PHILLPIANS 3:12-14 
NOT THAT I HAVE ALREADY OBTAINED ALL THIS OR HAVE ALREADY ARRIVED AT MY GOAL, BUT I PRESS ON TO TAKE HOLD OF THAT FOR WHICH CHRIST JESUS  HAVE TAKEN HOLD OF  ME. BROTHERS AND SISTERS, I DO NOT CONSIDER MYSELF YET TO HAVE TAKEN HOLD OF IT, BUT ONE THING I DO: FORGETTING WHAT IS BEHIND AND STRAINING TOWARD WHAT IS AHEAD, I PRESS ON TOWARD THE GOAL TO WIN THE PRIZE FOR WHICH GOD HAS CALLED ME HEAVENWARD IN CHRIST JESUS.


SPOTLIGHT ON SUCCEZZ
 

Spotlight on Succezz was founded in Janaury 2016 by Dr. Rev. Michelle Caple Taylor. The concept behind the site is to connect ordinary hard working individuals to purpose. This can be achieved by Spotlighting not only talents we see in the media who are great role models but people we call friends, family and mentors. 
I came up with the idea after a running opportunity to have my best selling novel Troubles Won't Last Always developed into a TV series. The problem was however a lack of connection for networking, investment and the overall survival and success of a dream turned into reality. At that point I was inspired to bridge the gap. How many of us consider ourselves disconnected from those who had the tenacity to pursue their dreams? 
More importantly the site is inspirational. One of my strongest attributes have always been to walk in purpose. I believe God has ordained each of us for a purpose. Spotlight on Succezz will not only share the success of our talents but share what their secret to success is. My secret to all God has bestowed upon me is faith. Have enough faith to believe all God has for you is yours and then have enough faith to go out and get what belongs to you.
