It is like the creator put up a test in order to really see if people deserved something

Many times, you will follow 1, 2 and 3 above and yet, you still won’t get the results you want

Although most times when this happens, it is usually because the knowledge you are applying isn’t right

Or because you are not applying the right knowledge adequately.

So, a lot of people just give up…

I have realized that good things rarely fall into your laps easily in this world


Sometimes, some good things just show up

But most of the times, they show up because you have PAID THE PRICE

I believe that there is always a way – but you must have it at the back of your mind that your first approach at something most likely won’t succeed

Which is why you always have to back to the planning board to acquire new information, adjust your plans and relaunch

At the end, if you are stubborn and determined, you will be a part of the few who eventually get what they desire.

I am going to write a book on this 24-word statement one day but for now, I hope this has helped you.

May God helps us all
