Proverbs 30:25-28 KJV The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;  The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;  The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;  The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings’ palaces.
Success means different things to different people. Whatever your definition of success, by virtue of the fact that you are made in the image of God, you have no excuse to not succeed in your life. “Don’t give in to excuses that can keep you from really living the best life God has for you (Joyce Meyer).

The slothful man saith, There is a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets.
When you are not focused enough in life, every excuse real or imagined, can hinder you. Often, success is just a change of mindset away. “There aren’t nearly enough crutches in the world for all the lame excuses” (Marcus Stroup).

But when you follow it nonetheless, it becomes what it is known for. Such is life. As humans, we go through a lot of processes before we are shaped into who we finally become. The best success stories are from those who allowed themselves to be molded by tough times without giving up. No matter who you are, life happens to all of us. But if we allow ourselves to trust God, He makes all things beautiful in His time.
