The Prosperous Key to Making Dreams a Reality
Take a look at the lives of successful people and you’ll see that they have encountered final outcomes in one or more aspects of their lives from this range.
The exception: When it comes to the prosperous areas of their lives, the successful results are from putting into practice the simple, but extremely powerful skill of diligence.
Diligence was the key that helped them make their dreams a reality.
“Do you see a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings.”
— Proverbs 22:29
Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, and Bill Gates are just a few of the people who have used the skill of diligence.
Why Do So Few People Fully Utilize Diligence?
The truth is it is a skill that can be learned by anyone regardless of their education, background, or IQ. True diligence is a rare, valuable trait that runs contrary to human nature.
Everyone has characteristics that happen to be part of the human condition. These types of characteristics create our natural drives, tendencies, strengths, as well as weaknesses. Diligence, although, is just not one of them.
Actually, the characteristic universal to all mankind is the desire, or drive, for quick gratification. We desire as much as we can acquire, as quickly as we can acquire it, by using as little work as possible. This is our human nature. Everyone has a natural tendency to pursue the path of least resistance.
“The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.”
— Proverbs 21:5
Thankfully, in spite of this natural tendency, we can decide to undertake a path of greater resistance and grow diligent in the pursuit of every venture, assignment, or goal. And when a person develops this type of diligence, it is possible to achieve incredible success in any significant area of life.
Diligence to Prosper
Diligence is often described as a persistent and hard-working effort in doing something.
Diligence is working at something with persistence in addition to working smart. Doing it right, or to put it another way, doing it on time to the highest possible standards achievable, regardless of what is required or anticipated. It means bringing creative thinking, persistence, and in many cases incorporating other individuals as well as outside resources into the work to achieve incredible success.
Seem difficult and too much to handle?
That is because true diligence consists of numerous qualities. That’s the reason true diligence is extremely rare and hard to find. However, let me just say, you can begin incorporating these qualities of excellence today and start developing the skill of diligence. And you need to know that anybody can develop it.
Why not develop this rare, but powerful skill of diligence that is your prosperous key to helping make your dreams a reality?
Make no mistake about it; prosperous outcomes are possible when we have perfected the skill of diligence. We can make use of it in all critical areas of our lives, in any undertaking or goal; to quickly achieve amazing results. We can make use of it to change lousy careers into great careers; okay relationships into wonderful relationships; and a faltering business into a prosperous one.
May you develop the powerful skill of diligence and achieve a life of growing prosperity!

Acknowledge the Almighty God with Thanksgiving
Who Was the First U.S. President to Declare a National Day of Thanksgiving?
In light of celebrating Thanksgiving here in the U.S. tomorrow, I thought I’d share a bit of history I ran across recently at Paul’s Primer. (Be sure to check out his site for more details.)
So do you know who the first U.S. President was to declare a National Day of Thanksgiving?
Thursday, November 26th was proclaimed the first Thanksgiving Day by President George Washington on October 3, 1789, and designated by the national government of the United States of America.
“Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me ‘to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.’” — President George Washington
President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be celebrated on the last Thursday in November of 1863, and since then it has been observed annually in the United States.
The above proclamation by President George Washington is so powerful!
Just think if the majority of us were still practicing this today?
- Acknowledging the providence of the Almighty God
- Obeying His will
- Grateful for His benefits
- Humbly requesting His protection and favor
- Government representatives requesting this of the people
- Public thanksgiving and prayer to God
- Acknowledging with grateful hearts the many favors of the Almighty God
- Thanking God for a peaceable government for our safety and happiness
May we all, with grateful hearts, acknowledge the Almighty God with the Thanksgiving He deserves!
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours –
God bless you,
