5 triggers to sucess



We all in one way or the other desire success in life but only few known what exactly to do in other to trigger the success they desire. Before I go on giving the 5 trigger for success, I will first define the word “Success” as pattern to life.

What is success in life?

Being successful means the achievement of desired visions and planned goals. success can be a certain social status that describes a prosperous person that could also have gained fame for its favorable outcome. The dictionary also describes success as the following: “attaining wealth, prosperity and fame”



  1. Opportunity

There no way we can write about opportunity without mentioning these two closely related words- opportune and fortune.  Opportune means happening at time that is most convenient for someone or most likely lead to success. Fortune is defined as good luck, success or good experiences. To be successful you must first of all learn to locate opportunities around you.  You must first of all learn to seize the happenings around you to make fortune.

Here is a story of a brother living in a remote town in African and how he was able to seize opportunity to make a fortune. There was scarcity of kerosene in the town, he seized the opportunity by going to the village to catch fire wood  and at the end sale to people who are in need of it.

Let’s look at ways of locating opportunity.

Ways of locating opportunity
  • By a search: Even the holy Bible says “Ask and you shall be given, seek and ye shall find; knock and the door shall be open unto you.”

What you don’t seek, you will not find. In other to be successful, you must first of all conduct a search on where an opportunity is `open  for you. And if you find one, learn to seize the opportunity. After a search, and no result then move to the next step.

  • Create opportunity: Creating an opportunity is not an easy task. It is the process of using your talent or the skills you possess to create an opportunity. Take for example: Mark Zurkaburge created an opportunity for himself by using facebook to connect people around the world.  If you can create an opportunity, you will be happy all the days of your life.
  • Catch opportunity: At times, you don’t need to search nor create an opportunity, you just find them starring at you. All you have to do is utilize the opportunity.
  • Utilize opportunities: One thing is just find opportunities and another thing is to utilize it. The ability to utilize an opportunity will give you the success you deserve.


  1. Creativity: Creativity is the ability to create. Every event in life is invented, and I define inventions as intuition plus action. Invention is resourceful thinking. When it comes to creativity, it is the use of the mind to create what helps to solve a problem in the environment you live and at the end make fortune from it.


  1. Ability: The ability to do something is the quality or skill that you have, which makes it possible for you to do it. Ability is rooted from the word “able”. You need the trigger of ability to succeed, because as long as you see yourself as being unable to succeed, you will never have the ability to.
  2. By faith: faith is the ability to see things as if they exist. When it comes to been successful, the power of faith cannot be neglected.  The most outstanding success stories are of people with a possibility mentality. People who see that things can be done are the ones who get them done.
  3. Responsibility: Now let’s consider the final trigger that will land you right in success. One wise man said “Responsibility is the price for greatness”. Another word for responsibility is self-discipline. That is bringing yourself under rules and laws in order to attain your ultimate goals in life.


CONCLUSION: The road to success runs uphill, so do not expect to break any speed records”. Indeed, the road to success runs uphill, people who are over-relaxed on the way and are not pushing uphill never get there. You will go up if only you apply the 5 triggers for success discussed above.
