A legacy of success through mental toughness

Dr. Ira Van Hilliard began his ministry career at 10 years of age. He was known as “The Wonder Boy Preacher.” He leads New Light Christian Center Church with over 28,000 members, has started his own TV network, credit union, apartment complex, bible institute, several successful organizations, and is an accomplished author.

Anyone can be successful

In 22 chapters, Dr. Hilliard makes it clear that anyone can be successful by applying Godly principles. He discusses such points as, How to set your course for a better life (Ch. 2), the power of perception – the subconscious (Ch. 6), conditioning the mind for success (Ch. 10), mental toughness to solve problems (Ch. 18), and much more.

Principles leading to success

Dr. I.V. Hilliard has a powerful teaching gift; an ability to connect through illustrations and share insight. His brief, profound comments are packed with truth, as, “We are only limited by what we tell ourselves we can or cannot do.”

One of Dr. Hilliard’s key instructional tools is personal life discoveries. He shares concerning true success, stating, “I also discovered that those who are truly successful had a desire to help or even show others how to succeed.”

Dr. I.V. Hilliard conveys potent points with stinging remarks that cause readers to realize truth. Discussing a point relating to personal accountability he quips, “Life is always choice driven and never desire or wish driven. Your future is directly linked to the quality of the choices that you make.” He desires to provoke readers to succeed.

As Dr. Hilliard shares personal success illustrations from his life, readers will gain inside information that will add to their success. He shares, “I would sit quietly and see on the screen of my imagination my church filled to capacity, with people standing in line to get into the next service. I would envision when the call to Christ was made, that the altar would be filled with people committing their lives to Christ.” He now pastors 30,000 people.

To amplify his claims, Dr. Hilliard refers readers to biblical truth. He illustrates the power of imagination, quoting Gen. 11:6 “… and now nothing will be restrained from them which they imagined to do.” This must be used for good.
