When it comes to success, we have different views on what it means to actually be successful. To me, success firstly means to know Christ. It also means that as well as knowing Christ, you also pursue your purpose, have a loving heart and prosper in relationships with others and your career.
Here are a few different habits of successful women:
1. Pursues the heart of God
Eternal love and greatness lays within the Lord. He is our everlasting light and our beloved. To pursue Him also causes us to transform and grow in amazing ways.
But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
2. Pursues her purpose
To pursue your purpose is so important. Your purpose is the exact reason why you are on earth in the first place, the Lord has positioned you here for such a time as this! He has a divine plan for you to do something in this world.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works. Which God prepared in advance for us to do.
3. Serves and loves others
True successful women are not selfish, they seek to love and help others in any way they can. Just like Jesus, He had a strong desire to help, love and save people.
Love others, as I have loved you. So you must love another .
4. Rises early and plans out her day
Successful ladies love to plan out their days in order for them to be productive with their time and organised with their daily tasks.
She gets up whilst it is still night to provide food for her family and portions for her female servants.
5. Takes care of herself
It is so important to take care of yourself, it makes you feel much better as well! Take care of yourself physically and spiritually. The Holy Spirit lives within you.
1 Corinthians 6: 19-20
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were brought with a price. Glorify God with your body.
6. Takes good care of her appearance
This doesn’t mean putting on lots of makeup and false lashes. It means making the effort to have a tidy appearance and be the best person you can be on the outside as well as the inside. Whatever makes you feel comfortable.
She makes coverings for her bed, she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
7. She sets goals and strives to achieve them
We must always be aiming to achieve goals, a lot of the goals that we have, God has planted them in our hearts. Always pray about your goals and give them to God.
2 Chronicles 15:7
Be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.
8. She stays positive in every season of life
Positive mindsets bring positive outcomes! Successful ladies try their best to remain positive. I know its not easy, and we are all human. But lets aim to be the best positive person we can be and trust in the Lord!
Strength and honour are her clothing. She laughs at the days to come
9. She is wise with her finances
It would be foolish as a women to waste every penny we have on clothes and makeup. I notice a lot of successful women like to treat themselves, but they always tend to invest in back into a business or using it to help someone in need. The money of a hardworking woman is never wasted. Spend wisely and consider how you can help those in need or profit from investing into another project you may be passionate about.
She considers a field and buys it. Out of her earnings, she plants a vineyard.
10. She studies God’s word
The bible is the Holy book that we should keep close to our hearts throughout our whole journey of life. In it is lessons, truth and actually the word of God (Read John 1).
Through the studying of the word along with the help of the Holy Spirit, it gives you more knowledge, more insight, more understanding and more wisdom. It draws you nearer to God and helps to transform you to walk in the ways of Christ.
Once you truly get into God’s word, you could never be the same again.
The word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double edged sword. It penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
11. She loves herself
Once you find out who you are in Christ, you will start to truly love yourself more. It can be quite hard to move forward prospering in life if you think lowly of yourself because others sometimes may be able to see that. If you don’t believe in yourself, not much other people will too. But God loves you, and He cares very much for you. Continually read about His love for you in the Bible and seek His face in prayer and fasting. He will build you up and restore all that was lost.
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he
For I know the plans I have for you. Plans for you to prosper to give you a future and a hope
The Lord longs for you to prosper in every area of your life and He loves you dearly. It all starts with you. Your heart, mindset and spirit. Ask the Lord to have His way and continue to follow Him xx
God bless xx
