There are many people who want to succeed in life but have you really ask yourself why only few of them eventually achieve this dream?
In most cases, only two out of 10 people successfully realized their dreams of becoming a well-known philanthropists, rich man or a role model.
The remaining eight individuals neither achieve their dreams of being rich nor become better people in life.
The question is — why is this so? why do most people fail to reach their goals and ambition despite their bright background or wonderful potentials they portrait while growing up?
Having considered so many possible factors and conditions, Perfect Life’s Ibukun Italoye has come up with five questions you must answer before you can achieve your dream of becoming a wealthy individual in life.
I hope you read this write-up with total concentration and be truthful to yourself while providing answers to the questions.

Providing answer to his question requires you to know who you are — not just your name, family or location, but everything you must know about yourself including your potentials, quality, self-esteem and attitude.
2. What Is My God-given purpose on earth?
Like it or not, everyone has at least one purpose or mission to accomplish on earth. It is now left to you to find what you mission really is.
What is it you really love to do? What do you easily do without stress or any problem?
What is it that you love doing not because of the financial benefits attached to it?
Your mission might just be right in what you love to do — you just need to find a way to develop it so much that the world will see.
