Believe me I might not be religious.... I don't even go to church but I also believe in God and I believe he is the divine creator... This does not limit my thinking of success to religion.... Sometimes a business collapse and you will see the owner blaming some spirit instead of his negligence.... I posted this thread to create an awareness of this thinking.It is based on the individual and what he/she believes in. A number of persons in Africa are usually religious and believe in one thing or the other and attribute that success or failures to these their beliefs. I wouldn't condemn these because I believe in a divine being to. However, we should learn to draw a line between luck and preparedness. A business owner no matter what how religious he is, if the business owner doesn't apply the principles for success in his business, his/her business would never move forward.
