Diligence & Discipline; Pathways to wealth and success.

Developing diligence and discipline:

 Developing an attitude of diligence and discipline places you in a position of power; a pathway to wealth and success.


Diligence according to Webster dictionary means having a devoted and painstaking work pattern to accomplish an undertaking. In other words, it is having a conscientious attitude to duty, always showing up to do your outmost best in your work or responsibility. It is the unrelenting commitment to achieve a goal or set goals such as; exams, projects or financial goals etc. It reflects ones drive or determination to complete a course of action no matter the obstacle they face.

Being Diligent is the opposite of being lazy or slothful which are barriers to achieving life success. As the book of Proverbs records: ‘The way of a slothful person is as a hedge of thorns, but the path of the diligent is smooth.’  (Proverbs 15.19 – MSG). Life generally gets easier or ‘luckier’ for the diligent. If you desire to achieve lasting wealth and success, you must learn to be diligent in what you do.


Discipline (or Self-discipline) is similar to diligence but slightly different. It involves having a form of self – control. It is your ability to conform yourself to a pattern of rules or positive behaviours, such as personal training or exercises to keep fit. This conditioning can come from an external intervention where one is conditioned by another to conform. It can also be self-imposed through self-control; a personal discipline of keeping regular positive habits over time, to achieve a desired outcome.

It is possible to display diligence to your work without being a disciplined person. However, it is the combination of diligence (dedication to duty or responsibility), and discipline (ability to control ones emotions or actions), that builds greatness and durable success. You need a strong will to be disciplined, otherwise you are vulnerable to life’s distractions and challenges. As the scripture explains : –  Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down without walls.’ (Proverbs 25.28). Allowing lustful and reckless desires to rule your actions without self-control (or discipline) makes you a disaster waiting to happen.

Diligence and discipline are compatible patterns of behaviour as these work best together. Diligence drives you to take positive action continuously, while discipline enables you to keep a firm control on your self and remain focused on achieving your goals. – Positive physical action and a positive mental attitude must align for ultimate success to occur.

The popular celebration of thanksgiving is an expression of gratitude, especially to God.  You acknowledge God’s goodness, praising and thanking Him for all His blessings; Protection, provision, life, love, family etc.

It is difficult to offer genuine words of appreciation to anyone without offering words of praise. An expression of praise and thanksgiving activates more favors to us. For instance, you draw a positive response from praising or commending a colleague for a job well done. This applies to God also, as with every good parent, when you display heartfelt gratitude for good things they have done, they are happy to do so much more.

My family and I recently attended a beautiful thanksgiving service. It was a refreshing experience listening to families share their reasons for being so thankful to God in spite of everything going on the past 18months. We were reminded that there is always something to be thankful for no matter ones circumstances.

The Powerful benefits of Praise and Thanksgiving is revealed in the following scriptural verses;

Born for a Purpose;

No matter your background or how you were conceived, you are born for a purpose and your birth is not an accident!

Your conception may have seemed like an accident, but God, the Creator who works out every circumstance for good, knows how to produce something good from an unprecedented situation. This could be your situation – Be aware that God knew you before you came forth and has a good purpose and destiny for you to fulfil despite the circumstances of your birth.

This is evidenced in the following scriptural verse;

” Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you,” Jeremiah 1.5

Some people insist they are not supposed to be here because their conception and birth was unplanned; Such as being the product of rape or other unplanned conception. These compelling reasons sometimes result in someone living a reckless, unfulfilling life, void of purpose.

On the contrary, everyone has a purpose no matter the circumstance of their birth and can have a fulfilled life by identifying what that purpose is.

How to identify your purpose and fulfil your potential;
