For generations people have researched what it takes to be successful.  Great thinkers and philosophers have written books and given us quotes about success.  The bible gives us the blueprint for true success and how to be successful in life.  

Here are 10 scriptures you need to know about success:

Refuse good advice and watch your plans fail; take good counsel and watch them succeed. – Proverbs 15:22 MSG 

Using a dull ax requires great strength, so sharpen the blade. That’s the value of wisdom; it helps you succeed. – Ecclesiastes 10:10 NLT

Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. – Joshua 1:8 NIV 

Blessed is the one.. whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.  That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers. – Psalm 1:1-3 NIV 

The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered….the Lord gave him success in everything he did..  Genesis 39:2 NIV 

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25 NIV 

I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.] – Philippians 4:13 AMP new 

Love never fails. – 1 Corinthians 13:8 NIV 

I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time. – Ecclesiastes 9:11 NLT 

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
