3 Things You Should Avoid As A Man If You Want To Be Successful In Life

As children of the covenant, we are all destined for greatness but this can happen if we are ready to pay the price. Every man at the top today paid a price and if you want to be successful in life, you must also be ready to pay the same sacrifice. A critical look at our society today will reveal that most young men and youths have lost precedence in life. One of the major obsessions of this current generation is to make money by hook or crook and this wrong mindset has engulfed many people. 

Whatever you compromise to get, you must compromise to keep. Life will not give you what you want but what you deserve hence you must work for it. You cannot desire your way to the top, you work your way up there. To be great and successful in life, there are certain things you must avoid, especially as a man. Some of them include; 

1. Fraud

Have you ever wondered why so many people who engage in fraud do not go far in life? This idea of making money, by all means, has steered a lot of young men into internet fraud and all sorts of dishonest activities. Take note that you cannot maintain any success you compromise to get. God respects principles and that is why you cannot halt those laws and expect breakthroughs. When you manoeuvre your way to the top at the detriment of others, you can never go far in life. The Bible characterizes such success or breakthrough as smoke because it will soon fade away. Always follow the right principles and make your money the right way if you want to succeed in life.

2. Chasing women 

So many guys do this for fun but the result says it all. So many men and youths have lost priority and that is why the rate of defrauding activities in our society is heightening. Numerous relationships will devastate you if you have not yet found your purpose in life. You cannot wake up in the morning and your number one goal is to start chasing women. The first thing God gave to Adam in the Bible was work and not a woman. This goes to a great breadth to show that there is more to your life as a man than mere chasing women. Several sexual partners will deplete you to the core hence avoid it. Focus on developing and making yourself the right man and see how ladies will come after you. 

3. Abuse of alcohol and drugs

Abuse of alcohol and drugs is very dangerous and all men should avoid this. This vice has led many to their early grave and you will do yourself a tremendous favour if you stay away from it. Abuse of alcohol and drugs can ravage your health and even lead to death. You cannot fulfil destiny when you engage in all these vices hence avoid them. You become a man when you can take full responsibility for your life. 

All guys who want to succeed in life should adhere to these 3 things.
