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.

Concluding Remarks
17
By Oluwafunke Amobi
I will be sought after (Is. 45:3). Grace will
speak for me in every area of my life. Favour
will over shadow me. Doors will be opened unto
me. I will experience his unusual visitation.
(Ex. 33:16; Ps 84:11; Luke. 1:26-56)
I am called for a purpose, I will fulfill purpose and I will
arrive at God’s ordained destiny for my life. Nothing will cut
me short. I will make a formidable impact in my world for
the Kingdom.
I am convinced beyond every shadow of
doubt, that, every word of prophecy and
every declaration that has been made over
my life this year for good will come to pass. I
live under an open heaven. I am an
overcomer.(Jn 1:1-3; Is 44:24-26).
