4 By Oluwafunke Amobi Introduction The world of work today is filled with different definitions of success and failure. Many including Christians believe success is determined by forces out of man’s control, some propagate the philosophy of “luck” as the key determinant of success. In an ever changing world where the only constant thing is change, it simply takes more than luck to succeed. In this session, I will focus on sharing some insights on why it appears that some people ascend to the top of their careers and prosper while others who are equally talented never reach their expectations. 4 Big League Summit – 24 th Kingdom Life World Conference, 2013
