The Place of Training in Journey of Success.

Success is a passionate desire of everybody. Everyone wants to be successful in his or her field of endeavour. I have never seen any man who favours failure more than success. Success doesn't just happen. Therefore, it is worthy to note that success is not a product of chance. Over 75% of successes are induced. It did not come by chance but rather, was necessitated by a number of factors.

In our last article, we x-rayed the place of mentorship in the journey of success. This time around, we will be looking at the place of training in the same journey of success. This is because, we regard success as a journey. It is not a destination but a journey.

Now, what is training and how can it help someone to emerge successful in his or her pursuit? Training is the action of teaching a person or animal a particular skill or type of behaviour through sustained practice and instruction. Training is teaching or developing in oneself or others, any knowledge or skill that relate to specific competencies.

The essence of training is to improve one's capability, capacity, productivity, and performance. Training has a lot to offer when it comes to a successful career. According to a quote by Ann Voskamp, "practice is the hardest part of learning, training is the essence of transformation". Transformation means to get better than the present. Training makes you better than you were yesterday.

A good example can be illustrated with football. Footballers keep training themselves until they become professionals. Nobody was born a professional, it is consistent training and practice that births professionalism. Without training, we tend to remain in our weaknesses, thereby continue to fail in our careers. We must consider training very pertinent to career excellence.

Aristotle puts it this way, "Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act tightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act but a habit.

If we can devote like 15% of our time acquiring training, success will forever be our companion. Training deals with our weaknesses. It help us overcome our weaknesses. It also puts us on the track of productivity. We must keep on training to achieve a sustainable level of success.

To cap up this article, I want to borrow a quote by Tomorrow Hopkins which says that, "You are your greatest asset. Put your time, effort, and money into training, grooming and encouraging your greatest asset".

Best regards
