1. Diligence:
This is a persistent and hard working effort in doing something. The scripture gave a reference on hard work that whatever you find your hand doing, do it with all your might. Bishop David Oyedepo once said that hard work does not kill but it purifies, therefore engage diligence in whatever you do.

2. Determination:
This takes you to the place and time of your success. Every big success is nothing but a cumulative of small steps taking overtime e.g. Solomon was a determined man and he built a temple for God.

3. Discipline:
The bible says in proverbs 18:9 that (he that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster). Take control over your lifestyle, put your body under subjection, limit your self from every obstacle that would hinder you from acquiring your vision. Sometimes to do what is right, we have to be steady and give up the things we love the most. Play today and pay tomorrow or pay today and play tomorrow.

4. Courage:
Have faith in yourself. Courage is the ability to control fear in the face of hardship and danger. Situations will arise when pursuing your vision but refuse to give up to fear, and remember that fear is faith's worst enemy.

5. Perseverance:
Charles Spurgeon said that by perseverance, the snail reached the ark. Have a continued action and belief in yourself especially during difficulties and setbacks. Always remember that there is dignity in labor.

The price for success is hard work; you can always motivate yourself to work hard by always keeping your dreams before you. Every big success is a cumulative of small steps worked out, consecutively taking over time. There shall be oppositions on your way to success; this is where perseverance comes in. Don't dwell on the pains of oppositions but rather focus on the joy of accomplishment. Remember that the "the opposition you fight today may be your position tomorrow".
